Great atmosphere

This was the most fun I'd had at dinner in a long time. Very casual. The place has great atmosphere, great service, and good food.

Just had ice cream and it was excellent. The place is worth seeing 50's decor inside and out. Right on route 66 so the theme fits right in.

If you like your food frozen, thawed and fried this is the place to go. The only reason to go here if for ice cream on a hot afternoon.

I got a sundae and my husband got a malt! He was excited because they even gave him the left over malt that wouldn't fit in the glass! The food looked great! Really wished we would have come to eat instead of just desserts The desserts were AWESOME! A must for our Route 66 trip!! The gift shop was small... More

The atmosphere was good. The ice cream was delicious (from kids point of view) Service was slow. Three soda jerks talking but not waiting on us. One soda jerk was working and asked one of the others to help ys. Kudos to him. Three instead of four star because they don't have sugar free ice cream and looked at me... More

This place is cool for the 50s diner feel, but prices are high and service was slow. We paid $26 for two shakes, a dish of ice cream, and an order of fries. The fries took over 30 minutes to receive and we only got them because my husband got up and asked about them twice. Skip eating here.

My family and I stopped here after a day at the Grand Canyon after seeing the reviews and rating. We (all five) sat at the counter and it took almost 15min before anyone even acknowledged us.....in plain view! Took another 10min to get our drinks and then she walked away again without taking our order so after almost a 1/2... More

this is a restaurant that brings back memories of the 50's. It has a great menu and you will just love the malts, milk shakes, French fries, hamburgers and hot dogs. Don't miss it. If you are lucky you might even meet the Mayor of Williams.

Yummy and a unique atmosphere that is charming. Very large scoops and very friendly staff. If we were staying longer, we would have gone back a second time. PS - we didn't have the banana split - but we saw one - big enough fo 2 - or 3!
