Bars & Cafes
This casual, family-friendly spot is so well-known for its food and hospitality that it has been written up in the Houston (Texas) Chronicle. Steaks and slow-roasted prime rib are served by a friendly staff. Besides offering a good bet for Grade-A beef when you are in town, the menu includes chicken, ribs and seafood. A children's menu is also available. Rod's Special Margarita is the house specialty drink. Domino, the restaurant's bull mascot, is prevalent in the decor here, as are memorabilia and souvenirs from historic Route 66.
A slightly odd combination of traditional American fare and Asian dishes makes this the perfect place when you do not know what you want to eat. Breakfast is served until 11am, and then the lunch crowd comes in for sandwiches, soups, salads and house-specialty teriyaki dishes. The menu includes espressos and cappuccinos, sandwiches, teriyaki and sweet and sour chicken, Korean barbecue beef and frozen yogurt. A country coffee house decor includes straight-backed wooden chairs, a dining counter, cow skulls hanging from the columns and tons of Grand Canyon souvenirs for sale everywhere you look.
Located in Williams' oldest building, this Mexican cantina calls itself the town's funnest restaurant, and you may very well agree. Sonoran-style Mexican and Southwestern cuisine are served in the former "Cabinet Saloon," renowned for its gunfights and shady ladies. Many of the building's original architectural features remain, including the ceiling trim and hand-painted wainscoting. The building is directly across from the train depot in the downtown historic district. The usual suspects including burritos, enchiladas, tacos, chicken, beef and pork combination plates, go well with the frosty Margaritas and other house specialty drinks. Both smoking and non-smoking dining rooms are available.
This establishment's big claim to fame is that it holds the state's longest continuous liquor license, but that is not the only reason to drop by this historic property. Though it may not be as globally renowned as the name suggests, this has long been one of Williams' favorite neighborhood watering holes, providing a place for folks to congregate for a few games of shuffleboard. On some weekends and holidays, you can enjoy live music. Food service consists of sandwiches, burgers, a few appetizers and a few hot entrees. A full bar service is offered.
