“Northern New Mexico Hosipitality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

While camping near by I thought i'd stop by for a casual bite to eat.
From the moment i walked in until i left (3 hours later) I was treated like I was a familiar patron, a friend. The management was busy preparing for a big crowd being the 4th of July.
Joanna was tending bar & busily beaming as she did her job, very well I might add.
My food was better than I expected & the green chile was tasty.
As busy as it was there was no pressure to move people along.
The musical duo on acoustic guitar made the atmosphere even more lively.
As another reviewer wrote "it is like an Old time saloon"
I'll be back, soon.

“Excellent Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

My family had heard that this place put on a breakfast buffet. We went and man was it good. There were gentlemen manning pans making fresh omelets the way you wanted them and all the breakfast food you wanted on the line.

“Like an old time saloon.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

Choice of New Mexican or American food on the menu. Hostess was way too busy and the food was mediocre and expensive. The atmosphere in the bar was great but have no plans to return.

Staff was pleasant & helpful. The pozole side was the best. 9 of us ate for $175 so not bad at all for a nice dinner out.

This is the best restaurant in town. The menu is huge and food is really good. If you travel to Chama, be sure to eat here.
