We dined here a year ago or so and loved it! But upon our return we found that it is closed and for sale...shame, was a good place with great food and friendly staff!

This is a nice little diner and very pleasant staff. Food good for diner food. And they really take care of you. We try to come back for breakfast some time.

We ate here by mistake, as we were looking for another venue. The waitress was very friendly and attentive. The place was clean and not too busy on a Friday evening. The food was pretty average. No real complaints.

Well this is throwback to an era where the Jetsons were on Tv, well maintained or invented nostalgia. You could imagine Betty Boop regularly visiting the restaurant if that were possible. Friendly atmosphere.

Route 66 diner is a gem for those who are nostalgic for the 50s. The breakfast is your typical fare and served quickly. Bathrooms could use some sprucing up.

Fair french toast, and very friendly staff. Good prices. Best juevos rancheros I have ever eaten. Ambience is a bit lacking and don't be put off by the outside—a little landscaping would go a long way.

Stopped into Rt 66 Diner during a visit to Gallup. Very traditional dining in that the restaurant sits on the historic Route 66. Memorabilia displayed from days passed. Food is diverse. We ate the traditional posole bowl. Burgers and fries are offered as well. You...will be satisfied with the food and your pocket book. Prices reasonable. Staff very friendly.More

I used to live in Gallup and return frequently. I know many of the established restaurants but had never been here. The staff was friendly and the food was great!
