Route 66 – Foxtons finest?


I have driven to Auckland HEAPS, maybe a million times in my life. Traveling up State Highway 1, about an hour and a half out of Wellington, you drive through Foxton. Since I was a kid there as always been an American style diner in the middle of “town”. This weekend just gone I dropped in to give it a try. Route 66 is the diners current guise.

Although I wasn’t expecting much, the restaurant did disappoint, a place like this will always be judged on it’s fries. They serve them as a side on every meal, they need to be perfect…or at least half decent. But alas, they were lukewarm and flavorless. 4/10 and they got one point for having a car on the roof and having a crazy short bar stool.
