Great steaks in Grants

We chose this location based on T/A ratings and were not disappointed in any way. This is another location where you should not let the exterior keep you from going in. We both ordered steaks and they were both prepared the way we ordered and delicious. Service was excellent & friendly. Grants... read more

After hiking El Morro we were very hot and hungry. Grants is not the gourmet capital of the world, and most of the buildings look pretty uninviting on the outside, including this one. But, I checked Trip Advisor and it got good reviews. Thank you other reviewers. The food was good, the waitress was adorable and we loved the dim... More

We pulled into Grants at 8:30. I had found a restaurant on your web site, which we were looking for, that closed at nine pm. After driving around confused, my husband caught a glimpse of the mural on La Ventana, as it is a block back from the main street. Desparate to eat, we went in. They were most accommodating... More

We arrived after 8 PM to find the dining room closed at our hotel. We had just driven from Denver thru rain, snow, wind and hail, on the edge of a tornado! Really wanted to sit down to some tequila and a nice meal. The desk clerk was friendly, but unable to suggest any place but the Taco Bell and... More

Based on a few of the mixed reviews I had some reservations but decided to check out La Ventana and I'm glad that I did. Unlike a previous reviewer, my ribeye was grilled to perfection (medium rare), the dinner salad was large with an assortment of greens, cukes, and bell pepper, and the loaded baked potato was huge! Nicole was... More

Our soup and sandwich hit the spot. The soup was chicken noodle and wad definitely made in-house. We chose a club sandwich, which they split for us, no fuss or extra charge We will eat there again when in Grants.

Definitely a great place for steak. Nice tender rib eye, good salad, helpful waitstaff. Make a reservation, it's small and gets crowded with locals.

We were staying overnight in Grants and checked tripadvisor for somewhere to eat. La Ventana had good reviews so we drove over. It's tucked a little ways down the street and looks a little sketchy on the outside. The entrance was a little hard to find (it's the door on the right by the way!) Inside is a bit dated... More

Depending upon the time of day the shadows might make your photos turn out to be not quite what one might expect compared to the experience of seeing this natural arch up close and personal, but it makes for a great stop during the scenic drive through El Malpais! Rest Rooms are clean and the serenity of the location makes... More
