Good theming with decent food. - Will Sullivan

A great way to get food poisoning. - Amy Smith

One of our favorite theme park counter service restaurants. Great theming (American Grafitti) and perfect food for the themed time period. We look forward to the Chili Fries & Root Beer Floats on our annual Orlando Florida vacation. Check out the vintage cars parked outside the Diner. - Rob Pastor

It's like stepping back in time! The Diner feel is fun and the food is pretty good. The onion rings are to die for! And the shakes and burgers are great to. It's a great place to grab lunch! Prices are par for theme park food and there is always plenty to eat! 8/10 - Bob Liebe

I love this diner for a quick cheaper lunch. I usually split my meal with someone else in the party and end up eating with drink for less than 8 bucks a person. Milkshakes and floats are also great for an afternoon snack. - Terri Pierce
