The portions here are huge, so one leaves stuffed with lots left on the plate unless you have a huge appetite. We probably had an unusual experience as we waited over 45 minutes for our meal...were told there was an 'accident' in the kitchen and a cook had to leave....this was after waiting almost 30 minutes...and our food still came out moderately warm. Plus, side choice was starchy...large crusted chicken pot pie/potatoes with corn or chicken fried steak, mashed pot/gravy, and corn. This seems like the kind of place to come for shakes, dessert, or a meal...cannot imagine eating all three. The nostalgia is there, but with all the great options in Abq, would try other spots.

My family and I travelled on old rte 66 back in 1955 so when my husband and I were in Albuquerque and saw this place we knew we had to stop! Had a GREAT cheeseburger and a chocolate milkshake! How perfect is that! So glad we stopped!

We split a chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes which was very good. Service was good price was good. Shakes were exceptional. There were several police officers there eating and that always means good affordable food to us!

The girls were wanting Milkshakes and this diner had them! They filled the glass almost 3 times. The burger, BLT, and Cheesesteak sandwiches were all very good. The atmosphere was hopping for a Friday night and the wait staff was efficient and friendly. The décor was fun and nostalgic and the PEZ collection is impressive.

Food was very tasty. Portions were good. I had the Fender Bender and it was almost too much. My husband had the Diego's Diamond Back Burger and our friend had the Patty Melt. We all cleaned our plates and left well satisfied. Atmosphere was very nostalgic.
