Throwback to route 66

We stopped here on a business trip as we were going through. The hamburgers were really good and the restaurant was a throwback to the route 66. Fun relaxing and the wait staff was great.

Found this intriguing historic diner when we exited interstate to refuel. The interior is a mixture of kitsch ranging from odd Rt. 66 knickknacks and mementos, western motifs, to numerous religious decorations. And, oh yes, there's also Elvis! But in this setting you will find a friendly and attentive wait staff who serve up pretty good, nothing fancy food, that... More

We took a lunch break driving along Route 40 and just by chance pulled into the Route 66 Restaurant. It's definitely a fun, camp sort of place. Locals and folks off the highway were there. Food (tacos were the special of the day) was very good. Salsa was outstanding. Service was excellent. Everything arrived hot to the table (a rarity... More

The outside and inside decor are the best parts of this so-so restaurant. Nothing special about the food or service or price.

Run down, slow service, low quality food. Waitress was nice.but not the food.. McDonalds is across the street and most likely be better and I despise McDonalds. I don't know how these places get such high ratings.

First - This is a must stop old diner on Route 66, true roadie decor right down to the red and black counter stools that spell out Route 66 Cafe. We've been here many times in the past, but it was not quite the same this time. The welcome was always warm and the food was always excellent, not to... More

cute old place....overpriced for what you get...don;t get steak, so tough, can't chew it...looks like diner from the 50's which is great for route 66, but I think the food was left over from the 50's
