Fun, 1950's themed restaurant that has been in San Diego for decades. The place is huge, and is a great place to go if you're meeting up with a group of adults and kids. Love the themed rooms here too- there's even a black light room!

The food is diner fare, and you can't go wrong with one of the many burger options. There are also a wide variety of milkshakes and sodas.

This is the ultimate '50's diner lovingly recreated with burgers, fries, shakes, servers in bobby socks and interactive singing for entertainment. WARNING: it is loud and somewhat bright. It is geared for families with younger children, but can be enjoyed by "kids" of all ages. There is a fully restored '61 Corvette in the lobby

This place is awesome just for its fun-filled atmosphere. A retro 50's style diner that specializes in birthday parties (so be warned), it's a good old-fashioned burger joint with some unique twists that keep everyone smiling. But between the loud noise levels, and the fact that they don't take reservations, know that you might be taking a gamble showing up here for dinner. If you want a quiet place or fine dining, go elsewhere. This is more for the party environment than the burgers and shakes.

So many choices of burgers and shakes. My favorite is the Rory Burger. The 50s decor, old Movies, the game room, DJ, and real Corvette make this a great place for a kids party or a meal.

I really like going to this place, I've always had a pleasant experience and leave here feeling satisfied. I do think it's more about the atmosphere and experience than the food though, I've never been blown away by any item on the menu that I have tried. It IS a great family place though and they have a great selection of old fashioned drinks that we always like to try when we go. Overall, it's worth the visit and even worth the price if you have kids or are part of the "diner generation." :)

Fun 50's diner, good for college dorm events or family outings or anything in between. Crazy decor, glow in the dark tables, and fantastic milkshakes...but I would say its claim to fame is that servers will give you a crazy hairdo fashioned with soda straws! It can be a little loud and crowded, but it's definitely a fun experience for all :)

Super fun - a bit crowded at times, but very fun for the kiddos! There is a room with a black light that is fun to eat in too!
