What a hoot

The food is very good. We had soup and sandwich. We loved reading all of the cute little sayings even in the bathrooms. Someone has a great sense of humor!

June 1, 2015: We wanted to have dinner here because it was so convenient to our motel. After a long day hiking in the Guadalupe Mountains and a trek through the Big Room in Carlsbad Caverns we were really ready to chow down. As we approached the diner, we could see there were no cars in the lot. When we... More

This is a nice lunch stop with very friendly staff on the main drag of Carlsbad. I've been twice, and both times had a sandwich from the menu. They were tasty and fresh. I also had a chicken pepper pot soup as my side which was extremely good and spicy. Meals were served fast and there was no waiting for... More

We met two Carlsbad cops on their way out, as we were going in. Started chatting, so I asked if the place was any good. One cop told us it's the best place in Carlsbad (that tells you something, it's just a diner!) and he said, "Always eat where the cops eat!" Anyway, we did have an excellent lunch. Both... More

My fiancé and I were looking for a place to get coffee, maybe an appetizer, and review some notes before a meeting. We drove up to the "diner" at 1:38 pm. The front of the restaurant is mainly windows, so I watched the waitress see me drive up then immediately walk over to front door and flip the open sign... More

The staff is friendly and helpful. They have several interesting and unusual choices on their menu. I am willing to bet this is the only place in all of Carlsbad you can get Rocky Mountain Oysters. The cost is on the lower side, and they have a good location, easy to find. Your order comes to the table quickly. I... More

It doesn't look like much but oh my goodness! We were seated with a smile immediately. Our drinks came shortly after that. We both order the senior meal which included the drink for only $9.50. Our salads came out crispy & cold on a cold plate. We were offered fresh ground pepper on it...surprise no 1. I had the steak... More
