Route 66's Holland Burger Cafe Gets Plaqued-- Part 2

On October 16th, a plaque was dedicated at the venerable institution in Victorville, California by a group called E. Clampius Vitus, known as the Clampers, a fraternal organization dedicated to preserving western heritage.

The cafe was started by Kate and Bob Holland in 1947, who ran it until their waitress Emma jean Gentry took over in 1979. She died, but her son Brian, husband and daughter-in-law still run the place. (I got to meet all three of them).

Of course, son Brian was the inventor of the Brian Burger, which is a hand-packed paddy with mild green chili, Swiss-American cheese on Parmesan toast.

The place was featured in many scenes in Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill, Vol. 2."

A definite Place to Stop. --RoadDog
