Peggy's is totally dedicated to the 50's era and fun. There is so much to see along the walls and there is a fun picnic area in the back, a unique gift shop, and a extensive menu of diner foods to choose from. The prices are great and so is the service and smiles! A very fun decor theme too!
Bring a lunch and avoid paying the higher prices at the Old Miner's Cafe, unless you really want to experience the Old West for yourself--at an inflated price of course.
There are a few other choices at Calico Ghost Town such as Lil's Saloon--in the 1880 there were 22 saloons in town--and Calico House Restaurant. Not to mention the popcorn and Icee wagon. It would have been the Old Miner's Cafe that I'd choose if we hadn't packed that picnic.
In the great outdoors, Mom's home cooking over a camp fire--in our case, a propane burner--served on the picnic table at the KOA campsite is a great experience. Especially if you don't want to drive ten or fifteen miles to find a cafe.
At Calico Ghost Town there were a couple of places to eat but we wanted the experience of outdoor cooking much like the life of the Silver miner of 1881. Okay, they didn't have a propane burner, but you get the idea.
Favorite Dish: Bacon and eggs for breakfast.
Ham, lettuce, tomato, sandwiches, and fruit for lunch.
Hamburgers, hotdogs, or carne asada with tortillas and beans and a salad for dinner.
This is a nice diner, open 24 hours right off the 15 freeway as you are headed to las vegas or back home to LA. You want to stop for the homemade soups and the best peach cobbler.

Favorite Dish: Peach Cobbler and they are known for thier steaks. Thick and juicy steaks made to order your way.
