Best breakfast in Red River! My daughter and wife split a breakfast burrito and I had the traditional eggs, biscuits, gravy and sausage.

“Go here first!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

Shotgun willies is outstanding.

The food here is great, and well priced. Service is fast, and to go orders filled correctly.

They make their own brisket, and if there's anything on the menu that has brisket – order that! I've never before had a smothered green chili burrito that included brisket for breakfast, but after having it one time I had it four days in a row! It is also offered on a big potato for lunch.

The green chili cheeseburgers are good – good size piece of hamburger, and they truly do have good green chili. They have the best onion rings in the state, crest cooked well not soggy.

What makes a difference however, is the owners. They also are usually the ones behind the cash register. They are always there with a smile, and after your second or third visit there, they will probably even remember your name!

After eating here so often, we tried some other restaurants – and always regretted not just going to shotgun willies.

Sitting in the restaurant is booths only, so it isn't good if you want to see more than four people at a time. There are tables outside, and they do good to go orders. Great place for breakfast, great place for lunch.

“Nice Place to Eat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

Small, quick, well priced! The Brisket Burrito was very tasty. Had not had one this good in quite awhile. Ordered it with green chilie, not very hot, but added a little more taste.
