Yummy pie

Just had soup and pie. The cherry pie was just like granny used to make! The bean soup was good but cold. Very friendly and old west.

My husband and I both had the pot roast which was too salty and the sweet tea was watered down...just plain average. Our waitress was okay but almost disinterested. Won't be returning.

We stopped in at this restaurant for lunch on our way home from a trip. My 5 year old grandson has many food allergies so I was leery about this place. But I just showed them his list of allergies and it was no problem at all. He had a grilled chicken breast and some fruit and loved it. The... More

This has been a favorite dinner stop for us for several decades, from the old Route 66 days. Good, old-fashioned, homestyle cooking (meat loaf, pot roast, burgers, sandwiches etc.), good friendly service, and a generous dose of nostalgia.

Nice restaurant, friendly staff. Food was a little slow coming out, but it was pretty good. They have a Route 66 shop in the waiting area.

After a long day out in the hot desert most anything cold would taste good. At the Wagon Wheel, the waitresses are great, the kitchen is quick and the drinks are cold. The food is okay, nothing special.

Our party of 4 stopped for gas and food in Needles on our way to Santa Fe and enjoyed a pleasant meal in this iconic Route 66 diner. The menu has a variety of choices to suit anyone. My husband and friends had burgers and fries and I had breakfast. Everything was hot and cooked to perfection. Our waitress Jessie... More
