I hope something can be salvaged. My great-grandfather Roy Rives built the Rock Cafe back in the late 1930s. Our family is very proud of the building. It is a shame this happened.

Guy Fiera recently visited this place for his Food Network show "Diners, Drive-ins, & Dives". This place also had a huge influence on the movie "Cars". The owner claims to have been the inspiration for Sally the Porsche.

Sad news in Stroud, Building was built with 5.00 of Rock, Grandpa Roy worked his heart out building it. Long Live the Rock Cafe, rebuild and they will come. Bless our Great Grandparents who taught us how to work hard.
To the women who run it today, hope every one is OK, don't give up.

This is so sad. They had the best Reuben sandwiches in the world. I pray that they rebuild and am happy no one was injured!

This really hits home. My little sister Beverly is one of the cooks at the Rock along with Dawn aka Sally from cars the owner, and they will rebuild. There was no arson involved. I thank the lord above no one was hurt in this. It will be awesome to see this reopened. Are prayers are with them .

I recently visited Stroud. When are the owners going to clean up the mess? Even after three months, there are still burned appliances and other junk piled out front, right on scenic Highway 66. It looks absolutely terrible and reflects poorly on the town.

Agreed. It's not hallowed ground. What it reflects is a lack of money to get the mess cleaned up.
