INDIANAPOLIS -- Take a delicious trip down memory lane at the Rock-Cola 50's Cafe on Indianapolis' east side.

"A lot of younger couples, I wanna bring my mom, I wanna bring my grandmother, and kids even love the place," said Greg Codozor, co-owner, Rock-Cola 50's Cafe

Long-time friends Dan Laria and Greg Codozor bought the cafe 10 years ago

"We went to high school together, graduated from Beech Grove High School together," said Dan Iaria, co-owner, Rock-Cola 50's Cafe

They were once cooks together at Bonanza, but now you can find them over the grill at their own restaurant.

There's Hoosier history all around the Rock-Cola 50's Cafe. They even brought back an old-time favorite drink with Indiana roots, Chocola.

"It's similar to chocolate milk but its thinner and sweeter and richer," said Iaria.

There are burgers, Reuben's and Chicago-style Italian beef on the menu. Codozor says they're really known for their grilled tenderloin.

With memorabilia covering the walls, the cafe has been a popular place for photo shoots. It's even been featured on national TV shows.
