Whether you like your Burger traditional or with a southwestern flare, the Owl Café has something for every taste.
What can I say about this restaurant! When you first go in...it is totally adorable! But then you sit either at the bar or in a cool booth, pick out songs to play on the juke box, and soak in the atmosphere. We were so lucky...We got Chris as our waitress, she was wonderful! My daughter was trying to collect charms for a vacation bracelet that she was making, but since they did not have any charms to sell Chris gave my daughter her personal owl earrings to make into charms! It is not often that people give so freely to others. I told the owner that he had a wonderful employee in Chris, and he said that he had employees that had worked 18 years and longer for him. He said one employee has worked there for 22 years! I think that says A LOT about the staff, but also about the owners!!! Now, I haven't even said how WONDERFUL the food was...My oldest son (the food critic), ate his Chili Cheeseburger and Fries without speaking to anyone...because as he said "it was the best burger he had ever had in his whole life"! WOW! That was amazing! Don't forget to order a shake- you won't be sorry! This place is a definite stop if you are in for a great meal!
Love this place, such great memories having Chocolate Shakes with my Mom.
50's theme diner. Shakes, burgers, medium-high price. Great service
Great service, food and drinks were superb.
Perfectly done! The food was excellent and it's a landmark for a reason. Both bathrooms have baby changing tables (which was clutch for us when our baby needed to be changed), and the diner rocks the Route 66 historic landmark trail perfectly. The decor, the 50's diner atmosphere, the food...all of it is worth the trip
So much fun, girls and I had shakes and burgers and listened to music. The staff was so friendly, even my 5 yr old kept saying how nice everyone is. Open until 10pm which makes them the only thing with eating after 8pm.
Loved this diner. Old school and fantastic food and service.
Fun milkshake stop
Cute little diner with good food and a variety of milk shakes and desserts. The Chile cheeseburger was awesome. Nice atmosphere, reasonable prices, and a fun spot to hit, especially for Breaking Bad fans.
Cute little diner with awesome milkshakes. Bacon cheese fries, onion loaf and the bacon wrapped dog were delicious.
