Historic Route 66 Stay

This place was way cool! The food and the service were awesome and reasonable. Lots to look at and converse about in the restaurant itself as well as outside.

I tried both the buffalo burger and the jaeger schnitzel with spaetzle. I enjoyed the burger more but both were well prepared. Burger was top notch with excellent flavors. Even bun toasted to perfection. Gravy on pork was excellent as well. Service was fine. No complaints. Would return.

The birthplace of Cars! So much fun for my daughter and such a cool historic building. Burgers and onion rings were delicious.

Nothing really to write home about. Food is good but a bit pricey. Service is fair. Nothing spectacular but a decent place to get a real burger.

We "had" to visit Rock Café. It's a popular diner on Rt. 66 in Oklahoma, besides, it's where the idea for the movie "Cars" originated. We purposefully frequent small restaurants & cafe's on small state hwy's across the country. This rates near the bottom. Parking, poor. Service, average. Menu variety, decent. Food quality, very substandard & POOR. Nostalgia, very nice.... More

I stopped by Rock Café in Stroud on the way back to Okla. City - A friend told me about place - The hamburgers were fantastic - I am not much for eating chips or fries but the Rock Cafe' must be using some good meat in their hamburgers.

Although we only live <60 miles from here, this was our 1st visit but won't be our last! Boys loved it & enjoyed seeing all the memorabilia, cars goodies, & most of all writing on the walls. Food was great. Friendly service as expected in OK. It won't disappoint! Save room for some homemade peach cobbler ala mode.

Bryane had the buffalo burger and onion rings. I had the jagerschitzel and spaetzle. Our entrees were yummy. Lane was our server and Amber was the cook. Lane spent sometime showing us the various pictures and memorabilia in the restaurant. He also gave us some information about the area. He was delightful. Don't miss if in the area!

I was a little hesitant after reading other reviews but we stopped and thoroughly enjoyed the meal...and the homemade dessert. The staff was courteous, the food was prompt and fresh and delicious and the atmosphere was fun! My children, husband and I would definitely stop by again if ever in this part of Oklahoma.
