Destination :      Peggy Sues 50s Diner

Web Address :      Yes : Click Here to Visit

Category :      Restaurant / 50's Diner

Location :      City : Yerma     State : California

When :      Any Time

Reason to Visit :      Peggy Sue's is an original roadside Diner, built in 1954. It sets in the shadow of the Calico Mountains and was built from railroad ties and mortar from the nearby Union Pacific Rail yard.

Peggy Sue and her husband Champ came from Southern California in 1981, reopened the diner in 1987 and attempted to restore and preserve it in its original state. Before moving to the desert in 1981 Champ worked for Knott's Berry Farm and Peggy Sue worked in the movies. The Diner was the perfect place to display their extensive collection of movie and TV memorabilia.

To compliment the cozy atmosphere of the Diner, they wanted good homemade - food and great 50's music. Peggy Sue used her grandmothers family recipes, made the old fashioned way. Thanks to the support of Loyal Locals, Trusty Truck Drivers, Mighty Military and Terrific Tourists the Diner prospered and became more popular.

Peggy Sue's Diner ran out of room, so they decided to expand the Diner into a Real Old Fashioned Tourist Stop. Just like they remembered when they traveled across country as kids. They opened a 50's style 5 & Dime Store with Curios and Memorabilia, Soda Fountain, Ice Cream Parlor and Pizza Parlor. They even created their own Paradise Park with Waterfalls, Fountains, Ponds, Grass and Trees for their guests to take a stroll.

In 1997 they also reopened an original 1959 roadside diner in Victorville where you can have a slice of pie, and a slice of the past.

Ray Plumlee's Comments :
Peggy Sue's 50's Diner is a great place to stop and have breakfast, lunch, dinner or just an ice cream float at the old fashioned Ice Cream Parlor. Conveniently located along side Interstate 15 about 8 miles east of Barstow, California in Yerma.

I visited Peggy Sues 50's Diner while staying at the Calico Ghost Town RV Park and Campground about 3 miles away.

Peggy Sues 50's Diner is loaded with all kinds of Hollywood momentos, pictures etc. This is definitely a place with personality. I highly recommend stopping by Peggy Sues 50's Diner if you are in the area.
