We have just completed our Route 66 road trip and stopped here for lunch - really only because we were starving and there wasn't anything before it on the stretch of Route 66 in California.
There was no atmosphere, and rather than a nice trip down memory lane it was just run down. Food was awful. Staff a little odd and busy with bus load of tourists who stopped for a quick photo and to purchase a t shirts - rather than serving us! The place needs alot of TLC. To top it off we had to pay an automatic tip which we didnt want to and they wouldnt remove it - there was only 4 of us.
We say to a drive by photo shoot, do not stop until you get to Barstow.
