Great hashbrowns

There is usually a wait for tables and booths but the food and service are worth it. Very good variety on menu and they are willing to do subtitutions. Someone always roaming with a coffee pot for refills. Once you order, the food arrives quickly and hot. The waitresses really keep things moving.

After a hike at White Sands and before the trip back to Albuquerque we wanted to fuel up. This place was really laid back, and served excellent NM-style breakfast. The prices were great and the staff were really friendly.

We were glad we got there early to beat the crowd. There's not a ton of seating and it feels a little crowded, but the food was good, especially the waffles. The menu is extensive enough that everyone should be able to find something they like.

Real breakfast, as opposed to those hotel/motel powdered egg horrors. Menu has enough diversity for just about anyone. Standart stuff, ok staff, unremarkable atmosphere.

Nothing fancy or pretentious. Good food, fun to watch the action behind the counter as the cooks make ur meal. Nominated for the best breakfast burrito in New Mexico. Same waitresses for years. Local owned by George and his son.

Great breakfast and service was good. A bit of a wait but it was well worth it prices aren't too bad and the plates are large.😋

Waffle & Pancake Shoppe looks like a converted Waffle House, nice selection on menu, service was quick and friendly. Coffee cup never allowed to go below half cup, had the chicken fried steak breakfast, cook just right, came to table faster than expected, hot and eggs cook, just right. Lots of locals (not there's a lot of local in Alamogordo),... More

A great local eatery where you can have the standard breakfast choices and a killer green chili sauce to cover you omelet or burrito. Their home fried potato are good covered with the sauce too. You can also order a tasty chicken fried steak and eggs that is going to satisfy the hunger pains. Don't miss this establishment.

I'm someone who actually likes a good Waffle House so when I say this place is like someone took over a Waffle House sized restaurant and took away the corporate stuff and made it a little homier I consider it a complement. Good food, didn't really wait on a Sunday morning which was nice. Good service. Good food.

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...
