Every time I visit, the food, no matter what meal is on spot! In one day's time, I ate dinner and then breakfast today! So good. Dinner was light, as I was going to Ten Thousand Waves and didn't want much food. I had a grilled cheese sandwich on sourdough bread with tomatoes and a small side of salad. Perfectly... More

One of the best breakfast burritos I have ever had. Their potatoes are great as well. Sit up by the bar if you don't want to wait for a table. The guy at the front desk running the credit cards had a bad attitude, but everyone else was super attentive and friendly.

We were staying four nights at the El Rey Inn. The first night we didn't feel like driving to a "good" restaurant so we walked next door to The Pantry. And learned that it is a great restaurant! We ate there the next three nights also. And we noticed that others did the same. Service is top notch, food is... More

Laid back casual atmosphere. The nicest wait staff I have encountered in a while. Got a sampler and everything was delish! Homemade salsa guac and chili was amazing. Will definitely be back!

From the time we walked in I felt comfortable like I was at a friend's house. We came for breakfast on a Sunday morning and sat at the counter as restauant was busy. Servers & staff were friendly, yet professional. Fruit was very fresh. Eggs, bacon & potatotes were great. Good size portions...you will not leave hungry! Oh yeah, get... More

Very nice selection of dishes and great coffee! The servers are extra friendly and helpful, which made the experience all that much more pleasant. Packed, so its reputation probably precedes this review. Didn't have to wait all that long for a table, luckily, and the food service was incredibly prompt. Not as special as some of the other breakfast and... More

We had breakfast here on our last day and I wish we could have stayed another day to do it again. I had huevos rancheros with green chiles. Shut the front door…best stinking things I've ever put in my mouth! And I'm from Texas and assumed I was a connoisseur of this popular breakfast dish having had it my entire... More

You got it! New Mexicans definitely take their New Mexican food very seriously and I'm so happy you enjoyed it. I'm particularly thrilled to hear you loved the Huevos Rancheros and I can't tell you how much it means you'd say they were the best you've ever eaten. I hope we'll be able to welcome you back for more in... More
