The portions are huge and the food is good enough that the regular customers almost need to be rolled out the door. It's an unassuming-looking place with lots of Mexican knick-knacks and neon signs. The big booths are perfect for big eating. Some house specialties include Calabacita Carne Asada (grilled steak with a succotash of squash and corn on the side) and the Veggie Burro (flour tortilla filled with grilled carrots and potatoes). Or you might try the Via Chalupas (thick, fried tortilla topped with chicken, cheese, salsa and lettuce). The sopapillas, a Mexican-style donut that you drizzle with honey, shouldn't be missed.
Elvis didn't eat here, but he would have if he knew about it. This 50's diner is the ultimate American icon with its jukebox, vinyl-upholstered booths, sassy staff and classic American cuisine.

Besides the burgers and shakes, you can order comforting entrees like open-faced turkey sandwiches, liver and onions, and meatloaf. Breakfasts also feature all-American staples like omelets, pancakes and even oatmeal. And, if you're a fan of cherry Cokes, this is one of the few places you'll still find them made-to-order, not out of a can.
