Route 66Here's an old sign for the Avalon Restaurant in downtown Albuquerque. This sign no longer depicts the Avalon Restaurant.


UPDATE 09/10 : This old restaurant and bar, which was also once upon a time the Rio Bravo Restaurant, is gone. The signage was removed and the nondescript building is for lease. 12-08

Route 66Here's a nice sign sitting outside the Avalon Restaurant off the old Route 66 in Gallup. This sign also lights up at night.


UPDATE 12/08 : The Avalon Restaurant is gone and the sign has also been removed.


UPDATE 11/20 : There's another restaurant in Gallup that appears to have opened in an old coffee shop looking restaurant. I don't believe the new Avalon Restaurant is affiliated with this old one. The new restaurant is a Chinese restaurant.

Route 66Here's Del's Restaurant, located off old Route 66 in Tucumcari, NM. The big cow on top of the sign is a dead giveaway that you've reached Del's. This restaurant has been around since 1956.




Ranch Kitchen
Gallup, NM

Route 66Just taking a look at this ranch cowboy will want you to come back to the Ranch Kitchen for some dining. This Route 66 establishment had been recommended as a decent steak place in the area.


UPDATE 05/06 : The Ranch Kitchen is now closed. 05-06
