We called in here for breakfast as we were staying down the road at the El Rancho hotel on our Route 66 road trip. Good choice of breakfast, great service and tasty food - recommended.

We loved Earl’s, from the enchiladas to their verde to their rellenos to their sopapillas!! We were there on a Saturday and folks had tables set up outside with handmade items, mostly jewelry, for sale. Loved it and will return!!
