This was absolutely the worst meal we have had in a long, long time. Mexican food? The rice was a scoop of gummy left overs, the refried beans had definitely seen their better days many days ago, the chili relleno was tougher than boot leather and no taste. The beer was flat and warm. This was very disappointing because we... More

This funky place (with antique decorations and a gift shop) is Perfect at What They Do; if someone goes here expecting Fine Dining they likely will be disappointed, whereas if someone goes here looking for excellent Mexican Food served in a fun low-key atmosphere, they likely will give this place 5 out of 5 stars, as I do. We had... More

This was a gem of a restaurant. The portions were ample, the menu was extensive, and the staff was very accommodating. Loved the adjoining gift shop with all the Route 66 items, and there was a huge bar in the back of the restaurant. Nice spot to visit.

... and reasonable prices characterize this Santa Rosa institution. Service can be a little slow during the lunch rush, but that's not because anyone is slacking off.

This restaurant offers a friendly, nostalgic atmosphere with tasty food! The retried beans and rice are great! Our waitress was fun and professional. There is a shop incorporated within the establishment which offers Historic Route 66 reproduction items for sale.
