Route 66 Dining

Road trip season is right around the corner. With school out of session and warmer weather coming down the pike, families everywhere are starting to plan their trips to new destinations, both nearby and far-off. Of all the classic trips out there, is there really any that can beat the truest classic – the Route 66 trip? If you want to take on part of this epic byway this summer, make sure you ink a few of these fabulous food stops into your itinerary. After all, what’s a road trip without delicious, greasy dive food and unusual bites along the way?

Le Roy’s Highland Restaurant

This stop in Monrovia, CA has been serving more food than you could (or should) possible eat in one sitting – especially when you’re getting back into a car for who knows how many hours – but their delicious take on everything from burgers with pastrami to breakfast burritos featuring tots is a must-stop.

Westside Lilo’s Café

Westside Lilo’s and their ginormous cinnamon rolls of deliciousness were featured on Diner’s, Drive-Ins, and Dives so you know there’s some goodness and grease awaiting you behind the doors of this Seligman, AZ stop. It’s a diner that thrives on serving the classic things you expect from diners plus a few German specialties (go for the schnitzel, you won’t regret it!). Enjoy a mug of coffee in a classic Route 66 mug to get the caffeine kick you need to make it through the next leg of your trip without falling asleep at the wheel!

Donut Drive-In

While you’re passing through St. Louis, the Donut Drive-In is a great morning stop (or any time of day stop, really. Who doesn’t want a donut for lunch or dinner? Plus, everyone knows road trip time is different than regular time). With sugar sweet confections and delicious coffee concoctions to accompany them, the Donut Drive-In offers a unique cash-only, grab-n-go method that’s perfect for fueling up without missing a beat on your way to your next destination.

Waylan’s Ku-Ku Burger

If this one sounds a little familiar, that’s probably because it used to be all over the place. Now, the only remaining location can be found right along the side of Route 66 in Miami, OK (not FL!) and is a great place to go to grab tots with jack cheese and green onions or a simple cheeseburger that will fuel you up for the miles ahead.

Midpoint Café and Gift Shop

No matter how much of the highway you’re tackling this summer, the Midpoint Café in Adrian, TX is a must-stop for one very simple reason – it’s the halfway point along Route 66. Grab what’s boasted as the best burger along the historic highway and indulge yourself in one of their signature Ugly Pies.
