if you are looking for the 50's theme in dining this your place. What a great place, was there a year ago and if anything it has even got better. They will even make small helpings or huge. Meals are delicious, you won't go wrong.

Stopped there for an early dinner. Seems to be a popular place, lots of people there, but no wait. Good food, pleasant wait staff. Enjoyable experience.

Located on the highway on the east side of Minot. Interesting atmosphere. Staff very customer satisfaction oriented. Made us a traditional style banana split even though it was not on the menu. It was good and the price very rerasonable.

A Fifties style diner with great food. Our waitress was very good. It seems like a popular breakfast for locals as the staff were familiar with most of the customers.

Stopped for lunch and found easy parking, friendly staff, bright and clean restaurant and very good food. I tried a German dish and my wife had a Club sandwich. Very good food served by very nice people. Recommend.

The outside resembles a 50s diner. Room was packed with families and the music which was out of tune made for a very noisy visit. Lots of items on the menu that the locals seemed to love.

We had breakfast and the portions were so big that we took home leftovers and ate them the next day for breakfast. My son and I had the German omelet and it was wonderful: three eggs stuffed with sauerkraut, sausage, and pepper jack cheese. My husband had the chicken fried steak and eggs. Yum!

We loved the 50s diner and food was great. We stopped In on our way to Glacier taking Route 2 across the country and this was right on our route. The waitress was extremely nice and helpful and prices were good. I got the country fried steak special and could not eat it all the portion was so huge.

First time in Minot - Loved the unique decor of the old school diner style inside. Breakfast was great, good price and quick hot off the grill!

Great place for a stopover, good and hearty food at a good price too. Had more German themed food than I could eat...kids loved it too! Lovely service as well. Authentic interior which made us smile.
