I have been past this tram- car style diner heaps of times, and have always wanted to check it out; so finally on Wednesday I realised the dream !!
Inside Starvin Marvin's was like stepping into a bit of a time warp. Like into the backdrop to a retro movie from the 50's or 60's.
The jukebox in the entrance way was playing pleasant mix of music of the era; and the atmosphere was of pleather, laminate, chrome and nostalgic road signs.
The American style menu was just as pleasing ! And the portions stereotypically sized.
To eat I had:
Amarillo fries (called Texas fries here,) so fries topped with beef chilli, cheese and spring onion.
American beef burger with cheese (which was weighed down by a 3 cm thick slab of meat; to which I added ketchup and mustard.)
Side of curly fries and glass of Tango.
Two crunchy waffles topped with a toffee sauce, cream and ice cream
A cup of English breakfast tea (which was surprisingly also supersized.)
Taking the pics here was equally as enjoyable, however fro some reason the full effect of the neon lights was lost on my camera phone. Not to worry, the feeling of staggering out of there after a good feed will be a just as appropriate memory.
