Mr D'z Route 66 diner and a Dream Machine Museum in Kingman Arizona
Updated: Oct 23
While there is an abundance of restaurants and eateries in Kingman, my favorite would have to be Mr D'z Route 66 diner. This 50s style diner was once popular all along Route 66, and stepping inside this Kingman diner feels like stepping back in time. The menu is in the shape of a record, which is a cute 1950s touch. The diner is so popular it was awarded the 2022 Travelers Choice award with Tripadvisor.com.
Hearty food such as meatloaf, chicken fried steak, ribs and coconut shrimp, spaghetti, fries, onion rings etc. are all delicious. There are vegetarian options available as well. Desserts are nostalgic as well, with banana splits and sundaes a favorite. I dined here with friends, and they enjoyed the banana peanut butter milk shake. The portions are large, reasonably priced and served quickly.
Inside dining options include booths, tables and chairs or seats at the counter. In warmer weather, outdoor seating where diners can watch the cars traversing route 66 can sit and eat.
There are several static cars outside with Route 66 logos that are popular selfie props for tourists.
Next door is the Dunton Motors the dream machines museum. This is a classic auto museum that buys and sells various collectable vehicles. I do not know much about cars, but these machines are worth a admiring look at. For a small donation, it is an awesome place for a quick visit either before or after dining at Mr. D’z. Just have a look at some of these beautiful cars.
From a Ford vehicle over 100 years old....
to more "modern" classics.
I can just see myself cruising along route 66 in one of these outstanding automobiles. Ah, maybe one day! In the meantime, I can just ogle and fantasize about the Dream Machines in the museum after enjoying the delicious meal at Mr. D'z right next door.
