The food at the Nuckleweed is as good as any up-scale restaurant in any of the foodie capitals in the country. I had their grilled cheese sandwich which was the best I have ever had. The restaurant is small and in a very nice setting, and the service is outstanding. What a find!

The hours are limited for dinner to Thurs, Fri., and Sat., and it's best to have a reservation, although one couple walked in and was seated because it was a slow night. Indeed while we were there, we and the other couple were the only patrons. It is easy to find if you are coming from Alamogordo and take Laborcita... More

I have been to Knuckleweed Place at least a half a dozen occasions. The overpriced food is usually good and the service is usually poor. It's main feature is the location. During the last weekend, we found the restaurant closed (Twice!) during times it was supposed to be open. When we drove up there yesterday, we were told that they... More

All the food is great. Most if not all of the food is homemade. The dinner prices are expensive but worth it!!!

Pros: - The staff are very friendly. - Pretty good food Cons: - food is a little over priced - it takes a long time to get your food - place does not accept credit cards (for a $200 bill, that's just crazy), and there's no sign/note about them not accepting credit cards, which can be a little surprising
