El Comedor Restaurant, NM Route 66, Moriarty by 


This is the neon rotosphere atop the El Comedor restaurant on old Route 66 in Moriarty, NM. A few years back, the rotosphere was restored using federal grant money in a project championed by the legendary JohnnyV.

    Makes me think of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, or the Big Lebowski or something. Great shot!

  • I hadn’t thought of it that way, but it is a very quirky sort of neon, so it would lend itself well to film. Incidentally, a lot of movies and television shows are being shot in New Mexico these days, so who knows! Thanks for your comment, Graham!

    Great capture! I have just read that Route 66 is on World Monuments List, to save and restore surrounding area along he this historic road!

  • Thank you for the comment and the great news! This venerable old highway is in the national consciousness for the older generation, and the remnants are worth preserving.
