This was a new restaurant to us. It's very casual and located just outside the entrance to the movie theater at Cottonwood Mall. It's seat yourself - which made me wonder if we would be served in a timely manner but I did not need to worry. Our server came over promptly with menus and to take our drink order.... More

I end up here because of limited choices in the mall for food and they have a "vegetarian" burger choice. Being what it is it's a compromise for vegetarian picks. The service once the order is taken is painfully slow. I sit at the counter all the time and observe the chaos in the line kitchen.Ask a question about the... More

We arrived around 9 pm and were greeted promptly with a welcoming demeanor. Our server, Lilly, was professional, quick, and friendly. The combination of the atmosphere, service, and food, made us feel like we got in Doc's time machine and went back to the 50's. It was a perfect escape from the daily routine as every employee greeted us at... More

We waited an hour for our food. The waiter was friendly but slow. We had to ask for refills on our drinks. Manager gave certain people a discount for the wait. We were there before they were. The food is good but not worth the price and the wait.

I'm a history fanatic, so getting to dine in an authentic 50's diner is pretty cool. I love the classic diner fare (burgers, fries, and shakes) but my jaw literally dropped when I saw the prices. $8.99 for a burger and an additional $4.50 to make it a meal? Hell would literally have to freeze over before I paid $13.49... More

50s themed, I absolutely love this place. Located inside a mall, when you step inside you're greeted and told to sit wherever you like. Great green chili burger and cheese fries. I enjoyed it so much I went back the next day and tried their grilled chicken BBQ sandwich on sour dough bread. This time with a vanilla malt. Yumm!

I have been coming here since 1996. It is a comfort spot with comfort food and great memories over the years. The quality has always been consistent over the years with very good food almost always. I hope they never change a thing because this is "The Corner Malt Shop" in my life. To many occasions to mention... I love... More

Fun atmosphere mixed with great food makes for a fun experience. Everyone loves the food there and also the atmosphere of dancing waiters to the music you can pick at your table. Everyone will enjoy.

Took a couple 13 year old girls to the one at Cottonwood Mall. I figured that the place would be overpriced, but didn't realize the food would be only average. The girls liked the entertainment.
