good food and reasonable price!hard to find and a little drive from town but worth the time. If you like Tex-Mex then this place is not for you.

“Old Road House: Unexpected Excellence”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

Who would have expected such excellence in such an out of the way locale? Some of the best Mexican food in NM -- all totally fresh and made from scratch. Prices were very reasonable. Sit on the veranda for a breathtaking view!

“Old Road House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

I went there with friends from Michigan and we had Green Chilli Cheese Burgers. It was wonderful. Not too hot, just right. We also had fries and onion rings. It is a quiet place and service was excellent. It is open daily except Mondays 9am to 9pm. Closed on Easter and Christmas. Once you have been there you will be back again and again.

“Great food at a Great Price, and off the beaten path.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2012

We went to there with a group of 14, adults and children. It is definitely one of the better choices in the area. Even the chips were remarkable. Excellent mexican food at an incredibly low cost...and great service to boot. BUT they do not take credit cards! So go prepared.

“one of my favorite Mexican restaurants!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2010

I have always loved everything about this place; eaten here dozens of times over the years, but now can only visit a couple of times a year, it's still great. The salsa is hot, hot, hot! And every flavor just screams New Mexican. Chile Rellenos are the best anywhere, and don't forget the sopaipillas!
