Stopped in simply to be able to say “ I ate in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico”. Place was very busy with local folks. Priced right, but food just average.

Service was excellent from the moment we walked in. Food portions good size and had great taste. Authentic New Mexican style. If this shop was close to my home I would go frequently!

One of our friends considers El Faro to be the best of its kind in the state so he was eager for us to partake. We all had various entrees ranging from combinations to burritos. I must admit that the chile rellenos were excellent. However,...More
