  • We stopped for fuel- LOVED the 'free' auto museum so much I mailed a collectors' model truck to them when I returned HOME! Staff at the SUBWAY restaurant was also courteous, efficient after son & I sp...  more »
  • What a gem of a stop on Route 66. Whether you need a delicious meal, food for the road souvenirs or anything in between, car livers can spend hours drooling over some beautifully restored vintage clas...  more »

  • Top notch travel center on route 66 just after crossing into New Mexico from Texas, with everything you need to get back on the road. Great food at their restaurant/diner. I had the chicken fried steak with green chili stew, and both were excellent!!! Our server was knowledgeable and highly efficient. We never had to wait for refills on our coffee or water. There is also a free classic car museum inside with an incredible collection of vintage cars, motorcycles and classic Route 66 memorabilia.
  • Very cool place to stop & stretch your legs. Clean bathrooms, lots of quick good choices, a Subway, and much larger grocery selection than i usually see at a gas station/truck stop. Would give five stars, but the prices for food & fountain drinks was rather high. The best part of this place is the free museum!! Classic cars -lots of them- old Hollywood & 50's memorabilia, vintage toys, etc. It's AMAZING!
  • They should make this a destination place. Honest to goodness diner with fresh baked goods, big convenience market, Subway, and other foods, AND an awesome museum featuring cars mostly from the 50's, and a boat load of other memorabilia and historical stuff. A fan could easily spend an hour in the museum. And a group can get a great meal at the diner. Check out all the photos!
  • Russell's Truck & Travel Center / Russell's Cafe - Amazing! We stopped in on our way to Arizona from Ohio, and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. The antique car museum was well worth the trip. We have already made plans to stop in on our drive home. Make sure you have an empty stomach, because the portions are huge.
  • Wow! This place is BADASS!! A must stop and take a break kind of place for the family. First of all The Museum is AMAZING!! Before you even walk in the museum they have these old motorcycles that far out. The museum has anything and everything you can of think to do with Route 66 from toys to cars. Yes I said cars real full size rare cars. And don’t forget the souvenirs and the great diner. They have a great selection to choose from. If you need a quick really cool pit stop headed east or west on I-40 just about border of Texas and New Mexico hit this place up you’ll enjoy
