On our way from Bella Vista, AR to Buena Vista, CO we stopped in Raton, NM to have lunch. The man at the service station said "Oasis!" He was man of few words. :) So we headed that way and found the cafe in a motel! Not sure we went in. Best decidion I have made in a long time!... More

We make this trek at least once a year...and we always look forward to a meal at The Oasis. The Mexican specialties are our favorite! Sopapilla sate fresh and hot. DELISH!

Forget the new "old" fifties diners with their chrome and Marilyn Monroe cut-outs. This place is the real deal. To start, most meals come with homemade soup, a basket of crackers and butter and an iceberg lettuce salad. The cracker basket alone takes you back to a time when meals came with bread or crackers to appease hungry kids. The... More

Northern NM vacation from Texas began by passing through Raton and the wife, kids, and I wanted to make sure we only ate at home-owned, unique-to-the-town restaurants throughout the trip. I had made a plan to eat green, red, or Christmas-style chile for EVERY meal of our trip, but was a little skeptical of beginning in Raton (not the first... More

The food is very reasonably priced and homemade according to the waitress. Had the ground beef enchiladas with green sauce. Not my usual choice but good. It came with black beans, a small salad and sopaipilla. Not listed on the menu but also included was a cup of the soup of the day which was very good. The staff is... More

My family and I stopped in this diner-esque restaurant that's actually located within the main office of the local motel of the same name. The servers and waitstaff were friendly enough and very accommodating for us out-of-towners. Ordered the chicken-fried steak which was smothered in a fresh, homemade gravy. It was about average although a little too well-done. Price-wise, this... More

We had the enchiladas with green chili sauce which were excellent. The staff was attentive and friendly. Great atmosphere since it opened in 1953. We will definitely eat here again when we are in Raton.

This was highly rated on TripAdvisor so we went there for supper. The place was very clean, the staff was on the spot and helpful at every question, the food was good (not great, but really good) and plentiful, and it was fast. It looked like many locals ate there and it was a very pleasant place over all. We... More

Ordered chicken fried steak because i was told it was not frozen and included soap, salad, and choice of patio and corn. The soup was good, the salad was good, but the chicken fried steak was not. Very greasy and too much grizzle. Service was so so. I did not eat it all.
