About Us

welcome to hot rod text

If you’re a first-timer, we can guarantee you’ll be back time and time again. Once you’ve had a taste of what we serve up, we bet you won’t be able to stay away from our authentic, hearty, 50’s style food. Hot Rod Diner is a small, family-run restaurant in Gravesend, Kent, with a 50’s American diner theme. We are passionate about this nostalgic era, so from everything to thick, tasty shakes, to stacks of American-style waffles, you get all the flavours from across the pond, with a few touches from home, too. Hot Rod Diner pride ourselves on great service and our friendly, upbeat staff are always happy to help. We keep our fresh ingredients as local as we can, and most of our grub is made right here in-house. Burgers, steaks, ribs, a huge selection of desserts, and the best homemade shakes in Kent! There is something for everyone at Hot Rod Diner!
