As a native New Mexican, I was surprised as anyone could be finding a wonderful dinner in the wilds of western New Mexico. Judging from the mixed reviews on TA it is not always fabulous, but we both had the house specialty, the steak and enchiladas. I thought it was wonderful. The enchilada sauce was pure New Mexico red chilies.... More

We went out for a steak in Grants on a Sunday evening.... not easy, it's closed! The owner however was there for a children's party and kindly directed us to Wow in nearby Milan. We returned on Monday to be greeted by said owner as a long lost friend! The steaks were great, service was friendly and the atmosphere warm.... More

Excellent food and service - a large variety of items in addition to steak. If we get back to Grants, we will definitely revisit

We had the steak and enchiladas , bleu cheese chicken salad, hamburger steak w mushrooms...all delicious. Also had Mexicali chicken, but was too spicy hot to eat. Warning(: Wine choices limited, but has full bar. Overall experience very good.

La Ventana is the best place to eat in Grants, if you are on business or want to have a well-prepared meal. The filet is always cooked precisely as requested, service is great, and the drinks are not weak! Even though Grants a small town, this restaurant compares favorably with many "big city" chains.

We love that this place is a bit dark. Chelsea is very attentive with drinks. Happy hour is good in the restaurant too and a good deal on drinks. We have dined here about four times and will keep going back. Our favorite place in Grants. I love the hot rolls and little muffins which are complimentary, as are the... More

This dimly lit steak house has good service and average to poor food. For less money I can have a much better dinner at Wow Diner or the local Italian restaurant. Some may think that this place is fantastic, but I feel that it is overpriced and resting on its laurels in an under served local.

My husband and I were exploring the marvelous volcanic fields and extinct volcanoes in the area south of Grants. We were expecting the usual chain restaurants, but found a restaurant that was beyond the ordinary!! My husband had the chopped sirloin with mushrooms and I wanted more Mexican, so I had the Mexicali Chicken. We were so impressed!! We ate... More

This wonderful restaurant is in a strip center behind an auto parts store. Took us a few turns to find it. We LOVED it! They made me a special margarita and it was great. The pork avadavo was delicious as were the beans and rice. The hot sauce was yummy too. Others at our table raved about the cheese enchiladas... More
