This dinner is perfect for families and couples with a real 50's flair. The food is amazing and the service is so friendly. Have a shake too since they are simply delicious. Great place right in the Metro Centre.

In from out of town and loved the theme. Food was very good. Waitresses awesome. Felt at home. They have a small store that I loved with 50's theme. When I come back in town I will be eating there for sure.
