  • This summer our family was traveling west for a family reunion. In route, I needed a restroom. With the modern conveniences of video games & movies in the vehicle, our children rarely want to leave th...  read more »
  • We only stopped for gas and bathrooms, and were surprised to find a very need stop. The gift shop was huge and had something for everyone, the food section was also huge and had a great variety, there...  read more »
  • I love everything here. At first sight it may seem just another gas station, but it's just till you get in! This Center has the largest exhibition of classic cars along the Route 66, is definitely a throwback to the past. Well worth doing a meal at this location, it was one of the best meals I've ever done in 18 days for travel Route 66. I ate Mexican and tacos were the best I've ever tasted, heard by the employee of a museum that people from distant lands travel that restaurant to have a meal and no wonder because the portions are very generous and the food is very good. The nachos are the best I've ever tasted. Is mandatory stop! It was there that I first saw cowboys.

  • We are planning a trip down Route 66 in our small Mitsubishi electric car. New Mexico is a challenging environment for finding places to plug in and charge. We have been really happy about the friendliness Of most folks in helping us plug in, since we only require a 110 volt regular plug. We pay for the electricity we Use. No friendliness or help at Russells. Since they were highly recommended by a friend, we called to ask them if they had a regular outlet to plug into. They didn't just say no, they were rude and quite upset that we even asked. We offered them a large amount of money to pay for the elecricity and they were rude again. Russells is the ONLY business in New Mexico that was not nice to us when we asked. Highly disappointed. We will NEVER stop there on our frequent trips west, whether we are traveling in our electric or gas car. Sad to Find such an unfriendly business in one of our favorite states!
  • Awesome place to grab a bite to eat, just minutes before Texas. Get your last taste of green chili. Because everything after this stop is jalapenos and curry. 😭. Transporters please do your logs before proceeding, as a resident of NEW MEXICO. Don't chance it. Cops are cool but after your caught in your bed of lies, your done...#169
  • Cool place to visit. There is a car museum that you just have to see. The man & lady who greeted me were an awesome team. Told me if I needed anything, just to whistle and they'd help. You have to stop in. Their dining is a version of the 60's. Red and white all around.
  • Great people. Awesome place to wonder around and see classic cars, collectibles... the people are very friendly... and of course the food is great... perfect spot in the middle of nowhere!!
  • The place is in the desert - a bright spot in a desolate area that must attract fuel-needing travelers, truckers, folks wanting snacks a restaurant experience, and one more group of visitors: insects. Me? I stopped for fuel. 5-stars. Walked their convenience store that was well stocked, clean and a handy resource. 5 Stars. The museum is a nice touch on Highway 66 - Kudos - but I was is a bit of a hurry to complete this leg of my trip. 5 Stars for the passion and effort. I decided to take half an hour for a late breakfast. Sat in a booth by the window with 2 others. Bad choice. The persistent flies are attracted to the windows and their brethren beating themselves to death on the outside trying to get in. These flies are on steroids and will land on you, your food, your coffee cup, and it is a battle. I killed three. Slamming the table distracted other patrons. If I stop here again, I will choose a stand alone table away from the windows. Where I live the flies are less aggressive and my young 12 year old has my permission to hunt down any invaders that get in our home with a battery-powered ZAPPER. Maybe a kid / Intern here at this insect-attracting bright spot in the desolate desert oasis stop should be tasked to FLY DUTY.
