Midwest Living Review

Step back in time when you order a shake or Frito chili pie at this classic 1946 diner.

Built in 1946 and expanded in recent years, this is a classic diner that serves ultrachocolaty milkshakes, homemade fries, onion rings, cheap burgers and "dogs." Frito chili pie is a huge and filling bowl of savory chili meat ladled atop a large pile of Frito corn chips. Entrees such as chicken-fried steak or the tenderloin dinner come with salad, choice of potato and hot roll or bread for less than $8. Signature broasted chicken dinners offer all-white, all-dark, or a mix -- from $4.99. Just save room for an ice cream sundae or a piece of pie such as cherry or coconut. Take a step back in time as you wait for your order. Vintage black-and-white photos hang on the walls, and the red, black and white color scheme gives the place a retro vibe.
