Green chile good, but spicy. Nightly local hangout makes awkward for travelers. Patio in back cozy.

“Best restaurant in Socorro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012 via mobile

How is this place ranked so low? This just goes to prove that the average person is clueless to their surroundings. The Bistro is the best restaurant in Socorro. Five of us ended up here for dinner on a recent business trip. Each of us ordered a different dish. All of them were fantastic. The wait staff was attentive and quick. The atmosphere was cozy and intimate. Don't shortchange yourself. If you find yourself in Socorro have dinner at the Bistro. It's an experience you will want to re-live.

“Go for the food, but stay for the music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

I enjoy this restaurant for the food, but I love the fact that they support the local musicians. They have several nice appetizers - I'm a fan of shrimp rumaki, and the enchiladas can be really good. Also the prime rib. They also serve a variety of microbrew beers and some nice wines. It's a friendly atmosphere in a Socorro landmark. Service can be a little slow if they get a big crowd at once, but you can always sit and have a drink while you wait.

“Pretty Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

Had steak and shrimp combo; it was pretty good, can't claim amazing. Rate it average plus. Maybe I got the wrong dish. Mexican food looked good.
