Good diner food, great waitress, loved the quaint gift shop

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

Off route 66 and I 40. Stopped in during a road trip. Excellent home cooking. Really neat place, with cool little gift shop. All off the staff were just super nice too.

Stopped in for dinner late on a Thursday night. Fairly empty but service was excellent. Strawberry vinaigrette salad was so-so -- mainly iceberg lettuce, but the dressing seemed made from scratch and was very tasty. The California (?) skillet of eggs with spinach was pretty good-the home fries seemed freshly made and were excellent. Service was also excellent. Worth a... More
