Americana on Old Route 66

Tepee Motel

July 20, 2010 (midday)

I stopped in Holbrock AZ to eat lunch and came across a tepee motel. Each room is a separate tepee (not a real one, a building in the shape of a tepee), and each room has at least one vintage car in front. I was tempted to stay there, but I needed to be further down the road before I stopped for the night.

Across the street, I ate lunch at the Wayside Restaurant, which has been there fifty years or so. I had a Navajo Burger, which is served on fry bread, a flat bread that is (of course) fried and almost has a pastry taste to it. Much better than a sesame bun.



  1. Ah, the lovely fry-bread! Sounds like a wonderful way to have a burger. Something definitely NOT to be eaten in excess, especially if you are not used to it. We went on a mission trip one summer to an Indian reservation in NM. One night we ate on the reservation. It was wonderful. Loved the fry-bread. Unfortunately, my brother loved it a little too much. I’ll just leave it at that.


    • I was quite impressed with fry bread.
