This cute spot was recommended in a guide book so we made a special detour off Route 40 for lunch on the way from the Grand Canyon back to Las Vegas. They have a large outdoor dining area with a huge half-barrel type grill they were firing up for some sort of barbeque. We were too early for that, so we dined inside, among lots of Route 66 memorabilia and old gas station pumps, cart parts, etc. Great oldies music set the mood for a fun lunch.
We were disappointed that the burgers only came in 1/2 lb size and the kid burgers were only 20 cents less that the adult burgers. My daughter and I split one and could barely finish it. I was disappointed in the quality of the meat which was full of gristle and quite tough. The curly fries and onion rings were excellent, however.
The kids wanted ice cream off the kids menu and went to the counter to order it. Although they asked for the kids size scoop in a cup, rather than a cone, we were charged for a waffle cone! The lame excuse from the server was that in order to have ice cream in a cup, you have to have the larger scoop!
We felt taken advantage of by this restaurant with it's high tourist prices ($7 for onion rings?). Also, the town has very high taxes, over 10% on restaurant dining. I understand they have a limited tourist season, but I am sorry we stopped there. $45 for lunch for three burgers, one soda, onion rings and ice cream was more than we enjoyed spending considering the service and food quality.
