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.

We ate here on the final night of our American holiday last year in the hope of a true American diner style experience and that is exactly what we got! Bizarrely in this town, even in the height of summer, all of the restaurants seemed to close early but luckily we just managed to get here in time (I don't... More

They have big, like really big hamburguers.. unfortunately that night I was sick and I only ate a toast and english tea. My family had the chance of tasting their hamburguers and steaks and they just said that those were the best hamburguers ever. The only situation that I didn't like was that I wanted to keep the cup where... More
