We were hungry. And it was a good stop. I ordered 21shrimp basket and an iced tea. We had just sat down to eat when one of the cooks came out and told me 'we have 2 tour buses coming in'. And they started pouring...More

I've actually never seen the film that this cafe owes its name to. I came here as an interesting Route 66 attraction and lunch stop. Very quiet the day I visited. Service was friendly and relatively quick. I had the buffalo burger, which was simple...More

This is just one of those places that you collect in your memory book as you travel the Route. During my visit, the cafe was crowded with a bus tour full of overseas tourists caught up on historic Route 66. I marked this off my...More
