The 66 Diner has good food and a great nostalgic family atmosphere. It is also very busy. Avoid going there during prime time at all costs! We waited for over forty minutes for our food and had to finally leave to catch a show. We were continually told it would be out in ""two minutes,"" which quickly turned into forty.

One day I went into 66 Diner with the intention of, in my own words, 'eating light' (my appetite was much more voracious back then). I ordered a root beer float and an 'appetizer' of chili cheese fries. All dreams of a light lunch obliterated, I ended up so full the trek back down to TVI was truly tortuous, and the leftover fries I stuffed in my bag produced conspicuous smells in my sociology class. Even so, the experience ranks as one of my favorites: I remember looking with moist eyes and a stunned brain upon that exceptional float, as tall as a toddler and all but filled with ice cream, topped with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry, more 50s than the 50s itself, utterly gorgeous and irresistible. The fries, which came later, were no less enthralling-a huge (wasn't this supposed to be an appetizer?) plate of crisp golden-brown fries smothered in Texas chili that lived up to all the expectations a Missouri-raised girl with a Southern-fried mother could expect to have, and topped with wonderfully bright orange cheese. It was over a year and a half ago and I can still remember the taste of it. In short, I love this place. It doesn't just recall the Route 66 diners it aspires to emulate, it recreates them, and lives up to the fine traditions of American roadside diner food.
