Elvis is in the building at Mr. D'z Route 66 Diner, where owners Michelle and Armando Jimenez dish up burgers, barbecue and hot-fudge sundaes, along with music from the 1950s and '60s and plenty of vintage memorabilia. Manager Amber McIntire explains Mr. D'z retro appeal:

How does Mr. D'z pay tribute to Historic Route 66?
We're an old-fashioned diner, and people love the atmosphere. This building has been here since the 1920s, so it's been a part of Route 66 for a very long time. We have a lot of memorabilia — maps and more — and we sell emblems and magnets, too. People stop in, go back home and tell their friends to visit, too.

What are some of the most popular items on the menu?
The cheeseburger. People love that we have homemade root beer, so some people come in just for that. We also make homemade pizza. Our shakes and malts are made from scratch, with real ice cream and fresh fruit.

Oprah Winfrey is a huge fan of Mr. D'z root beer. Have any other celebrities popped into the diner?
Angus T. Jones from Two and a Half Men has come in with his grandmother. One of the werewolves from the Twilight movies has been in, too. He lives on the Hualapai Reservation at Peach Springs.

—Kelly Vaughn Kramer

Mr. D'z Route 66 Diner is located at 105 E. Andy Devine Avenue in Kingman. For more information, call 928-718-0066 or visit www.mrdzrt66diner.com.
