“Great lunch”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Stopped in for lunch on my first day in T or C. There was a good crowd, and an excellent menu. I chose the flautas - it was a good choice. The waiter was distracted and on his phone, sigh. . .

“We should have went to Maria's”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

We decided to try out el farro after being long time customers of Maria's and I was very disappointed. The menu was identical the only difference was the names and the taste. I don't know how you are still in business, be original get your own menu. I will continue eating at Maria's thank you though.

“Really? You can do better!”
Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

Soppapias tasted of lard and were sort of mushy, served with little packets of imitation honey flavored corn syrup. Mediocre coffee with fake creamer. Just went in for dessert. Hope they have higher standards for a meal, but am not going back to find out. No beer with your tacos?

“Nice location, Great food!”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

This was our first time eating at El Faro, and it will not be our last! We frequent Truth or Consequences for various reasons, and are SO happy we have a new restaurant to frequent. The food is delicious--I love their chimi plate. Don't skip on the dessert either! The atmosphere is quiet and comfortable. The servers we had were all great (we ate there several times), it is a small town, and people are pretty laid back, so if you are used to the fast paced big city, I guess you would feel like you were not getting enough attention--but that is how it is everywhere in NM. Come, relax, take a hot bath, and enjoy some delicious cuisine at an affordable price!

Side note--They do not serve alcohol! Not really their fault--in this little town, they only offer so many liquor licenses, so you have to buy one from someone who already has one...you can see how this can present an issue! Don't let it stop you from visiting!

“Wish we'd gone to the Happy Belly Deli”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Food was very average, chili was bland, and our server spent so much time hugging the local peace officers that it was hard to get her attention. She also seemed kind of miffed if we asked for more coffee, I guess she could tell we weren't locals, so we didn't really matter.

I don't recommend this place, and neither did the staff at the lodge where we stayed, but we didn't find that out until we'd already been there.
