Lucille’s Roadhouse Diner in Weatherford, Oklahoma is a Route 66 themed restaurant that pays homage to one of the most beloved stops on the Mother Road. Opened on Route 66 in 2006, it’s been serving up delicious breakfasts, lunches, and dinners with a side of history for over a decade.
The exterior ofLucille’s Roadhouse Diner is modeled after the original Lucille’s Historic Highway Gas Station in Hydro, Oklahoma (AKA Provine Service Station, Hamons’ Station, Lucille’s Place) where the porched-front towers over a couple of vintage gas pumps.

Inside admire the Route 66 themed restaurant with a Mother Road Mural that depicts a Route 66 shield, a map of the route, a photo of the original Lucille’s, and a cartoon rendering of Lucille Hamons, the “Mother of the Mother Road.”
