Turn around and check out our regulars — Guys by the name of Elvis, Frank, and Jackie. And gals like Audrey, Grace & Ella. Yes, it’s always the 1950s in our magical little part of the world. But you don’t have to be an old-timer to enjoy our delicious milkshakes and tasty burgers. Just bring a sense of fun, and some of your favorite people." The Trolly Diner
