The wise-cracking waitstaff at this Disney-esque diner is as much a part of its gimmick as the retro memorabilia and music. That makes it a particularly fun visit for families…but not necessarily anyone else. The food’s almost an afterthought, but you can’t go wrong with the classic burger, french fries and gravy, and kitschy-cool desserts like the world’s smallest ice-cream sundae (basically a shot glass–sized portion).
