$11 for $25 Worth of American Food
The menu includes buttermilk pecan pancakes with sliced bananas, caramel sauce, two eggs, and sausage ($5.99), third-pound Angus burgers with cheddar cheese ($4.99), baskets of beer-battered fish fillets with tartar sauce and fries ($5.49), and hand-dipped milk shakes ($2.99).
Constructed 80 years ago on a familiar stretch of Route 66, the building that houses Tubby's Diner has also held a pool hall, a gas station, and a hotel. Owner Jason Russell recently remodeled it, though, and now visitors can dine on classic American food in a revamped setting with 1950's-style booths.
In the morning, chefs flip pecan pancakes and douse hand-breaded steaks with sausage gravy. Later in the day, diners sink teeth into open-faced roast beef sandwiches or filets of beer-battered fish, washing it all back with sips of hand-dipped milk shakes.
