About
The Rock Cafe has been located on Route 66 in Stroud, OK for more then 70 years. The diner still has its original grill. The current owner was used as inspiration for the character "Sally" in the Pixar/Disney film Cars. The cafe has been in many publications and television programs including Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. We are open 7 days a week 7am until 8pm.

Very creative structure in a good spot driving west. Inside the coffee is good and they had good looking fresh pumpkin pie which we were not hungry enough to try. Rest rooms and cafe located next to an interesting memorial to local service people.

Yes, we got in to eat there. Very charming. But it wasn't for a meeting, for a family meal. Very nice, comfortable, reasonable and tasty.
