Adrian: MidPoint Café

In Adrian, a small town that experienced its glory years during Route 66’s heyday, travelers pull over to take a photo at the iconic sign that proclaims "Los Angeles 1139 miles / Chicago 1139 miles." A must-stop is the MidPoint Café, reportedly the oldest continuously-operated eatery on Route 66 in Texas. Named for its precise location on Route 66 midway between Chicago and Los Angeles, the MidPoint Café has a much-deserved reputation for serving the best hamburgers and homemade pies in the region.
