Tied and hungry, driving through time zones and didn’t realize we popped in 15 minutes before closing time. They served us anyway. Started with Fried Mushroom appetizer. My wife had the Veggie Quesadilla and I had the Trout dinner. And it was fresh. Kudos to...More

This restaurant showed up in the AAA guide at the top, and my dad picked it. It looked pretty cute from the street, and had a funky gift shop filled with Rte 66 stuff. I was feeling a little Mexican, but was pretty disappointed by...More

Do not pass by this charming place. We stopped to eat on the way to Albuquerque. Wonderful food and Route 66 atmosphere! The CF steak was the BOMB. The chili relleno was great. So good, we stopped to eat on the way back home!

Decor and 60's music fit nicely with this quick Route 66 stop off of I-40 for lunch traveling in our RV. The menu was interesting. The tamales and tostada were very good and the waitress gave us complimentary sopapillas afterwards. Nice Route 66 gift shop...More

We enjoyed some beers one evening, we had intended to dine here. The restaurant was fairly busy and service was slow, so we left.

Not really impressed with this restaraunt. Cute decor but servers were inattentive, one knife was dirty, no one asked if we wanted another drink and mild green sauce was pretty spicy hot. Chicken enchiladas were tasty but chili relleno was not very impressive. Think I...More
