A Local Gem Off The Beaten Path

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

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.
