Wild West Junction

While we were doing a job in Pittman Valley, just this side of Flagstaff, AZ, we stayed in Williams, and took in some of the sites there. My first stop was at Wild West Junction on Sunday morning. I was too late for services at the small church in the corner of the courtyard, but I had a wonderful visit with Cozette and Jerry. She’s the minister and he is gonna be Santa this year. They are working with Helping Hands and getting some presents and CHRISTmas cheer to those in need for the holidays this year.

The following Sunday I was able to attend the services and it was such a wonderful fellowship. Randy and I went for an early dinner in the Typhoon Saloon & Restaurant, at the Junction. The food was just great. The service was like something from the past, beyond friendly, one of the owners Mike, took our order and had some good suggestions on what to get. It was a really enjoyable meal. We had to stop eating, so as not to bust, the portions are very generous. We also visited the museum, Mike has been collecting for years and it is worth looking into. It was an altogether wonderful experience.

There is also a really neat looking Mercantile Store, I peeked in a few times, but I was always on my way someplace else. I will definitely go in and browse, when we go back to do the finish on the job in Pittman Valley.

Eateries in Williams Arizona

November 14th, 2006 LeiLei Posted in Restaurants No Comments »

Rosa’s Cantina, 411 N. Grand Canyon Blvd. in Williams, AZ has very good Mexican food. As of this writing they had smoking (in the bar area with dining tables) and non-smoking areas, but they voted to ban smoking in bars and restaurants, in Tuesdays November election. Still the portions were generous, the service was good, and the pricing was reasonable.

Twisters Soda Fountain, 417 E. Route 66, also in Williams, AZ is blast from the past. We had the burgers, with some really good fries and fried zucchini. They also have a souvenirs shop attached to it, so you can shop while you wait for your food, but it’s a very short wait, the service was fast and friendly. Prices here were very reasonable.

Pizza Factory, 214 W. Route 66, Williams, AZ. The same pizza we have all come to love and enjoy, and they deliver, cash only for deliveries. You can dine in, very nice atmosphere.
