Service can be slow, but food worth the wait. They do get busy. Great family restaurant. Chicken taco plate very good. Burgers are what a burger should be with all the trimmings and big enough to fill you up. Burger comes with a ton of fries. Coldest beers around.

It is obviously one of the most popular spots in Silver City. We ate dinner early and by the time we finished, there were people waiting outside on the sidewalk. Worth the wait, without a doubt. Heed the disclaimer at the top of the menu if you are not accustomed to New Mexico's red and green chilis. Excellent service, excellent food, and a fair price.

This spot is a must stop for those visiting Silver City. It is New Mexican food that is well prepared and well served. My wife and I almost always take out of town guests here and have never been disappointed.
The restaurant is located in the historic area of "downtown" and fits right in with its old time décor. Most often there is a short wait for one of the many tables. Don't let the word Café fool you. It is a good sized restaurant with a broad selection of choices. As is often the case, unless you have a bullet proof mouth, be gentle with the sauces. We generally wait till our drinks arrive to try the chips and salsa.
One sure sigh of a good choice is, during a short wait for a table many of the folks coming in the door are greeted by other customers and staff who know one another.

Four of us rode our motorcycles to Silver City and parked about a block away to wander around the main street. One of the guys had eaten here before so we agreed to give it a go. We were promptly greeted and shown to a table. Attentive service by the waittress and our food arrived in short order. Everyone liked what they had and we enjoyed the ambiance of the busy restaurant. No problem in getting separate checks. We will eat here again when we're in the area.

22 years and I still eat here at least once a week. Great New Mexican food, and while the prices have edged up over the years it is still a good value for great food.
