Driving through New Mexico on the way to the Balloon Festival we stopped in this cute little place. Definitely a wonderful retro feeling. Food was hot and prompt. Even the restrooms have some pretty trippy stuff in them.

Living in Gallup and having to make the trek to Albuquerque on a regular basis, it was nice to have a friend recommend this diner. There are no signs that I am away of but this diner is definitely worth the stop.
