Anyone can have a blast-from-the-past dinning experience at Legends Classic Diner in Glendora, CA. The 50’s-style diner, located on the historic Route 66, boasts a casual 50’s soda shop inspired environment complete with jukebox and soda fountain! The food is affordable and yummy and a fusion of Traditional American fare (such as burgers and pastramis) and Mexican cuisine (such as burritos and quesadillas). The highlight has to be the soda fountain, where guests can order everything from shakes and malts to root beer floats and a multitude of different freezes. The turkey burgers and cheese fries are highly recommended as is the free salsa bar. And, for the 50’s aficionado in all of us, the decor is awesome. There are also many photo opportunities available, so bring your camera and get your friends ready to pose inside as well as out. The only draw back to this quaint throwback is that no one who works there seems to know how to make a friend egg (over easy or medium style) and they all looked perplexed when asked if they served anything other than scrambled eggs. When the cashier, cook, and kitchen manager all tell you that they have never heard of or know what an over-easy egg is, it makes you second guess your experience. This reviewer recommends that they purchase a copy of Frying Eggs for Dummies or at least go to Denny’s and see what all the fuss is about. Other than the fried egg incident, this Classic Diner is definitely a “must-visit”.
