Good food, don't just drive by!

We drove by, but on second thought, turned around and went in for dinner. Sure we glad we did. It is the type of you place you would drive past, if you didn't know better.

We went in to Eat here, I got the chicken enchiladas which were okay tasting. But the sides the rice was completely dry and the beans were dry and Nasty also. The only good thing about this place is the salsa... The next day I had to spend my road trip pulling over and throwing up mile after mile. Don't... More

Good food, good service, pleasant hostess/owner. Reasonable prices, and pretty quick service. This is a small, hole-in-the wall type restaurant, which is usually the best kind where the locals eat.

I really wanted some tasty New Mexican after being in the Colorado mountains for a week. I read the reviews but, unfortunately, I didn't have a very good meal. I ordered a combo and the taco was OK and so was the tostada. I judge most restaurant by the quality of the frijoles and this is where the Wayside Cafe... More

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
