Have You Been To The Corvette Diner?

Located at Liberty Station in Point Loma.  The original restaurant which is now closed, was situated in Hillcrest.  We use to take our daughters there all the time.  If I can find an old photo of our times at the Hillcrest location, I will post them.  It’s a great place to take the wee ones.

Great Service, Great Food

Corvette imported servers from other of the Cohn Restaurant Group properties to handle the volume of business they anticipated. As of 4:00 pm, they had given away 952 of their mouth-watering house specialties. I ordered something called Kookie’s Burger, which included sautéed onion, mushrooms and Swiss cheese. It was delectable. My friend enjoyed a Sid’s Western Burger, which included crispy bacon, onion rings, cheddar and their Kentucky stud barbeque sauce. They also have a gluten-free menu. Their selection of fountain drinks and shakes are superb.

Fifties and Sixties Flash from the Past

While the customers enjoyed their amazing fifties fare, a DJ played cheery hits from the fifties and sixties. The servers, many of who are singers and performers, entertained the clientele in their costumes and wigs. Janet, one of their singers gave a smoking rendition of At Last, the hit made famous by Etta James. American Idol watch out.

Despite the wait, it was a very enjoyable experience. I had never been to this location before, but I fully intend on returning. Even if you missed the burger giveaway, treat yourself to a meal at The Corvette Diner, 2965 Historic Decatur Road, Liberty Station. You will be glad you did!
