On the day after Christmas lots of families and couples young and old were coming in for a simple meal. Most people seemed to know each other and the staff. An old dude with a beautiful mustache gave us a welcoming wave when we out-of-towners wandered in. Inspirational posters on the wall, scuffed formica tabletops and fast, friendly service.
The menu has both Mexican/New Mexican specialties and American diner classics and people seemed to be ordering equally from both. I had a platter with red chile beef, beans and rice. Partner had a combo with taco, enchilada and chile relleno. Basic food done well, served fresh and fast! The chile relleno was a thing of beauty, giant roasted green chile filled with cheese and coated in an fluffy eggy batter. His combo also came with whole wheat sopapillas and a jar of honey to drizzle: transcendent fried dough. I considered changing our travel route so we could pass back through Silver City and try the chicken fried steak or the hot roast beef sandwich!
