We had pulled into the business a few doors down to mount snow tires ....an infrequent occurrence in the lower mainland, and stopped in for a time wasting snack. Mind you it was SNOW everywhere, all was good, a bit pricey for what we ordered. Great fresh meat and ingredients but the bun was stale and verging on crumbling apart.... More

Good burger, very tasty and a decent size. Lovely milkshakes too. Appearance of drive in isnt up to much but the food on a whole was pretty nice. Worth a visit if you are partial to a burger

Had lunch here on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Sat outside on the patio. Was busy inside, waited about 10 minutes for our food no big deal. Food was good, the French Fries and Onion Rings awesome. The milkshake was really delicious, thick and creamy and very filling. The burger was just so so. Loved the option of having a whole... More

This place has been around since the early 60's, I grew up eating here when it was the Tomahawk drive - in. The current owner went on a spiel of how great the burgers were and how everything was made by hand, from scratch. When I ordered, I was informed that the only buns available were whole wheat (I don't... More

We drive by this place each time we go to Amorosa. Decide to try it for lunch. The burgers are fairly good. It's still worth a try if you happen to be nearby.

Went here on a sunny afternoon to get a shake. Long lineup, so I decided to get takeout for my husband and me. The order took about 15-20 min to be prepared. Everything is made fresh. The shakes were really good; the classic burger was really good too. I had the chicken burger, which was a little too dry. Cool... More

Lost In The 50s is a great concept but I just can't get past the cleanliness (or lack thereof) in the indoor eating area. I assume the back where food is prepared must be clean due to inspections, right? The food is good, but portions don't match up with price in my view. This is a place with so much... More

After reading the reviews both online and in the restaurant itself, I had very high hopes. I was in the neighbourhood for an auto repair, and going into Lost in the 50s was really like going into a time warp. Staff friendly, but the space is a little odd/dirty. Burger and Fries are good but not great. If you're in... More
