“Great local Peppers”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Not a lot to choose from in Cuba so we didn't expect much but the local green peppers were outstanding. I had a chicken and pepper dish and my wife had chile rellenos. Both were outstanding. The service was only two star but obviously both the hostess and the waitress were very new to their jobs and the Owner/Manager (?) had to help with seeing that the meals were complete and that the CC was appropriately billed.

“Worth a Stop”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

It is a long road between Bernalillo and Farmington and Cuba is in the right spot for a stop. In fact it is about the only stop for food along the way. El Bruno's has been serving up green and red chile since 1975 and they do it well. The menu is large so there is something for everyone. There are better New Mexico kitchens but not in Cuba and El Bruno's will satisfy you. This is a friendly local spot with a nice atmosphere and good service. Enjoy!
