Go down memory lane to the Rock Cafe

This video about the Rock Cafe in Stroud, Okla., by Jack Frank’s Tulsa Films is 10 years old, but a lot has happened since then.

The Rock Cafe was nearly destroyed by fire a few years later (and rebuilt), and owner Dawn Welch’s little girl, Alexis, is now college age. And the restaurant started to get really crowded in 2006 after the “Cars” movie was released.

The weird part is owner Dawn Welch is apparently ageless.

    Interesting. I’ve been wondering what’s up with the Rock for a while. I know Dawn had talked about selling it and moving on to something new in her life. Does she still own the Rock, intend to sell, etc?

    Dawn, what’s up with the Rock, and what are you doing these days? We missed you in 2012 (Aug 1) while driving Rt 66 Chi-LA in our twin Corvettes, was hoping to drive through in July again this summer, but then find out you and the Rock may have parted company? I wanted to have the Jagerschnitzel and Spaetzle and say hi. “As the world goes speeding towards red and green…” is the way we like to take our road trips, and a good outlook on life. Hope to hear more of your adventures, and also hope things are bright for you.
