Corvette Diner & Gamers Garage Restaurant Review

: Since 1987, the Corvette Diner has reigned as kid heaven, with its 1950s theme, over-the-top ambience, singing and dancing waitstaff, and bustling arcade. The diner successfully moved to Point Loma from Hillcrest, taking over an historic site, once the officer’s club at the Naval Training Center, known as Liberty Station. The place seats 240-plus with three distinct sections. This rockin' haven has waitresses with beehives and ponytails who throw Bazooka gum at your table. Meanwhile, the classic American menu includes juicy burgers, crispy fries, cold milk shakes, root beer floats and hearty sandwiches like Mom used to make. We usually stick with the burgers, but the open-face turkey sandwich smothered in gravy can sometimes lure us away. We also like the sweet potato fries and the "hubcap sliders." Silly names abound like the Sting Ray sirloin chili and Sophia Loren spaghetti and meatballs. Save room for the hot fudge brownie sundae and feel free to let the waitstaff give you a new hairdo with colorful pipe cleaners, whether you are five or 40. It's toe-tapping fun.
