The Clinksdale Hotel, Bar + Grill – Jerome, AZ
The alarm went off at 4:30am and after hitting snooze a couple of times, I rolled out of bed and hit the shower. Once all I got myself going, I aired up the tires on the Harley and headed out north on I-17 to AZ SR 260 then on SR 89A into Jerome. I must admit, it got a little chilly at times once I went up the hill in Black Canyon City, but not uncomfortably so. What a great break from the record breaking Phoenix Valley heat!
I arrived at the restaurant a few minutes early and greeted by a group of us already there. The Clinksdale opened promptly at 8:30 and let us all in. We were a group of about 15 and were accommodated effortlessly by the restaurant. Service was prompt and friendly! I ordered the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with a side of bacon. Wow, this was the best breakfast I’d had in a while! Everyone else had similar reactions to what they’d ordered. This one was definitely worth the long trip to Jerome for breakfast! We all caught up with the happenings of summer and what’s coming for fall.
After breakfast, we all went our separate ways, some rode straight back to the valley, others stayed in Jerome to walk around, I, took the long way home down 89A through Mingus Mountain, Prescott, Skull Valley and Wickenburg. I then stopped to cool off and shake off some drowsiness at Dillon’s KC BBQ at Western Trails Ranch in Morristown for lunch.
As always, it was great to see everyone!
