Good food. Thier sopapillas are whole grain, healthier than anyone elses and quite good. The only drawback is that they close a bit early at the end of the day

It's old but well kept, perfectly normal for northern New Mexico. Food is basic diner fare and some excellent spanish selections. The staff is friendly and fun, the place is clean and neat, bright and simple. As far as we can tell (haven't tried everything) anything you order will taste good, fill you up, and leave plenty of change in... More

Whenever I go to church with my family,our first choice is the gold dust cafe up the road, but if there is no room there, we go to the roadrunner. It's quiet, respectful waitresses, and Excellent environment. I always order chocolate milk with pancakes and the food is EXCELLENT.

The breakfast Burrito was the best. It can be smothered with Red or green chili or a combination of both. Good coffee. Good service. Any menu item anytime. The Biscuits and Gravy were good.

I am travel nurse who travels all over the US and I like to stop in "hole-in-the-wall" places. Roadrunner Cafe is a small diner with a very warm talkative staff. Food is the usual diner food plus with some New Mexican flavor added in. The only problem I had here is that the morning cook is inconsistent with attendance. But... More

I love hole-in-the-wall places, so I was curious to see what this place had to offer. I had the special: green Chile cheeseburger. Despite only having six or so customers, my meal took 25 minutes to prepare. The server stopped coming by my area after five minutes of my sitting down. She seemed to be distracted, but not by customers.... More

The breakfast are excellent and served all day. They do a good job on the huevos rancheros, and also serve excellent eggs, hashbrowns, toast, sausage, bacon and pancakes in various combinations. These are also New Mexican fare when served with red and or green chile. All are very inexpensive. I'd give it five stars -- but lunch and dinner, while,... More

This unassuming cafe is on the frontage road at Pojoaque, but the food was great. We had huevos rancheros at 3 pm—breakfast all day. It was just what we needed and real New Mexico huevos. Huevos are 2 eggs on a bed of beans and potatoes with chile mixed in on a tortilla. This version had the potatoes next the... More

Too little service and too much greese. I've reviewed better "Truck Stop" cafes. The food was cold by the time we were served and less than good. There are much better places to dine not far away. We haven't bothered to retrun. Once was enough.

Thank John J
