Route 66 offers opening week specials

Posted By on Tue, Aug 28, 2012 at 3:30 PM


Route 66 Diner held its grand opening Monday at 7710 Cantrell Road (former home of Burger Mama's). All this week, the 50's-themed diner offers fifty-cent hot wings and free soft-serve ice cream. Owner Jason Holt has spent twenty years working in chain restaurants and hopes to make Route 66 a franchise. The 50's-themed restaurant has a soda bar and soon, it will have a jukebox and blue plate specials offering "all the classics like meatloaf, liver and onions and chicken-fried steak," Holt said. There's also a Diamond Bear root beer float on the menu. Currently Route 66 only serves lunch and dinner, but over the next few months, Holt plans to begin serving breakfast as well. The place is kid-friendly and alcohol-free. Credit cards are welcome, and a round meal will cost you $10 or less. Hours are 6 10:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Mon.-Thurs., 10:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Fri.-Sat., closed on Sunday. Once breakfast begins, they plan to open at 6 a.m. Call (501) 223-3366 for more info.

    Andrew Rogerson, the new chancellor at UA Little Rock, has decided to study the cost of starting a major college football team on campus (plus a marching band). Technically, it would be a revival of football, dropped more than 60 years ago when the school was a junior college.

    If you follow the logic of Jason Rapert and his supporters, God is very pleased so many have donated money to rebuild a giant stone slab with some rules on it. A few minutes on Rapert's Facebook page (if he hasn't blocked you yet) also shows his supporters believe that Jesus wants us to lock up more people in prison, close our borders to those in need and let poor Americans fend for themselves for food and health care.
