Southwest Diner may be located on Southwest Avenue, but that's not the only reason for its name. This twist on the classic diner spices it up by infusing traditional American breakfast favorites with tastes of the Southwest. Order an omelet and expect some Longhorn cheese and fillings such as chorizo and calabacitas. Settle for a simple staple of eggs and home fries, but sub in a sopapilla if you want. Southwestern breakfast staples populate the menu, like a New Mexican breakfast burrito smothered in green chile or the carne adovado, a platter of red chile braised pork shoulder served with eggs, home fries and tortillas. It's the perfect place for those who want to dip their greasy spoons in some hot sauce.
