Tumbleweeds Grill, Texola, Oklahoma

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."

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
