Williams is a tourist town, typically overpriced with quality running the scale from great to poor. The pricing here is typical of the town, but I tried the catfish, and it was very good. This is a state that is hard to find catfish. The menu is limited, yet at the same time, it has things that are unexpected, like the catfish, and the fried zucchini, and the bison burger. I plan to go back and try that. It is also filled with 66 memorabilia. Looks like a 50's soda shop. If you are going to eat in Williams, this is a good place to stop.

Needed to find a place for lunch. I thought it was a bit pricey. The food was ok and the service was good.

This is an interesting place. I missed it on prior trips because the outside is not painted brightly and looks a bit aged. Go past that and go inside and you will see a bright, 50's style diner/ice cream/soda fountain, gift shop, and bar past the shop. All the tables and chairs are Coca-Cola with some old kids toys hanging from the ceiling. The menu is pretty straightforward with burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, and lots of milkshakes, sodas, flavorings, etc. I had a La Bamba (cheeseburger with grilled green chile), shoestring fries, and a cherry phosphate. The burger is a frozen patty and is therefore just a burger and nothing magic, but the meal was pretty good overall. It was also interesting in that it had a full bar available to the diner without having to go into the bar. The price was much better than the other places selling burgers down the street for much more money. Good mix of tourists and locals. Friendly servers. Just wish I could have come back later for a shake as they looked really good (with maybe a shot of something in it).

When we last visited Arizona in 2010, we stumbled upon the nostalgic, lovely little town of Williams on our way back from a long day at the Grand Canyon. And along the stretch of Historic Route 66 that goes through Williams was this cool-looking vintage-style soda fountain. But to our dismay back in 2010, it was closed for the day when we got there after 8:00 at night.

So for this vacation to Arizona and the Grand Canyon, we made a point of stopping while they were open! It's very Johnny Rockets-like on the inside, and like Johnny Rockets, you can order a flavored glass of Coke. I ordered a cherry Coke and it was delicious (and the free refill was delicious, too). I ordered the Big Bopper double cheeseburger and it was tasty and filling. My wife ordered the Route 66 regular burger while our kids ordered the McQueen and Luigi from the very reasonably-priced kids menu.

We loved the late 50s/early 60s vibe to this place. My wife bought a Route 66 souvenir T-shirt at the small gift shop area inside the shop. Glad we visited.
