Great food and great atmosphere. The staff is prompt and friendly. We were served by Taylor and he was great. I got biscuits and gravy, and my daughter got the club sandwich. She liked hers as much as I liked mine. Would definitely recommend.

Ordered the chili size, I liked it. My grandparents ordered burgers but said they weren't very flavorful, like the meat needed seasoning.

We stopped in for a quick dinner order of sandwiches. We were surprised how long it took to be served. There were only 2 tables. Also, I started with water and would have ordered a beer had the server come and even asked. I would probably try the breakfast but nothing other than that.

We checked into the Hot Rod on our way cross country because it was listed as pet friendly for lunch and because it served breakfast all day. It took FOREVER to get our simple egg dishes out and the waiter acted as if he had better things on his mind. I strolled through the interior while my husband pet-sat and... More

Stopped in for lunch today and had the all you can eat fish fry. It was surely more then I could eat. Large portions and reasonable prices. Great food and pleasant atmosphere. We'll be back.

We were headed to the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas for the day when we decided to stop here for breakfast. Hot Rod Cafe is located at the end of a strip mall. The outside looks like a typical strip mall. Inside, the restaurant is filled with hot rod car related items everywhere. Very cool. There was a bunch of... More

I have eaten here several times and have always been treated with respect and kindness. There food is excellant and where there is a option like instead of a full order of fries they ask you if you would like to split it with onion rings. I would skip the Mr D,s restaurant in town because of their rip off... More
