Being the avid watcher of Food Networkâs Diners, Drive-ins and Dives (Short: Triple D) I was keen to go to the Standard Diner which featured 11 years ago on the show. The diner was only 5 minute walk from our hotel (purely by chance). It has a sort of retro, art deco style. Inside it is rather quite large with further retro decoration and exposed bricks. The menu is small for a diner which I think is a good thing. Service was super friendly and quick. They have a decent selection of craft beers as well. We chose the tempura fried ahi tuna and their âflagshipâ best seller since DDD rolled into town: The DDD Meat Loaf. Both was great. The tuna was still rare inside and came with a sticky rice cake. The meat loaf came with smashed potatoes, brussels sprouts and a nice gravy. Unfortunately they had run out of the lemon meringue pie but that would have been greed anyway. We returned the next morning for breakfast. Service was friendly but a bit on the slow side. We had biscuits and gravy, a pancake and the avocado toast. I know their forte is probably on New Mexico breakfast fare but I just canât do burritos for breakfast. The food was ok. The pancake was ginormous! The biscuits were better at the Denver Biscuit Company in Colorado springs.They could invest in fixing some of the booths. They look pretty worn out. And I am not crazy about carpets in restaurants (therefore only very good and not excellent) But the food was very good and the service extremely friendly. So I would come back for that meat loaf anytime.

50's Diner on Historic Route 66
What a blast stopping at this place. It's like stepping back in time to when I was a teenager. Guess that's the idea. Loads of fun memorabilia inside and out. Took the wife and granddaughter her for lunch while we were in town for the 2019 Balloon Fiesta. Mainly stopped for the much ballyhooed milkshakes. No understatement to say they may be the best in New Mexico - cold, thick, served directly from the metal blender container directly into an old fashioned tall milkshake-style glass. Can you say brain freeze? My wife and I topped off the shakes with a vegetarian hamburger with all the fixings of an all meat burger and of course fries. Great! The granddaughter loved her milkshake and the grilled cheese sandwich, also served with fries. A fun place serving traditional 1950's - 60's diner food and of course nostalgia. The staff was friendly, helpful and attired in appropriate diner uniforms. They added some great fun to the experience. This place is well worth a stop even if you weren't a teenager during the 50's and 60's.Thanks for stopping by the Diner Charles, and bringing your family along! We're so glad it was a great experience for everyone, and hope to see you again soon!

Heard about the must have green chile burger, it really didnât do anything for me. Nothing stood out about it. I did try the Bleu Max burger because the wife couldnât finish it. It was outstanding, flavors popped, you could taste the flat iron on the burger. I would eat it again. Service was spotty and not tentative to small details like bringing napkins. I would go back but there somethings that need working on to âwinâ me.
