Haven’t we all looked for the perfect vintage diner with great food at a decent price point? I know I have. Sure, Steak and Shake might be a convenient stop for many Plant High School students, but do we really all think that they have the best burgers in town?

Though they make some mean milkshakes, the ideal image of a hamburger shop lies in Goody Goody Hamburgers. With just one step inside of the Hyde Park diner, you already smell the magic happening

Every time I walk inside, I imagine a scene straight out of a Disney movie, like in “Princess and the Frog” when Tiana’s restaurant opens, and everyone and their momma shows up. The smell of mouth-watering burgers, fresh out of the oven pies and a clean environment all make the trip even more enthralling.

From the tile floors to the tall ceilings, green and white accents are ubiquitous, which gives the place all the more of a vintage feeling.

The shape of the tiles really ties the place together and give it a more organized look. The entrances to the outdoor seating areas are open pathways, which means everyone sitting inside will be able to easily access fresh, crisp air as they munch on their meals.

Seating areas consist of booths, tables and bar stools to give customers the freedom to sit wherever they feel the most comfortable. The employees sport the green and white accents, which pair perfectly with the smiles on their faces every time they take someone’s order.

And now, for the real showstopper: the menu. Goody Goody’s range of items is longer than any IHOP or Burger King’s will ever be. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all served at the 1960s-feeling shop. Omelettes, a variety of breakfast sandwiches and a multitude of decadent breakfast options are offered in the morning on the brunch menu.

The lunch and dinner menus, however, are what make Goody Goody’s reputation so massive.

At lunch and dinner, one can be served a corndog, hotdog, salad, a juicy burger cooked to taste with any type of patty or topping possible and some of the best chili cheese fries known to man. Breakfast is served from opening time until an hour before noon, while lunch and dinner are served after breakfast until closing time.

Needless to say, I think Goody Goody is one of the best restaurants I’ve ever eaten in, and that says something big considering I’m a picky eater. I know hamburgers and meat in general aren’t everyone’s cup of tea (which they serve as well), but lucky for everyone, their menu offers a wide variety of foods to choose from.
