Description: Route 66 Smokehouse is an American regional themed restaurant serving well known dishes found throughout the different regions along Route 66. It is the only establishment in the neighborhood offering authentic localized American cuisine. Chef Billy Kooper's menu features unique twists on beloved barbecue and Americana recipes with a strong emphasis on hand-selected ingredients from artisanal vendors. The theme continues on the beverage side, with an all-American whiskey list comprised of an array of highly allocated bourbons, ryes and whiskeys, served by the ounce or two ounce. On tap is strictly 100% craft beer, and the cocktail list features libations inspired by landmarks along the restaurant's namesake, such as: Amboy Crater, Whale of Catoosa, and Tucumcari, N.M. For the teetotalers, there's a curated list of cult classic regional sodas like Cheerwine, Dad's Root Beer and Bubble Up Lemon. The restaurant's decor reflects the hometown comfort and rugged charm of the famous road that inspired its name. The ceilings are covered in reclaimed wooden beams from Wisconsin, giving a cozy feel to the expansive 2-floor eatery, which seats 215. In warmer months, outdoor seating on Stone Street is available. Hand-painted murals on both floors add to the lively and colorful ambience.

Right in the heart of wall Street. Located in stone street. This restaurant was very cozy and very well decorated matching the theme of Route 66. White beans tomato soup was very flavorful, the pulled pork sandwich was as expected. Nothing fenomenal.
Great service and perfect location for a quick lunch and a good beer break.
Wish we stopped there for their happy hour between 4 and 7 pm.

Thank Andrea B

My friend and I gave thus place a try on a Sunday afternoon. It wasn't so crowded and although they had the Jets game on, the had the audio on mute. This made for a please meal.

Good section of beers on tap. Service was friendly and our waitress seemed to only appear at the right time, just as we were finishing a beer.

We both had pulled pork sandwiches. Our meals came out super quick. They were hot and tasty.

Since this place is right off walk street, I'm sure it's packed on a weekday night, so the weekend seems to be a sweet spot if you don't like an over packed and crazy bar,

This bar has a good feel and I was excited for the barbecue food. However overall I was left a bit disappointed.

The brisket was outstanding - soft and tender. However, the dry rub on the ribs wasn't my favourite and they were somewhat chewy - a toothpick would have been handy. Sides and sauces were good but not exceptional. Portions were very generous indeed.

The service was very hit and miss - a little slow and it took some time to get the bill. But it was busy and the servers were always warm, helpful and friendly.

Overall it felt more like a pub that happened to do barbecue food than a place which was leading with its food, but has the potential to be great.

Party of three selected this restaurants for a birthday celebration. Initially things were fine;however as the restaurant crowd increased, our service declined. The food had good flavor but the brisket served was extremely dry. They offered to replace the meal, and we accepted, but upon waiting for the replacement dish, we were full and it became a "to go" box. Overall the food was good and would have been better if the brisket was served moist,

We checked out all the establishments on Stone Street on Saturday night, and Route 66 Roadhouse caught our fancy. It was a little chilly so we opted to sit inside, but they have great outdoor seating too. (Stone Street is awesome- just go). We could not believe we were in Manhattan, the atmosphere was fun and casual and friendly. We thought the ribs were awesome, it was a spicy dry rub, not the bottled kind. I chose the St Louis cut and the ribs were huge and meaty. The sides were great also.

There is a very large selection of beer, plus mixed cocktails and wine available.

Around 8:30 there was a jazz trio preforming, very talented. No pressure to order extra drinks. If you want a relaxing Saturday night try it here.
