Peggy Sue's 50's Diner
35654 Yermo Road,
If you're driving out to Las Vegas along Interstate 15, and you want a bite to eat, or to simply reminisce about Elvis, pull off at Ghost Town Road near Yermo for Peggy Sue's 50s Diner. Peggy Sue's is a very tasty diner decked out all fifties style. The original roadside diner was built in 1954, but the current owners, Peggy Sue and her husband Champ reopened it in 1987. Peggy Sue worked in the movies while Champ was formerly employed at Knott's Berry Farm. In addition to dishing out great meals, they showcase their collection of movie memorabilia.
Upon entering the diner, you are greeted by Betty Boop. To your left is a gift shop with all sorts of kitschy items and to the right is the restaurant which is covered in pictures, statues, and other things from the fifties. Menu items include the King Kong Monster Burger, the Marlon Brando Mushroom Cheeseburger, the Buddy Holly Bacon Cheeseburger, and the Frankie Avalon Philly Steak Sandwich. Other menu items are named after Tina Turner, Richard Nixon, Chubby Checker, the Big Bopper, James Dean, etc.
There's also an ice cream parlor, a pizza parlor, and their pun titled Diner-saur Park! The Diner-saur Park has all sorts of giant metal dinosaurs surrounded by ponds, trees, bridges, decks, etc. A giant King Kong statue also lives in the park.
The restaurant is fairly cheap and well worth the stop, if only to look around and take a short break in the free Diner-saur Park.
Additionally California has other giant Metal Dinosaurs roaming its lands.
