And I get a beer ! ; )JBs is a chain for breakfast. lunch and dinner, the only locations seem to be Arizona New Mexico Utah Wyoming and Montana.I had the...

  • Good Family Style Restaurant

    Calico's is a nice family restaurant. The inside was kind of like a Denny's or an Applebee's but a bit more down home. The staff was very friendly, and the service attentive. I had fish with two vegetables, a large biscuit, and the soup bar. The fish was above average, and the Southwest Corn Chowder (although it did not look that appetizing)...

    This place does not look like much from the outside. The inside had a decent decor with Thai posters on the walls, some comfortable booths and several tables. The service was adequate. The food though is what is memorable about the place. It was fresh, well-prepared, and plentiful. Better than most Thai Restaurants I have been to. A great place to...

    Ok, so it isn't exactly in Kingman...

    In a small rehabilitated ghost town, on Rt. 66, called Oatman, the wild burros wander through the town. Some of the shops sell carrots to feed them. the day I was there, between 10 and 20 were just hanging around, looking for a snack.

    I don't know if anyone would stop in Oatman if there were no burros, so the town has made itself a stop to visit on Rt 66, with shops, restaurants, and a cowboy gunfight (acted out!) every day. Worth the time to stop for a bit. make sure you watch where you step!
