“Fantastic venue for a celebration!”

We have been here many times and have never been disappointed. The menu is awesome, the portions are huge, food is fresh and high quality, service is always great and the atmosphere is always fun and lively. Great for families as well. The owner is probably the nicest man in the restaurant business: he is always welcoming and goes that extra mile for customers especially those with a birthday. Please try this place as they really deserve the business and you will have a brilliant time and a full belly!

“Fantastic gem hidden in Croydon”

As soon as you step in the restaurant, you’re zoomed into the 50′s. The staff were so welcoming, the tables and chairs were spotless. Then the food came! Portion sizes were huge but the burgers amazing. Fresh buns, perfectly cooked beef and homemade coleslaw scrumptious. The milkshake is a must have… I was offered Butterscotch which wasnt on the menu and so glad I had it. The only downside for us… our stomach sizes! Wish we could had finished our plates clean but just couldnt fit it in. Brilliant place!

“Very good food and very friendly service”

Me and my wife went here for a fairly late dinner. The place was almost empty, with only three tables occupied. We were greeted at the door by the manager/owner and shown to a table, the place was very clean and the staff extremely friendly. We were given the menus and a couple of recommendations/specials. Decor was excellent, and the music was good, but not intrusive.

I ordered steak and ribs, my wife just steak. The food came quickly, the portions were a great size and both our steaks were cooked exactly as we asked for. I ate all the steak quickly and most of the fries and then moved on to my BBQ ribs. The only word for these is amazing! The meat was so well cooked that when I picked up a bone it just dropped off. I’ve never had such good ribs in my life!

The price was fine, perfectly what I’d expect to pay for a steak dinner, and we were made to feel extremely welcome. I will definitely be coming back.

“Always a good dinner”

The food is great, the portions are generous, the prices are very low.
It ‘s very easy to find parking and the bus stop is in front of the restaurant.
The atmosphere is friendly, the manager and the waiters are very nice and helpful.

One of the best meals I’ve ever eaten. Excellent value for money and faultless customer service. Can’t recommend this place highly enough. Just beware the All American Tower Burger. It’s vaaaast. If you’ve ever seen ‘Man V Food’, you’ll know the sort of proportions I’m talking about. I beat it though : )

“Unique, well cooked, good portions”

This place keeps my family and I returning regularly. The burgers are seasoned and cooked well, the chips are always right, the coleslaw is a nice addition. Maybe adding the option of a few sauces on the side would be nice but this doesnt detract from what is pretty much a guaranteed-to-satisfy, filling, tasty meal. We have been assured that only the meat is compliant with muslim needs!

I want one now!

“OMG is fabulous”

Went tonight and was so impressed. Food superb and the staff were great and really attentive. My little boy had wanted to go to an American diner for years and this place certainly lived up to his expectations. Shame we live so far away (Liverpool). The Jucy Lucy burgers are to die for.

I love this place! Since discovering it about two months ago we have been there several times, including for two birthdays! The food is very good and great value for money! Some of the potions are huge, so be careful what you order! Milk shakes are divine! The atmosphere is excellent a really family place. We took oaps and a baby and everyone enjoyed it. The owner or manager who greets you is so friendly, you can’t help but enjoy your evening!

“Great restaurant!”

Had a large group come to celebrate a birthday and the place was brilliant, the service from the staff and manager was second to none and very inviting!

I was also impressed that although the restaurant was very busy there was not a huge wait for our food, which was delicious!

Another great point is there was a fantastic magician keeping everyone entertained and I would recommend Cadillac to friends purely to see the magician! Definitely the best restaurant in Croydon!

“A fantastic evening with great food and amazing service”

Went to the Cadillac Diner tonight for my husbands birthday. The food was amazing and great value, the staff was friendly and so accommodating. They made my husband feel extra special on his birthday and went the extra mile to make sure our evening was great. Very child friendly and we will be making this a family favourite.

“Great for kids and adults”

We came here for my daughters 4th birthday, childrens meals are nice and varied, milkshakes are fantastic, adult meals were great. I had the ribs which were the best I have ever had! Everyone had something different, vege burger, juicy Lucy etc no one had a bad word to say and it very well decorated inside a booth seated 6 of us comfortably. Will be going back again very soon.

“Spoilt rotten”

Just got home from Cadillac diner. Food was delicious and shakes were amazing.

We had the same waitress that was on as ‘rayhannah’ below expressed his xenophobic views on. She had no problem understanding us and was very pleasant. We were celebrating our youngest child’s 10th birthday and the restaurant made a fuss of him getting everyone to sing happy birthday while they brought out a complementary slice of chocolate cake with candles on.

Do yourself a favour and visit this restaurant, especially if you set your bar higher than ‘rayhannah’ who is obviously a regular at burger king!!

“Perfect for a party!”

We (20 of us) celebrated my daughters 4th birthday at the Cadillac Diner in Shirley and I can honestly say that I cannot find one thing to fault them on. On making the reservation the manager was accommodating and flexible. Upon arrival the treatment was exactly the same. We came armed with a mass of stuff (cake, table decorations, massive firework candles, the lot) and everything was taken care of in a ‘nothing is too much trouble’ manner. We asked that the bill was dealt with in a particular way (all children’s food on one bill etc) and this was dealt with with absolutely no fuss. The food was ordered and arrived in good time and was delicious. Kids portions were perfect and I have it on good authority that the shakes were scrummy. When it came to cake time, again, it was all taken care of. Everyone sang and it was made really special.

Absolutely fantastic place – we shall be visiting again!

Had a burger meal few days ago it was perfect in every way, I had the Bacon Double Cheese Burger with Chips. I couldnt fault it at all the burger was nice and tender with two slices of bacon. My friend had the Full rack of ribs. His meat just fell of the bones. We both had milkshakes, The price was good too. The Diner is clean and welcoming. Would Def go again.

“Easily the best restaurant in Croydon”

I’m writing this review after my second visit. I can honestky say that this is the best restaurant I’ve been to. The burgers (you have to have a Juicy Lucy) are second to none. Even the baps could be eaten alone! The staff are lovely and the management always find time to make you feel welcome. The place is clean and funky, you could ear your burger off of the toilets floor in there. I honestly cant fault the place. Perfect for birthdays or any occasions. The only negative is that you might not have room for the delicious chocolate cake if you finish your Juicy Lucy!

“WOW…..Atmosphere and portions!!!”

Visited resturant as it was local and just opened and heard some really good reviews….

And I wasn’t disappointed. Now I like my food and I can put it away, but even I struggled with the portion sizes but not only that the prices aren’t silly either.

We started off with Tempura King Prawns and potato skins – which were both really good and very tasty – but there are loads of starters to choose from.

Then amongst us we had burgers (again huge selection), club sandwich – which is to die for, and butterfly chicken – which again was amazing.

Fantastic family atmosphere and they treated my 8 year old daughter like a princess….

Will definitely become one of our regular haunts…..

Only a suggestion and please it is definitely not a criticism – for a more family feel how about Pizza’s, one big Pizza amongst a family, can sometimes be good value rather than 3,4 or even 5 separate meals. As said just a suggestion and in no way a negative.

“Fantastic Restaurant….”

My husband I are regular users of this restaurant, by going in at least once a week. The atmosphere is very good with music from the 50′s up to present day. The staff are all very friendly. Mark the Manager takes time to chat with lots of his customers and is always checking that all is ok. Food is tasty and the portions are huge. Very reasonably priced. Great service…

We took our whole family there without booking and they were very happy to squeeze us all in. It was our 5 year old Grandsons birthday and at short notice they rustled up cake, candles and had the whole restaurant singing to him. They really couldn’t do any more for us.

We cannot recommend this restaurant enough…Was in there last night, and we are back next week with friends coming from Manchester.

“great value”

Always go past here but never have time to stop. Went In here with my daughter for the first time and was very happy.

I had huge plate of cheeseburger, chips and cowselaw. Burger was thick and juicy and homemade and cowselaw was also homemade. Excellent value for money.
My daughter got a portion of chips, well more like 3 portions. The plate was huge and chips pilled high. Excellent value for money and staff was very polite. Toilets immaculate.

Highly recommend and will be returning. I never usually write reviews but this deserved it and as I live down the road it’s great to support local businesses

“Lovely American Diner”

Spotted by my wife whilst searching online for somewhere to go and eat yesterday evening and we came across ‘Cadillac Diner’, and our cravings for a beautiful burger and chips increased tenfold. We were most DEFINITELY not let down!

The diner is in a beautiful location, and well lit. Very inviting. We got in and made an order for drinks, (I’d recommend their milkshakes…. VERY good) and ordered our food. Half rack of ribs with chicken wings were cooked to perfection and absolutely amazing, glazed in a gorgeous BBQ sauce and a very good portion of chips on the side. My wife, she ordered a chicken fillet burger that I tried. Succelent and tender… an impressive two meals for our first visit.

The only slight downside (which has not effective our visit to the diner) is the lack of knowledge from one of the waitresses. Questioning her on items that are on the menu (ie. How many ribs in the half rack?) and more information about the diner, she was honest enough to say she did not know at all. There was a slight language barrier which I feel probably made it difficult for her, but it would be lovely to see a waitress/ter who knows their menu inside out, and passionate about selling products. The owner, a lovely gentleman, came over and explained his menu further which was a great help.

That aside, great restaurant, delicious food and good service, and the value for money is worth paying this diner a visit!!

“Incredibly friendly nice atmosphere American theme”

This restaurant is one of my family’s favourite, great for all ages and occasions but especially for celebrations as they make a real fuss of you. The owner and other staff are so friendly and go out of their way to make you comfortable and happy. Food portions are enormous, there’s a great variety of dishes from BBQ ribs to enormous burgers of different variations. The desserts are really scrumptious, their milkshakes are excellent especially the strawberry cheesecake one and the cocktails are tasty, I had a very good mojito. Prices are reasonable, and they also have a good children’s menu. Definitely recommend it.

“Great little diner”

Went there last night to celebrate my 40th birthday. The manager was so nice the food was good super large portions. The milkshakes are tasty and thick. They were kind enough to sing happy birthday to me. I just wish we could get steak as tasty here in the UK as in the USA. Great for families and celebrations. Diner was clean and so well decorated. The waitresses were helpful and friendly.

“Best American diner I’ve been to…”

This was a totally brilliant find. The menu is varied and very authentically American; massive servings and very tasty home made burgers. The prices are very reasonable and the service was quick and really friendly. The decor makes you feel like you’re in a James Dean movie!, chrome and red leather seats with a hint of the musical about it. ROCK AND ROLL!!! – I guarantee you’ll love this place.

“Great American Diner in the UK”

Being from the US, I was sceptical, but they proved me wrong. This is a lovely diner with decor befitting the style. Great music playing on the juke box and the burgers were great.

“excellent service”

A taste of America in Croydon! The owner goes the extra mile in making sure his customers are happy. My salmon dish wasn’t great and the owner was apologetic and didn’t charge for it. My daughter had a beanburger and loved it. The milkshakes were fab too. I think if you order the typical American dishes (burgers, fries) you won’t go wrong and the decor is incredible. A really fun place to eat with great music playing in the background!

“Great food, great service and great atmosphere”

I had a fantastic time at the Cadillac Diner. It’s one of the best 1950s-themed rock ‘n’ roll diners in the area and I would happily eat there again. The food was excellent and very good value for money and the staff were very friendly. Also, the lavatories were unusually pleasant.

I would recommend this to any ’50s addicts like me or just anyone who fancies a great burger.

“Cadillac dinner is the place to be!”

I have eaten at the Cadillac dinner a number of times and have thoroughly enjoyed it!!! Whether its new year, birthdays or just a Saturday night this is the place to be. The food is fantastic I would definitely recommend the potato skins with bacon and cheese-it’s made to perfection! The menu is put together well as there is always something for everyone if your on a diet it out for a feast you’ll definitely be satisfied with the excellent number of dishes here-which are too fairly priced.The staff are great and always willing to assist. I will without a doubt be going to eat at the diner again-it’s amazing!

“F A B U L O U S !”

Second visit to this restaurant and just as good as the first so decided to let everyone know what a fab place it is. If you want the American cuisine you will definately be in for a treat, from portion sizes to decor, American through and through, except for the girls on skates !!!. After visiting other so called American Diners this is by far the BEST. The staff are always friendly and on hand to make sure that you are looked after and happy with your meal despite them being extremely busy at peak times. Whether you want a special evening ie. Birthday Party or just a casual evening visit, you must eat here and you won’t want to go anywhere else. The first time I visited there was a group of 10 of us and the staff made us so welcome. All the orders were brought together and our eyes popped out at the size, WOW, we had a smashing evening and so decided to visit again. This time there was only 4 of us and YES it was just as good as the first. I would throughly recommend this restaurant.

“Don’t go anywhere else!”

This is by far the best American food diner restaurant in Croydon! The service is AMAZING and SUPER QUICK! The prices are so reasonable and the portion size you can’t complain!

“Small town Shirley offers big bite.”

I visited the restaurant in both March and May 2013.

During this, I have tried the chilli cheese hotdog and the lasagne. I thought that the portion sizes were very ample and the prices incredibly reasonable. The quality may not be Michelin worthy but its worth a reminder that this is owned by the greasy spoon next door. My brother and my friend both mentioned on sep occasions that the main course sides are poor in comparison to the main. But I really like how you get a small salad with any starter, and that the milkshakes/deserts are so reasonable.

The Cadillac Diner offers a bite of American food-lore within the sleepy settings of Shirley. The beautiful irony of the restaurant decor is that of a 50s time capsule that is situated in a town that has barely changed from the same era. The restaurant itself is immaculately decorated with booths and chequers. The staff could not be more helpful and the young female host is the jewel in the crown. When you think that the restaurant could have gained some inspiration from nearby Dizzys or TGIs, The Cadilac diner still manages to come off as a better value for money and a genuine family run business.

“Fantastic find”

We are only sorry to have not found this place before.
Warm welcome on a bank holiday, every staff member was kind and helpful. You can tell it is a family run business for sure.
We were given helpful tips such as too share starters but with eyes bigger than our bellies we each placed an order. Starters arrived and were big enough for dinner courses! We all had burger meals with various toppings and these were homemade and fantastic. We left lots as we simply could not finish the huge portions but all were delicious.
We will definitely return!

“Excellent Ribs and really good service”

Been to the Cadillac Diner with few friends, I never write reviews but we had a such a good time at Cadillac’s that I had to write this review. I had full rack ribs which was the baby ribs, it was covered with really nice bbq sauce and the meat just fell of the bone. The chips was hot and crispy and dont forget the BUTTER SCOTCH milkshakes it was out of this world. The service was good and the whole Diner seemed to be very pleasent.

The decore is really nicely done and very clean. You must check to toilets out its so clean. I have never seen toilets in any restaurant before like it!

You wont be disappointed in Cadillac Diner you must give it a go.

“Good food, excellent atmosphere and overall a good place to be on a Sunday evening!”

I’ve been wanting to go to this diner for quite a while now with my friends. We went on a Sunday evening and we sat at a booth! It was comfortable and the decor was great. We had the tempura king prawns as starters with tartar sauce, which was lovely. We also had the potato skins with cheese and bacon, I am a big fan of bacon! We then had ribs which were covered in jack daniels sauce which was very tasty. We then had deserts. I had a knickerbocker glory which was amazing.

Overall we enjoyed ourselves and we will go again. I really recommend Cadillac diner to those who are looking for a good night out!

“Great service, great food.”

Read good reviews so decided to try it out (for take out) when passing. While we waited the owner took the time to talk to us, made recommendations and kindly gave a complimentary milkshake. This place is all the great things you don’t get with massive chains. The food was delicious and the closest thing outside of central London I’ve had to ‘American diner food’. The portions are big but all quality, not just quantity. I’m looking forward to eating in next time.

We spend a lot of time in the diner, every meal is of good quality and massive portion sizes. Compared to other restaurants of this type the Cadillac Diner is the best, great value for money and family friendly!

Went to the Diner 23/03/13 for a family birthday meal read the reviews and the place lived up to the Excellent score it has.
our party of 9 plus 3 children had a full hearty meal big Bburgers, Ribs, chicken, Steaks and all the extras onion rings etc. My meal was a massive double cheese and bacon burger with all the chips you can eat with a very tasty side portion of Jack Daniels BBQ sauce. If your hungry and you like good food and really GREAT service this is the place for you. Very reasonable prices on all food and drink, great milkshakes in loads of flavours. Rack of Ribs marinated overnight in beer (owner rightly admits) and smothered in finger licking good BBQ sauce. Has some very tasty (some home made) afters I tried the very tasty cheesecake. We spent quite a while in the Diner there was a very FRIENDLY, FUN atmosphere. Any slight issue with the food Eg slight delay was swiftly dealt with free coffee and some free wine for the birthday girl. Thank you very much will deff be returning for another great burger of a full rack of Ribs. 5*

“Friendly, fun, family environment. Great value, service and nice big portions! :)”

I have read the previous reviews of this restaurant and cannot believe some of the comments! Me and my family and friends REGULARLY go to this diner and we love it! (and by ‘we’ i mean pensioners, adults, teenagers, children AND a baby). The atmosphere with the music, staff and other diners has always been amazing! We have had birthdays there aswell and enjoyed the manager and staff (and other customers) singing happy birthday (whilst it was played on the jukebox) which made it special compared to other restaurants.
The food has always been delicious, no complaints. Although of course, like everyone else, we have our favourites and admittedly have not tried absolutely everything on the menu but we do all order different dishes and I haven’t heard my family ever complain of theirs.. As for the HUGE American sized portions of food.. That’s great! I don’t know why others would complain of this! It’s not like your paying for a plate of that size! It’s great value for money in there with a lot of choice of food and drinks.
Decor fits right in with the theme and you can tell that they have put a lot of effort into it.
Definetly recommending it to everyone! Of all ages!

Its beautifully decorated, I really felt as I was in an American diner. The chair was very comfortable, there was a Juke box and other decoration that looked straight out of the 1950s.
The waitress greeted us in a friendly manner and offered us drinks and the Menu.

I ate the steak burger and it was absolutely delicious. There was a great variety of American food. Desserts included Banoffe pie, Knickerbocker glory, apple pie.

Its a great place for families, singles, birthday celebrations for all ages.

“Great alternative to an American chain!”

I went with my friend, as she had mentioned going twice before and it being really good. I work in one of the Croydon American restaurant chains myself, and so was very interested in going! We went on a Friday night, having reserved a table expecting it to be very busy… We arrived to two other two-tops and us! The decor was bright and clean. I think it may have been a little OTT personally, but the theme carried through, and to me the only thing that mattered was it was clean!

We were given a booth even though there was just two of us, and we even got to choose our table, which is something you don’t always have the opportunity to do. The menu has a good selection considering the size of the restaurant and the staffing levels (there was two waiters on, one was the manager).

Portion sizes were good, and there was a lot of extras you could add onto your burgers to make them tailored for your taste buds. The food was hot and yummy! My friend said the portion sizes have got smaller since they first opened, but if I am honest we were still stuffed afterwards so it was all good!

Their alcoholic drinks choice is limited, but they had some beers and wines, shakes and a few cocktails.

The service wassimple and faultless. Not too much overinteraction like you might expect where I work! A nice chat with the manager on paying and away we went being waved off at the door with massive food bellies in our tummies.

I would definitely go again, even more so knowing the manager runs the cafe next door and it’s promoting local businesses! Great for families and groups of friends alike! It’s also nice to go to eat somewhere other than South End (south Croydon)!

“Good value”

Came here on Saturday night without booking and got a table after a few minutes wait. Bar is very very small (3 stools) but that is more than made up by the food and the size of the portions which are amazing. If you can through the mains then the desserts hit you. Great service, great food and great value for money.

As a family we eat out alot and by now we know what is good and what isn’t. This was goooooood, the food was fresh and excellently prepared and great portions, the live music was great and service was excellent.
I would recommend it to any one apart from old and boring people who don’t like good food and good entertainment.

Bit sceptical after looking at some reviews but I must say we three enjoyed the food. Had starters, calamari, buffalo wings, then burgers and steak with were all cooked to the way we had asked for. Nice ambience, would definately go back again. Well done!!

“Great Diner would visit again….”

Great atmosphere, decor really good, feels like an american diner. Food was really nice, large portions and reasonably priced for what it was.

Would definitely visit again.
