Excellent quick service, great lunch.

The food is always quick and as ordered. I enjoy the good service. It is always busy and may get a little loud at times but I can deal with that, since the food is good.

The food is always good as is the service and the prices are reasonable. It is a breakfast and lunch restaurant and is always busy.

every time we go to New Mexico we eat here. We always get enchiladas and they always taste good. Can be crowded but it is worth it.

The place looked a bit sketchy from the outside, but the parking lot was packed, and it was 10:30 am on a weekday. Inside, the place was much nicer, clean, and the food and service was quite good. We ended up eating there twice during our stay in Carlsbad.

My work requires me to eat an early breakfast (6 am) and I am always pleased by the meal and service at this restaurant. Good basic food (eggs, pancakes, omelette, etc.) served by friendly, efficient wait staff at a reasonable price.

We had breakfast at Pecos River Cafe on the way out of town. We were seated right away. The service was excellent and the food was good. I had the huevos rancheros. Be warned that the hot green chilies are hot - but they were good.

Lots of friendly staff get your meal out quickly. Patty melt was good, steak fries were great, the shrimp just okay. We got a gigantic cinnamon roll to go-not to heavy on the cinnamon, but lots of yummy icing. Would stop again if I was this way again. They are not open for dinner.

We stopped in for lunch and knew we had probably hit a local treasure because of all the people who were waiting to be seated. We might have walked right back out if we hadn't noticed how the wait staff was hustling to take care of everyone. We waited 10-15 minutes to be seated, but within 10 minutes of that... More

Consistently good food. Prompt service. Always crowded but wait time is minimal. Wish they would expand their hours. So far, they have the best Reuben sandwich I have found in Carlsbad.

The service has always been good and the food has been the same. They also have a wide range of food to choose from. Unfortunately they are only open during the week and do not stay open late. Also their setting area can get a little crammed. But in all a great place to have a meal.
