“A Classic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Food is so so but if you are a route 66 fan or a western/ 1920-50's movie fan it is worth the stop. You can see how this was the place to be back then. The hotel has it's original charm and there are pictures of stars everywhere. The restaurants okay but worth it just to enjoy the surroundings

“Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I eat here couple times a month, always Good, Staff are Great, used to have live music every Saturday evening, Wish they still did. The food is always excellent, not to hot or salty, you can wash it down with a cold beer if you like, they bring me a pitcher of cold iced tea, that hits the spot. well worth going.
