“It was ok....”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

The food was decent but we felt that it was a little pricey for what we got. The strawberry milk shake was great. I would suggest ordering your fries extra crispy.

“Decent”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Don't put any money in the jukebox - it will eat it!
Surprisingly quiet for a 50's diner, but food was good.

“Great food, Meh Service”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

The food was great, but the drag on our evening was the service. Our waitress wasn't very friendly and it detracted from the experience. She was a young lady that perhaps was having a bad day or something.

We told her ahead of time we wanted a shake as a dessert, but she still brought us a bill while we were eating and wouldn't leave until I paid it. We had to pay again later when we got the shake.

“good atmosphere but pricey”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Fun to try, but food was so-so and pricey. The small drink cup is like 6 or 10 oz...tiny. My son did like the car box they put his food in, they also charge you to split plates which I think is crazy.

Old style drive in with car hops, speakers and trays on window. Generous food portions. Excellent raspberry shake.
