Tourist Trap with terrible service and automatic gratuity - AVOID! – I'm done with them. Everytime I try to give them another chance they remind me why I always swear I'll never be back. (and then some unsuspecting friend invites me) The food is decent, but the service is awful. They constantly try to up-sell you on everything you order: a burger? how about double pattys. Fries? how about chili-cheese, super fries. A coke? how about a chocolate malt. It's annoying.
Also, I can't count the times they've tried to short change me with the check. Once, they "accidentally" forgot a $20 bill, I paid with a $100 on a $15 tab and when I challenged them on the change they claimed that "it got stuck in [their] billfold" and that "it happens sometimes". Yeah right!
A neon-lit trip back to the Eisenhower era comes with burgers, shakes and fries. – In Short
Vintage Coca-Cola ads and posters of Life magazine covers succinctly summon up the 1950s, as do this diner's mini-jukeboxes, red vinyl counter stools and sock-hopping staff. Besides fast food staples like hot dogs, cheeseburgers, tuna melts and onion rings, options like the Streamliner (a grilled veggie patty) acknowledge more modern dietary concerns. Even better for kids, sandwiches come wrapped in paper jackets and nearly everything is served on paper plates. No spills. No breaks. No tears.
Nice place, don't pass it up. – I did not realize the Grove had one of these and am glad as I enjoyed the two I found in Miami Beach as much as I enjoyed this one. The food, not expensive; but, cooked to perfection and served it seemed right off the grill.
