We stopped at May's after cycling from El Paso, lunch was amazing - especially the burgers. We stayed overnight behind the cafe where there are 5 hook ups. Awesome views at sunset and perfect WiFi. Oh, and the pies were pretty special as well!

If you think Cornudas Cafe makes a great burger then I feel so sorry for you. $9 for a very sad terrible burger. I cannot understand all these great reviews. This was easily the worst restaurant and service I have ever experienced.

Although the menu is not printed on fancy paper, the menu has a unique appeal; this nice little place served tasty meals. I had a Cornudas Berger it was very juicy with tomato and onions and green chilly. I do not usually order burgers but...More
