“Great place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

We ate lunch there this past weekend after discovering it on Trip Advisor. Goodness gracious.. It was fabulous. The owner was so helpful and the waitress was very attentive. And then the food.. Authentic New Mexico food. Very fresh. The corn cake was out of this world. The hot sauce was the best. All of our food was cooked to perfection. We cannot wait to go back. It is off the beaten path. So it is not an over-priced tourist trap. Several of us had the shrimp "Friday Special". Cannot adequately describe how awesome it was. Some the best Mexican food, all of us agreed, was eaten at the Pecos Trail Cafe!

“Mmm...!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

Excellent food. Wonderful friendly service. All the other "excellent" reviews are correct. If you come on Friday, there's a very good mariachi band, too!

“Don't miss this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Went here because of Tripadvisor reviews. Did not disappoint. We where seated immediately on a Thursday night. Place was clean and spacious. We had the chicken enchiladas, cheeses enchilada with a chicken chalupa and the special for Thursday. A beef burrito with a beer green chili sauce. If your a gringo from Texas like us, then get your green chili sauce on the side. It's warm but very good. Finished meal with fried ice cream. Mmmmm! Waitress was very efficient and friendly .

“Fresh home-made delicious food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Superb New Mexican food. Family-run restaurant with fresh local food made from scratch! Friendly and efficient staff. They do serve large parties though, and if you are sitting next to many people celebrating their special occasion, it can get rather noisy. There are other tables for fewer guests in other areas that are super.

“Hidden treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

The restaurant offers traditional food but also does it with a flair. We ordered off the lunch special menu and we were very pleased with our burrito borracho - roast beef with a beer sauce and chili. The food service and atmosphere are great. We will return.
