I believe he does a pretty awesome job in introducing a Sabahan like me to the Southern American cuisine. The restaurant focus is on Authenticity, Value for money, Cleanliness with a Friendly, warm and cosy environment. I think this restaurant is heaven sent to all my wishes!
Now for the Foods!
Big Bad Buffalo Wings Classic buffalo wings served with celery sticks and Retro's very own hot sauce (1/2 dozen) RM 21
I tasted another recently opened restaurant in KK City and in my opinion they are rather similar. These tasted pretty good though.
Retro's Naughty Nachos
Corn tortillas served with sour cream, grated parmesan and cheddar cheese RM 17
Not too hot for my liking, just nice! :)
Hickory Cheddar Burger
200g char grilled ground brisket with tangy BBQ sauce and dressed with lettuce, tomatoes and onions and grated cheddar RM 22
For Burger lovers, you must try this!
Side Dishes : Tomatoes and Corn Salsa and Dirty Rice.
Garlic Bread, Garden Salad, Southern'Slaw, Garlic Mash Potatoes and V.O.D. (meaning veggie-of-the-day), Fat Finger Fries & Potato Wedges.

There were also Mambo Gumbo with Rice for RM7.90. Its a Hot Louisiana style shrimp soup and Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad for RM10.70. Both dishes I forgot to take their photo as they were too delicious to stay longer on their serving bowl and plate! In that I am going back for their Salad ^_^
After our dinner, we were invited to their Bar at the First Floor. The Bar is no less than awesome too! Finally a place I can rest my ears from the hammering of technos around the city. Their line-up of weekly DJs are hired specifically based on their experience in mixing retro music from 70s disco to 80s new wave to 90s pop with everything in between thrown in. The club has a strict policy to never play any songs after 1999 to maintain the retro environment that they have established. A live band is also performing three nights a week (Wednesday, Friday and Saturday) that are specifically trained to entertain you with hits from the yesteryears. Another awesome and plus points in my list! The outlet is littered with retro memorabilia to bring back the glory days of your youth whether that time was in the 70s, 80s or 90s. Ambient lighting on the floor, walls and ceiling are switched on at an eye pleasing brightness to heighten this experience. They also have ASTRO just to ensure that we are in the right decade. The disco lighting has been designed to ensure that your clubbing experience is in tune to the theme and yet not harsh. Say no more! This is my go to place from now on!
The cool bar table with rechargeable LED lights was so cool! They change color every few seconds. Nice! ^_^
