Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A pretty cool interior to this restaurant which is much better than it's exterior. Servers were polite and efficient. Food was reasonably priced but mediocre in quality. Sorry, won't be back.

Nice decor and done out like all American diner. Good choice of foods that you would expect at a diner. Very reasonable and large portions. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Will definitely go back and try something else. Had chicken burrito and chips. Not bad...for £7.95.More

Food was a lot better than the last time I was there. The staff seem friendly enough but seem to be more interested on looking out the window than serving. The food came out before we even got our drinks which was a bit annoying...but what can you do.More

We went here before the cinema mid week. It wasn't too busy, just a few tables occupied. The staff were very friendly and attentive. I really liked the American theme here, a bit different to the normal burger style place. The food I ordered was...the calamari for starter and trio of burgers for mains. Would definitely return.More

Took the family here for dinner, we all enjoyed great food and service. Lovely ribs and loaded fries, Burgers and Chicken strips. Waiters and waitresses were really friendly and serviced us really quickly. Look forward to coming back to Elgin just to go here, definitely...well worth a visit. Good value for money.More

Great food and good experience. Second time we have come here. It’s better this time than the first time. I haven’t had a hot dog in years. Absolutely loves it with the pretzel bun. Fries are lightly seasoned and yummy. Coleslaw is the best we...have had in ages. Husband had burger. He thought it was very good. (He even ate the salad and slaw!). Niece had garlic bread pizza and onion rings. Onion rings were huge so sadly some had to stay behind. All in all great food and will come back. Service excellent. The only slightly spoiling thing was a very loud table of drinkers nearby and it was only mid afternoon. Real sable prices all things considered. Thanks again.More

The wait for the food was quite long, the sauce in the ribs was unbearably smoky, the chicken in one of the burgers was over cooked, hard and inedible. The milkshakes were great, as was the slaw. Probably won’t be back.
