I’ve visited Peggy Sue’s Diner a couple of times driving from the Los Angeles area to Las Vegas. It’s roughly a 2 hr drive from LAX, and another 2 hr drive from Las Vegas. It’s located just right off I-15, shortly after Barstow (if you’re coming from LA)
It’s exciting every time! You may not know but I have a thing for American diners. The retro look, the atmosphere .. it’s like diving into a 50s movie. And diner food is just comforting. Granted, not all diners are worth a visit. And I did not have the opportunity to eat at Peggy Sue’s yet – but even if you’re just stopping on your ride, to stretch your leg and maybe buy some souvenirs and some candy – it’ll be worth it! The diner first opened up in 1954, and today still functions as a in-door diner but its store and the Dinersaur park in the back is also very popular.
