We were so excited about this place due to it's decor. The food was cheap which was great. We ordered chicken nuggets and a chili dog. The dog tasted like it was soaking in water all night and had NO flavor, my mom was gagging...More

I love 50's diners, and so was very excited to try this place out. The decor is 50's, but seemed kinda old. They have a big train track overhead, but it didn't seem to be working. The place just seemed dingy overall. Our waitress was...More

Cold, cold food. Untrained servers (whom are more eager to receive your gratuity than serve you) a horribly arrogant owner who is in financial distress and a restaurant with no visable management. Closing times change depending upon the traffic and food that is extremely overpriced...More

My burger was underdone, and was more lettuce and tomato than beef. Husband's grilled chicken sandwich had a big piece of fat in the middle. Kiddos chicken fingers were burned. Not my idea of fun. Was less than thrilled to pay $30+tip. I agree with...More

We took our children for ice cream and sat at the counter. The servers (about 4-5 of them) stood around, talked about how they had been fired and rehired, about the owner negatively, used foul language in front of our kids. One quoted, "this town...More
