This Gas Station Turned Diner Will Be Your New Favorite Spot To Fill Up Your Tummy

When traveling along the historic Route 66, three things are certain: gas stations, diners, and the unexpected. It’s not too often you hit a trifecta by finding all three in the same location but there is one spot right here in New Mexico that takes up this challenge.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

The diner is open daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. You can find details about the menu, make reservations, and find out about dining specials by visiting its website or Facebook page.
