The location on a hill beckons to the traveller on I 25. Coming from Albuquerque it's out favorite stop for green chili chicken, fried onions, steak and house Merlot. The portions are so big, some of the meat goes home every time.

Service was mediocre at best, food was disgusting. The address isn't correct on here either - 1 Lakeway Dr takes you into the middle of some neighborhood.

Service was slow, food was terrible. I was with a large party, but still...don't waste your time! I ordered cheese enchiladas and they were the worst I have ever had - two dried up corn tortillas sprinkled with cheese and red chile sauce that had no flavor. They forgot the garnish (which had to be ordered separately) and after waiting... More

We were in town for a high school rodeo and this was the worst out to eat experience I've ever had. I have NEVER ever done a review but feel like I need to. We waited for almost 2 hours for our food and after it came out it was cold. Even after we got our food we still didn't... More

Our party of four asked for a booth and we were seated next to the windows at about 5:30 in the afternoon. Very uncomfortable because of the heat. (The owner could have paid for heat shielding window tinting or awnings many times over with the savings in a/c cost.) Anyway, the place was practically empty so we moved to the... More

The staff here is very friendly and prompt. The food is average Mexican Cuisine as well as having some American Cuisine. Very nice place to take visitors. They also have a courtyard dining area. We recommend this place if your visiting Truth or Consequences, NM.

The food was OK, but if you prefer real Mexican Food you will be disappointed. It is Americanized Mexican Food. There are many choices on the menu. Service was very good, and the decor inside the restaurant is very well done. I

It was Monsoon Season so it was cooler but not raining when I was there. I enjoyed the patio and water fountain. The chips and salsa was tasty and I had the apricot broiled Salmon. It had salsa and pinon' nuts broiled on top! It was great plus they offered the option of potatoes and veggies instead of Black beans... More

Thank You for taking the time for a review Our traditional New Mexican recipes are handed down from our great grandparents. We still do it the old fashion way soaking whole chili pods from Hatch and blending them before seasoning .. nothing else added our steaks are still hand cut and our hamburgers are made daily. Thank you for choosing... More
