The food is mom-and-pop fare; here you can choose from burgers, fries, donairs and a breakfast menu guaranteed to get your day started. Breakfasts are served all day and if you’re in the mood for some early morning food in the middle of the day, the huge omelettes they serve are the choice for you. A pit stop on Route 99 is geared to be a filling experience; the portions are large and the toppings are generous. Another menu option is the lasagna, a heaping serving of pasta with just the right amount of meat, sauce and cheese; it may seem an easy thing to accomplish, but it’s rarely done as well as at Route 99.
A Glance into Dick Clark’s Basement
Credit the folks at Route 99 for blending greasy spoon culture with the Greaser Era. The result is a blast-from-the-past experience accentuated by an American graffiti-style menu and interior décor that would be right at home in Dick Clark's basement. Album covers spanning the glory years of Elvis, the Big Bopper and Bill Haley adorn the walls, while an old-style traffic light and the wing of a post-war plane hang from the ceiling of the eatery. In short the whole interior resembles a truck stop without the 18-wheels taking up precious outdoor real estate.
