Wait to be seated...quicklyPrompt pleasant service-Order arrived with lightening speed and my coffee cup never saw the halfway mark.Tasty huevos rancheros even if it was just a little bit soupy.Crispy bacon was perfect.Good atmosphere.Good teamwork there- Even though the place was busy the teamwork is why my coffee cup stayed full.

Stopped to eat breakfast on a road trip and definitely wasn't disappointed. My brother and I both had the enchiladas with eggs and it came with shredded hashbrowns, beans and a tortilla. It was so delicious! My boyfriend had the biscuits and gravy with shredder hashbrowns and two big sausage links. He said it was amazing! The menu is extensive and everything looked so good. We look forward to stopping by there again next time we are passing through.

Chicken fried steak was delicious! It will be all I order from this point on. Hard to find a good Chicken fried steak. Thank you Railway

Stopped in for breakfast on our way out of town. Had a bit of a wait, but was well worth it. Food was served fairly quickly (considering how packed it was), hot, and large portions! If you're in Gallup, you just gotta stop in here. And if you're a train'll love it!

Ok ya'all, if you're ever in Gallup I highly recommend you stop by Route 66 Railway Cafe! It was delish! It had good reviews online so we though we'd try it for our last vacation breakfast before heading out of town. Pulled into a packed parking lot so we expected a wait, but no we walked in the door and were seated immediately. The service was amazing by everyone, including our waitress Val. Unlimited coffee refills, great options on the menu and the plates were packed. The food was so delicious. 5 stars for sure!

Another hidden charm on historic route 66. Local place with local good food and great staff. Just a fun place.


Very good food. I had a chicken fried steak with milk gravy and a baked potato and salad. Potato could have been cooked alittle longer. I like mine soft. Sopapilla was cold should have brought it after we ate our meal. Husband had a Mexican plate.

We are passing through gallup New Mexico and staying at a hotel down the street. We wanted a restaurant that was close and had great reviews. The Railway café did not disappoint. Incredible food, delivered very fast, exceptionally friendly staff all working very hard. Huge servings great prices. We can personally recommend the French toast, biscuits and gravy all the eggs were great the ham was very yummy. Bacon cooked perfection.

Stopped by recently with my wife on our way to Las Vegas. So glad we picked this place to eat. One of the best burritos I've had in my life. Sure hit the spot. I'll remember if we make the trip again.

The BNSF burrito is the best. I also like the open face chili burgers and the biscuits and gravy combo. Breakfast is served all day.

Shows this restaurant as permanently closed, but it is open. Traveling through Gallup and wanted a breakfast burrito. A first I was going to just grab it to go, but went a head and dined in. I was glad I did. What a great little restaurant with a good small town atmosphere and railroad theme. Sausage and egg breakfast burrito with green chille was excellent, and server was fast and friendly. The constantly was refreshing my coffee, I never got below 3/4 of a cup! Most definitely will stop again when I am traveling again. Just a side note regarding sit down restaurants in Gallup, from my dis discussion with restaurant staff most are closing early at about 7pm since they still have staffing issues as a result of COVID-19. If you travel through Gallup stop and support the small businesses like this restaurant.

Great service, great food, local favorite, really nice people. Very clean. We were looking for a new place to eat between home and Albuquerque, glad we found this. We had breakfast this time-looking forward to lunch next time, and the cobbler.
