"...and they say, it's better than yours..."

I am officially a girl on a mission. My mission?



To find the best milkshakes in Albuquerque.



I begin my search at the place where most everyone will go when searching for milkshakes: The Route 66 diner. The signs on the road ask any passers-by if it would be great to stop in for a shake, and many eventually stop in.

They are greeted by a world of ridiculous costumes for the employees and deep fried tastiness for the customers. There are few things better than fries with “cheese” and green chile accompanied by a milkshake.



It is quintessential. It is classic. All of the food is exactly what you expect for any 50s diner—the burgers, the chicken fried everything, the fries. The milkshakes are, also, exactly what anyone would expect: thick, tasty, creamy, and with way more shake than anyone needs to drink at once.



And while the flavor of the month is usually a bit different (the Cappuccino for February was delicious, but I never had the guts to try the pumpkin pie), the shakes aren’t exactly innovative. Not that they have to be—if the 66 Diner attempted to be innovative it would lose most of its charm.



But, occasionally, we find ourselves looking for more than just that simple, quintessential milkshake—so where would I go next when attempting to find that illusive Best Milkshake?
