My husband & I had dinner outside. 50's...60's theme. The ice cream reminded me of ice cream parlors with seating inside & out. Definitely family friendly

On the eastern side of Williams, we have been to Twisters before. The food was as good as we remembered. My husband had the double cheeseburger "The Big Bopper" and I had La Bamba, which featured an Ortega chile. Our ice teas were served in huge tumblers with plenty of ice. The restrooms were clean. It was a good stop... More

Stopped at Twisters for an ice cream treat. It is definitely nostalgic with a black and white floor; coca cola decor and furnishings. There are three parts to twisters. One part is an old-fashioned diners; second section is a gift shop, and the third part a bar. Wait help was very friendly. I had a hot fudge sundae and my... More

Jason, the owner, gave us the red carpet treatment. We splurged with a root beer float, cherry soda, and hamburgers - all excellent. We enjoyed the "Green Stamps" sign, and the Route 66 diner decor. We played name-that-tune from the 50s and 60s. So much fun. You can't go wrong.

Place looks wonderfully quirky, and does exactly what most places fail to recognise: keep it simple! Great burger, fresh bun, high quality meat, quick, yum. But here's the real kicker: the fries! No clue what they did to get them this awesome, but I have yet to taste better ones. Standing ovation for the fries!!

This place is nothing special. It is not particularly nostalgic in appearance which you might expect from what is supposed to be the original Diner in Williams. The food was ok if a little basic with limited choices on the menu. The food was reasonably priced and portions were good. The service was a little slow with a lack of... More

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
