Worth the stop on a hot day for a coffee ice cream soda and an orange float! The staff were friendly and the restaurant was clean.

Stopped here for food during our overnight stay in Williams as the prices were reasonable and if looked so retro. Place was very quiet after a very busy weekend. It is certainly the type of place you want to see on a Route 66. Staff were very helpful and let us take photos of their decor.

We were on our way to the Grand Canyon and stopped here for lunch. It has a very cool vibe, with 50s decor and music, books and IQ puzzle on the table to play with while you wait for your order. The fries were obviously cut from fresh potatoes, the burger was delicious and huge. Our waiter was a nice... More

The burgers and fries were wonderful! The drinks were a bit weak - needed more flavoring. The atmosphere was great. My son really enjoyed the car out front.

This place is the typical good Route 66 diner but be prepared to empty your wallet for the food. Waiters, etc weren't very friendly and like I said it's expensive. Atmosphere brings it back up to an 3/5 I guess.

Stopped in for ice cream to finish our day of exploring. Told the poor kid 3 times "No Chocolate" but he covered the banana split anyways with chocolate. Over $30 for 3 deserts is ridiculous.

My wife and I have been going here for years and loved it. It changed hands and everything stayed the same except for the price, it sky rocketed. Nothing has changed except the price and $7+ dollars for a banana split was to much. Else where in town you can get them bigger for much less money $3-5.

Great atmosphere and look. The food was incredible and well worth a stop if you are heading through Williams. They had a live musician while we were there too. Definitely worth it.
