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!

This is a must stop on a Route 66 trip. The diner is exactly what I had hoped. They food was some of the best diner food we have came across since leaving Amarillo. Malts were delicious!! Carlos was our waiter. He was excellent and made our dinner even more special.

We stopped by this diner on our way thru williams. Doesn't look much from the outside apart from the car...but the inside was great service was friendly. We just had coke floats because it was afternoon. They have a small shop with coke goodies. Def worth a visit.

We stopped here on our way to Flagstaff based on reviews here. We weren't disappointed. It's a converted fuel station and it really has the back in time feel. Pink Cadillac out front, checkered floor, old school diner seats and tables, old school signs. A lot of the stuff is reproductions and it's not an actual diner from the 1950's,... More

Arrived after opening and was completely ignored by the two gentlemen who were inside cleaning. Stood there for about 5 minutes and was never acknowledged so we ended up leaving and going to the diner next door and had a great meal. Don't know why this place gets so many good reviews when they turn away paying customers.

Loved this diner - we were traveling Route 66 and made stops all along the route and this diner was a highlight for sure. Very clean, food was excellent diner fare and the staff was very friendly. The atmosphere was pure fun! Don't miss it if you travel here.
