MISSOURI — This holiday season, anyone seeking a little nostalgia should check out these diners with a 50s vibe. Shakes, rockabilly, and fast vehicles were popular before the turn of the century all over the nation. Though it is rare, nostalgia for the 1950s is still relevant.

Chuck-A-Burger, for instance, has been providing hamburgers since 1957. Although its patrons may have changed over the past 65 years, this eatery has not.
