We stayed in Cuba overnight whilst doing route 66 in September 2019. We went to Shellies for breakfast. Although I cannot remember what I had, I remember it was good! Good service too.

We stayed in Cuba on our Route 66 road trip. We went to Shellie’s based on its high ratings and we were not disappointed! Breakfast & our server were both excellent. Big portions, reasonable prices, great food & service. What more can you ask for?

Shellies was a fun lunch stop that was recommended to us at our Wagon Wheel Motel. He did not steer us wrong! Lunch was good with fast service. Interior décor was fun with Route 66!
