Although Albuquerque was only officially founded in 1706, the Pueblo people have lived in this part of New Mexico since approximately 2000 B.C.! With such a long and rich history, it’s unsurprising that many restaurants inhabit old buildings, which are worth a visit as much for their past as for their present.
The Lincoln Highway is officially the nation’s loneliest road, but many other parts of the American Southwest are barely inhabited. This is certainly true of the stretch of I-40 between Albuquerque and Flagstaff. One of the few stopping points between the two cities is Gallup, New Mexico.
