Favorite desert dinner stop

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.

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

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.

My husband and friends had burgers and fries and I had breakfast. Everything was hot and cooked to perfection. Our waitress Jessie... More

Arrived in Needles hungry and after searching, found this place. Turned out to be an over the top western themed diner. However food was good and staff helpful. Standard diner food but a route 66 experience.

We stopped in for breakfast on a Saturday morning. All I can say about this place is that it was...okay. The food truly is "home cooking" as in, I could do as well or better at home. My husband did very much enjoy the gravy on the biscuits and gravy, but my sausage patty had some sort of hard chunk... More
