Retro style diner!
Happening Now! Right now the locals are talking about Route 66 Diner, where they eat a big, filling breakfast; drink rich, black coffee, while sitting in a comfortable, vintage atmosphere.
I should not share this, but my husband and I can eat at Route 66 Diner for breakfast for under $10! It is not because the food is inexpensive, but they serve such large sizes we share. The very first time we went we each ordered different breakfast selections. The waitress noticed that combining the items would equal one of their specials, the Triple XXX Breakfast Special. So we walked away with full bellies for under $10 and have been ordering the same way every time. And we always give our waitresses an extra tip for being so honest and making our experience special!
But enough about the money (sorry, I am extremely frugal)! Let’s discuss the food; the Triple XXX Breakfast Special! I am not sure where to start, but with my number one breakfast item, coffee. Their coffee is fresh brewed all day long and is rich and dark. The waitress sometimes leaves the coffee pot on our table as I drink cup after cup. My husband always orders the biscuits and gravy, and if I am quick enough, I can get a forkful or two. The biscuits are light and airy and the gravy is hearty, but not heavy. The rich flavor of sausage and pepper in the gravy enrich the meal. Not to be missed is their bacon perfectly cooked, toast smothered in butter and jelly, and eggs cooked any way we want. We always change how we order the eggs depending on our mood. The breakfast selection that I equal to their coffee is the fried hash browns. They are the best hash browns I have ever had! They come to the table hot off the skillet waiting to be mixed with a little bit of Heinz ketchup and eaten. Mix all these scrumptious breakfast items together, and they equal an unbelievable breakfast!
Route 66 Diner is the sister restaurant to Triple XXX Family Restaurant. Both restaurants feature the same, wonderful selections. They serve breakfast all day long along with burgers, salads and soups to customers who travel far and wide to eat in their vintage surroundings. Route 66 Diner is designed after the old gas station/diners found along Route 66 or any highway in that period. It is a laid back, welcoming environment.
