Was on a road trip to New Mexico with the better half, and she's been through here a few times, years ago, and said this was a good place to eat. We went in and sat down. The first thing that got annoying real quick, was the amount of flies in the building, ( I can understand a fly or... More

It's ok, not great. And, it's not the homey home cooking you hope. Atmosphere is fun/funny. We had their Mexican choices (Salsa tasted like it was the cold stuff straight from Sam's) and found them to be acceptable but far too pricey for what you were getting - they know they have a captive audience. It's on the main road... More

The menu is pricy for what you get. If you want small servings, less flavor, no really healthy choices, sub standard service, cheese or fried choices and pay lots for it, then this is your kind of place. I almost walked out when I could not find a healthy choice on the dinner menu. And, I so wish I had.... More

Clovis is not a garden spot by any stretch but this "home cooking'" restaurant gives you something to look forward to if you're traveling between, say, Austin and Albuquerque. I only can speak to the breakfast and the service but both were excellent - pancakes, light and fluffy; bacon crisp and thick; coffee hot and bottomless. This place is a... More

Nothing much fancy here just darn good food. I have had breakfast, lunch and dinner here many times and the food is always great as is the service. Friday nights they usually have a steak special that is just awesome.

Stopped on my way to Santa Fe for an early dinner and Cooks seemed 'nostalgic'...and it definitely is. Décor reminded me of a simpler time and other than the seasonal fly, was clean and well maintained. My waitress was friendly and very prompt. I ordered off the Senior Menu and it was a huge meal for a reasonable price. The... More

We ate at Cooks because it was convenient to the motel we were staying at. We had hamburger steak which was very tasty but dry like it was 95% fat free. I guess that's good for you but it is like eating cardboard. I had french fries, they were good. My wife had mashed potatoes and gravy which was more... More

Located on the east side of town in a truck stop, this casual eatery is successful because of great easy going service and always consistently great food. The chicken enchiladas are so good because of the creamy cheese sauce on top. Breakfast anytime too if you have kids that only want a pancake. Price is reasonable and coffee is on!... More

If you enjoy just good old fashioned "truck stop" food this is the best. It's casual, very! But they know you by name, they remember what you like and the accommodate you in every way possible. Love having breakfast anytime of day and vice-verse, a burger or steak for breakfast what ever you want!
