My husband and I waited in line for the restaurant to open. Worth the wait. They have a gluten free menu. Sandwiches were lovely. Waitresses were very friendly. Memorabilia was very very interesting. Would really recommend this restaurant.

Great place to take a step back to Route 66 and have a coke and relax. They have hamburgers, cokes and beer.
