The only bad thing about this place is trying to decide what to order! There were 7 of us, we tried a little bit of everything and it was all bomb! 7 happy smiles and lots of laughter!!

The food is mediocre. Eat somewhere else and come here for dessert if you want ice cream. This place takes you back to a simpler time. The hot fudge lining your glass is highly recommended.

This place was packed - at 8pm. It has really cute 1950's diner themed decor and a menu to match. They are serious about trying to get you in and out of there (which we appreciated). There's a game area for kids. But ultimately this is just hustled, cheap diner food delivered by a very tired waitress.

There is a sandwich trio which is egg salad (not much flavor), tuna salad (good) and something else that was not edible. Husband had a huge ice cream sundae he enjoyed.

Lots of kids - it's a cute place for them. But there's too many other good food places to bother for adults.

We only had time for an ice cream cone, but the it was yummy. The Sugar Bowl is apparently an iconic place in Scottsdale. Wish we had more time to check out the menu and the gift shop.

This was a fun place to grab some lunch. Things have been around for ages. The menu was good and the ice cream was even better.
