Entering this diner takes you back to the rockabilly days instantly. Elvis and Cadillac pictures take up a great deal of the wall space along with vinyl records and shiny lights of Coca Cola merchandise. The small 2 person tables and the all-red 4-5 person booths, with the old style ketchup and mustard bottles on the table, look very original.
I wasn’t around back in these days, but what I’ve seen from movies and so on… it looks alright to me.
But it is still a restaurant and so the food means quite a bit in this matter and I was skeptic the first time I ordered a cheeseburger. My expectations wasn’t sky high, but they did actually pull it off.
The buns and sandwiches are made with all white bread, the filling (lettuce, pickles etc.) are next to the top bun and if it wasn’t for the absolutely tasty looking beef with melted cheese on top of it, I would’ve walked away. As I started to build my own burger, my mouth was watering and the first bite took away all my worries. The fries were great and the side chili dressing also.
It’s not a gourmet burger as the big city trends wants it, but it really fits the concept of a 50s diner.
By the way – the milkshakes are awesome. Fresh whipped cream with a cherry on top. Yes sir!
Both restaurant and owner are well perfected to the original style – the only things missing are the waitresses on roller skates.
