If you're a fan of going to places that will make you feel like you've traveled back in time and you're a fan of delicious classic milkshakes, we have just the place for you. Big State Fountain Grill in Irving looks like it came straight from the movies  With tons of great food and a mighty statue of Elvis, this diner is truly from a different era.
