“Don't eat here”
Reviewed August 25, 2010

Food was bland, greasy and almost inedible. Posole tasted rancid. Green chiles and rest of the food was out of a can and reheated. "Cheese" was not real cheese. Don't think fryer oil had ever been changed. Waitress was rude and unavailable. Place seemed dirty. Chile relleno had batter on it 2 inches thick. Food may be cheap(er) but is overpriced in terms of value. Just hope I don't get sick from it. We live in NM and this is not a good representation of the food here. Stay away!

“Well . . .”
Reviewed May 26, 2009

I left a fancy place where I was staying because I didnt want to pay their prices and drove north looking for breakfast. This was the first place I saw on the left between an RV park and a fireworks store -- so you get the idea.

It was kind of beaten up, but inside it seemed like a restaurant for just plain folks -- nothing fancy but theyll do their best. The breakfast was fine.

I wish they would spruce it up a little -- get rid of some half dead plants. But some of the unusual items they had around the place were interesting.

At least it wasn't pretentious -- didn't pretend to be anything it wasnt.

“Local, authentic, very inexpensive”
Reviewed April 21, 2009

This is the real thing. A local restaurant with authentic New Mexican cuisine with some American items thrown in.

It is very inexpensive so don't expect fantastic food or great decor. However they can do the standard breakfast as well as anybody at a fantastic price.

Very friendly service and surprisingly a few vegetarian items. It looks a little rundown on the outside. Don't be a snob, give it a try.
