Second time’s a charm

Review > The Fabulous ’50s Diner might just live up to its name, after making changes

By The Staff

 

First impressions are usually lasting ones, but sometimes you just have to give a restaurant a second chance. Maybe there was something going on that day, or maybe they were in the midst of a transition in ownership. For some reason they didn’t hit the mark the first time, but that may not necessarily be the case the second time around.

It took a few months to work up the courage to go back to the Fabulous 50’s Diner at the American Legion on Trinity Drive. During the first and last visit, the food was found to be mostly frozen, the portions a bit on the small side for the price and let’s just say the ambiance left much to be desired.

The second trip to the diner was made in search of breakfast. There are only a couple of restaurants in Los Alamos open in the morning on the weekend and the Fabulous 50s Diner is one of them. 

Upon entering the eatery, it was evident that some changes had already been made. Retro plastic tablecloths adorned the tables and the cheesy ’50s posters that had been on the walls have been replaced with other posters — these depict movie stars from the ’50s, such as James Dean, Elvis Presley, John Wayne and Marilyn Monroe — giving the establishment a better look and feel.
