Where's the best Huevo Rancheros?

Recommended Posts

We will be vacationing in Prescott, Arizona this Memorial Day and traveling along I-40 from OK to AZ and then back via Monument Valley, Chama, and Dodge City. Where can I find the best Huevos Rancheros on that route??? The Village Inn in Prescott had the best in that area but they went bye-bye after I left in 1994.

 

FYI, I like mine with hash browns and green salsa.

I can’t give you much information but I drove through Monument Valley a few years ago and as you come out of the Colorado River and climb there is a little restaurant and motel there and the Huevos Rancheros were outstanding. The place was run by a Navajo family but I believe their morning chef was a Mexican. Very scenic location. When ever my wife and I are in the Sedona area  there is a little restaurant in Oak Creek Village (part of Sedona) that has excellent Huevos Rancheros also. They are on the south side just as you come into town, Miley’s Cafe is what they are called, I believe.

Let me take you to Casa Perez, about two blocks from my house some seven miles from Prescott (in Prescott valley), but you'll have to let me know when you'll be in town.  There are several others here, too.

This sounds like the perfect way to start a day before we go on the Cumbres Toltec RR. Thanks!

We may just do that. There used to be a restaurant in PV (We lived there in 1987 before moving to Chino Valley) that had a Hawaiian Delight waffle we loved. Last time we were through there everything had changed so I have no idea if the place exists anymore.

I will have to see how the day is progressing but that sounds like a good lunch spot.

On the C&TS, yes. We have ridden the D&S several times, the Royal Gorge RR once, and last Christmas we rode the BNSF from Chicago to Flagstaff and back. We hope to do that again this Christmas.

Of the two sections, which would be the best to see? I assumed from Chama to Osier.

As pretty as Cuba is, we will be headed towards Dodge City from Chama.

Chama to Osier is fantastic high country scenery and mountain railroading at its extreme. The down side is that you don't get to pass thru the Garfield tunnel and over Phantom curve, which are to the east of Osier back to Antonito. If you did choose to ride the complete length, we have found its nice to take the motor coach from Chama over to Antonito in the morning. Board at Antonito and ride back to Chama. Lots of nice lodging in and around Chama. Antonito is weak on accommodations IMO.

I-40 runs through ABQ so you could eat there.  I quit eating at the Village Inns because they replaced the grated cheddar on their eggs with American process cheese.  I like the Range Cafe.  There is one on Menaul Blvd near the intersection of I-40 and I-25.  Give them a try.

In Albuquerque there are many, like Monroe's at 6051 Osuna rd. N.E. and a newer location at 1520 Lomas Blvd N.W.

Historic Old Town by the square has La Placita and La Hacienda.

 

From the interstate these are easy to get to

 

I grew up there and went to school there, I left in 1988 Have fun, besure to lock your vehicle, Pecos River Bob

Monroe's has a good rep.  ABQ does not regarding auto thefts: https://www.koat.com/article/abq-has-highest-auto-theft-rate-in-u-s/22135418.

And meth labs. Seems like every time I’m down there, somebody’s house blows up.

We are driving an RV with a dingy, so they will need to be after we get set up in an RV park or something that caters to truckers.
