An ok place to stop and get a quick meal. Their red and green chili was good, but their food is pretty average. Service was ok. You can shop for jewelry while you eat as the native american folks come by with their wares. But they only let a few at a time so you are not overwhelmed, one of... More

Busy restaurant that was obviously a local favorite. Food was very good but non-locals beware - the mild red chili sauce almost had us crying. Suggest ordered the red or green sauce on the side unless you really like spicy food. Good margaritas that are reasonably priced.

The general manager at our hotel recommended this place. Good food , pretty good service , good value. The atmosphere is pretty plain, but who cares if the food is good. The jewelry sellers add something to talk about, be it good or bad , as you may see it.

After driving cross-country, Gallup had to be the place for our missing Mexican food fix. We picked the right location. The food was flavorful, plentiful and more than we had hoped for. The Chiles Relleno were the best I have ever tasted and the Shredded Beef Chimi was about as good as it gets, too. We are not Mexican food... More

We had the fish tacos, enchiladas, and chili. It was great, the service was fabulous, and the people were very nice. I recommend the restaurant to others.

We usually stop here when we are in Gallup and they are usually busy. Service has always been excellent and the owner/manager is always keeping an eye on things to be sure the customers are happy. The food is not Tex/Mex, but very authentic; the red sauces are hot. They have a few selections for folks who are with you... More
