After you visit our famed London Bridge – really, the bridge was built in the 1830s and once spanned the River Thames in London, England. It was dismantled in 1967 and relocated to Arizona – roll on northeast on McCulloch Blvd, just past the roundabout to visit one of our smallest but mightiest diners.

We liked that you could have breakfast lunch or dinner any time of day. We chose lunch at dinner time. Food was okay but the breakfast plates looked more inviting. Service was very good.

I am sure that the owner would be the one to talk to. Or maybe the manager. I know they have a shelf not far from the cashier that sells suveniers,candles,coffee mugs etc.
