Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., kitchen closes at 3 p.m. Breakfast 8:30 to 11 a.m., lunch 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Pie and drinks available during open hours. Well-stocked gift shop featuring Midpoint and Route 66 gifts and souvenirs. Please note that if you are heading east from NM, the time changes at the Texas state line, so you lose an hour.
