    Centennial Park is a nice little park located along Main Street that was dedicated in 2012, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Arizona becoming a state. The park has a picnic table, a gazebo, several signs giving the history of the town and some old farming equipment like an old wagon and a horse drawn plow from 1900 (photo 2) and a horse drawn mowing machine (photo 3).

    Eagar is a town of about 5000 (up 24% since 2000) located along US Highways 180/191, 60 and Arizona Highway 260 in Eastern Arizona near the New Mexico border. Eagar is part of a larger area called Round Valley. It was first occupied by an Indian tribe, and it is believed that Coronado came through here in 1540. In 1865, Tony Long, a Union scout came through here in 1865 in pursuit of Confederate soldiers.Then in 1877, Mormon settlers A. V. Greer, Harris Phelps, and William J. Flake came to Round Valley and in 1878 the Eagar Brothers donated some land that became "Union Ward". The town of Eagarville was established in 1888 and the "ville" was dropped in 1892.

    $12 as of July 2013. Trail Riders has a menu of steaks, chicken, pork chops and fish along with sandwiches. Meals come with a choice of potatoes, a vegetable, soup or salad bar, and a drink. I had some grilled tilapia with mashed potatoes and green beans with a cup of soup. Portions were pretty good and it was a good value for the price. Service was about average.

    Favorite Dish: The tilapia was average tasting but there was a lot of it.

    Trail Riders is a good restaurant that also has a full bar with a few beers on tap too. It has a few large screen TVs showing sports programs. Not bad, stumbling distance from the motel.

    Dress Code: Casual is fine
