We weren't sure when we pulled up, but the parking lot was full and we gave it a chance. I am glad we stopped the food was very good and we had a great meal.

If you are in Grants (for Chaco Canyon, Acoma Pueblo or something else?), eat at La Ventana. They pour a good drink, have great service, good steaks and New Mexican food. All you need to know is that on an ordinary Wednesday night, you should make a reservation. All the locals do. The wine list is only 20 wines, but... More

Great food and service in this small town location. It even had some gluten free options. Steak was great and cooked perfect!

We ate dinner at La Ventana. It doesn't look like much from the outside but the food is delicious. I had the shredded beef burro with green chile sauce and my husband had chicken breast smothered with a green chile sauce. The wait staff is friendly and helpful. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The El Malpais area in New Mexico is beautiful and rich in geologic history. We loved visiting Ventana Arch and taking pictures of this beautiful, natural area!

A nice local New Mexican Steakhouse off of Historic Route 66! This place is by far the best place to eat in Grants. It has local charm and really good New Mexican, American and Mexican cuisine! The atmosphere is nice and the staff is very friendly. Best of all the prices are very reasonable!

A hole in the wall steak seafood place that is simply amazing. Sat at the bar and had a wonderful glass of Merlot while eating a perfectly prepared fillet. Sam, in the kitchen did an outstanding job cooking it medium rare. The baked potato was loaded and was hot. It was perfectly delivered with all the fixings. I ordered a... More

Not to be missed restaurant frequented by locals. We're not big on steaks so we ordered Mexican. Great food served quickly. The room is kind of dark, but we expected that.

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 doesn't have much of dining scene, but you... 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
