If I had to choose one modern iconic building that expresses the Route 66 spirit in Albuquerque, New Mexico, this is it. The 66 Diner, located in East Downtown, Albuquerque on the old Route 66 (Central Ave). Why? Look at it! It has a classic Route 66 stance and attitude rendered with clean lines and a striking silhouette.
To top it all off, the food here is good as well! Come loaded with quarters for the jukebox and a healthy appetite for great chile cheeseburgers and frosty shakes. The parking lot is always crowded with locals and visitors. This is one of the essential places to stop if you find yourself in Albuquerque! -Don Peterson
