This is a great place. The food is good, the people are firendle and very accommodating. I asked for something off the menu and they did it for me. Service is great, personal and polite. I had a burger and my wife had a rack of ribs, proper American fare.

This place was recommended in the guest book of the B&B that we stayed in, and since we fancied a burger we thought we'd give it a go. The food was good and it came out nice and quick, there was loads of choice and the waitress was very pleasant. Would definitely recommend it if your in the area!

We spotted this place a few weeks ago on a visit to Axminster; it looked quirky and fun so we called in for a drink. I enjoyed my coffee and my daughter loved her milkshake so we decided to come back sometime and have a meal. We returned today. It all started well; we were the only customers and quickly... More

On the main street in Axminster, this restaurant is the real deal with stacks of genuine American Memorbilia and an American menu. Reasonably priced, the kids will love it!

Found this place while getting lost by taking wrong turn and how glad we were. The food was amazing, delicious, large. The staff were lovely too, very good customer service, I recommend Route 66.

The rain is pouring, the roads are flooded and it's Saturday night. I know, let's drive 25 miles to an unknown diner in Axminster! Well, after two attempts at traversing the floods we came upon Axminster and headed for Route 66. I'd passed Route 303 on the A303 on numerous occasions and really fancied a proper American-style burger. However, having... More

So I have recently moved away from Axminster and the only thing I miss about it is Route 66. U can drop in and grab a DVD out of the huge choice, or you can sit and have a burger,wrap,jacket potato,nachos or even a steak meal for lunch or you can go In the evening for a relaxing civilised meal...

I visited Route 66 for lunch and to be fair, the decor is very nice - done out like an American diner and loads of DVDs and pictures of American icons on the walls. We were seated and greeted by a very polite and respectful waitress which was nice. She took our drink orders: milkshake and a coke. The milkshake... More

Living in Axminster we have been in here quite a few times. Gina and her staff are always very hospitable and friendly, and having just got back from the States it was like we were still on holiday.

After a long bus ride we were hungry. This place looked unusual but never judge a book by its cover as they say. There is a menu which reminded me of the old days on the east coast of the USA. Greeted by a very friendly member of staff. Makes a change these days of sour faced staff in other... More
