decent fare but certainly not as good as other burger joints. many people like this place for breakfast but we only had dinner. Service was slow but the guyz were all very friendly, and kept promising the food was on its way (so, yeah, the kitchen calls the shots). Teens and parents all found the food to be okay, but nothing to get excited about. Sides were delivered luke warm. Best not to go when it is too full. For those who like loud music and poor acoustics, this is your old-time diner with a special retro flair (california, i think)

Popped in for weekday brunch. Hubs had berry pancakes and I had French toast and a mimosa. The $10 mimosa decent but honestly if you plan to get 2+ just get the special. Mine was strawberry but it was just a reg mimosa w a pinch of berry flavor. My French toast was excellent. Could have eaten double. Hubs pancakes a disappointment. Soggy in middle and burnt. Like they were cooked where some burnt bacon had been. You could smell it on them. But they slapped the two burnt sides together and put them on the bottom of the stack so that was unnecessary. Hubs not one to complain and also not one to not finish which he didn’t. Maybe an off day. Their menu is huge and goes w their retro Hollywood theme. Great decor. A bit warm like the A/C was very low. Mixed on if we’d try again. Service was fine. Nothing exceptional and it was slow.

Thank you for your comments. We are always working on improving our services, so we appreciate your feedback. We're glad you enjoyed your French toast, but we're sorry to hear about your husband's pancakes - we would have made him a new order on us! Again, thank you for your honest feedback. We had an off day, and we definitely hope you'll give us another chance!
