This West Coast chain is a nice place to bring little kids. They get to have their meals served in paper convertible cars. Their malts and shakes (one of a few places to make coffee shakes, and now they have espresso malts/shakes) are really good, topped with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry. The Caesar salad was soggy and practically 1/3 of the bowl was full of croutons, not lettuce. The dressing was too tangy for a Caesar. The vegetable soup of the day was good, spicy from the peppers. The jalapeno pepper grilled chicken was good. If you like cheeseburgers, they're pretty good here. The fries are ok. Tried the fried onion blossom in the past and it was horrible. Full of nauseating oil, practically inedible. The booths are fun and you can play old time music for 25 cents a play. This restaurant has been here for a long time now and the booths are wearing thin with tiny rips in the seats. Still a fun place to bring children.
Pros: Large place for kids' birthday parties, booths & music, parking, good malts and shakes
Cons: average food
