What comes to mind when you think about the 1950s? The unhurriedness of life? Sock hops and soda fountains? Classic Thunderbirds? No matter what defining characteristics of the era you cherish the most, you can find them at 5 & Diner in Phoenix. This 50s-themed diner in Arizona is a blast from the past that serves up down-home American fare in a perfectly retro setting.
5 & Diner also has locations on West Northern Avenue in Phoenix and in Surprise. Visit the 5 & Diner website or Facebook page for more information, such as current hours and a full menu.
Have you ever been to 5 & Diner? Are there any other retro places in Arizona that harken back to simpler times? Tell us your thoughts in the comments! If you’re looking for more Phoenix adventures, this sprawling botanical garden is worth checking out while you’re in the area.
