The Glenstone Pile-Up is the signature item at Coyote’s Adobe Café, where breakfast is served starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. It’s a bit legendary, and it deserves it. This heaping pile of food starts with the restaurant’s southwest hash browns featuring onions and bell peppers. Then comes the fun part: Two crispy chicken tenders are doused in buffalo wing sauce, cut up and sprinkled over the hash browns. On top is pico de gallo, lots of warm and chunky sausage gravy and two eggs. On the side, you get toast, a biscuit and gravy or two super-thick pancakes. You might not think buffalo chicken is a breakfast food (or that it would play nice with sausage gravy). Don’t knock it until you try it. All of those savory ingredients come together beautifully. And since you can get plenty of the hair of the dog that bit you while at Coyote’s, the Glenstone Pile-up is—let’s admit it—a great hangover food.
While you’re there, don’t bypass the menu’s skillet dishes. The Chuck Wagon Skillet is a hearty mountain of food that starts with chunky skillet potatoes that are topped with strips of country fried steak, doused in a hefty smattering of sausage gravy and then topped with two eggs. Add a little hot sauce, and you have yourself a feast.

Village Inn is one of those one-stop-shop breakfast spots that offers a little bit of everything and morning fare for every taste bud. If you have a sweet tooth, go for crepes or pancakes. If you don’t, try one of the tasty skillet meals. We satisfy our craving for a big, huge skillet with the Rio Grande Skillet. It’s one of a handful of piled-high one-plate meals on the menu, and it comes topped with pork carnitas, green chilis, jalapeños, sour cream, salsa, red peppers, onions and two kinds of shredded cheese. It’s hot enough to spice up your morning, and it’s packed with southwest flavor for a nice change of pace from typical breakfast fare.
