Snow Cap- An Historic Route 66 Landmark

Delgadillo’s Snow Cap Drive-In in Seligman, AZ was established by Juan and Mary Delgadillo in 1953 along Route 66. The building was built by Juan,  with the help of his father and his brothers, out of scrap lumber he collected while working for the railroad. Juan retired from the railroad and worked everyday at the Snow Cap until the day he died, June 2, 2004 at the age of 88. Juan became well known through many magazines and newspaper articles as one of the co-founders of Historic Route 66. He was cherished by tourists for the antics he pulled on them while they were trying to order food and drinks. Many people still stop by and say that the place is the same as it was when they came by as a young person.Today, visitors from Europe, Germany, Japan and other countries, as well as those from the United States seek the nostalgia of Historic Route 66 and the jokes that are famous at the Snow Cap. Juan and Mary’s son John and daughter Cecilia, along with other family members are continuing the tradition so their grandchildren and great grandchildren will be able to grow up knowing the legacy that comes with this family business. Stop by and meet John and Cecilia while you enjoy a beautiful ride down Historic Route 66. We always stop on our tours for ice cream and the wonderful atmosphere at Snow Cap; home of the “Cheeseburger with Cheese” and “Dead Chicken”!
