Dell Rhea's Chicken Basket
"Get your chicks on Route 66" at one of the most unique restaurants the road has to offer. Its colorful history dates back to the early days of Route 66 when the restaurant also doubled as a Blue Bird Bus stop. The building's unique features include large bay windows that allowed diners to watch take offs and landing at the neighboring airport. In winter, the flat roof was flooded to provide an icy surface for skating exhibitions.
