I love this Rooster! It's so typical of the kind of wacky attention grabbing signs that small businesses along the Mother Road used, and still use to draw in travelers. I'm gonna run up and hug him next time I get to Vega!

xRooster's is a Mexican Restaurant located at 1300 Vega Blvd. in the former Nell's Shell Station. When it was a Shell gas station and garage there was an overhead door for a service bay about where you see the R S in this photo.

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
