Good value Route 66 roadhouse....

Stopped here for lunch whilst travelling Route 66 to Santa Monica. Food was usual roadhouse grub but well-presented and served by really pleasant and caring waitress. Good value for what was provided and worth a stop if you are passing by on Route 66. Eat here and you will not be disappointed.

Very nice atmosphere in the cafe, super friendly staff. Shame the food wasn't so good... Very plain and hash browns undercooked.

I first visited the Rock Cafe in 2009. Loved it then. It had just opened after a fire gutted the inside of the cafe. I had a hamburger back then that was scrumptious!! So today, I rode my motorcycle over 300 miles just to eat another one of those good burgers. I got there after the lunch rush...I think it... More

The café is off the turnpike half way between OKC and Tulsa. It is older that the hills and the only reason it is still standing is that is built totally out of rocks. Small disappearing little town so not much to choose from. Surprise! Darn good food. My son and I had an open face Buffalo burger. Tis misnamed... More

We enjoyed the nostalgia of the restaurant. The wait staff were friendly. The food was good, but not what i would call great. I would go back for the nostalgia. It's not like I did not like the food. It just wasn't "WOW", just good. The reason for going is the history. The kids liked the "Cars" theme. It's just... More

My wife and I were doing a Route 66 Road Trip through Oklahoma and stopped in the Rock Cafe for lunch. It's a great Route 66 cafe that really make you appreciate what that road was all about, and what few landmarks are left to enjoy. The service was terrific and very personal from the owner and the waitress explaining... More

Had to go to Stroud on business and there is not much here. So we decided to grab a lunch in historic Rock Cafe on Route 66 that was visited by Diners Driveins and Dives. Food was OK. I was not a fan of the chili but the spaetzle was nice find. My buddies salad was very good. Bread pudding... More

OK folks! This is a must for the family! The owner is up daily at the Crack of dawn making everything you eat with love. The food is made from scratch-no box nothing. Famous for chicken fry, some German named dish, buffalo burgers, etc.... but what makes this place special is the history. Thank you to the special waitress Sandy... More

This is our third trip to Rock Cafe on our Harleys. It was, again, wonderful! I love the cheese omlette, biscuits/gravy, and hash browns. Yum. Food portions are generous, waitresses sweet, and diet coke with an endless refill! Go. You won't be sorry!
