Fodor's Expert Review 50's Prime Time Café
If you grew up in middle America in the 1950s—or if you're just a fan of classic TV shows like I Love Lucy and The Donna Reed Show—you'll appreciate the vintage atmosphere and all-American classic menu at this diner-style restaurant. Clips of old TV shows will welcome you as you feast on meat loaf, pot roast, or fried chicken, all served on a Formica tabletop. The meat loaf is one of the best inexpensive, filling dinners in any local theme park. Enjoy it with a malted-milk shake or root-beer float (or a bottle of wine or cocktail from the Tune-In Lounge next door). The place offers some fancier dishes, like grilled salmon with maple bourbon butter sauce, which is a good choice for lighter eaters. If you're not feeling totally wholesome, go for Dad's Electric Lemonade (rum, vodka, blue curaçao, sweet-and-sour mix, and Sprite). Just like Mother, the menu admonishes, "Keep your elbows off the table."
