I eat here when on business in Gallup. Homemade traditional NM food and great service. The only downfall is the vendors who walk table to table selling handcrafted Native American jewelry- some just pass by after you say no thank you - some seem to push their goods. I just wanted to eat and not be rude- a tent outside... More

Had a quick overnight stopover in Gallup and wanted "Mexican Food" and a margarita to end the day. This place was easy to reach from the hotel. Service was friendly and the food tasted good. Filled up on homemade guacamole, which is what I wanted. The margarita was not the best I've ever had, but I have no complaints. People... More

The margaritas were a mix and not good and the good part was the waitress took it off the bill. The food was not good. Would not go back here even though it seems like an old resturant

We were driving through Gallop after a trip to the Grand Canyon and decided to stop for a late lunch. The restaurant is right on Historic Route 66 and since we were trying to experience the Mother Road on our vacation it seemed fitting. We were warmly greeted and seated quickly. We both ordered the chile rellenos and were not... More

I have gone to this fine restaurant for years, I have to say Archie and his wonderful family have done a great justice for Gallup for putting out some great food over the years. I don't live in Gallup any more but every time I'm there I enjoy one of the things I love of my roots. Thank you,

Went with the recommendations from Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed! Chips and salsa were good. Staff very friendly. I had the best chicken burrito ever, and it was almost as big as my head. Husband had shredded beef tacos. Said they were delicious. He thought the beans and rice weren't that good though. People did stop by to sell... More

Nice to get Mexican food like our Mother made. Chili is genuine New Mexico chili. The bischochitos are wonderful also when they are available.
