You have to drive into town about 2 miles away from hotels but not a bad drive. They have always been open past 8:00PM.

Good Mexican Food. We had combination plates and a very enjoyable dinner. The beers were good and the staff was very friendly.

We were tired and hungry after an all-day drive, and this restaurant was across the street from the motel, so I took a chance. UGH. The chicken burritos were made from some sort of ground-up chicken-like mush, not pieces or shredded chicken, but a soft, stuffing-like substance. Terrible!

On our first trip to Gallup, we asked a shop owner where they recommended for reasonably priced, good Mexican food, and she said their favorite was La Barraca. It was easy to find right on old Route 66, and we were greeted by friendly staff. The food was very good, we all had the days special, steak and enchilada with green chili sauce. They also serve beer and wine. It was a tad pricey, but no more than any other place we ate while there, and the food was some of the best. I would definitely recommend ... Also, while we were eating, the shop owner that recommended it to us came in with her husband for supper as well ... Guess she wasn't lying!
