----- PERMANENTLY CLOSED ----- This unique diner with its warped red door was one of the most popular stops on Route 66. It had a 24-hour cafe and gas station to welcome weary drivers. Since its closure in 1972 it has sat empty and untended. However, a family bought the building and grounds in 2006, hoping to open it again. Their progress can be seen on The Bent Door Cafe Facebook page. (Submitted by CJ Boales)
