Stop and Eat Drive In

110 Paseo de Onate, Espanola, NM - (505) 753-7400
Posted By Christie Bundy on 10/14/2012 11:28:00 AM
I recently found this great little place. Maybe it doesn't look so hot on the outside -- it's an old drive-in with a gravel parking lot -- but it's clean and has a decent restroom.

The best part is the food, especially the hamburgers and the hand-made burrito. The burrito holds the best refried beans, green chile, onions, and cheese around. The tortillas are the best around, too! My husband and I plan trips there just for the burritos (we live about 40 miles away). They are so good I still haven't tried the posole or the enchiladas, but I will one day.

I didn't like the lemonade, but they have a large drinks menu, and I'm sure you'll find something you like. Besides the great food and low prices the people who work there are very nice and friendly. I highly recommend the Stop and Eat drive-in if you're in Espanola, NM.

Green chile and melted cheese sing harmony with a beef patty in this New-Mex classic sandwich.

Stop & Eat no longer offers carhop service, but it retains all the flavor of mid-20th century car culture.

People in the Southwest love Fritos pie, an inspired combination of chili and Fritos chips. This one lacks the traditional garnish of shredded cheese.

Stop & Eat isn't open at breakfast time, but the egg burrito makes a good mid-day brunch (a word NOT on the menu here!). Note the low-low prices.
