This is a blast from the past. Not only is it a step back in time with a great menu but you can also enjoy the two antique areas attached to the diner. Browse or purchase a hidden treasure after your meal. It's a traditional 50's diner from decor to the food served. It's not fancy but it is a... More

If you enjoy frozen vs fresh. Tacky vs a theme that is inviting or at least relaxing. .. then this is the place... The food was not at all even close to worth the money. By far the bottom of my review list.

My daughter and I stopped in while day tripping, the lady that served us was polite and friendly. I would not , however recommend it as the food (burger and fries) was not homemade, fries were not freshcut and the burgers were frozen premade.

Worth going to just for the experience. There's nothing special about the food and the place really resembles your typical flea market but it's the kind of place where you can say "been there, done that".

My son and I ( he's 31 years old ) went in to the antique store sides to see a nice gentleman about his antiques. We were followed around by the miserable old man owner and his miserable old wife as if we were children or thieves. We each had a cup of coffee in our hand and because of... More
