Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stopped here for ice cream sundae. Menu looks good. Very clean and the staff (Brazilian guy) was very friendly. Intended going back but due to mobility problems and lack of dropped curbs etc. more accessible places took priority unfortunately. Loved the music and the real American diner feel. As I said, the menu looks good.

Firstly this restaurant is NOT on the strip so I think it must have moved from previous larger premises? Food is ok but at around £50 for two potato skins then chilli and chips it felt expensive for what it is. One good point. Milk shakes are v good

This is a great place to eat, well worth a little walk towards the very top of the strip towards Vila Petra Hotel as this served up the best burger and fries in town. The strawberry milkshake is to die for and the ice cream is the closest to home I've had. The atmosphere and American memorabilia along with the... More

lovely food, but make sure to waiter/ waitress that you dont want your food cooked in garlic oil. A lot of dishes cooked in garlic without saying so on menu. Not good if you hate garlic like me.

This is a great place as I came here one night with my family. The overall service from the staff was very good and the meals were perfect. The portions are quite big but I would recommend any of the Burgers and the deserts were also great. I visited three times during my stay in Portugal and some times in... More

Mozzarella sticks and kids nuggets were a grease fest. Not a great start. Recieved my chilli dog. Hot dog was warm but chilli on top stone cold and tasted uncooked, unfresh,probably... More

We were staying at the Natura Algarve Club and were lucky enough to have breakfast there twice this week. The day we arrived we had pancakes and coffee and it was lovely. A few days after we had the classic american and fenway park. Very very tastey stuff including pancakes, strips of bacon, hash browns and a few more bits.... More

We stopped here for a milkshake on the way back to our hotel and loved it so much, returned twice more and had dinner. From the Elvis and Marilyn Monroe statues, dining booths, music, cadallic car and waitress dressed in cute 1950's waitress outfits, to the varied American Diner menu, this place is a little gem. The service from the... More
