The Rock Cafe
Built in 1936, the Rock Cafe in Stroud has been a popular Route 66 attraction for over 80 years. Destroyed by fire in 2008, the Rock Cafe was renovated and re-opened in 2009. Unique menu items such as the world-famous alligator burger, reuben sandwich and jagerschnitzel, a German dish, keep customers coming back. Open seven days a week, this is a great place to stop for a snack or meal while traveling along Route 66.
Over the years, the Rock Cafe has served many celebrities, including Led Zeppelin front man Robert Plant, "Simpsons" creator Matt Groening and former "Today" host Bryant Gumbel. Dawn Welch has owned the Rock Cafe on Route 66 since 1993, and she was the inspiration for the Sally Carrera character in the 2006 animated Pixar film "Cars."
