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

We stopped here for lunch, encouraged by a positive review. Yes, the staff are friendly, but the food isn't that good. You'd get very fat very quickly if you had to eat here all the time. I had a Navajo burger which uses fry bread instead of a bun. Didn't have a dessert. My guess is that the clientele was... More

This is a family-operated, friendly short-order restaurant offering traditional sandwiches and southwestern food. Nothing fancy -- just down-home good eats! Prices are very modest. The food is tasty. We enjoyed our brief visit to this local favorite.

We walked in the raggedy place, but I normaly don't judge a book by his cover. We look around and seated ourselfs since nobody was present to welcome or greet us, even though there... More

A nice mix of (new) Mexican and american eats. I had the green chili cheese burger, which was served open face and smothered in green chili sauce. wife had tacos offered as both soft and hard shell. No beer or wine which is a little down side. The owners are very nice and interesting to talk with.
