We visited this restaurant upon the recommendation of our motel proprietor and were very satisfied. The fare iincludes basic American specialities, sandwiches and salads at very reasonable prices for the quality and portion sizes. The service was very personable and great, too. Our food was served hot and timely. My partner had a loaded cheeseburger that she said tasted homemade and was one of the best she's had in our New Mexico touring. My pastrami sandwich was also "loaded" with meat and fixings and was very good. We chose the onion rings as our "side," and loved them. "Fine dining" this is not - but it's the great "home made," American food many of us grew up with in "fly-over country" USA!

Budget prices but the quality is very good. Big portions and friendly servers. No AMEX card only master card and cash.

Now I can't speak for the desserts but we had frozen patty burgers, extra greasy onion rings, and terrible fettuccine Alfredo. The salad was about the best thing we ate and it was drowned in dressing. Since they are no whiner diner I didn't complain ate my food tipped paid and left.

Left feeling pretty blah. Expecting so much more based on reviews.

Local restaurant with large portions; traditional American home style food; meat loaf was delicious. Easy access from highway and tourist areas.
