The food and service here are nothing to write home about. What makes the place interesting is the Route 66 history.

We stopped for lunch before attending a play at the KiMo. What should have been easy selections to serve took 45 minutes while other patrons who ,came in after we did, ordered, were served and left. We waited and waited. The server was unapologetic. Once the food arrived it was tasty but couldn't be fully enjoyed due to time constraints. We will not return.

Whether you want burgers, sandwiches or Mexican/New Mexican dishes in a casual, comfortable atmosphere (with no loud music or TV blaring) in downtown Albuquerque, this cafe is the spot to go. It has been around for a long time - for good reason. Their chili, both red and green, is yummy and their burgers are great. They serve lots of other menu items, but these are my favorites.

My wife and I had attended the Woman's March and stooped at Lindy's for a bite after we left. We ordered hamburgers and an order of fries. The hamburgers were great--almost more than either of us could finish. Next time we will skip the fries although they were fine.

As the Woman's March broke up, the place completely filled and pretty much overwhelmed the waitstaff. But such is life. Our waitress could not have been nicer.

Stopped in in the mid-afternoon after getting to town on a mid-day flight. This is about as laid back of a place as you can find. No one was in a hurry and service was inattentive. This wasn't a problem as I had nothing else on my schedule for the afternoon but could otherwise be a definite turn off.

The food though was outstanding. I ordered up a green chile burger with just enough heat to it cooked just right. It's certainly worth a stop in if you aren't in a hurry to get anywhere. Quirky decor and a relaxed feel.
