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 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.

Was very impressed with the great tasting food. My husband had the Chili Relleno dinner and I had the French Dip. Both were excellent. The people working here were all very kind and attentive.

This restaurant is located on Old Route 66. It has a 1950 / 1960 look and feel. The staff is very service oriented and the food selections are various. The place was packed the night I was there with travelers and locals. Need I say more. You will enjoy and remember this place. It also has a nice gift shop.

Thank Bill H
