Delgadillo's Snow Cap

on Route 66:

Where WE get our kicks


Located on Historic Route 66 in Seligman, Arizona, Delgadillo's Snow Cap is a good ole slice of Americana

Juan and Mary Delgadillo established the Snow Cap Drive-In on Route 66 in Seligman, Arizona in 1953. At which time, the Snow Cap was a well known franchise. Juan, along with the help of his father and brothers, built the Snow Cap out of scrap lumber Juan collected while working for the railroad. Juan retired from the railroad and worked every day at the Snow Cap until the day he passed away, 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 along with his brother Angel. Juan was cherished by tourists for the antics he pulled on them while they were trying to order food and drinks. Many people will stop and say that the place is the same as it was when they came here as a young person. Today, visitors from Europe, Asia 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 children, Bob, John and Cecilia ran the business until the untimely passing of Bob in 2007 at the age of 50. Today, John and Cecilia along with Bob's children Bree, Aerie and Matt as well as other family members continue the tradition so the grandchildren and great grandchildren will be able to grow up knowing the legacy that comes with this family business. We hope you enjoy your visit and look forward to your return.

In loving memory of Juan, Mary and Bob Delgadillo.
