66 Diner and Wall o' Signs

Great collection of memorabilia relating to the Mother Road. Of course I refer to the famous Route 66.

Route 66 Diner

Interesting bit of the 1940s-1950s diner architecture with glass brick, chrome, and neon. Food and service were excellent on my visit. The chocolate malts are everything Tom Snyder says!
