Legend Dick Van Dyke doesnt let his 90 years slow him down.

Van Dyke and his quartet, The Vantastix, were enjoying a meal together at a Dennys in Santa Monica when they burst into song. Diners at the restaurant surrounded the group to record the free performance.

A tweet from Van Dykes Twitter account highlighted the video and said, Breakfast at Dennys with a side of grits makes me want to sing!!

Commonly known for his singing and dancing roles in Bye Bye Birdie, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Disneys Mary Poppins and The Dick Van Dyke Show, Van Dyke is also a producer and comedian. He is the recipient of five Emmys, a Tony and a Grammy.
