This is a must stop place, especially for lunch. Adults and kids will enjoy the food, treats, and drinks. We had cheeseburgers, patty melts, and hotdogs with onion rings. Food was great, but the best part was the milkshakes!!! Two adults could easily split a...More

Our family of 7 was promptly seated during dinner hours. Resturant is decorated with a variety of cheerful purple cows and they had a great menu of mostly burgers and sandwiches. Service was prompt and friendly and food was great! Will go back for sure!More

I know that it is just food coloring but the purple colored vanilla ice cream at the Purple Cow is fantastic. The patty-melt was great also, but the main attraction of this "back to the fifty's diner" is the desserts in my opinion. My wife,...More
