Serves meat, vegan options available. 1950s American diner motif with lots of pink and rock n roll references. Has a separate menu for vegans that includes a variety of vegan burgers and salads. Coffee is fair trade. Previously operated as Pink Ladies - 50s Diner. Note: The kitchen closes at 9:30pm, no take-away after that. Open Mon-Fri 11:30am-2:30pm, 5:00pm-10:00pm, Sat 11:30am-11:30pm.

First Review by BrynnTrussell

Nostalgia-fueled nosh - Edit

Anyone who loves kitsch or longs to return to the time of poodle skirts and rock 'n' roll, will be hopelessly devoted (as Sandy sings in Grease) to this restaurant, where a Fifties-style diner has been replicated to the smallest detail. Waitresses are kitted out in rosy-hued uniforms, and music from an American radio station with an Eisenhower-era playlist blares from the speakers. Vegans have a choice of several burgers (as well as sides and a few other items), and although the battered-and-fried type of patty is not my personal favorite, with its made-from-scratch barbecue sauce and freshly baked bun, my Dancing Gunman (see photo) was undeniably tasty. My husband's Green Velvet Fire Starter (also pictured) featured house-made jalapeño mayonnaise and sliced avocado. We split an order of Cross Cuts, or waffle fries, to leave ourselves room for the vegan brownie, which arrived still warm, with a scoop of vanilla and a pile of whipped cream — tinted pink, of course!

Pros: Meticulous attention to decor, Fun spin on "greasy spoon", Helpful staff

okaaaaay - Edit

They have some vegan options, which is great, but all in all it wasn't that exciting :-/
I had much better vegan burgers and also the dessert - a vegan icecream Shake for 12€(!) was not as I would have expected.
The location is definitely cool and impressive, but to come to Esslingen for semi-good and pricey fast food isn't something I prefer...

Geat Diner in a pink, American style - Edit

The atmosphere at the Ladies is great! So many thinks are pink and there are great details in the decoration.

The burgers are very tasty! There is a good vegan choice and you can also get gluten free bread, if you want.

Pros: great choice, tasty, gluten-free bread available

Cons: no reservation possible, not near to the city center, in an industrial area

Fun Greasy American Food - Edit

Great vegan menu, with the same variety of "burger" on a regular burger menu. Meaning all the same with different toppings. The vegan patty was a big hit with my friend and I, I had a spicy Jalapeno burger and he had a classic. I had waffle fries, which I love and he had regular.. shockingly this was too much food for me. I think it was all the grease, but it was delicious.

I also managed to find space later for a brownie sundae with oreo and raspberry soy ice cream - it was wonderful. I'm craving another.

They offer lots of fun drinks too.

There is always a long line waiting and we only ate there after trying 3 times and finally going early (@ 6:00pm). People often show up dressed in '50's style teen garb, like poodle skirts and tight white Tee's.

Pros: Reminds me of the US, Dessert , Waffle fries

Cons: no reservations, kitchen closes at 9, you'll smell like the grill
