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

Me and my family have been to Route 66 on many occasions and it is our favourite thing about going to visit Devon. We would never pick another restaurant as Route 66 have never let us down; them being open 9-9 nearly every day helps as we can go whenever we feel hungry! Every member of their staff is very...

We needed somewhere to eat before heading on to a party and stumbled across this quirky little restaurant - and boy were we pleased! Great food with superb authentic American (nothing is too much trouble) service. Delightful evening thank you

So, I rang up and asked if they had a table and after much 'humming and hahing' they said they would be able to give us a table for 6 people. What they didn't say is that they also do DVD rental and out table was two pushed together in that section of the building. Such a pleasure to eat... More

I have often visited this restaurant with my husband and we always get excellent service. The food is great and if you want to change it up a little don't be afraid to ask as iv always found them to be very accommodating in this matter. Thanksgiving week is not to be missed either :-) I love the busy walls... More

We feel lucky to have this restaurant so near to where we live. It is open all day, serving food all day, which is convenient when you can't squeeze meals in at the usual 12-2 and 6-9 typical serving times. Great snacks, desserts and hearty American comfort food. We just had another enjoyable meal there tonight. I had my favourite... More

I've been to a few so called American diners in my time, but this is by far and away the best I've been to outside of Texas. Wonderful, friendly, helpful service - Gina really does give you a warm welcome - and the food is real, proper American food. The Reese's peanut butter shake outshone every other shake I've ever...
