“Eat with the Locals in Old Time Diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

We loved the ambiance of this old time diner! The place was filled with "regulars" enjoying their weekday breakfast, which is always a sign of excellent food. Our breakfast was delicious and served by an attentive waitress. Recommend!

“Decent Meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Decent meal, slightly overpriced, but it's the middle of nowhere, so ... it was worthwhile. Comparable to a Denny's.

“One of my few Excellent ratings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

I haven't rated very many locations/resturants/hotels excellent, but this place is filling the square of a 50's style route 66 resturant very well. Stopped here for b'fast after spending the night in Tucumcari. I had read a few reviews on-line about this place and all the good ones proved true. Service, price, and facilities far exceeded my expectations of a 50's style restaurant like this one. I had a pretty standard breakfast, eggs, toast, sausage, and a biscuit and gravy, coffee. Bill was a little over $8.00. Get there early or the newspapers will be gone, I got the last one at around 7:30 AM, and this was mid week. Back to the service, it was right on. I noticed that of the 3 waitresses they didn't hesitate to fill a customer's coffee of a customer who one of the other young ladies were waiting on. I think just during that one stop each one of them did some service for me, took the order, another brought the food out, another brought coffee around, and I forgot who brought the bill to the table, but it was defiantly a team effort.
