I found this link to the food network's show on diners along Route 66. It's an episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives that featured three restaurants along Route 66, from Arizona to Missouri.

It's gotta be different things for different people. I remember the first time I had my first adventure on the mother road it really resonated with me for some reason, and I had no idea why. I just found myself wanting to go back. Every time I found something new. From magazines to Michael Wallis book, I'd find myself wanting to go to those places.

Just got back from my first route 66 Trip of the season, and like always, route 66 never stays the same. It's always different. It's amazing that in the 20 plus year's ive been in love with the mother road how much of it has either died or revived. It always makes it interesting. It makes it worth seeing again and again.
I got into route 66 right around 1988. I read an article in a magazine that featured the partridge creek bridge with a tree growing out it and something struck me.… Continue
