Good old fashioned meals in a cozy place. It's a blast from the past. Friendly staff. My Father used to frequent Emma Jean's when passed through on his truck route. He would rave about their food. He wan't wrong. :)

I have been here once and taken out for work party lunches numerous times. I first heard about this place on Diners Drive in's and Dives! Food is good quality and big portions. The atmosphere is loud and too crowded for my tastes, but you have to experience it once. I only got one re-fill of coffee and I was... More

Historic, friendly diner on Route 66. Burgers, breakfast and the pies! This isn't a place for real healthy eating- this is classic American Roadtrip food, burgers, fries, shakes and fries! Had a BLT and a slice of cherry pie- the best! Clean bathroom- limited seating but a great counter and friendly service! Check the hours and make it a stop... More

We ate here our next to last day in Victorville and wish we would've found this place sooner. Sitting at the counter allowed us to watch Brian work the grill. I can't count the number of times we looked at each other as they plated various meals and said "did you see that?". We were having a late lunch and... More

I ate lunch here with some co-workers while on travel. We ate at the counter, and Shawna, the co-owner, was our waitress. She chatted with us throughout lunch and even brought out a sample of a homemade butter bean and ham soup to try. I had the Brian Burger and it was one of the best burgers that I have... More

We were driving from Northern California to Palm Desert and looked at the Triple D website to see if there was anything along the way. I checked out Emma Jean's there and then on Tripadvisor, and we were on our way. What a sweet, wonderful diner on historic route 66. Luckily, I had read a great review of their fried... More

We originally found this place after watching diners drive ins & dives. The food is amazing. Great atmosphere. The owner & his wife are very friendly & funny too. The place is very Small. Maybe only about 30 seats. Cash only. Totally worth the drive

We were driving from San Diego to Las Vegas and looking for a place to eat lunch. My wife checked Trip Advisor on her Ipad and found this gem. I'm so glad we stopped. So far on our trip it was the best food and probably the least expensive. I highly recommend.

We stopped here on the way to Vegas from San Diego. Good place to stretch legs, take a toilet break and grab a burger and shake which are absolutely delicious.
