Good food, wide selection, and great value. Tasty sandwiches. Made the quick lunch before airport (about 30 minutes to Indianapolis Airport)! Grilled tenderloin is massive! Loved the pickled veggies on the beef sandwich! Ruben sandwich was also excellent! Rock-Cola 50's Cafe. Indy.

We had a fun time stopping by for our first visit. It is a tiny place, with maybe ten booths total and about as many stools. The food was all hot. The decor is dated (to the 1950s). They sell Choc-Cola, which is mainly why we came, as my kids adore this stuff. We will definitely go again in the... More

When they pointed to the buffet, I thought "THAT'S a buffet?" But when I checked it out, I had to give it a try. It was WONDERFUL and included HIGH-QUALITY FOODS. Unlimited bacon (some of the best bacon you've ever had), sausage patties, smoked sausage, and ham...that's right FOUR MEATS. Scrambled eggs on the buffet, plus they offered to make... More

We stopped in on our way through town based on reviews I found online and it lived up to the reviews and then some! We were a pretty large group and it's a somewhat small place (part of the reason I loved it so much) so we seemed like we were taking over but they got us taken care of... More

After reading some of the reviews I was kind of excited about visiting this place, but as is often the case, the reality didn't really live up to the hype for us. The place is small and kind of cozy with some 50's/60's memorabilia on the walls which was kind of neat to look at, especially if you were alive... More

We drove here after reading good things about it. My husband loves to find old fashioned diners. The photo is flattering. It does have lots of great memorabilia, but most things on the table and walls were in need of a good cleaning. The front windows were covered with handprints. My husband loved his sandwich, Mr. Big Stuff. It was... More

I have always wanted to visit this restaurant and finally got the chance to. I really like 50's decor and they had a lot of it! There are only a few booths, two tables outside, and a few chairs at the counter. At 1:30 in the afternoon all of them were full! We ordered a Poor Boy and a Grilled... More

Small in square footage but big in portions and grand on friendliness. The owners and support staff are happy to be of service and are proud to serve nice big portions of shrimp, huge burgers, great fries and share a little nostalgia. Like many we passed it many times - like others know suggest you stop by and give them... More
