I thought my experience driving Route 66 would be complete from the nostalgia and history of the road itself, but of course, no true Route 66 experience would be complete without making some notable stops along the way. One can say, it's "necessary" to note such landmarks as Cadillac Ranch (Amarillo,TX), The Malt Shop (Albuquerque,NM), Cyrus Avery Bridge (Tulsa,OK), or the iconic scenery of Selegman and Winslow, AZ, but one other stop one must mark on their map is the Ugly Crust Pie-Midpoint Cafe, in Adrian, Texas. Not only is this the true "midpoint" of the "Mother-road" drive, but it makes your travel through there even more memorable. Being from the South, we know our pies, and where the best of the best bakeries are--THIS IS IT! Although the cafe itself is very quaint, serving up the traditional 50s-style hamburger "hop" notables, and contains a few pieces of memorabilia you can take with you, it really makes it's "mark" with pies like no other! It is difficult to pick a favorite, as you will find, they are all top-notch. My recommendation, have each person in your group pick a different pie, then have a round-table feast of epicurean delight. This stop will definitely keep you reminiscing for years to come!
