    My husband and I are from Phila. Pa and we were visiting Williams last week. We stopped by to have breakfast and what a wonderful surprise we had. Your food was fantastic and also you have the best bacon that I ever tasted. Could you possibly send me the brand name of the bacon that you use in the restaurant? Keep up the good work.

    We remembered this place from our Route 66, Chicago to Santa Monica motorcycle trip in 2010. This time we took our Corvette on the trip. The breakfast we had then was very good. I made a special detour so we could stop there for breakfast again on our way to see the (closed) Grand Canyon. Our server was quite friendly and the breakfast was as good as we remembered. The “over-easy” eggs I had were just about the most perfectly cooked “over-easy” eggs I have ever had. If we ever are in that area again, I will make it a point to stop there again.

    On your banner it says the restaurant is open 6am to 9pm and a little further down it says the restaurant is open 7am to 2 pm….so which will it be in March when I come thru there?

      Thanks for the note. The banner was made when the restaurant originally re-opened. The hours changed and I did not change the banner. The hours in the post should be accurate. They are closed for the winter so I have not been able to check with Jeff on what the new hours will be in the spring. They will likely be the same.

    We stopped in last week for lunch and it was great. Love the atmosphere. It was great to give our kids, 10 & 7 a glimpse of how life “used to be”. Thanks for the memory 😉

    Goldies was awesome when the previous people ran it. Jeff’s place is a far cry from good. Unfriendly people, greasy food, and an extremely rude Jeff. We will not return nor recommend the

    This was the nastiest and dirtiest place I’ve ever eaten at.

    My family enjoyed a delicious breakfast for dinner at the Route 66 Diner. It’s the real deal! We had a wonderful conversation with our server who took great pride the City of Williams. The town was nostalgic! We’d recommend this cute
    little diner and we’ll definitely be back!

    The food was great but the service ruined the whole experience. The MANAGER WAS SO RUDE AND UNPLEASANT. She had no manners and this is why I would never come back to this place.

  11. Jim Kiel says:

    Since Jeff Pruett took over he has shown an extremely rude disposition. This in turn has a trickle down affect that leaves employees and customers with a very bad taste in their mouth. Ate here twice and until I finally decided that I will never again put up with the horrible management / owner attitudes.

    I remember eating here with my family on our cross-country family trip in 1984. It was Denny’s then. I also remember there being a plague of locusts, cicadas or something that summer. Any truth to that?

    Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed eating at your place. It was great, the food was fantastic and a lot of it. Also a word about Steven he was awesome, what a fine young man, as a former employer I understand how rare a person like Steven is. A person like that makes a business. Your place is top of the line is an A+ restaurant. When we are back in the area we will surly come in and enjoy another meal. Thanks again and say hi to Steven from Bob and Carol.
