“enjoyed our meal so much we went back the next day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

Really good food and the diner atmosphere is fun. I had fried chicken the first time we ate there and it was excellent. It reminded me of the chicken I used to get at a diner when I was a child. The 2nd time we ate here I got a patty melt and it was very good. My husband enjoyed his roast beef dinner and the next day he had a BLT that was very good.They have done a good job recreating a classic American diner.

“A good choice for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Nice atmosphere and good food. Seating outside and inside available, we sat inside. Staff were friendly and service was rather quick. It's in the downtown area among a number of other restraunts. We didn't have trouble finding parking closeby.

We had the potato skins which were good. My wife had a burger which she enjoyed, it was nice they didn't charge extra for her to have a salad as a side instead of fries. I had a grilled chicken salad which was good.

“Good Diner Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

Good place for family or business meetings. Everything you would expect in a themed diner with good food, service downtown views and in summer you can have lunch on the sidewalk. Not rushed or pushy as some diners tend to be.

“Diner Breakfast with 50s Theme”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

This is a cute little place with standard diner fair. Breakfast was good. The best part was sitting outside on Main Street in beautiful morning temperature and just having a relaxing breakfast. Nothing fancy. Just good.

“Ehhh... Wont do that again.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

We (three of us) had just left Colorado National Monument and were looking for something to eat and stumbled across this place. Loved the 50's theme atmosphere and the radio they had going. The food left a lot to be desired and for hot dogs and hamburgers we spent right around 50.00. Wayyy over priced. We had three milkshakes to go and have to say they were the worst milkshakes ive ever had. Very bitter and not at all what a milk shake should be. Its like they took nesquick with no sugar and mixed it in with some cream. Service was ok. Parking is a pain

Our burgers start at $6.95 and are fresh 6oz. Sterling Silver ground chuck hand packed daily. We have won the best burger in town twice. Our hot dogs start at $5.25 and are Boars Head all beef in natural casing. These prices include your side of fries, salad, slaw, chips, soup, etc. We use nothing but the highest quality products including our ice cream. Our shakes are made of 3 scoops of real ice cream from the Shamrock Foods Dairy, NOTHING added. I'm sorry you feel you paid too much, but I'm not sure where you are used to eating and there is no accounting for taste. The only places in this town I know of whose prices are less than our are fast food.
