We were looking for Denny's, but decided to give a local place a try. No one had come by after at least 10 minutes. Finally, a young man asked the booth behind us -- seated after us -- for their drinks, and we managed to catch his eye. He apologized and brought us drinks. Several minutes later, a waitress took...

If you don't want to stop at one of the several franchise fast food places, I strongly recommend Juicy's. We have eaten there a number of times and never had a bad meal. The menu is basic cafe with several specialties added and more variety than you might expect. The food is good and the place is clean. In my... More

I stopped here for lunch not expecting too much from the look of the town off I-40 East in California. This restaurant offered scrumptious cuisine and warm and cheerful service. I had the veggie wrap, iced tea and a large slice of salted caramel crunch which were all delicious. Needless to say, I didn't need much for dinner after this.... More

Stopped on our way from San Diego to the Grand Canyon. The building was large, clean, and not terribly busy at 3:30 PM on this Monday afternoon. The device was friendly and prompt. Our house salad was comprised of fresh ingredients and our fish an chips were served quickly. Three batter dipped fillets were served which were tasty and hot.... More

But keep in mind you are in Needles. Where restaurants in town close for dinner at 7:00!we has bacon and eggs, and ham and eggs which were OK except the seasoned potatoes were cold. Not fresh made. Service was cheerful and excellent. Rye toast did have a hint of rye and the sourdough a hint of that too. If in... More

Stopped in for lunch while cruising Route 66 tour. Baja burger was outstandingly good. Fresh hand made patty with cheddar cheese, nicely done bacon strips and a fresh, toasted bun with house sauce. Mmmmmmm good. Significant other had rueban sandwich, prepared expertly. The most important thing - everything arrived hot. Not common, it seems, lately. Our fellow travellers had only... More

Passing through and got a recommendation from our hotel. We were nicely surprised by the quality and service in this very small town. Would certainly eat there again if in this area again!! Need to get off the freeway...., but worth it!!
