Don't let the looks of this place fool you. Dandy's looks like a 1950's hamburger joint and indeed the building may be that old. When you enter look for the menu posted high on the facing wall. There is a wide selection of New Mexican specialties and burgers. I have heard that their burgers are good, but I can't seem... More

Usually have some good green chile stew and you can get it with a soapaipilla! (Fried Bread.) They also have awesome breakfast burritos with potatoes, green chile, bacon, and egg! Also, for the sweet tooth; they have some fantastic French toast!

We were just passing though and were hungry. We stopped in and had lunch. I enjoyed my tacos and my wife enjoyed her chile. We would eat here again.

Great burgers and tacos and pretty much anything you order is delicious. This is also an Espanola icon that has stood the test.

After driving by many times I decided to stop here. I ordered the breakfast burrito. Although the price was not cheap for this type of restaurant I like spending money with independent restaurants. I was surprised that the cost was even higher as was told potatoes were extra. Normally that is a fairly inexpensive ingredient and part of the burrito.... More

Try the chicarron burrito. The wait is long, but the food tastes homemade and the workers are very friendly.

While this restaurant is a bit dated, the food makes up for it. I ordered a green chili cheese burger and fries. It came out quickly and was delicious!!!

Stopped for a quick dinner. Order at the counter. My hamburger was very good with all the fixings and green chili. My husband had a taco salad that was also good.

This is a bit of an out of the way restaurant that one wouldn't normally think of for breakfast, but there are lots of options, all very good. For lunch there are a number of vegetarian options also. You order at the counter and pick up your meal; to go or to eat at one of the booths inside. Self... More
