In 1934, Roy E. Cline had an idea, build a Filling Station and Café at the intersection of then U.S. Highway 6 & 2 in the middle of New Mexico and people will stop, shop and eat. Never did he realize he would have to do it again in 1937 when the highway moved slightly north and renamed Route 66 & U.S. 285. But he did and today Clines Corners Retail Center sits at that same intersection where it has become not just a rest stop for weary travelers but a place to shop, dine at it’s full service restaurant.

Got there just in time for dinner before the cafe closed. Not the best food in the world, but the atmosphere was well worth the stop. My kids said it felt like they were in a movie because of the New Mexico scenery.
Best place to shop for souvenirs. I always buy a cactus from here. And the last trip I invested in some super-comfortable fleece-lined boots that got this California girl through the rest of a very cold route 66 road trip.
Not the best place to get gas (you can find it cheaper elsewhere) but you're probably not stopping here for gas. You're probably stopping here to explore the old-school Route 66 attraction, take a few pictures and browse around as a break from sitting in the car. If you can, stop in the Mexican joint for some authentic green chile!
Very bummed put this on the map for our trip and got here before 9 and it was already closed! I had checked their "website" before going and it doesn't list hours so I don't know when they closed but I kind of assumed no hours listed and such a "destination" at the corner of two highways.... maybe it's 24/7...unfortunately it was not.
Was there in August on a motorcycle trip from Ilinois. Food was great and everyone was so friendly. Bought some things and looking forward to stopping there again.
Fun as always. Love stopping here everyone we come this way.
We made it here a little before 9p and the amazing looking gift shop was closed :( the part that was open was not that great, no coffee and the pop machine was out of order. I was disappointed but will have to stop next time to really see everything when it's open.
I have stopped here many times on long road trips. Burgers are great! Much better than average.
Skip it. We ordered a turkey sandwich and a hot dog, and after waiting forty minutes, we got up and left. Also, our server was eating French fries while taking other people's orders. The food is very overpriced for what it is.
great place to stop and walk around! they have lots of things too look at inside!
