Lucille's Service Station

Lucille's Service Station served Route 66 travelers for over 70 years. It is named for Lucille Hamons, it's proprietor for most of its history, who's generous service to travelers earned her the nickname "Mother of the Mother Road". The station has been closed since Lucille's death in 2000.

POPS Soda Ranch

A giant 66 foot tall soda bottle lures travelers off of Route 66.

A gas station like no other: POPS Soda Ranch. In addition to serving up fuel, POPS offers a restaurant and a selection of hundreds of varieties of soda pop.

A unique building for a unique stop.

Do you like orange soda? Here are some of the orange options.

Or do you prefer flavors from another world?

PB&J pairs well with Buffalo Wings.

Corn and peanut butter. I might need something to wash that down.
No matter your tastes, POPS likely has something for you.

At this price, even their credit card transaction fees won't be covered.
