Delgadillo’s Snow Cap Drive-In was built by Juan Delgadillo himself in 1953. The creative Delgadillo didn’t have much of a budget back in 1953, so the restaurant was built with scrap lumber from the Sante Fe railroad. Delgadillo started the crazy decor himself when he cut his car in half and adorned it with fake Christmas trees. Now, visitors even involve themselves in the decorating process, as the interior includes a number of traveler tokens like foreign money, business cards, vintage pictures and other random souvenirs.
Juan Delgadillo passed away in 2004, however the eatery is operated by his two sons, who continue to operate the place with a playful spirit. As visitors walk to the entrance, they will first see the “Sorry, we’re open” sign before they try to figure out if the left or right knob opens the door. The jokes don’t end there though, as the menu points out the obvious with “dead chicken” and “cheeseburger with cheese” as popular food options.
With jokes around every corner, eye-catching decor that will have you asking “why?”, and an iconic location along Route 66, there is no wonder by Delgadillo’s has attracted visitors for over 50 years. Delgadillo’s Snow Cap Drive-In is an historic, must-stop spot on your next road trip across Route 66 in Arizona.
