Tumbleweeds Grill, Texola
The Tumbleweeds Grill is located in Texola, Oklahoma, in the world famous Water Hole #2 building. The owners have completely renovated the original structure into the oldest building on Route 66 operating as a restaurant. Tumbleweeds is open seven days a week serving breakfast, lunch and dinner from 7am to 7pm. The restaurant is very clean and serves excellent home-cooked food including all-day breakfasts.
A real selling point for the Tumbleweeds Grill is Masel, the owner - a woman who is ever-welcoming and enjoys interacting with her customers with real enthusiasm.
The building was originally known as the Water Hole #2 and is a former 1930's beer joint. This is a great stop and a truly authentic part of Route 66 history. Situated on the Texas-Oklahoma border the town of Texola itself dates back to the early 1900s and has previously been known as Texokla and Texoma! Texola is almost a Ghost Town and has some interesting relics of gas stations and a territorial jail cell.
"This was a great little place. Masel is the owner and she is a great artist too! Stop in for food and chat for a while. This town (Texola) only has about 40 people living there now, but it was once a much bigger town."
