Fabulous original Diner

Really enjoyed our visit to Emma Jean's and loved the fact that the diner has not been modernised in any way. Well worth going out of your way for.

Emma Jean's opened in 1947 and is little changed since then. It may well be the most authentic diner on Route 66. I recommend the patty melt. On my first visit, I was overwhelmed with how big it was, but on a more recent stop, I learned that you can get either a 1/2 lb. or 1/4 lb version. Either... More

The place was featured on Triple D. Very small place so we had to wait for a room at the counter but it was worth it. The other diners were good about moving down a seat, as needed to make room for new arrivals. Friendly place and family owned. Caution portions are generous. I had the Brian burger and it... More

Overall, this is a great place to eat, their food is always made in front of your eyes and served in a large and very tasteful portion. The ambiance here this also great, it truly feel like if you are at home enjoying food with friends and family. If you truly want to enjoy a good Hamburger or a great... More

Stopped there again for a late lunch, really great old fashion burger & great service. If your solo, sit at the bar as seating is limited

I love old school, which is what this diner is, this place has been around a long time, 40's I think. You must stop here after the museum in Victorville. They are down the same street, just ask the people in the museum, or Google it. This place is a reminder of what a cafe used to be. The food... More

It is a small quaint little diner. It seats about 25 total customers. We were a group of four and sat on bar stools overlooking the kitchen. It reminded me of an old sixties diner. The food was excellent and not overpriced. It is a great place to stop to get breakfast/brunch/lunch.

Real Route 66 history. Open since 1947. It is GREAT! Proper roadside cafe and got to meet the family who run the place. Just down the road from the museum so a great place for lunch after a visit there.
