We go to Angelinas regularly for just plain great food. This is the preferred lunch for locals as both chiles are always spot on! The lamb is the specialty and never disappoints. When in doubt...Carne Adovada!

Espanola has few places to eat as it is a small town but this place has good food. Way better than Joanne's! The place is in need of an update, tables and chairs and the booths could use a make over but the food has always been good. The chili whether you like red or green is wonderful. Love their... More

We enjoyed our breakfast here. Very friendly prompt service. My breakfast burrito was great, made with real potatoes and not the frozen crap out of a bag!

As usual, when our family goes out it is a big group. We normally order salsa, guacamole and chips, well they were short of avocados'. What restaurant would be short on avocados'? This one:(. After searching the menu, I had my heart (stomach) set on a side of chicharrones. Well what restaurant would be out of this New Mexico staple... More

The best Chili Rellanos ever...crisp, tender, and cheesy. If you like lamb, they are known for their Costillos also. Great food, quality service, goo prices!

After a 15 minute wait to take our order it took 45 minutes to get an over cooked lamb burger and lamb fajitas with lukewarm beans. It took another 10 minutes to the tortillas for the fajitas and the guacamole for the burger. The waitress held our food in her hands for 2 min while talking to the customers who... More

Lots of food but not very tasty, menus were greasy to the touch. Our waitress was very good the other staff not so much. I found it very busy and loud maybe not the best place to go when you're tied from traveling.

Dont sit by the window because we had to ward off the flies with our menu. The people there are really friendly and the coffe was hot and... More

My wife, a good friend and I stopped by for a bite prior to an excursion to my home town of Los Alamos. The tamales were very good as was the service. It was and seems always to be a popular place with the locals. I had the tamales for a lunch but have heard the lamb is especially good.... More
