I use to eat at Walan's 3-4 times a week when I attended NEO back in the mid 90's. Best hurger ever. I will make a special trip back to Miami one day just for a burger at Walan's.

KuKu is the best!!! i have been eating there with my family for manymany years and the food never changes!!! Now My husband and i who both grew up in Miami OK take our family there and they love it too! I definately recommend this to all 66 cruisers its a must to stop and try a kuku burger! Dont Just ask for a Burger, Ask for Waylans!


From sherry on 06/16/13

From James Moore on 01/04/13

I give Waylans KuKu the best rating nation wide, owner Gene Waylan is so friendly and knows how to run a drive-in. His daughter Gayle Waylan is managerand is very friendly as are all the waitresses at the KuKu and they serve some delicious foods, just to name a few are Waylans Giant KuKu burger-and Bar B-Q Brisket and Philly Steak Sandwich, Reuben Sandwich and many many other good foods Waylans KuKu is a must if you're hungry so try it and enjoy while the cars are passing on route 66.

My wife and I and another couple traveled from Indianapolis to Commerce, OK for the Mickey Mantle Classic and had the occasion to eat at KuKu in Miami pronounced we learned as Mia-ma. We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere and especially the fried Okra. It will certainly be a stop at the next years Classic.


From margeret samuels on 06/04/12

i was in there today around 6 or 7, and a sweet young lady got part of my order wrong, and her boss started yelling at her and CALLING HER STUPID. i loved the food, but WILL NOT give my business to people who treat their employees that badly. he needs to realize without his employees he cannot have a restaurant at all. maybe if treats his employees better they would would work harder and make less mistakes. shame on you mr. waylon. i will not be back

From Shelly A on 12/20/10

I grew up in Miami and everytime I go home, this is a staple... One visit I took my baby's babies there all 3 days I was in town... they got something different everytime but for me.. the single with cheese....mmmmmmmmm and when fried green tomatos are in season, you can bet my daughter is on notice to call me when they are advertised on board... in fact, drove up Friday and ate there Sunday!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE the flavors..


From Kelli and Tim on 12/19/10

So worth the drive! We keep coming back for the great food and awesome atmosphere!! P.S. love the fried pickles!
