This restaurant was lovingly built and the recipes cooked with just as much care from the original owners whose children carry on the family tradition. Take time to wander and read the accolades that are framed in the interior rooms, appreciate the photos of family members and watch tortillas being made by hand. The huge tree indoors is a great setting for a photo opportunity.
The food is excellent - all original recipes. Prices are incredibly reasonable. Comfort is all around. I understand the staff does a great serenade on special occasions.
If you are driving from Albuquerque to Santa Fe, consider stopping here for lunch and then heading on to Sanctuario de Chimayo on the way. A lovely way to extend the drive and take in nourishment on many levels.
El Paragua has smaller versions (including one next door) called El Parasol in a few locations. If you can't make the main restaurant, look up the other possibilities for a quicker stop.
