We stopped in here for dinner after a day of hiking the Gold Dust Trail. They had BBQ pork ribs on special that day and they were out of this world. Friendly service, low prices and excellent food. A great place to cool your heels.

Hidden Gem along the highway, worth stopping at. The atmosphere is average but the food more than makes up for it. If you are one of those people who like homemade pie, it is a must stop place.

There isn't really any choice for dinner in Glenwood. This place will keep you from going hungry but you won't write home about the food. It is mediocre "road" food - weak salad bar, New Mexican menu, slow service.
