Fodor's Review

Gum-snapping waiters in garish costumes trade quips and snide remarks with customers at this tongue-in-cheek re-creation of a 1950s diner, but it's all good, clean fun (except perhaps when they dance on the counter without removing their shoes). The menu is deep and cheap, with six unique chili preparations, five different hamburgers, four types of hot dogs, a large sandwich selection, and "deluxe plates" such as meat loaf, pot roast, and chicken-fried steak. Kids love it here, and for parents there's a selection of cocktails and wines.
