What a terrific find thanks to Trip Advisor!!! The reviews were all so positive so we had to check it out. Gerald and the crew were so nice and welcoming!!! The menu is eclectic... Burgers and a good mix of New Mexican items from which to choose. The owner's daughter said they opened in '67... And it still has all... More

When I have the time to, I always hit Stop & Eat for lunch whenever I am passing through Española. They make a GREAT Green Chile Cheeseburger!

We stop here every time we are in New Mexico. I always get the burger with New Mexico green chile. The taquitos are the best. My wife got the Tamale plate. Like I said we always stop at the Stop and Eat Drive-in. This place is locally owned and very old school. The people that work there are always so... More

I had heard their green chile cheeseburger was good. I did not see it on the menu but they were happy to prepare one for me. It was as good as I had heard. By the way of the addresses listed on Tripadvisor match the one on the receipt and I only found it by accident .

The food is okay. There is only so much variation with this type of food. I think locals are a little brainwashed because this place has been around for so long. It's like they don't venture out of the valley and taste really good food elsewhere. Good grub, but not great. Last time I went my wife was having cravings... More

If you truly want a classic drive in experience then go here. The burgers are awesome! My husband says the fries are the best fries ever. I had heard about the rolled tacos but when I tried them they exceed their reputation. These things are very tasty we get them every time we come here as an add on to... More

It may not look like much but wait till you get a taste of the burgers and fries. Friendly service and comfort food to satisfy the most picky "diner lovers" This has been a corner stone business for generations and they are proud of their business, food and service. It is a place to stop for that filling breakfast when... More
