This has been a family favorite restaurant since it was built in the 1980's. A 1950's Retro styled building shaped like an owl with neon design, you can't miss it while driving on Eubank Boulevard. Always busy, but great service, and down-home cooking, you will...More

Green chiles should be required on all food. Green chile cheeseburger was fantastic. My son inhaled his chicken fried steak. Only wish we had room for milkshakes. Have gone here several times over the years while in NM. Always a treat.

Classic diner experience here. Hearty food in sizable portions nicely served at reasonable prices. Service is usually fun, chatty like you're a local. Great for both breakfast or lunch.

PLUS good diner food! The burgers are big, meaty, juicy and come any way you like ‘em. Try one smothered in chili with a generous slather of pinto beans and fries. We will be going back soon to check out the other menu items.
