The Wheel turns

So the historic Wheel Inn Restaurant in the Kingdom of Cabazonia is currently closed, albeit temporarily, for either renovation and/or managerial transference; either way, it shall be open for business again in due time, thus adding to the charm of this land of prehistoric wonders. It has been featured prominently in Peewee's Big Adventure, and Tears For Fears' Everybody Wants To Rule The World" music video.

What drew Me to this quaint establishment is the classic "EAT" sign off the side of the road of Route 666, accompanying the giant dinosaurs created by Knott's Berry Farm artist & sculptor Claude Bell as his first project {who also ran The Wheel Inn}, of course - a brontosaurus named 'Dinny' and a Tyrannosaurus Rex named "Mr. Rex", now attached to a maze of dinosaurs somewhat likened a 'monster island', which was an amusing excursion.

The atmosphere is most definitely a diner experience with an Old West theme. My visits there were most gratifying, with quick attentive service and delicious repast. Featuring pinball machines, velvet paintings, home cooking, operational payphones, a gift shop, even a prospector and his trusty companion stationed outside bidding patrons a welcome and a come back soon... ∞
