Happy Days Diner Melton || Restaurant Review

So last night, David (the boyfriend of 4 years) and I decided to spontaneously go out for dinner and watch the new Hunger Games: Catching Fire movie. We decided to eat at the newly opened Happy Days Diner at the Woodgrove Shopping Centre in Melton. I snapped a couple of photos to show you guys what the place and food looks like.
As soon as you walk in the restaurant, it’s got an American diner feel to it. They had booths which had their own little jukeboxes that played two songs per $1 you put in. The waitresses were nice and friendly and once we have ordered, the food was quick to come.
As an entree, we ordered Poutine, which is a Canadian dish. My boyfriend’s brother, who is getting married to a lovely Canadian woman could not stop talking about Poutine and how good this dish is. For those of you who are not familiar with it, it’s chips (or fries as Americans would call it) topped with cheese curd and brown gravy. I know that we’re obviously not in Canada so I wasn’t expecting it to be the best Poutine going around but it wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be – tastewise. I have put up photos of the Happy Days Poutine and a traditional Canadian Poutine so you can see for yourself.

For our main, although the menu had a fair bit to choose from, we both decided to get burgers. David’s cheese burger was pretty good. The beef patty tasted of fresh herbs – which was nice. I decided on a chicken teriyaki burger that wasn’t too bad either. See photo below. I wasn’t able to finish the entire burger as it was quite a big serve and I was saving some room for the popcorn after. 😉

So overall, it was a pretty good experience. The food were priced reasonably and they have a wide range of dishes to choose from. From burgers to salads, from milkshakes to spiders.
Although it seems that the burgers are quite unhealthy, I believe that anything in moderation is okay.
Any of you guys have been to an American themed diner before? Let me know what your experience was like!
