Best about this place was the adjacent souvenir shop. Can find pretty much what you need here regarding Route 66 novelty items. Free WiFi. Also, lots of fun nostalgia items to see while you are waiting. People stop here from all over, so fun to interact with others. Friendly staff, food was average, but a bit messy where we sat....

Lots of memorabilia, good food, and nice gift shop. Family run. Very interesting. Don't let the word bar shy you away. Not like that.

This is an old fashioned route 66 diner/restaurant. They serve a wide variety of food to suit different tastes, from Mexican to burgers, salads to chicken sliders. Service was a little slow but they were very friendly and helpful. Lots of memorabilia from good old route 66 days and a gift shop too.

Great Service, Great Food. Fun place to eat. Family owned for years. You can read the family's story while you wait for your food. It's on the menu and it's a great read!

This is a small town Mexican grill, it's also is a Night club & a gift shop all rolled into one. Our desk clerk mentioned this place, we took her advise. I wouldn't go out of my way to come, but if in Santa Rosa this is a good place to eat. Family owned and the pride shows. Our server... More

This place is busy. Mexican not our cup of tea but what we had was OK. We felt a little expensive compared to many of the other places we have eaten at. Not to many choices of places to eat at in this town. If you like Mexican you will love it and the atmosphere. Staff friendly.

The wait to very long (so you can shop of course ) and getting food was slow, but the food we got was great. Service once it showed up was good and the young lady was very nice. If in town again I'll drop in for pie!

Stopped in on the way home to Alabama from Arizona. Had the enchiladas. One chicken one beef. The chicken was very good and tender. Place was packed. Took awhile to get order placed but that's ok considering how busy. Waiter was very friendly and did a good job.

Thank Katriena P
