WOW Diner, Milan NM

The WOW Diner is a modern replica of the classic 1950's rail-car diners, with an expanded floor plan and a striking stainless steel exterior.  Comfortable booths and a soda fountain add to the ambience.  This restaurant is very popular with locals and travelers as well, offering a great variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner items. 

Prices are moderate, portions are generous, and service is excellent!

The dinner menu includes Pastas, Salads, Seafood, Steaks, and Prime Rib.  Throughout the day, the entire menu also features pizza, Asian bowls, New Mexico favorites, and a full list of breakfast favorites, sides, desserts and more!  Beer and wine are also available with meals.  The Fajitas, Carnitas and Enchiladas are highly recommended!

The location is just southwest of I-40 (Exit 79), four blocks from Historic Route 66, and across from the Petro truck stop.  Despite Petro's own restaurant, the WOW Diner is a welcome alternative for truckers as well.

Former Grants 'La Ventana' steakhouse owners Bill Sorenson and Stephanie Matkovich saw a great opportunity here in Milan - the need for a classic '50's style retro diner, just a few blocks west of Historic Route 66, and right next to two truck stops!
