Underpass Cafe

Route 66/Cty. Rd W, Phillipsburg, MO

East < GO > West

In 1941 O.E. Carter & Ed Lawson erected a small gas station here and in 1950 they added this cafe building. Only the cafe building stands today. The separate small prefabricated gas station building was located on the right side of the cafe building. It is located just west of the railroad overpass on Route 66 (by grain silos) or Route 66 (Cty. W) east of I-44, exit 118

x The words Breakfast Lunch Dinner are very faint but still readable above the windows. The Lebanon Route 66 Association has partnered with the property owner to repaint the building and the ghost signs since these photos were snapped in 2016.

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
