Stop and Eat Drive In

110 Paseo de Onate, Espanola, NM - (505) 753-7400
At this vintage drive in, place your order and wait for your number to be called. Food arrives in a white paper bag. The cuisine is definitive New-Mex Drive-In fare, ranging from chile and eggs wrapped in a flour tortilla to tamale plates and “Mexican dinners,” either red or green, and a fine version of Frito pie.

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

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.

Stop & Eat no longer offers carhop service, but it retains all its 1960s car-culture ambience.
