Not A Thing Has Changed At This Charming New Mexico Drive-In Since The 1960s

If you’re visiting one of New Mexico’s first cities, Española, you might pass by a little drive-in with a blaring suggestion to stop and grab a bite. Once you pull in and order from this ’50s style drive up, you’ll be hooked for life. Though not much has changed at this old school restaurant in decades, neither has the food that’s made lifelong customers out of many New Mexicans. This roadside stop might not look like much, but the food will have you coming back for more, any time you’re in town.
