The Ariston is a Route 66 and American institution. Cafes like this are rarely seen today in larger cities. The warmth of the service, the wholesome goodness of the great American standards on their fairly large menu and the comfortable atmosphere are reasons why this great cafe has stood the test of time for over 80 years. The Ariston was recently inducted into the Restaurant Hall Of Fame not just for it's great longevity (it is the longest operating restaurant on Route 66 known) but for excellent food, service and value. Whether you are a roadster stopping in for a quick cheeseburger or you are a local with a large wedding reception, the Ariston will forever be there for you.
Pros: Great burgers, steaks, omelettes and Mexican food.
Cons: It's not in my town.
