After our visit to Bearizona we drove into downtown Williams, AZ. Twisters 50's diner is like walking back into time. The place was like the diner in "Happy Days". The menu was comfort food, burgers, fries, what you would expect to eat at a 50's diner. Handmade milkshakes, malts and the banana split was big enough for 3 people. The... More

We stopped here for late burgers & ice cream while in Williams. The decor could not have been more authentic - we really loved that. And how much can you say about ice cream & burgers except that they were good too. The best part was how courteous the staff was even though it was after closing time till we... More

We were hungry after a trip to Bearizona and decided to stop on Route 66, we picked Twisters.The food was good, everyone enjoyed what they ordered. There was only one waitress and one cook, but our food still came out surprisingly fast! The cream soda that they make is delicious. The kids really liked the "old time vibe".

Loved the decor and old time diner feel of the place. I ordered one of their chili burgers and was so disappointed!!!! They use frozen hamburgers and the chili was definitely from a can and heated up. ! I should have asked before I ordered it but I didn't. I would have expected a place like this to use fresh...

Great for burgers and fries, The chocolate sodas were good too. We like the funny books on the tables to read while we waited for our meals.

Was there for some milkshakes. Had about 3 teenagers running it and service was poor at best. Milkshakes were not anything special either.

Fun 50s style diner. Basic diner food, but tasty. The catfish sandwich is great. Everything is made fresh, right in front of you. Delicious shakes. And a super fun staff.

Not a big menu selection. Prices and quantity were not a good value. Tasted okay. Wished we had went to another restaurant.
