On our way to Sedona, we were caught in some traffic so because no one likes a hangry Casey, we stopped in at the 50s Diner Backseat Bar. This is a seat yourself kinda place. In addition to the breakfast and lunch items, they also had malt shakes, floats and pie a la mode. We shared a steak and eggs which came with hashbrowns and rai ... read more

Cute tiny place off I-17 . Made 4 people with wildly different food interests very happy. Little cousins order a fish basket and a grilled cheese and cleaned their plates. I had the Betty Boop burger which was awesome. The two kids said they'd rate the place a 4. I lean toward 4.5 but we settled on 4 as a proper vote. Definitely wort ... read more

EXCELLENT restaurant with separate bar with fellow singing for entertainment that was very good and taking requests.

We really enjoy this diner especially when the horseshoe tournaments are being held. The bartendars and wait staff are very tentative and nice. Must say however that this weekend we were surprised when the restaurant closed at 8 and last call for alcohol was 9:30. There were several patrons still playing horseshoes and would have con ... read more

Hello, I would like to address a few folk's comments.  First, the Cordes Junction Motel, RV Park and 50s Diner Backseat Bar was owned by my wife and me from 2003 to June 2016.  Over those years, we dealt with many obstacles and setbacks.  Why? Cordes Junction is 30 miles from grocery stores to hardware/lumber store, yet I-17 has mill ... read more

Total throwback to the roadside 50's diner experince. This place has a separate bar in the back that looks like lots of fun and they have horshoe throwin' pits outside. Rose is an amazing waitress!! We watched her handle 6 tables with 20 people combined all by herself and she never dropped the ball. Whatever she's paid, isn't enough.
