Great

Loved the food and service. Hotel staff did right by directing us here! Great enchiladas and drinks...the green chili is pretty warm, gave us a different taste than Maria's. Loved the service at the bar

Whether you eat at the southside location or downtown on the Plaza, the food is fabulous. Love their coconut pie and their breakfasts. Always eat here when I am in town.

We had the New Mexico Chopped Salad and the Mixed Green salad along with a cup of Green Chile Stew. Great stew. Salads were also very good, this restaurant with its roots on the main plaza has a long history of good food. It's a place you will find the original Happy Meal.

The food at this location and the location on the plaza is good, filling and generally served at the appropriate temperature. We had a waitress (Donna) who seemed overwhelmed with serving the patio patrons on the day we went. Everything from providing flatware, serving drinks, getting and clearing the meal and delivering the check was in super-slow motion. Other patrons... More

Loved everything about this place. Super friendly staff, deserts in the case looked (and tasted amazing). Great value for your money. Whatever you order, get the green sauce on it. Just trust me!

Several people recommended this restaurant to us. It was very good. The food was great. I loved the prickly pear lemonade as did my son. The service was also good. We were able to walk from our hotel, which was a plus.

We were treated to this "locals" spot by recommendation of the manager of the hotel we were staying at. Oh my, I had a Blue Corn Pinon Pancake with maple cinnamon syrup which was delightfully different! Our waitress was fantastic as well; she explained so much to us that this cafe was for the locals; how she felt like family... More
