I had a great meal here a couple nights back. What I ordered was an "Indian Taco" which had beans and beef inside Indian Frybread, topped with cheese. It was great. The frybread was tasty, and so was the meat. I also really liked their potato chips and sopapillas. I think the grill is a good place to have dinner... More

Traveling and stopped over night in Santa Rosa NM. Looking for a seafood and steak place, according to hotel desk clerk, no such place there. She suggested this place. VERY overpriced, food less than ordinary. Imagine a Mexican restaurant that doesn't even bring a complimentary bowl of chips and salsa to the table. If you want them you pay several... More

Horrible! Horrible ! Horrible! Over priced. My kid loves cheese and threw it up tasting it. My husband tasted it to see if he was just being picky and he almost puked. I had the carnitas with rice on the side, my rice tasted like rice with watery tomato sauce and the beef had no flavor but pepper and the... More

When we first walked in we were overwhelmed by a feeling of sadness. A heavy melancholy feeling ached in all of our hearts. We dragged ourselves to our booth where we found contrasting seasonal decorations and a menu that was totally geared toward seniors. The food was pretty good, which made our happy meters increase, but then we saw......the hair.... More

A very friendly staff that looks after you while with them. Generous portions of food on each plate. Do not forget to order the cherry cobbler or coconut cream pie. Yum. The stuff sopapilla was a great entree. The meals going to other tables looked great, as well.

We were very disappointed. Really expected good food. The place was clean and people were pleasant when we walked in. When we left and were asked about the food and told them about it, the cashier and manager just looked at us in disbelief and did not bother to say they were sorry we were disappointed. We ordered from senior... More

We travel I-40 often and stopped here for dinner. The restaurant is conveniently located right off the highway. It was clean and the service was very fast. We were in and out in 30 minutes. My husband's chicken Enchiladas were very tasty, especially the green chili. My nachos were good too. We will definitely stop here again. You should give... More

I needed a late breakfast and was very happy to support this local restaurant rather than a giant chain, like Denny's. The staff were pleasant, the food was good for the price. Able to taste Hatch hot chili sauce, which is a New Mexico classic.
