Visitor Tips and News About Delgadillo's Snow Cap Drive-In
Traveling through what I assumed was the section of RT-66 that was featured in the Pixar/Disney film Cars, I spotted a sign for the "Road Kill Cafe." When exiting I-40 in Seligman, I spotted the sign stating it was 2 miles on RT-66. After two miles, I wasn't even in the town yet. Once I entered, I spotted Snow Cap. With all the decor, it was hard to pass up this place. I had never heard of it, nor did I know (then) about the history of this roadside treasure.
There was no line, so I was able to order right away. I was curious about the "Dead Chicken" written outside, but I didn't ask, and instead ordered a cheeseburger with everything on it, as stated on the menu. I was asked if I would like mustard on the burger.... I'll not answer that so you can experience this. I was laughing very hard after walking away with my food. This place is great. This totally fits the epitome of what the best of Roadside America represents.[Scott S, 06/11/2012]
Definitely a trickster! Played a couple of tricks on us. Good soft serve cones. Malt was ok. Lots of stuff to see on this stop.[Tanya, 04/03/2012]
Much has been written about the fun and pranks at the Snow Cap, and it is still totally true. I just want to add my opinion of the food - specifically, the fish taco. It was the best one I've ever had anywhere! The salsa added to it made it perfect. My only regret is that I ordered just one. When I realized how good it was, a large group had arrived, and the line was too long. The ice cream was excellent, too![Riley Cooper, 08/24/2011]
My family and I live in Phoenix and have made the trip to the Snow Cap and Angel's barber shop at least twice a year for many years for lunch and a visit. We have had the honor of being squirted with mustard by Juan himself.
This last time after talking with John at the drive in he offered to take myself and my daughters for a ride in the Christmas tree car. It was a one car parade and generated much interest from the tour buses. We love Seligman and Route 66 and will continue our regular visits whenever possible. We wish health and happiness to the Delgadillos and the rest of Seligman.[Bill Cremean, 05/29/2010]
I remembered this town between Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon that had this crazy Latino guy when we drove by in 1987. Always cracking jokes.
I brought my family by in 2009, and I asked at the General Store about that crazy guy. The locals (2 out of pop of 467) said he passed away but his family still runs the place. We were in too much of a hurry to stop, but this town appears to be the original Radiator Springs from Pixar Cars, sure enough just past the "city" center we cruised by. It was just the building back then, but now it looks like it is overrun with craziness. Everybody should stop by and say hi.[Arthur, 07/03/2009]
