HAPPY DAYS: New 1950s-style diner opens in Toowoomba
IT MIGHT be new but Toowoomba's latest eatery is a step back in time.
At The Doo Bop Diner in the Range Shopping Centre, it's "Happy Days" seven days the week.
The 1950s-styled diner strives to bring people away from their screens and together - like the "good old days".
Tony and Amber Roser bought the diner as something for themselves and daughters Tiffany Roser and Kimberly McConville to work together on and grow up with.
The business was originally Simply Seafood, which the family bought six months ago. They changed it to Doo Bop Diner three months ago.
They revitalised the eatery to something that completely represents the family.
"This is us," Mrs Roser said.
"We love the era, the fashion, the hair, the music, the cars. What's not to love?
"There's a bit of a revival happening at the moment too, which made it perfect timing."
The diner serves classic American meals like burgers, trifles, waffles, tarts, apple crumbles, milkshakes and spiders.
It also has steaks, chicken parmigiana, crumbed sausages, local glass-bottled soft drinks and roasts on Sundays.
The Doo Bop Diner has a juke box, board games and hosts community events like "Marilyn and Elvis" dress-up nights and car shows.
"I think nowadays we're missing a lot of the old-school values," Mrs Roser said.
"We just wanted to create a space to bring back the good old days when you used to spend genuine time together with the family or friends."
The Doo Bop Diner is opened seven days a week from 7am-8pm.
