We ate late on the evening of Fathers Day. EVERY staff person was friendly and checked on us multiple times. We were served fresh, delicious salsa with chips that were warm,thick, and plentiful. We ordered green chile chicken enchiladas and told our waitress we were going to share. Instead of bringing an extra plate, it was divided in the kitchen. The green chile was yummy. The rice and beans were cooked to perfection. The chicken was plentiful. I'm not sure how either of us could have eaten an entire plate. As we were at the end of our meal, one of the waitresses asked if we wanted a free piece of cake. It's chocolate she said. We agreed. She told us it was for Fathers Day. The cake was moist and flavorful. Our meal, for 2 people was $6.99. We left a nice tip.
We were so pleased with our experience that we returned for breakfast. Once again everyone was happy and friendly. Our coffee was brought quickly and refilled often. We ordered huevos rancheros- green chile, to share. Once again our meal was split in the kitchen. There were beans and hash brown potatoes as sides. A fresh tortilla for each of us. The over medium eggs were just right. We knew it was a favorite local spot when we saw the table of older men gathered to spread the events of the weekend. We call that "a table of knowledge". If we find ourselves in Bloomfield again we will eat here. The bathroom was clean (as was the entire restaurant). There's a nice mural on the hall leading to the restrooms.

The interior needed renovation. The chicken was overcooked, vegetables over cooked (mushy). The person at Super 8 recommended this to us, not happy with the recommendation.

A typical small-town diner - spacious, friendly staff, good food and lots of it. What makes Sonya's special is they cook real New Mexican dishes, which to me is one of the great joys of visiting New Mexico.

We visited for supper, then the next morning for breakfast. Food was great both times. If you're in the area, Sonya's is a good place to try.

We chose to eat Mexican food and it was good- there are not many places to choose from in Bloomfield and most are just like Sonyas. The food was better than we thought it would be and a value for what you got.

Very friendly staff. Be sure to try the prime rib when on the special. Good hearty american style breakfast. I would eat here several times a week when I worked in the are.
