Within walking distance of our motel. Thought the decor was rather dated. Took a few minutes for someone to greet us/take drink orders. Our food was adequate portions, filling, & tasty. Gift shop out by the register had some unusual items for sale.

We ordered a chicken quesadilla which was OK but way overpriced, as was everything on the menu. We will not stop here again.

We arrived 7pm on a Saturday. We were quickly seated. Food took about 15min to arrive. Portion sizes were good and the chili sauce was great. The place looked clean enough and the staff was friendly.

It was time to pull off and take a break from our days drive and we didn't want fast food. Easy to find and plenty of parking. Nice staff and looked very clean. Well decorated for Christmas too which was nice. There were many options and the prices we OK. The food was good and didn't take long after ordering.... More

Stopped here because the reviews were so good. I am convinced they paid people to write the reviews. Restaurant itself lack appeal and the wait staff is less than personable. Food was way over priced small portions and bland. Would not recommend this restaurant.

Excellent New Mexico cuisine can be found scattered in this eclectic menu. Friendly and efficient staff took our order, delivered the food in a timely manner and were able to help wit questions from menu items to roadway directions. We had an early dinner so the crowd was thin. You cannot go wrong with either the green or red chili... More

A restaurant specializing in Mexican food as well as other types of food. Our selections were ample and tasty. Limited beer and wine selections to accompany your food if you wish to.

Traveling with family. Everyone liked their food. Chicken green-chili burritos were enjoyed. Chimichanga was very crispy and tasty. Chili verde was good.

The service was excellent, but that is about all I have good to say about my visit. It wasn't that there was anything really wrong, it's just that there wasn't anything good. Queso from a can, chips from a bag, salsa from a jar, & thet taste of that same ground beef seasoning that one gets in a bag for... More

Nice place with variety of food including Mexican and American favorites. Limited bar with beer, wine and margaritas only and a 2 drink limit. Seems to be popular with the locals. Service was good, fast and friendly. Easy access from I40
