Anyway, there are so many routes you can go. If you head directly north out of Phoenix, one of my favorites is another tourist trap in Flagstaff called Black Bart's. The food is good, but the entertainment is some of the best. The waitstaff are primarily drama students at NAU and they perform song and dance routines during the meal. Nothing like having your waitress drop off your food and hop on stage to sing. Kitschy, maybe, but definitely a LOT of fun. If you're taking I10 east, then be sure to stop and see The Thing at Texas Canyon near Bisbee, Arizona. Another wonderful tourist trap. If you stay in Las Cruces, be sure to eat at the Double Eagle in Mesilla to get a feel for a luxurious old west restaurant. Sunday brunch is fabulous.

This is great! thanks a ton!
