This is not the type of place I usually frequent. I went there because of the reviews. The food is great. My favorite were the hand cut fresh French fries, NOT frozen. The place is old and looks rundown but the service is awesome. If you decide to give them a try don't hesitate it's really worth it. You will... More

Always good friendly service. Food is served in large portions so bring your appetite! Have always ordered the Travis and today came for breakfast. Smothered burrito and it was amazing!

Came here from England, not sure what do expect. Loved it. Friendly staff, super food(only did the travis) and failed spectacularly at the challenge. But it's an experience. 👍🏼

Grandma's K&I is a icon. Its located off the beaten track in a less than nice area but having eaten here for over a decade, I've never had an issue. Law enforcement regularly eat here so its a safe place to eat. Food is good quality and fairly priced. The "Travis" is a staple and bring an appetite for it... More

My wife ordered the egg plate that came with tortilla hashbrowns and bacon. I ordered a handheld bacon burrito with green chili. The chili wasn't hard at all that was my only "negative about the place. My wife enjoyed the coffee and the sweet tea was excellent. The portions are huge so come with an appetite!

I first ate at the KandI Diner in 1982. I lived in Albuquerque at the time and ate at the diner on a regular basis. After moving away, I have returned to Albuquerque on a somewhat regular basis, and I always try to find an opportune time to eat at the KandI Diner. I tried once to eat 1/2 Travis... More

I love breakfast and K&I Diner doesn't disappoint. The best thing is that I can get breakfast for lunch! Woohoo. My favorite meal at the diner is an order of biscuits and gravy and side of green chile. The biscuits are great and they give you plenty of gravy to smother them. Their green chile is tasty, but not spicy...so,... More

It is always enjoyable for me to introduce my business friends to the K & I Diner. Geat quality food and large proportions. Even the "Wimp Travis" size is difficulty to complete due to size. I will be back. As other have stated must get there before their 2 PM closing

So the Travis is a monster burrito served with a pile of fires on top. The silver platter one has been featured on Man Vs. Food, it is so big. I had a 1/4 Travis and was in no mood to eat dinner that night. As for the food, it was good, but just a bunch of cooked ground beef... More

K & I Diner is and old school dive with great food and friendly service. The prices are extremely reasonable and the food is excellent. On the downside it is only open for breakfast and lunch....so go early and bring your appetite.
