This is the friendliest restaurant I've ever been in. The owner chatted with us while we were there. She made us feel like one of her family. The food is great! If you're passing through Holbrook at a meal time, you have to stop here.

Having walked for miles at the Petrified Forest National Park, we were famished and stopped for lunch at the Wayside Inn in Holbrook, AZ. The home-cooked enchiladas and taco salad were delicious. The lady co-owner was so nice and accommodating. Wish they had provided paper towels in the one-holer ladies' room, though.

Driving from Albuquerque to Sedona we were in Holbrook at lunch time and decided on this cafe. We both had a combo plate which was only a dollar more than ordering something less. The taco and enchildadas were excellent, and the salsa was great. Sopapillas were included and were delicious. We'd recommend Wayside.

The gold is made free scratch and with care, you get lovely portions that are plate licking good, and the service was so friendly I wish I could be a copy.

I have stayed in Holbrook about 5-6 times and each time I ate at different restaurants. I hoped to find one that I could say was the best in town... But not this time. The Wayside is a good restaurant, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. But the food was just pretty average. I got a plate that... More

Ever take a chance on an unknown local restaurant and been delighted? That was our experience at Wayside Cafe! While there is little outside to lure you in, and even inside it looks like "just another little restaurant", these give you no indication of what is in store. Wendy warmly greeted us and patiently guided us through the menu. There... More

Great Mexican food and great service. After having a wonderful dinner here we went back to.our hotel. Soon after we heard a knock on the door and it was the owner of the cafe with my credit card! She tracked us down by looking for my car. Talk about going above and beyond. I will definitely be eating here whenever... More
