Established in 1939 by Roy Rieves on 6 ½ city lots acquired for $100 and $5 worth of rock excavated from construction of Route 66 Highway. Operated by various proprietors over the years, the Rock has served as Greyhound Bus Stop, congregation spot for WWII soldiers going to war and returning home to their wives and girlfriends, a youngsters’ hangout rocking to the juke box, family vacation stop, and a message center for truckers with notes called in and pinned to the wall waiting for their arrival. The Rock Café is now owned by Dawn Welch and serves a menu of modern and nostalgic foods. The Rock Café is host to a variety of events and guests from all over the world. Definitely a “must see” for the Route 66 traveler.
P.S. Don’t miss the bathroom walls featuring signatures of guests from all over the world (add your own if desired) and including cartoons by Pixar Movies artist drawn during his visit researching their soon to be released Route 66 animation “Cars”.
