Twisters is a Route 66 original building built in 1926. The original Texaco gas station has been converted into Twisters garage bar. Our bar carries 17 beers, and 3 wines on tap, some of Arizona's best local brews. The restaurant serves some of the best steaks in Northern Arizona along with great 50's food.

Best ice cream

We were only in Williams four days and went to this place twice! Kids loved all the ice cream creations. Good old fashioned ice cream parlor style and 50s diner in one. We definitely will go back!

Good food, great ice cream, great atmosphere. You feel like you're back in the 50's. A lot of people miss it because it's a little down the main drag but it's worth the walk!

We stopped her for dinner before going on the Polar Express. The place is so neat with all the decor. The service was fast and attentive. The server was so friendly and gave some great tips on things to do and see. The food was fresh and made to order. We had. Wonderful experience and would recommend this place.

This was just classic. It had the right ambiance inside - with all the Coca-Cola paraphernalia, the checkered floor, some diner-style seating - as well as what looked like a 1955 Ford Crown Victoria in the carpark. Pity the boys weren't in 1950's type uniforms with those peaked-triangle hats, but still. And Williams is a delightful township that revels in... More

We went to Twisters for lunch because we wanted to see a real old style Route 66 diner. We weren't disappointed. The decor is great and absolutely in keeping with the theme. When we walked in, the lady behind the counter didn't even look up, but the young guy did and he was a very attentive server. Would have been... More

Loved the looks of the diner but we ordered a kids mac and cheese with applesauce, a vanilla shake, grilled cheese sandwich, fries and a lemonade and the bill came up to $22.00. I thought this was a little pricey for what I got but we were on vacation so did not let it bother me too much. The restaurant... More

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.
