It is what it is. If you're driving past you may as well stop. I only had a coffee which wasn't particularly nice, but hey - you may as well go. It's cool inside.

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
