Route 66 Railway Cafe: Great Breakfast on Old Route 66
$8 as of June 2014. This place does not look like much on the outside but the breakfast is good, the portions adequate and the staff friendly. A good place to stop along old Route 66 that looks like it could have been here back then. Hours are 8 AM to 8 PM Monday through Saturday and 9 AM to 2 PM on Sunday. Frequently packed so you may have to wait for a seat. Try it!

Badlands Grill: Great Steakhouse With Other Great Items Too
$17 as of June 2014. This is advertised as the premier steakhouse in New Mexico. Not sure if it is THE best; but it was pretty good. I did not have steak, I had Pasta with Shrimp and a nice sauce. The food was better than average and plentiful enough. The bread and soup was a good prelude to the meal. Decor was nice too. I liked my waitress, Paulette, quite well too. Hours are 4:30 PM to 11 PM Monday through Saturday. Open 4 PM to 9 PM Sundays, March through October. Reservations are recommended on the weekends.

SIZZLER: GREAT SALAD BAR
Friday, September 25, 3009
We got settled into our Motel, now it was time to look for a bite to eat. All along Hwy 491, it was like restaurant row in Gallup. We chose SIZZLER because of its great salad & dessert bar and they had a great Senior offer of 6 ounce steak, all-you-can-eat salad bar and beverages of your choice all for $10.99. The steak was small, but more than enough for me. They even had nachos and cheese at the salad bar, which I love.
Jerry's Cafe: A taste of real mexican food
The food is excellant! The place is a little small but the enchiladas and rellenos are to die for. Have luck trying to get a seat, because the place is so popular with the locals it's almost sure to be full.
Favorite Dish: Green chilie Rellenos. The relleno is a long green chillie stuffed with cheese then fried in an egg and flour batter, and it's served with a green chillie sauce on top and beans with spanish rice on the side
Olympic Kitchen: Greek? In Gallup? You betcha.
An eclectic menu, featuring local dishes, Greek and Italian. Decor kind of chain-like, but the wait staff was very entertaining. Our waiter ended up comparing his hickies with those being sported by one of our group who had just been treated by a Navajo Medicine Man. Long story.
We noticed that Eggplant Parmesan was in the poultry section of the menu. Surely not because of the EGGplant???
Favorite Dish: Greek Salad, excellent.
Garlic Bread, complimentary, and extremely tasty.
Moussaka, almost as good as my own cooking, but with no cleaning up.
Earl's: Homestyle and Handcrafts
The food is OK, but the real attraction of Earl's is that local vendors ply their trade between the tables as you eat. From what I hear, this is almost the only place in Gallup itself where you are likely to be buying from the people who make the jewellry, pots, etc, rather than some middleman. Of course, if you're really concerned about this, you'll likely buy in the Nation itself.
Favorite Dish: The Navajo Taco is very good. The pies look scrumptious, but we were too stuffed to even attempt such a thing.
