Population 5-6

On a highway between El Paso Texas and Carlsbad Caverns, New Mexico, the main selling point of this "town" is its population of 5-6 (they must have to send one person out for groceries every now and then). It resembles a single wide trailer containing a restaurant of about 4 tables and a gift shop selling authentic Mexican blankets (no, not made in China or Taiwan) for $5.00.

[Ami Thomas, 06/30/2001]

Cornudas consists of the Cornudas Cafe and its outbuildings (Its current owners have never bothered to paint out the "May's Cafe" on its roof). The 5-6 claim is made on sign in the window of the Cafe, which is known for its hand-written paper bag menus.
