Stepped in to a time machine this morning and went back to memories of the old Route 66. The Vagabond has a big celebration banner stating 1966-2016...50 YEARS! And I swear it is still 1966 in a good way. Friendly service with old fashioned greasy spoon goodness. Go there hungry, leave very full. The decor is still stuck a few... More

The egg dishes and all the breakfast sides are good. They just celebrated their 50th anniversary, so they must be doing something right! Waitress had great sense of humor. Fun place to come with a group of friends.

I read about the Belgian waffles in other reviews. Well, I have never had one I'd rave about but figured I might as well see what the fuss was about. It was AWESOME! Crisp on the outside, creamy in the inside, with melted butter (how else will it get in all the nooks?! - what are other places thinking if... More

We stayed at the Vagabond Inn the previous night so we decided to have a hot breakfast here. I'm so glad we did! Our waitress Sharon was so sweet and funny. She took our order in a timely manner and accurately. The food didn't take long to get to us and our glasses and mugs were kept full. I ordered... More
