Long Description:
"Mr. D’z Route 66 Diner of Kingman and the Snow Cap Drive-In in Seligman were named among the top 12 diners and drive-in restaurants in Arizona by Arizona Highways magazine, reported the Kingman Daily Miner.

As you can see from the November issue’s table of contents, although the magazine ranked Mr. D’z higher at No. 2, the No. 5-ranked Snow Cap made the cover.

In May 2006, Mr. D’z gained a lot of additional fame when it was visited by TV talk-show host Oprah Winfrey and friend Gayle King during a road trip. She liked the root beer so much that she donated bottles of it to her studio audience."
