A New Authentic ’50s Restaurant Opens In Manassas, Virginia
A new restaurant has opened its doors in the Manassas, Virginia Area. It’s an authentic ’50s décor restaurant called the Juke Box Diner and it takes us back to a step in time. My husband and I were impressed as we walked into the business to par-take of their food and to take a trip down memory lane. It is located at 8637 Sudley Road, Manassas, Virginia, right across the street from the Prince William Hospital.
The inside and outside décor is a replica of many of the old diners of the ’50s and ’60s. It gave both of us a feeling of nostalgia of visiting a period in our lives we had loved and enjoyed. It brought back many wonderful memories of some great times we had in diners. There are murals of scenes of the ’50s and ’60s, a juke box, booths and tables and a counter that sits below a replica 1965 Ford Cobra. Drop a few coins in the juke box and listen to some of your favorite songs of Elvis and other greats.
The Diner opens from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. each day, except Friday when it closes at midnight. It serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It has favorites of the past diners by serving old-fashioned pot roast and meatloaf, and of course, favorite milk shakes that were popular in all diners. The menu runs the gamut from breakfast favorites to crisp garden salads, seafood, chicken and beef dinners to mountain-high sandwiches and soups. A complete selection of Italian-style foods are also offered. The food we ordered came out quickly and it was delicious!
If you have a sweet tooth, they have delicious deserts…and they are fantastic!!
It seats 300 guests and employs 60 people. Its owner, Mr. Joe Attyah, owns 3 other Juke Box Diners in the area. Mr. Attyah said, “People far and wide know that Juke Box Diner means delicious food…and lots of it and at reasonable prices.”
The diner also has take-out service available.
