The Retro is very nice. It is open 7 days a week from 5;30am to 8pm. Good food, great atmosphere,good service. Prices are good too. Everyone that works there is very friendly.Love the 50's 60's music. They are also doing breakfast buffet on Sunday mornings. Give it a try I am sure you will like it. I do and I will be going back.

I went their recently and thought the food was horrible. I got a burger...and it was in four pieces! I couldnt even eat it! How hard is it to cook a burger. Never asked me how I wanted it cooked. Also I could taste the bleach in their cups. The coffee was horrible as well. You cant even see through the windows their so filthy. And the display case with their food in it is disgusting! Finger prints and grease all over it. Its not that hard to wipe stuff down. Im not saying its a bad place...but they really need to step it up a bit if they want people to eat there.

been there. it was as good as any diner. i think it is the location that kills the business. parking is not that good. but it is just about as good of parking as jumbos. i hope they make it. give it a try. park out back it isnt that far. go there instead of mcdonalds. mcdonalds can make it without you going there all the time. these people are hard working locals. they need your business. they want you there. give it a try. help them make it.
been there 3 times

Wouldn't it be nice if people just said nice things about others instead of slamming them just to make a comment, try it, ya know the old saying...if you don't have anything good to say, then say nothing.... keep your personnal opions to yourself.

the place is ok nothing wrong with it. there will never be another Jumbos. Jumbos must be the oldest business in Gouv. it is a landmark. Mrs. Phelps worked hard the new owner works hard. it is a tough act to follow. why not try the new place? after all you dont wear your favorite shoes everyday.

some people are just negative about everything. they are just looking for something to complain about. I have a friend that I dont think he ever had a good meal while eating out. always something wrong. I would be with him and think everything was good. some people right away want a new business to fail. and they are happy when it does. why I dont know. you cant believe everything you read on here. try it for yourself. ive been there it is good. my meal cost six dollars. im not disapointed that it wasnt like a forty dollar meal. it is a diner.

I go there just about everyday and will as long as they stay open. I love the food and the all the WORKERS. Retro is doing an awesome job with the business so far and more than likely will add more as the business gets going. It takes time to gain in any business. Most of you negative people are ones that could never own a business for a day but like to bash what is here for businesses.
