Thanksgiving Dinner Served Here

Roadside Americana

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 32mm ISO 200 1/50 f/11 Lr4, TpzSim; PsCS6

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.

Chicken Savings Time

Roadside Americana

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 27mm ISO 200 1/15 f/16 Lr4, TpzSim; PsCS6

When contemplating Americana, fried chicken, and especially Colonel Sanders’ original recipe, has to come to mind.  This outpost of the venerable chicken chain is at the corner of Mountain Avenue and Foothill Boulevard, on a segment of historic Route 66 in Upland, California.

Donut Construction Site

Roadside Americana

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 200mm ISO 250 3-bkts f/11 Lr4, TpzSim; PsCS6

Long before there were McMuffins there were donuts for “healthy” Americans to start their day.  Back in the day Winchell’s was a favorite stop for me when I was craving a crumb cake donut, and no construction barriers would have kept me from getting to a dozen donuts.  (I have been paying the price for that behavior ever since.)

Mimi’s Cafe, Chino Hills, California.  A chain, but even a chain has its virtues, good breakfasts, muffins and the clam chowder is very decent (when hot and fresh).
