The robbery happened some time before 2:50 a.m. at the diner on the Northwest Freeway and Hollister Street.
The suspects got away before police arrived, and we do not know about their whereabouts.
The area manager told Eyewitness News the crooks got away with an undisclosed amount of cash, but did not hold up any of the people eating inside the restaurant.
