We travelled from Tulsa to meet with family from OKC. We got there a little earlier than expected, and had a hungry and fidgety 3 year old grandson with us. We were greeted warmly and the waiter, Lane, was exceptionally patient with the little one we were trying to corral! He is probably a highschool aged young man, certainly not... More

Like other reviews, this is a must do while traveling the mother road. It is a small, historic place with great food and service. I believe that the owner was an inspiration for portion of the Disney Cars movie. Had the meatloaf special and it was out of this world!

Tonight we traveled an hour to go to dinner at the Rock Cafe. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was awesome, but the best part of the night was our busboy, Lane. He had such a great attitude, took pictures for us, and asked the cook to make us bread pudding three minutes before the kitchen closed. The rest of... More

We had the German dish specialty from the menu and bread pudding for dessert. The food was great and the cook, Nick, and the server, Monica, were all great.

While driving Route 66, we found the Rock Cafe on Trip Advisor and decided to stop for lunch. We loved it! Fun atmosphere, friendly wait staff and loved learning about Betsy and their history. Vast selection of burgers, sandwiches, salads including jagerschnitzle and spaetzle. Fun place to stop and food was awesome as well!
