Their Chicken Wings and chips are amazing. Some chose the chicken strip which are much more amazing than the wings.

Friendly staff, great collection of 60s memorabilia, actual cuisine not great... A curious oddity, worth a look if in the area, but nothing special. Watch for reduced opening hours in the winter.

What a unique place in such an unexpected situation. A real piece of 1950’s, great food and music. Real fun!!

Good variety to choose from plus you get extra toppings on some of the milkshakes. Place is popular so it does get busy most of the time.

We loved both meals we enjoyed at the diner. Service was efficient and friendly despite it being very busy with a tournament. Portions are very generous.

A fun fifties diner with great food at good value. There is a wealth of memorabilia focused on Elvis, Marilyn Monroe and Other fifties icons. There’s a microbrewery on the premises and some motorbikes and cars inside the building.

Great restaurant with beautiful decor, back in the 60's, Elvis and Marilyn Monroe setup and music of the 60's, American burgers and fries, milkshakes, the jukebox and pink Cadillac was my favorite, a must visit, you'll have lots of fun.

I think it closes at 8. It's not a place that is often open very late. Especially Sundays.
