What a gem! We ate here twice. In fact, its the only restaurant we ate in while in Alamogordo. The staff was so friendly and extremely helpful with my food allergies. We went for lunch and then again for dinner. Oddly enough, the salmon I had was the second best of my life, the best being in Stockholm, Sweden! And all this in the middle of the desert! Unbelievable! The chef was a native who just moved back. He came out and talked to us and was so nice. We told him how amazing the food was!!

A long time tradition with excellent food at a fair price in Alamogordo. Every city should be so lucky.

It is worth to add a review, since the ones already made cover the full range from "terrible" to "excellent". I am choosing "very good", because i consider the restaurant fine and honest in presenting itself and proposing its cuisine.
The place is old-style, from the architecture of the building, to the furniture and in some way to the service too. I liked it. (Suggestion: a bit more illumination in the dining room). The food is not particularly inventive (as you should expect) but it is fine. The price not particularly convenient (you can certainly spend much less in other paces in town) but not really high.
As I have said, you can guess the style of the place before entering, and if it does not fit you, you could choose another restaurant and avoid disappointments. This was not the case for me.

Memories is a very good restaurant in an old Victorian home. The food was excellent, the prices quite reasonable, and the service very good. The restaurant is in a residential area and parking can be a little hard to find, but well worth the effort.

Went with 2 friends for lunch and again with another couple for dinner to celebrate a special occasion and both visits were memorable and the food delicious. Charming atmosphere in an older Victorian home. At lunch our party tried the BLT sandwich, chili and their excellent baked potato soup. For dinner we had spicy shrimp scampi and steaks (one smothered with green chili) which were cooked to order and excellent. The sweet potato fries are fabulous! We also received very good wine recommendations. Some great desserts too. We tried Bekah's warm sweet croissant with cream cheese icing-yummy!
