The Finest Diner on Route 66
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? When it comes to Route 66 diners I must say that my vote is for the 66 Diner on old Route 66 in Albuquerque. Just look at it! As the winter approaches, sunset light in Albuquerque takes on strong blue-magenta tones that offer the perfect backdrop for the neon-style lighting that adorns the 66 Diner. It is at its most photogenic in this light. If you ever want to capture this charming building in the best possible light, this is it. From late fall to winter this is what you will see on most evenings just after sunset.
Oh, by the way, you go to the 66 Diner for the food as well! The decor is classic retro diner, and the green chile cheeseburgers and legendary shakes will have you singing along with the golden oldies on the jukebox. Great food, great fun! 1405 Central Ave NE, Albuquerque, NM 87106
