What a great diner in ABQ! Service was fast and the food was delicious. I had the cold meatloaf sandwich and fries. Some of the best fries in town! My husband had the green chile burger and said it was fantastic. We also shared an Elvis milkshake....peanut butter and banana. It was really tasty. I don't want to forget the crispy onion rings, lightly battered and piled high on our plate. Bring your appetite; the portions are big! Will definitely dine there again.

This came highly recommended by a friend that we eat here on our way through. We had the green chile burger. The burger was good and tasty. The service was good and we enjoyed our lunch.

We ate at the Owl Cafe after a long day of activities.It was really cute both inside and outside and the food was great. I had the green chile cheeseburger, and others in our party had a variety of great foods.The vanilla green chile milkshake and chocolate red chile milkshake were unique and delicious. The atmosphere was that of a classic diner, and my husband even played two Smokey Robinson songs for me on the old fashioned jukebox. What a fun dining experience!

The patio was a perfect location for our family group which included a toddler. We arrived for Father's Day Sunday lunch and were seated fairly quickly. Some of the service initially was lacking. I think it was a hostess rather than a server that first took care of us since she kept disappearing to ask questions. The Mexican items were ok, not great, but the milkshakes are out of this world!
