Enchiladas New Mexico style sans fried egg were awesome. The diner food eaten by the rest of the family was yummy too. Road trip stop for me and my family was convenient, clean and had good service. Our experience was overall very good.

We stop here every time we travel between Santa Fe and Austin for green chile breakfast burritos and they never disappoint. And it is great to see all the original fittings.

We were hungry, it was close...we were warmly greated, seated and order taken. While clean, this establishment has seen better days! Hubby had a Burriot and I had a mushroom burger. His was surprisingly lacked any spices...my burger was WONDERFUL! I guess mine was a hit and his was a miss!

Food was not bad but the meat was a little overcooked. The can corn was good as were the mashed potatoes. Service was friendly but not that great. The atmosphere was good, It is good size and clean. The best thing was looking at the Christmas tree decorated with Halloween goodies.

Wow, what a great place to stop for eats. The service was spot on and so friendly. You could have regular American breakfast of go for it with enchiladas with rice and beans. Would highly recommend and stop bye again if ever in town.

If anything, too close to perfection for the RTE 66 vibe. This ain't Mickie D's so don't judge their food by that scale. Clean. Friendly. Good. That's it. This is an authentic highway diner that's a delight to discover. So, if you have a bit longer than a drive through and aren't craving a McHappy Whatever, stop and enjoy!

The Route 66 Restaurant was an good stop for good food. Primarily comfort food made fresh. The green Chile cheeseburger was really good.

We were staying at the hotel next door so we thought it nice to be able to walk over for dinner. BIG MISTAKE. Waitress seemed as if we were a bother to have to serve, there was only one other couple in the place. I asked if the Fried chicken was a good choice or should I order something else.... More

This was a nice establishment. We ate lunch there and was not disappointed. My Mother had vegetable stew and it was very good. A definitely must eating place if you travel through this town.

Thank Glenda A
