We had eaten here 3 years ago and loved it. On our way further north in CO, we stopped in Trinidad just to eat here! It did not disappoint! Chili rellenos were so much better than we can get in OK, great enchiladas, and we bought some salsa to take with us. Will always stop here when on this travel... More

We were staying one night in Trinidad on the way home to Texas. We wanted to eat in the lovey historic downtown. We sort of stumbled upon Mission at the Bell. It was a pleasant surprise. At first, when looking at the menu we were not sure we wanted to stay. We are accustomed to Tex-mex and this was more... More

The restaurant came recommended by a friend when I asked about where to get Mexican food. I also asked for tex-mex not authentic or what I call northern style. What we got was what I call northern style. The food lacked spices in my opinion and was a bit bland. I got a chili relleno and my wife got chimchunga.... More

Me and my S.O. visited after a drive down the Highway of Legends and hoped our evening meal would be the topper so to speak. When we arrived we should have had misgivings as close to dinner time and the restaurant was empty. We stayed and shared the enchilada platter as neither of us are big eaters. We clearly told...

I'm finally reviewing this restaurant after being a customer for the entire 18 years that they've been in business. I've tried almost everything on the menu and it is ALL delicious and fresh with a very nice presentation. Of course, my favorites are: the azteca, their chimichanga, the burritos, and tamales. You can order your green chile in hot (!!),... More

In order to not eat too much. my husband and I wanted to split a plate and was told that is not allowed for dinner… 😟 Salsa was delicious, but chips were not very good. We ordered a combo plate and adobada burrito. The food was great!!! The... More

As always, we had a wonderful dinner at Mission at the Bell. The food here is tremendous, and the staff are the best. Great ambience, great service, but the food is outstanding.

We've been there several times. The atmosphere is very cozy and the service was great. If this place were in Austin, TX, there would be a line around the block. The green chili is very good (but not actually green like it is in NM). You can order mild, medium, or hot. Sometimes hot is perfect, but once it was... More

Ate here several times while in town for a couple week stint. Best Mexican food I've ever had anywhere, ever. Loved everything I tried, but the juevos rancheros are unbelievable. Can't wait to go back.

Lunch here was excellent, hubby had smothered burrito with green chili, spicy, hit and fresh. I had the same, but with red sauce. I liked his better, but mine was good. Good chips and salsa!
