Love the fact that we can ride our snowmobiles here! Great bar to carry on a conversation!! Food is ok.... Less then average Mexican food. Service is very attentive. I always go to the "Baron" for a good ol' house margarita!! Great local hang out!

The Baron, as it's referred to by the locals is a great spot for a margarita and nachos. I've had their ribs too, which were awesome. The owner Matt is a great guy, and often personally checks to see if everything is at it should be. It tends to be packed, so slightly off-times work well to get a seat.... More

Lil' Red Baron has a great variety in their menu, and the atmosphere is very authentic Mexican. The wait staff is very helpful, but the best part of the experience is the great Margaritas - the best around. There is also a fire pit and a tent to eat outside on warm nights. Such a fun place!!!!!

This is a really fun venue, located on the grounds of the smallish Newport airport. The restaurant occupies a historic house, with expansion space under tents in the surrounding yard, complete with bonfires. Very friendly folks and great service, but the food/drinks.... I know, should I really have expected decent Mexican food in a New Hampshire resort community (as locals... More

If you're looking for Mexican around Lake Sunapee, this is basically your only option. It is definitely a local spot, and seeing the interactions between everyone from town is fun. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. We sat at the bar and the bartender had a smile on all night. The food itself was nothing amazing, but sufficient by... More

Chipotle Wings - decent flavor but small, Quesadilla Cheese - simple, Sweet Corn Soup - says Topped with corn chips, cheese and toasted pepper but it did not. It was OK nothing special, Chicken Tender Wrap - again pretty simple. Burrito Bean - and the Pork Special were... More

The food well its ok not as good as the Quality you can get else where but heck for a pitcher of Margarita its worth the stop. The salsa tastes like store bought and well I know of a mexican place in Lebanon who hands down is far better in cost and quality. Chef Ervine they need your help.

My wife and I are both fans of mexican food, any take any opportunity to eat it. This is a good little mexican restaurant out of the way on a local grass airport. Food was well cooked, great flavour, not spicy at all, but very tasty. The deep fried dill pickles were unusual and really good. My Carne Asada was... More
