Opened in 1939, the Rock Cafe in Stroud has been a popular Route 66 attraction for multiple generations. Despite a fire in 2008, this beloved eatery has maintained its historic rock walls, foundation and original grill since WWII. Travelers stop at this nostalgic destination on the National Register of Historic Places for unique menu items and rural Oklahoma hospitality. 

The diner's world-famous alligator burger, reuben sandwich and German jagerschnitzel are just a few of the plates that keep customers coming back. 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 cafe since 1993, and she was the inspiration for Sally Carrera in the 2006 animated Pixar film "Cars."
