Better than Denny's/Ihop

Had been looking for a good mom n' pop breakfast place and found the near perfect one. Huge, cheap breakfasts and a bottomless coffee cup. The green chili salsa was as terrific as the staff was friendly. A little tough to find, with that big Denny's sign looming over it, it's small, with limited seating. However, any wait is worth...

I get it, this place has been around a looooong time and some of the employees have been there just as long (or maybe she was the owner??). I have always enjoyed the food, but I moved away and have been gone for almost 15 years. In that time I have grown up and became a huge foodie. With that... More

Service was great. The place is a little dated but the food and service made up for it. Food was fresh and fast. Coffee hot. Fair price. Would go there again.

This joint is hopping! The whole thing is an experience. The fry-cooks gossip with their friends at the counter, while keeping food moving; they're in the zone. Waitresses fly past, but see your every need written on your face and fill it. This place has a Denny's sign up in front, and the place was clearly a Waffle House once... More

We've eaten at the Waffle House for many years. It's like an "old time" cafe It's small, there's usually a line, but it usually doesn't take more that 10 minutes to get a booth, table or opening at the counter. Again, nothing fancy, but great food & fair prices. The omelets are huge! Again, this is a locally owned business,... More

Popular spot for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Eggs, bacon, hash browns, coffee. A little disappointed in the hash browns. If you read my reviews, hash browns are the key to my ratings for breakfast places. These were browned only on one side and were quite greasy. meh.... That said they were turning tables as fast as they could and... More

Great diner. They need to build on to make space for all their customers! We had to wait but I'm glad we stayed. Our waitress, Loretta was really nice and super efficient. Our food was really good; my husband had the breakfast burrito, while my kids and I have the pancakes. The portions were very generous and the prices were... More

Every time we visit family in Alamogordo we eat here. Our last visit was two days ago and once again, the food was terrific! My husband ordered the chicken fried steak and it was delish! Every dish we order is tasty, cooked perfectly, and just enough. Our service is always attentive and pleasant. We will always eat here when we... More
