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

I was here for a late dinner. This is on the old route 66, and at least inside the diner you get that old-time feeling, or at least what as a younger person you imagine that old-time feeling to be. Yes, the milkshakes are good, and the burgers are decent. I'd say go for the atmosphere.

The milkshakes here were wonderful as well as all of the food. The prices were good and the staff was excellent. We had a larger party and they got us seated, food ordered and then served quickly.

What a fun, interesting place at which to have a meal. Decor is from the 1960's, and food is good home cooked meals. The milk shakes are delicious! They have a great display of Pez dispensers.

Set in the 60s the interior is fun and the food is great! They don't have a large menu but you are bound to find something you like and the milk shakes are superb!

The staff is very friendly and will customise anything you order. They still use real powdered malt, instead of the tasteless malt syrup.

Pros: Real powered malt instead of liquid, and wonderful staff

Cons: A little heavy into the 50s thing; but it was still fun.

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.

Pros: nostalgia, impeccable frozen concoctions

Cons: 50s theme maybe heavyhanded?

I have eaten there several times. The food is O.K. The place is clean. The help could use some training and it isn't a 5 star restraunt.

66 Diner has always had the greatest shakes and malts. One burger, fries, and their large malt will be all you can handle. Next time; forget the burger and fries, and just enjoy the wonderful malt.

This is a fun place for a night out with friends, family, or even dates. The food is awesome and their milkshakes are unbeatable! They have so many flavors to choose from! The dcor is modeled after a fifties diner. There is a jukebox,
