Excellent menu, fun staff and of course delicious standards! The food is very good and the atmosphere is very casual...everything we've had on the menu is delicious.

Oh, the biscuits and sausage gravy (and eggs, and potatoes) ... the best I've had in ABQ. It's a pleasant informal place, and we'll be going back.

This is a great little place. You order at the counter and then they bring you a wonderful meal. Their green chile stew is wonderful....huge chunks of potatoes and meat. I love their Frito pie! Very reasonably priced!

A nice menu to choose from! Great sandwiches and breakfasts! Very consistent service and food. They are a little hidden from the road so I think there would be trouble getting tables otherwise! They do have lots of seating and also takeout. Tell your friends and try it yourself. They deserve to have a line out the door!!!

We thought that the food was great. The food we ordered was very good. We didn't order the burger, but it looked delicious. We will be back, very soon, to try it.

Pretty good food, large portions, reasonable price. We have tried the ruben, burgers, fries, etc and all were very good for diner food.

Always on the hunt for new restaurants to try. Went around lunch time on a Saturday and only a few people there. Sad since the food turned out to be really good. Ordered the huevos rancheros with red and crispy bacon side. Food came out fast. My friend had the breakfast burrito Christmas and enjoyed both red and green. Hearty... More

My Colleague and I ate there for Breakfast & the first thing I noticed was that no one came immediately to the register or greeted us upon arrival. Then when she finally did come over (due to a growing line), she still never said a word. Upon delivering our food to the table, she stated that she realized that she... More

Friendly prompt greetings. Asked them to cook the burger medium rare. It was cooked closer to med. well and lacked any juiciness. Potato cake lacked any seasoning and was dry. My fellow diner had the 6th Burger which was tasty, but too big, fries were good, but too many. The restaurant was not busy, but could get medium rare on... More
