Nice sit down or carry out place.

While staying at the Econolodge just above the resturant I walked down to grab some tacos for $1 tacos on Tuesday. It does awhile to get your food after you have ordered it I think because it is usually busy with vacationers or travelers rolling through. Seems like an average diner resturant, clean... read more

My son and I ate here after finding our first choice closed for renovation. We were on a cross country trip and as can be imagined ate at many, many places along the way. This was HANDS DOWN the worst experience of the whole trip. The place is crummy looking, the service was indifferent and the food was reminiscent of... More

We stopped in Santa Rosa on our road trip and found the Route 66 Restaurant for lunch. The place was understaffed for lunch as there was only one wait staff and the cook. It took some extra time to place our order but it arrived in a timely manner. It was Friday and the special was Frito Pie. Never heard... More

We stopped on a Friday night at 7:30 to have supper. Initial drink service was quick, order was taken promptly and after that- there was no service what so ever. After waiting for 45 minutes for our food, I asked the waitress if it was in process....we needed to get going and to cancel the order if it was not... More

We stopped by chance and found this diner. The restrooms were immaculate. The menu was extensive, a little slow once we had ordered, but good hot food and cooked for each customer. the decor was superb and I cannot emphasise enough how clean and pleasant it was. Great fun.

We were traveling on I-40 and just wanted to get a quick bite. There were a couple of cars parked in front and it looked like a nice nostalgic place to stop. It was everything we thought it was. Great decor if Route 66. We opted for Mexican food and it was OK. Servers were friendly and food was served... More

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.

We went up to the female owner at the front and showed... More
