This is a great little cafe on Route 66. They actually have oysters, however just about anything is good. Since we were a bit early for lunch, I had their breakfast and it was quite good. Our friends had soup and sandwich, which they also said were quite good. Nice atmosphere and friendly service. Will be back.

The restaurant is a piece of history on the historic Route 66. It is also a great place for breakfast. A flare of Mexican with Huevos Rancheros and Chorizo...my wife was a fan. I enjoyed the more traditional two eggs over easy with the homemade potatoes...yum! We had quick and friendly service. The locals were coming in at a good... More

I haven't been here in years, but they have truly upgraded the place. They oysters were good. Really liked the Peel n eat Shrimp. The crab cakes were good but not our favorite. Overall a great visit.

Haven't been to this establishment since 2008, decided to give it try since it was advertising a new manager. Jessica is wonderful and the food is great and the beer is cold, what more could you ask for.

The reviews looked good so we gave it a try. It's fairly easy to find, but to get in you can't enter from 6th Street. You have to turn down S Jefferson and then turn in. This is kind of a mid-level restaurant, along the lines of Saltgrass but not as big. They have seafood and steaks. Oysters (my favorite)... More

We decided to try it now that they are open for supper. I had the seafood trio and the catfish was actually watery like they were reheated from frozen but not quite all the way. The hush puppies were raw inside and the shrimp were grainy. The room was somewhere around 62 degrees so my wife had to wear a... More

This Iconic location on historic 6 th street in Amarillo has been around forever. Only recently have new owners cleaned it up and created a smoke free environment. The atmosphere is comfortable with a full bar. The Huevos Rancheros are good for Breakfast. You can't go wrong with a Hamburger or the Steak Salad. The wait staff are friendly and... More

We had the sampler platter of fried pickles, mushrooms and onions with a couple $1 happy hour margaritas. No too much batter on the fried stuff and ranch dressing! Yum. Then Border Chicken and Fried fresh... More

Met a group here for lunch as they neared completion of a cross country bke ride, very good service and very good food. Sat with a group of 7 for lunch and were in and out in less than an hour. Will stop again next time I am in the area

Worst . Meal. Ever. Sold 6 mos ago no longer the diner that was there for 60 years. About 4 burgers & a few omelettes on menu. Took off most all the diner food.
