Seligman, AZ., is a classic Route 66-era town, located on one of the longest stretches of the orginal right-of-way of historic Route 66.  Naturally, when you travel Route 66, you'll be wanting to enjoy classic diner fare, and when you're in Seligman, you can't find better cuisine than at Roadkill Caf.

Photo:  Roadkill Caf offers fine, diner cuisine, and is a definite must-eat-at restaurant as you motor Historic Route 66, and visit Seligman, AZ.  Note the raven perched on the sign, which is a classic site in Seligman.  The restaurant was practically deserted on this mid Sunday morning.  Today is Sunday, May 04, 2014.

Photo:  After you leave I-40, and travel west on Historic Route 66, there are a series of signs, which convey a safety message in a very humorous fashion.  The signs are placed about 100 yards apart, and each contains part of the message, which is a poem, and rhymes, just like classic literature.  This series of signs really got me laughing, and it's located just outside of Seligman.  It reads as follows:  "If hugging on the highway... Is your sport... Trade in your car... For a davenport."  I laughed about that message all the way to Las Vegas!

Photo:  Roadkill Caf's dining room is spacious, rustic and very comfortable.  Note the "roadhouse" decor.

Photo:  I love the "rustic names" of the menu choices.  This is a portion of the breakfast menu highlighting my choice of breakfast today:  "Guess that Mess," which is Roadkill Caf's famous skillet, and signature breakfast dish.

Photo:  I could not resist snapping this classic photo, which includes the classic menu, coffee, and artfully stacked creamer.

Photo:  Roadkill Caf has a full-service bar, a semi-private dining room, and a gift shop, located next to the dining room.  Naturally, the gift shop offers lots of Route 66 souvenieers and other "roadie" memorabilia.

Photo:  What could be more classic than mounted animal trophies and a Route 66 neon clock?

Photo:  Roadkill Caf's kitchen is open, and very visible as you walk in from the spacious parking lot.

Photo:  Such a slow, lazy Sunday morning!  As my breakfast is being prepared, the staff just stood around, chit-chatting, and not doing much of anything.  There wasn't any need to sweep the floors or bus the tables, as the dining room was squeaky clean.  

Photo:  My friendly server, Kendra, brings out my "Guess that Mess" breakfast, along with my order of toast.  More on the breakfast in a later photo.

Photo:  Oh yes, I know what my "mess" is, as friendly Kendra snaps my photo.  Roadkill Caf features classic, "roadie" Route 66 cuisine, which I absolutely love!

Photo:  My breakfast of "Guess that Mess."  It's not a "mess," as it's absolutely delicious!  The "mess"  is served in an iron skillet and starts with a base of home fries, with sausage, two eggs cooked the way to specify - over easy, in my case - and topped with sausage gravy.  Of course the meal includes your choice of toast, in my case, as always, sourdough.  Before placing my breakfast on the table, Kendra asked me if I wanted a side of gravy, at no extra charge, and I said "Heck yes!"  Folks, that's service!

It's classic, it's chintzy, but the food is good, there is plenty of it, the staff is friendly, and the atmosphere is priceless. Roadkill Caf is a must-visit when you're motoring Route 66, and visiting Seligman, AZ.  Oh yes, as a matter of fact, if you love mainline railroading, Seligman is a railfan's paradise.  Click on the hyperlink for a visit to raifanning in the Seligman area.
