Work lunch and our normal go-to in Minden was closed so drove here for lunch. Good 50's vibe, good service (thanks Lisa) and two great burgers. Six ounce home made beef burgers with fries and two drinks all for under $30! We will be back!!

We stop in every weekend for breakfast and it is great, but go early cause it gets full and there are not enough waitresses.

Decor at this 1950s-styled retro diner is 100% spot-on. From the formica-topped tables to the big, black & white prints of Elvis and Marilyn on the washroom doors, this place on Hwy 35 takes you back to the Eisenhower-era of Bobbiesox and flat-top haircuts. The...More
