Thanksgiving Dinner Served Here

Roadside Americana

The Sycamore Inn, providing food and drink to travelers on old Route 66, since before there was a Route 66.  This Rancho Cucamonga, California landmark first opened in 1848.  On the menu for Thanksgiving 2012: A selection of 29 wines by the glass, a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings, or filet mignon, prime rib or salmon.  Served in the main dining room at tables with white tablecloths and ancient wing backed chairs on casters, squint your eye and you might see an old sour dough miner celebrating a gold strike.
