In 1989, 5 & Diner was created as a place where people would be transported in time to a place where life was simpler. In the process Ken Higginbotham created the legendary 5 & Diner Restaurants. The no-holds-barred 50’s flashback theme with affordable, top-quality food including award-winning burgers and shakes.
Ken’s concept continues to evolve and expand. The 5 & Diner has become a landmark in Phoenix and a tradition for many, including movie stars, sports celebrities and our faithful guests. Today there are company-owned and franchised 5 & Diner restaurants streching from coast to coast, and we are building new diners all the time. Our first two diners were modular buildings, however we now build all our Diners on site.
