After one week of anniversary madness in the blog, here we are again with a new episode of our American road trip. The next stop is Mariposa, but we would like to show you first the amazing place where we had lunch on our revisit to California.
Peggy Sue is a 50s dinner in Yermo, California, that it is without any slight doubt very popular according to the number of cars in their parking lot ;)
Although the restaurant is original from the 1954, the current owner in the 80s repaired it and decorated the place with their movie memorabilia collection, which is, nowadays, one of the main attractions. From an Elvis and Marylin real size statue, to Wizard of Oz ceramic masks and vintage dolls, everything is completely packed.
I have to admit that what even impressed me more was the Dinersaur park (pun credit to Peggy Sue :P) on the back of the restaurant, with (awesome, of course) dinosaur sculptures. Any kids’ dream, and ours, we are such dino freaks!
Put your roller skates on, and let’s have a burger!
P.S: We would like to thank everyone for the sweet comments on all the anniversary posts! Guys you are the nicest! :) We have been out (there is a little spoiler in Instagram) to celebrate the anniversary this weekend, so we are now back on track! We will post soon a little (this time we promise it will be so :P) recap of our anniversary getaway.
** This post is part of our US road trip series **
Peggy Sue tall sign is visible from the road. Here you can see two giant dino behind me, but I’m brave, not scared at all, maybe over excited, but not feeling any threat ;)
This scenario is on the Dinersaur park to host shows, and my rock’n’roll dancing moves.
We took the advice and sat at a clean table :) How sweet is the hat?
Peggy Sue has 3 booths with different decoration for each one. This is the one with all the movie memorabilia (the one we chose!)
Barbara was our waitress, showing here how magical is the free refill (for us Europeans :P)
They had a movie test in each table with questions about 50s movies and stars.
Look on the back the sunroom’s hanging plants :)
The diner has several jukeboxes but unfortunately none of them is working right now.
Dani had the Southern fried chicken that uses crispy buttermilk batter (!) with Peggy Sue’s classic curly fries. The sizes of the plates are big, so it may be a good idea to share, and also do not forget to order both their classic cokes (vanilla or chocolate flavors) and the old-fashioned ice cream sodas, this last one is a must!
Barbara checking all the tickets, it surprised us that the check was handwritten.
I like to pretend that this is a reserved table for our next visit :)
