We thought this would be an interesting place to stop, and we like to support a small businesses. I definitely don’t recommend it if you’re pulling an rv, like we were. The side road leading to Steward’s hasn’t been maintained and has tons of potholes. When we made it into the parking lot, we saw a rough looking building with some boarded up windows. A handwritten sign on the door says masks are required. We turned around & left. The store on the other side of the highway was a fabulous stop and easy to pull in & out of.

I don’t know how anyone could give this place more than one star. It looks like someone inherited a place that was once fun and interesting, yet they’ve done nothing to keep it up. What a waste of time and waste of property. Prices were ridiculous to say the least. I love quirky stops along the road, but this is not worth 5 minutes.

Stopped in since had seen postings that it was a “must stop”. Horrible. No ostrich as advertised. Road getting to store horrible with holes. The guy working there did not say a word the whole time we were there looking at rocks…he just had his nose in his phone. They do have a lot of neat rocks/petrified wood. There have to better better places

This is one of my favorite places in Arizona. I love the art and hope some more of it can be restored. The dinosaurs and decorations are one of a kind. I hope they get a male ostrich, so I can buy eggs again. Bought several beautiful pieces of petrified wood. Been coming to this store since 2002. I always feed the ostriches and find something I want to buy. The Stewart's are very nice people. Last week the store was closed, but they saw me by the ostriches and opened up for me. This is a route 66 must see. Feed the ostriches and find a souvenir. Another suggestion I have for the owners is to sell cold soft drinks. Otherwise it is perfect.

This place was hands down, one of the creepiest places I have ever been! My life flashed before my eyes on several occasions while we were here and I was constantly assessing for an escape route if necessary (and damnit, I was wearing my Tom's. . .).

When my husband and I pulled up, we were promptly greeted by a lone fellow, who I presume is the owner, and there was no one else around. Shortly after we went inside, a woman materialized out of no where. They both watched us like hawks, which made me feel super uncomfortable.

The inside looked like a large garage sale of rocks, there was also other items, jewelry, and other trinkets littered throughout. There was also a fenced side yard of rocks where the only way in and out of the yard is through the house of rocks. I will say that they have a lot of rocks and petrified wood, but the owner(s) seemed to have limited knowledge of the non-petrified wood items but was willing to make a deal and going for the hard sell. But even the "deals" were more expensive than some of the other petrified wood shops around.

After a few minutes inside I was so creeped out that I couldn't stand it anymore and went out in the front to look around. The yard was littered with random chunks of petrified wood, grass burrs, old cars/buses, handless (?!?) mannequins and other random junk. It was seriously something out of a horror flick. I started taking pictures of the yard because people just wouldn't believe me about this place when we told them about it. That was when I noticed that the woman was standing in the doorway of the house just watching me. I wasn't sure if she was going to charge me for taking pictures . . . or what exactly she had in mind. Luckily, my husband came outside shortly afterward and was ready to go - no petrified wood in hand, but both hands intact - I considered that a success! As we drove away the woman got in her car and drove off down a dusty dirt road and disappeared as quickly as she appeared.

THIS PLACE WAS SO WEIRD, but it is a must-see if you are ever visiting this part of the country!!! I don't ever want to come back here, but I'm so glad that we went solely for the storytelling aspect. Being a horror movie fan, I have to give this place 5 stars for the horror movie creep factor.

What a waste of gasoline pulling off the interstate. I had my doubts right away because of the pathetic homemade dinosaurs along the interstate. Pulled in anyway because we are rockhounds and never leave a stone unturned. After walking in where do I start? The prices are horrendous!! We are rockhounds are familiar with the industry. Their 50% off is a scam because they are 150-200% above what everone else is. The place is creepy and shows a least a decade of neglect. Quality of pieces is sub standard. Good quality pieces are polished not smoothed out and varnished over to giive the fake appearance of polishing.
There is competition in the area and in my opinion all of them blow this place away.

Hubby and I saw the weird Dinosaurs from the Road so of course we had to go check it out. The whole place has a creepy feel. We went in the little store and I kept feeling like someone was gonna come out with a chainsaw at any moment and attack us. The older lady working there sort of had a voodoo witchy vibe. There are lots of cool rocks in the store. We ended up getting a few postcards and feeding the ostrich's. Great little side stop if you like unusual stuff.

So I cannot judge the place as we could not get in. There’s a large sign in the door that said no big purses or bags allowed- you had to ring a doorbell to be allowed entrance. We ran twice- no one let us in. We were there within the posted hours. So hey you can if you wanna. After reading the reviews it’s probably best we didn’t get in. I do not like scared movies.

There are a few large dinosaur and concrete statues around Holbrook and many are in better shape. You can't get very close to most of these, either. But they are the most bizarre, with one dino eating a mannequin.
There are two ostrich, but they are predictably smelly and best left alone.
We stopped in the rock shop and bought a few pieces of petrified wood to take home. Probably not the best rock shop in town, but it was OK.
