Authentic Chinese restaurant I go with about once a month with my friends in town. The owner does shots with us and makes us special dishes.

I rarely ever go to those kinds of places. So many restaurants are holes in the wall since they don't really have what it takes to please many people. If I ever don't want a meal from a well-established place, I often just cook my own meals.

I'm assuming you prefer going a three star michelin restaurant and I don't blame you for your preference. Except i don't have the budget for a 3 star michelin restaurant on a whim and I would probably need to save a few months worth of salary for me to get in a 3 star michelin restaurant. Yes, that extreme.

Used to be a 1930's holdover stopover for tourists along I-40 near a burg called Navajo, AZ. I found it by accident back in the mid-80's as a tour bus coach operator. We (2 drivers assigned to this job) had issues with toilet on board so pulled into this undersized roadside stop to let 44 riders stretch and take a potty break. It was a microcosm of the way small joints operated back in the day.

Its memory stuck with me over time and I went back there when possible while rolling thru Arizona as a commercial big rig operator enroute to LA during the early 1990's. Still had the ambience though the food prices were higher than 5 years' previous; no surprise.

Fast forward another few years as a tourist in a 4-wheeler much to my chagrin. It's a shame, progress had caught up to this oasis along the Interstate. It was now 1998. The restaurant from the past had been leveled by a D-9 Cat bulldozer and shoved off to the side in a small rubble of dirt, bricks, rusted aluminum bits, steel framing. The area had lost its soul as far as I was concerned. Food was OK but atmosphere was pedestrian, sterile, fitting homage designed to attract new travelers and entry into the new millennium. Boo hoo, that. Never went back.

When I see "hole in the wall" there's only one thing I can think of. Probably shouldn't say it here though.

That is absolutely nostalgic too bad that it lost it's authenticity what it was once. I haven't traveled along Route 66 but i'm pretty sure there are iconic restaurants there that could be checked out along the way. Just got plan accordingly for a long drive, preferably fall season since it will be cooler and the leaves color are changing so that will be a sight to see as well.

We get a lot of tourists, so there's a pretty wide variety of restaurants for just about every nationality of food but they all tend to be overcrowded and overpriced.

There's a little local pub I like in the rough part of town that's usually pretty empty if you go in at the right time. The owners seem to be able to recognize and recall details about everyone that's ever set foot in it, they make the best burgers in town and are about half the price of anywhere else.
