This place has been our go-to place for years when in Needles, CA. You can't miss with their chicken fried steak and country gravy. The best coffee in the area. Truckers seem to like this place as well. An old restaurant with lots of eye candy and antiques adorning the walls and there is also a gift shop.

Well let's see . The service was great. It has pretty neat decor, all route 66 type stuff. The food was ok, not oh my God good , but ok. The prices were high. It was 33 dollars for lunch for 2. So I guess that's the long and the short of it.

This is a really good restaurant! There were three people in our group, and each of us really enjoyed our meals! The service was great, the food was fantastic and there are a ton of items on the menu. I would definitely go back to the restaurant when I am back in the area.

Great atmosphere and food. Serves breakfast all day; who doesn't love that?! They have funny books at every table, seat yourself. I've been here three times (every time I've been in the area) and it's never disappointed.
