“Great for breakfast and inexpensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

The breakfast are excellent and served all day. They do a good job on the huevos rancheros, and also serve excellent eggs, hashbrowns, toast, sausage, bacon and pancakes in various combinations. These are also New Mexican fare when served with red and or green chile. All are very inexpensive.

I'd give it five stars -- but lunch and dinner, while, inexpensive are so-so.

This is definitely a place where the locals eat -- patrons frequently know each other. But everyone is welcoming to strangers.

It is on the west frontage road of 84/285. When you spot it, turn (west) in at the next exit and take the frontage back the the Roadrunner. These instruction work both when you are going north and when you are going south.

“A find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

This unassuming cafe is on the frontage road at Pojoaque, but the food was great. We had huevos rancheros at 3 pm—breakfast all day. It was just what we needed and real New Mexico huevos. Huevos are 2 eggs on a bed of beans and potatoes with chile mixed in on a tortilla. This version had the potatoes next the huevos, but the chile was good (and somewhat hot). The cafe is next to the Roadrunner RV park along US 285.

“Better Cafes are not much further up or down the road!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Too little service and too much greese. I've reviewed better "Truck Stop" cafes. The food was cold by the time we were served and less than good. There are much better places to dine not far away. We haven't bothered to retrun. Once was enough.

“Good place for diner food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Sixteen of us descended upon this place for dinner (not much else open). The typical diner food (breakfast, fried chicken, fried shrimp, etc) was very good. The whole wheat sopapillas were excellent. The kids who ordered "new mexican" food were a little disappointed. With such a large group on a holiday, the orders came out in shifts as I believe there was one cook. The food was freshly prepared, at least.
