Do you remember the last time you were headed out of a small town and just before you got to the city limits there was an old worn out sign that said “last gas for 100 miles - 3 miles ahead”? Then, sure enough, after a few short miles, you came across an old gas station with a nearby house that looked like it had been there longer than the road itself...If so, welcome to Fred’s One Stop!
Fred’s One Stop is absolutely the last place on your way out of town where you can fill-up with gas, check the oil and tires, or maybe pick up a soft drink and a snack to make your trip just a bit more pleasurable. If you’ve got time, and are so inclined, you might even spend a few minutes talking to Fred over a game of checkers about the latest news in town, like the cat that was stuck up a tree for so long that the local firemen had to actually rescue it. Or maybe just rest in the shade while the kids play a quick game of horseshoes. Make Fred’s the last place you stop before getting to wherever it is you’re going.

THE DESERT CAFÉ on ROUTE 66 - It was simply two lanes of concrete and blacktop connecting the Midwest and the West Coast but it became a cultural icon. Nothing brings back nostalgic All-American emotions of days gone by like the historic Route 66. Gas Stations, Motels and Eating Joints both utilitarian and whimsical competed for highway traveler’s attention and much needed dollars not realizing that they would create a legacy that would far outlive most of them.
Café eateries abounded - each with their own special cuisine hoping to provide a memorable taste to hungry travelers - memorable enough for them to stop in again...
