Great place to eat. Reasonable prices. Pot Roast skillet Great! Looks like a dive when you drive up but not at all. Inside great atmosphere.

Stopped her for a meal and wasn't sure what to expect but it was wonderful. A lovely little shop for souvenirs on site as well. Restaurant was clean and had a great feel to it. Food was excellent and service prompt and friendly- would highly recommend.

My son and I stopped for a quick bite to eat and a break from the scorching heat. It was 113F when we got out of the car! The food was great and the service prompt. My son had the cinnamon roll French toast - it was above average but not as good as a place we stopped the week... More

Old school since 1978. We just happened to pull over in Needles to use the restroom and I remember reading about this restaurant. It was time to eat anyways so why not stop and eat here. We ordered an omelet to share and my teen girls ordered the kids Grilled Cheese plate. My teen girl loves grilled cheese sandwiches, but... More

Lunch was great! We had the garden burger and the tri tip sandwich - both were very good. The service was efficient and the restaurant itself was truly Route 66. A must when driving Route 66 or even passing through!

It's a diner, but the food is great, the service reasonable, and the food predictably American. I'd take the authentic Route 66-ness of this place over Juicy's any day, unless you're getting the freebie through Best Western and it matters.

I stopped off here with my wife for breakfast. I had the omelette special and my wife had bacon and eggs. This was the best tasting omelette I have ever tasted, it had a bit of everything in it. The service was really good and they kept my coffee topped up. Certainly good value for money.

Stopped for lunch after reading reviews here. Rachel was our server & she was amazing - so kind, enthusiastic & genuine. As she rattled off several items on the menu, I kept hearing pot roast this & that. The pot roast was delicious with & without the gravy. The green beans were real, tasty & seasoned perfectly! Very enjoyable!! We... More
