The food was all great especially the home fries. The Egg creams were delicious! Nice selection of ice cream sundaes. Wish they had 50s music playing to add to the 50s feel of the place.

The food was great, as were our milkshakes and my son's ice cream sundae. Food came out really fast, with great sized portions. Staff was very friendly. We would definitely eat here again!

A cute 50's style diner with a big menu of comfort foods. Service was quick and efficient. Food was tasty and portions were large. Was busy and noisy but we enjoyed the stop. Recommend stopping in for family atmosphere and quality food.
