The food here is top notch. It is a small place not much to look at but serves great food at low prices. The wait staff are very attentive and friendly

The food is always pretty good, but the place is nothing fancy. We have eaten there several times. Will be going back.

Nothing to special here. A wide variety of good food in a typical friendly dinner setting. The staff is always friendly, happy, and ready to serve. We enjoy eating here any time we are in the area.

Friendly people with reasonably priced food. The biscuits and gravy are wonderful - you can actually find the sausage in the gravy!

My husband and I have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner at the 66. We've never had a bad meal. Friendly staff, fast service, good desserts including their milkshakes. Good home cooking at reasonable prices. Don't let the outward appearance scare you off!

Spent the night in Litchfield while traveling and found this place on TA. Jeanne, the waitress was very helpful and friendly. I had the fried pork tenderloin sandwich. Very large piece of pork on a good bun, with all the veggies. YUMMY. The waffle fries...More

Nice local cafe that sells down home cooking. This is where fellow coal miners meet usually once a month just to catch up on stories. Friendly atmosphere.

We had dinner here. Waitress was very friendly and helpful. My wife had the catfish and I had the Texas burger. Huge portions. I recommend the American fries. Fresh cut potatoes and ask for onions if you like. The hand breaded onion rings were cooked...More

I go here with the family whenever we're in the area. They do a great breakfast at a good price and the staff is the friendliest anywhere.

Was in the area exploring route 66 and stopped in here for lunch. Classic cafe/roadside diner with a large menu. Had a local favorite called the Horseshoe and it was excellent. If you stop in here, I recommend that you bring an appetite.
