Lovely meal in the main restaurant, followed by milkshakes in the express restaurant. Lovely friendly staff, good quality food and so much of it. Only 'down' point toilet in the express could do with a jolly good clean and spruce up!!

You probably wouldn't expect to see an American diner in Axminster but Route 66 is a great little find. I have been here a couple of times, when visiting friends, it's great for a coffee, breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Very authentic food and decor, very friendly staff/owner.

Fantastic quality American food, lots of flavour and all the trimmings. The service was the best and we had a great experience.

Visited Route 66 for breakfast and we were not dis-appointed excellent friendly service and fantastic food in a lovely quirky setting. Breakfast served until 1130 and if you want a taste of the US its the place to go.

All of the food was excellent, and the... More

Great American grub! Good tasting food, with attentive staff. Slightly on the unhealthy side, with a lot of meat dishes and burgers on the menu. But great value for money with a good ol' American taste! And while you're there - rent a DVD!

We visited twice in a week while on holiday, once at lunchtime and once in the evening. We found the place fun and quirky, and the food really good for the prices charged. On our evening visit the Texan owner served us. She is a Bulgarian property owning belly dancing teacher who is full of life and experiences and knows... More
