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.

We took my sister here when she visited. We ordered 'chinese food. Stir fry, egg rolls, rice,etc... The food was BAD....embarrassingly bad! The vegetables were overcooked.... mushy, tasteless. Clearly they were right out of a frozen bag. Microwaved into paste. The 'sauces' tasted like they were poured over from a bottle. Just awful!! The young man serving, waiting, etc...seemed harried...

I've been eating at this place for about 18 years. It used to be a pink trailer sitting out on the main drag in Elephant Butte. It moved around the corner, into a custom built building several years ago. The food has remained as consistently delicious as the first time I ate there. There are very few, if any, items... More

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!
