Southwest Diner

6

Good morning, friends! Happy Friday! I’m so happy this week is over. Bring on the weekend!

Anyway, I recently visited a place I’ve been looking forward to trying for ages. For months, I drove by the location, only to see that it was still closed.

Well…it finally opened.

Southwest Diner! I love a good diner, and I heard amazing things about this place.

I went with a friend for breakfast. We were super hungry, so we started with some sopapillas:

These fried pieces of dough were pretty tasty, especially when I dipped them in honey! Yum.

On to the real food! I went with Jonathan’s Famous Fiery Scramble: Spicy, cheesy scrambled eggs, bacon, home fries, and toast.

I loved this! The eggs were perfectly cooked; they were fluffy and flavorful – they certainly had a deliciously spicy kick! The home fries were crispy on the outside with a pillowy soft potato center. And the bacon? Well…can you really ever go wrong with bacon?!

My friend went with the cornmeal pancakes:

They look pretty plain, but the cornmeal definitely added something special to these babies. It gave them a nice texture that I really enjoyed.

Service at Southwest Diner was speedy and friendly. Prices were very reasonable. I absolutely give this place two thumbs up, and I can’t wait to go back! Heck, maybe I’ll visit for breakfast tomorrow. Winking smile

See you next week!

    I LOVED THIS PLACE! CANT WAIT TO GO BACK FOR THE MEXICAN BREAKFAST BURRITO! U SKIPPED THE POWDERED SUGAR ON THE SOPAPILLAS?? LOL

      Awww, they didn’t give me powdered sugar on my sopapilla! Booo! I can’t wait to go back soon!

    Nice review, but no green chiles in your breakfast? That’s almost sacrilege, from what I’ve gathered. Fiery scramble sounds like a great choice too, though. This place is way high on my list and maybe the only restaurant that features the tastes of New Mexico.
