The red sauce was hot, didn't have a lot of flavor, just hot. I had to scrape it off my hot dog because there was a ton of it on top. The fries were very good though.

This is a very nice little retro restaurant. The atmosphere is true to the 50-60s era Route 66 diner. They offer a good variety of Mexican and American cuisine. I had the Mexican combo meal. Good but prepare your mouth for some heat! Our waitress was excellent, always pleasant and helpful. Definitely worth a visit.

Believe the good reviews here. We loved the Indian fry bread and the pinto bean stuffed sopapilla! Waitress was wonderful. Guacamole outstanding. Loved that so many from the Navajo nation were there, too. Don't choose anywhere else!!

I've eaten here twice now. The burgers and fresh fries are some of the best, but the Carne Adovada is the bomb (and I've sampled alot!). Homemade Guac with the (free) chips and salsa too. Can't wait to try more selections in the future.

We decided to try this place based on previous reviews but it did not wow us. I had the taquitos, my husband had the beef tacos and the kids had chicken fingers and fries. It was not terrible but not great either. The staff was very friendly and pleasant but the food was just ok.

We were in Gallup for the night / and decided on Aurelia's based on T.A. reviews. I had the fried chicken / my husband had the pork chop. We both thought our dinners were very good.

The service was friendly and crackerjack fast, with complimentary nachos and dessert. Tacos and enchiladas were great.

My favorite is the taquitos. They provide them with guacamole & sour cream & your choice of chile. They are wonderful and the portions are plentiful so you can never finish your plate. The staff is also very very friendly!!

Asked locals where to eat and they pointed me to Aurelia's for the stuffed sopapilla. I loved the diner decor and the food was so good I almost fell off my stool! I was sitting next to an elderly Navajo woman and wanted to converse with her but couldn't catch her eye while she was eating. After she was done... More
