This is a really great place to eat. Very reasonable price and 50's decorations. Very route 66. I love it

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

After a decent hike I stumbled into Williams. googled for best malted in Williams and got...Twisters! I double checked with some locals and off I went. One strawberry/raspberry malted later and I was convinced....great! The place was just emptying out of some bus tourists so it was a bit crowded and tables needed to be 'bused' so I slinked off...

Twisters is a delightful place to down any and all things ice cream. With a 50's motif, it's hard not to enjoy everything, but the chocolate-covered cherry Blue Bell ice cream earned an A+. I saw they also served sandwiches, but it's beyond me why anyone would have a hamburger, when he could have a hot fudge sundae. Or...both! Be... More

The decor is certainly evocative of the good old days of diners of days gone by. The menu is pretty limited to burgers, chicken fingers, catfish, and ice cream treats, but hey, that's why you came, wasn't it? The lady down the street in the art gallery said that Twisters had the best fries around, and they were quite good.... More

This is a fun place to take the kids to experience a glimpse into the past and enjoy a root beer float with a burger and fries. The peg board game at our booth was a hit with our 10 year old granddaughter! This is a great place to stop with the kids on the way to the Grand Canyon... More
