Western View Diner & Steakhouse
6411 Central Ave NW Albuquerque, NM 87105

The Route 66 classic Western View has been known in previous years as the Ski View and Desert View, which were pretty appropriate names too. It's been the Western View though for more than 40 years, and has had a succession of Greek owners to the present family. It used to be open 24/7 and many older folks remember coming after dancing at the Hitching Post, which was next door, but was replaced by an apartment building. The kitchen is still the original structure and the other exterior walls have been added on through the years. There is a mosaic on the back wall by the register that is still visible today - and has been retained. The Anagnostakos's pride themselves on the family environment (all four of their kids have worked here) and have customers that have had 4 generations of family coming in here. They serve made from scratch gravy, tortillas, dinner bread, salsa, and soups, including the popular chicken. All of our food is prepared fresh daily and they are known for chili and really awesome burgers. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
