Rt. 66 King of the Road Burger Challenge

If you want a challenge and some fun, this challenge will help you and your friends determine who’s KING! Participate in our “Rt. 66 King of the Road Burger Challenge”.

King of the Road Burger Challenge Rules:

The Cookin’ From Scratch “Road Crew” reserves the right to make necessary changes to make the Challenge fair and possible for all Challengers.

Meal includes:

66 oz. Burger w/Bun and 9 pieces of American cheese
1.5 lbs. fresh cut French fries
Pickles slices
Lettuce, Tomato and Onion

Challenge Rules:
  1. The entire meal must be eaten within 66 minutes. If any of the meal is left uneaten, the challenger is disqualified.
  2. The challenger must sit at the designated table provided.
  3. The challenger may eliminate two of the three set-up items (lettuce, tomato, onion). A Road Crew member will substitute the chosen 2 items for an equal amount (by weight) of fries.
  4. The challenger may check their burger before the start time to make sure it tastes correctly and is done properly.
  5. A Road Crew member begins the time when the challenger signals their approval. The challenger needs to be ready before they signal, because the Road Crew member does not stop the time once it has started.
  6. Once the Road Crew starts the clock, the challenger is not allowed to stand or leave their designated seating area. No one is allowed in the challenger’s area, or to touch their food.
  7. No one is allowed to help the challenger with their food in anyway. If someone helps, the challenger is disqualified.
  8. If the challenger becomes ill, the challenge is over. The challenger is disqualified. The Road Crew has provided containers in the event of illness.

The challenger pays the Challenge Fee before the start of the Route 66 King of the Road Challenge. If the challenger wins, the Road Crew returns all of the Challenge Fee.

If the challenger does not win the Challenge, the challenger is not permitted to share leftovers with anyone in the restaurant.

If the challenger does not win the Challenge, the challenger is allowed to take the leftovers home.

A Road Crew member judges whether the challenger completed the Challenge correctly.

“Great pan fried chicken.” by Michael S. (01/23/2012)


“The best fish sandwich. Exit 179.” by J D. (05/12/2011)


“Everything here really is made from scratch, and diet be damned, I ate almost everything on the menu.

From the buttery grits (comes with butter on the side, but no need to guild the lily) to the savory fried chicken, I was in food heaven. The atmosphere is adorable and nostalgic. We spent a good 20 minutes looking at the vintage pictures on the wall before settling into my booth for a full blown pig out. I am a huge fried pickle fan, and the ones here did not disappoint. They were thinner than the ones I usually eat, but special in their own way. Their hamburger is also a force to be reckoned with. I’ve never had a hamburger on a bun made fresh that day, with pickles made especially for the burger. Every burger I’ve had since pales in comparison.

The love and pride Cookin’ From Scratch took in making their food brought me comfort when I was far from home. If I’m ever in the Ozarks again, I’m definitely coming back for more!”

by Cara W. (12/30/2011)


“The biggest and best Ham Steaks around. Little trucker style restaurant.”

by Adam L. (08/24/2010)


“Stopped here on my drive from San Diego to Chicago. What a pleasant find along the way.

I had the rib eye (medium rare) with coleslaw and tater tots (now that’s living). The meal also came with what appears to be a homemade biscuit. The biscuit was delicious and not overly lardy. I am not sure what location Gordo R. went to but this one was real nice. Very clean restaurant in my opinion (mind you this is coming from a germaphobe). I had to have the rib eye because I was told long ago that the best meat comes from the Midwest (none of that 45-day dry aged beef stuff... personally I call that rotting meat). The steak was prepared perfectly and the coleslaw was great. I was so glad to find this place considering I hadn’t had any luck at any of the spots I stopped at west of here along the I-40.”
