I have seen their sign for their museum,(located inside the travel center), before in traveling to/from Texas to New Mexico, but until recently never stopped by to check it out, until recently, and very glad I did. My first thought, was oh well there's a few old cars to look at but nothing special. I could not have been more... More

We stopped in for lunch on our way to Las Vegas. We sat down and WAITED far too long for the waitress. She finally came over to take our order. When my food came, it was not as it should have been. I motioned the waitress over and explained the problem to her. Not only was she rude, she just... More

My husband and I stopped here while on a twelve-hour drive. We got decent food at the Subway and really enjoyed going through their free car museum. The whole place is like a shrine to Americana. A likenss of Marilyn Monroe graces the entrance to the women's washroom and one of Elvis Presley the entrance to the men's. You can... More

We combined a stop for lunch at Russell's Cafe with a visit to the onsite Route 66 museum. The cafe is a classic looking 1960's diner, and the food was okay. The museum was definitely the highlight of the stop. There were over 2 dozen cars, mostly 50's and 60's module in beautiful condition. But they had tons of other... More

Wow the food is good in the diner. I think it tastes better because you don't expect it. My friend ordered an omelet with roasted potatoes and pancakes, it looked just delicious. I ordered the crispy chicken tacos with a cup of green chili soup. It was very satisfying and just what I love! It was fun to browse the... More

The museum is fabulous. Stopped at several car museum along Route 66 and by far the best! Admission is by donation and all the money goes to a local organization. Great fun! Make some time to see the museum and eat lunch/dinner.

We were driving from Albuquerque to Amarillo- this is a cool place to stop because it's more than just a rest stop....it has a free museum! Neat to take a break, stretch our legs and check out the old cars.

Headed West on I-40 through New Mexico one morning and was looking for a place to have breakfast. Stopped here and had some very nice pancakes, biscuits and gravy in a 50s/60s style diner. Discovered that they had a free museum in the back of the store and what a surprise! There are a lot of old cars and antiques... More

This summer our family was traveling west for a family reunion. In route, I needed a restroom. With the modern conveniences of video games & movies in the vehicle, our children rarely want to leave the car (unlike when I was young and begged to stop just to get out...). So i was going to run in and out quickly.... More
