We went for a late lunch today - about 2 PM. Usually all of the outside seating is filled and by the time we got here, it was only half full. But it was hot and we went inside. Very 50's furniture and decor. There was also 50's music. Maybe they know that those of us who were alive during... More

Great step back in time. Hot Dogs were great! Service was really wonderful. Try the rootbeer float or a malt!

This is a fun 50's style diner with all of the great memorabilia on the walls complete with the old fashioned tables and chairs. The food is pretty good and you can get a variety of all of your traditional favorites. It's always been a great time and experience when we've gone in there. The service has always been great.

Highly recommended! I visit here frequently and I have never had a complaint. The food is amazing and the staff always friendly. If anyone had a bad complaint I think it was a rare instance.

Chicken fried steak was not edible beef brisket was more like roast beef it was barely edible as my daughter described it tasted like dog food had to smother everything and brown gravy to even be able to eat it needless to say we left without finishing all of our food

Thank you for your review. We appreciate feed back from everyone since it helps us become better. I have to say though, that I am a little confused since you have mentioned two of our most popular items that we have never had a bad review on before. Our Chicken Fried Steak is Black Angus, and our Brisket is actual... More

Normally I enjoy this restaurant. Not sure if this employee is new or needs a refresher on the Health Department's "Food Handling" Class. While eating our meal, our waitress was behind the counter working. She stopped for a moment to rub her nose (part where her nostrils were) with the palm of her hand. When she was finished she went... More

I am so sorry you had to see that. All of our girls have taken the food handlers class and we are one of the cleanest restaurants in town, always getting the blue ribbon. She should have gone right over to the sink and washed her hands. I will print your review and post it on our employee board as... More

Loved eating here. The vibe of the restaurant was perfect and the food was solid. I've been here several times now with my wife and my brother. Recommend the milkshakes.

Having lived in Grand Junction a number of years the wife and I would frequent the Main Street for breakfast. So when back in town we decided to head over. The service was definitely slow to start. Several table filled up after us and were checked on by the waitress first. I was beginning to think we made a mistake... More
