Not just an average diner with burgers and fries. Great menu with something for everyone. A lot to look at while you wait, the kids love going in. Great family restaurant.

Nice little café style restaurant, with filling station décor and fun to explore art & artifacts. Food is good, fresh, and inexpensive. They have some Mexican food, but if you like authentic Mexican, this is Not. Nice atmosphere, friendly wait-service. Open for dinner too. Easy to find, parking on Main or 2nd street. If you're here in Summer... you must... More

I am never disappointed when I dine here. The staff are fun and pleasant, the food is always good and today - a southwest diner classic - chili fries with real green chili! Not gringo chili with loads of beans and McCormick chili powder but the real deal green chili with meat and cheese! It sent pleasure molecules running all... More

Two of us had lunch here on a weekend. Overall, we were impressed with the wide selection on the menu and with the food. There were, however, a few missteps in the process. We found service to be a little bit slow, and although the food was quite good, the chili relleno was over-battered for my tast, but otherwise had... More

We really love the food here and it is the only area cafe to offer traditional New Mexican Hatch Chili. We loved all the chow, fire sauces and chili. And, the environment is so much fun with garage and filling station memorabilia covering walls, ceiling, tables and flooring. This is the real thing - don't miss it!

What a marvelous surprise to find this delightful restaurant in Hamilton! The carnitas enchiladas were GREAT! The beans & guacamole were wonderful. The eclectic decor featuring collections of old signs & toy trucks was fun. The place is a great find!

We loved the quaint environment with vintage signs posted throughout and enjoyed the menu offerings very much. What we did not appreciate is a waitress who never greeted us, said hi or thank you or even checked on how we liked our food. There is a particular political bias reflected in the cafe with waitstaff all wearing "Peace, Love and... More
