“It's OK not busy at 5 am”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

I stopped by at 5 am. I ordered a Carne A burrito an OJ and a cinnimon roll.

The order process went well the order taker walked me through it.
The OJ is very good, every thing else barely ok.
The burrito is big enough, the roll was crap....is that too strong a word?
it was dried out, hard and without the frosting on it would resemble a rope of turd, you had to cut this thing with a knife and it wasn't easy....skip the roll. Save the calories for the OJ.

Sorry I know it's legendary...it's way over rated.

“Worth a trip”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Iconic Central Ave restaurant - it's not so much the food as the atmosphere. Go on a weekend morning and get a huge sugary sweet roll and coffee, or enchiladas. VERY fast service.

“Quick, good cheap food, and a lot of it!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

This time we came through NM with family. Stopped for dinner. Our kids very impressed. Lots of food, quick cafe style service. Great history too and almost open all hours. We'll stop by whenever in town. I say scenic view, for Rt 66 and people watching.
