Always good down home food here, and plenty of it at a very reasonable price. They all Native American vendors to circulate through the restaurant offering their merchandise for sale. An interesting experience, and you get to see a variety of goods. They are all very respectable and not the least bit pushy. I recommend anyone passing through Gallup to... More

We ate at Earl's and had the small Mexican combo and patti melt. Both were even better than we remember in the past. The service was super. Every time that we have eaten here we have had Native American servers and the service has always been very good. Our server was Jamie T. and just like before service was fast... More

when I go to earls, there is a friendly warm atmosphere. For breakfast I love getting the #2 special (eggs and sausage) or the breakfast burrito. You cant go wrong with either one

I have been here several times traveling through Gallup. They never have disappointed the portions are large a large variety of food and Southwest flair. Vendors walk around selling their beautiful hand made Indian jewelry and other items.

We were staying overnight in Gallup and had read a billboard along the highway telling about Earl's. After we checked into our motel it was time for dinner. We were welcomed as soon as we walked in. Our waiter, Will, was very prompt and our dinner selection was liver and onions and roast beef. It was so delicious and their... More

Earl's is a diner with an extensive menu. Very family friendly, no alcohol, food is casual but good. A lot of locals eat here. The best part is that Earl's allows native americans to sell their crafts table to table. You can just wave them away if you don't want to be bothered, but we loved looking at the wares.... More

I had the Navaho tacos and when they say enough for 2, they mean it. It was excellent! It's fun to have Native Americans coming around. If you shake your head no, they just move on. This is a fun restaurant and a Gallup landmark. Highly recommend!

We arrived in Gallup last for lunch. I had researched restaurants open for lunch on Sunday. After driving by the first two we picked online, we decided to try Earl's as there were many cars parked there. Even with the large crowd, we were promptly seated and greeted. The courteous and friendly staff had us served in short order. Yes,... More

There aren't any mid to upscale dining places in Gallup, but there's got to be something better than this. We stopped for lunch. You have to navigate through several folks selling jewelry to get in the front door. After sitting down, the jewelry vendors come inside and stop at your table . . . really, while we're trying to order... More
