Good food and affordable

For a small place, the menu has a good variety. Their Asian/Chinese dishes are very good and portions are generous. Burgers are great, Reuben sandwich is a good choice too. Service is usually pretty fast and friendly, and prices are very affordable.

Menu is diverse and tasty. Great portions for the price. Carries a solid selection of craft beers. The outdoor seating area with tipi and blooming peach trees is great on a spring day! Two minutes from Elephant Butte and a quick ten minute drive from the arts district in Truth or Consequences. I recommend!

They have quite the UN of menus...Thai, Chinese, New Mexican. Everything we had was excellent, except for the too-sweet tartar sauce.

For a little place, Bog Food Express cooks up a killer burger and all kinds of international fair. Very good food.

This small little restaurant is run and operated by its owner. He is very talented and serves up consistently great food at reasonable prices. The lunch specials are great and unbelievably affordable!

Showed up minutes before closing and was welcomed and made to feel like they sincerely appreciated my business. Wide selection of menu choices including beer and wine. I had the Thai Curry Chicken and would recommend it to anyone. Meal was hot and fresh. Service was great...will definitely be back!

It was a gorgeous evening so I stopped in here to get a carryout picnic so I could watch the sunset at Elephant Butte Park. I got their version of a Green Chili Cheeseburger, which had a huge, fresh burger (I can always tell the difference between fresh and frozen burger) on a grilled toasted-onion bun, swiss cheese and several...

This is a scary joint... when you look at all the eclectic offerings, your mind tells you that no small joint like this can possible keep that level of food fresh. Well.. guess what? they don't. Freezer burn and "old food" taste come standard with most of their food. Worst meal ever.
