“Mothers' day Treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

Today was the third time my wife and I have visited Route 66 and were still surprised by the quality of the food and, most of all, the excellent service. We were well looked after by Jo and Linda, who, although very busy as it was Mothers' Day, could not have been more helpful. Even Dez, who remembered us from a previous visit, came to greet us..................nice touch. Cannot praise the staff enough and the food is to die for. Many congratulations and thanks to everyone for making our lunch seem special. Everyone should eat at Route 66. We will certainly return.

“AMAZING FOOD AND PRICES”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

We originally ate here in 2012 and were amazed by the portion sizes and friendly staff. When i was recently back in the area I decided to take some friends to try out the Route 66 signature burger - a great value meal for only 8.95. Now when I say back in area I actually drove from Altea to get here (nearly 2 hours) so that should give you an idea of just how good the food is. Although under new owners the portion sizes have not gotten smaller nor have the prices increased and the new staff are just as friendly.

“Have a milkshake - worth it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

We've only ever had breakfast in here but have enjoyed it on a number of occasions - the milkshakes are well worth it. They're very thick and tasty with cream on top!! I'd like to see you drink more than one in a sitting!

The staff are friendly and the food was lovely; breakfast has always been very enjoyable, well worth a visit.

“Jdottie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

Have been to this restaurant four times and three times the food was excellent and freshly cooked. Sunday lunch was not so good though with pre-cooked tasteless roast potatoes and Yorkshire puds and undercooked, hard veg. That said, maybe it was just an off day so shall try again soon. The staff are very helpful, efficient and friendly and the place is spotless.

“Fourth fantastic time!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

This was our fourth visit to Route66 and as before it was excellent. As soon as we entered we were greeted and shown to a table. Our drinks order was taken as soon as we were seated. We were offered menus as well, but as two of our party were late we decided to wait a while. Once the rest of our party arrived we were given menus immediately. The food we ordered came as quickly as I would expect for freshly prepared items. All the food was to a very high standard.The service has always been both friendly and efficient. My only adverse comment is that the restaurant was very hot inside when the door was closed and as some people said there was a draft we had to roast. As we do live fairly locally we will be back for a return visit. It would have been 5 stars if there was an efficient temperature control system.
