After reading the recent Journal review of Rey's Place, my husband and I gave it a try for breakfast this morning. Watch for the big blue guitar hanging outside the building which is on the East side of Edith. It sure doesn't look like much from the outside and there was only one car in the parking lot. However, the minute we entered and were greeted by a very friendly waitress, we knew it couldn't be all bad. The interior consists of black and white floor tiles, a variety of Mexican related wall hangings and scattered tables. The breakfast menu is complete with New Mexican, Mexican, and American offerings all of which are under $9. I had the huevos rancheros which were excellent. My over medium eggs were perfect. The accompanying papitas are thinly sliced and fried but not greasy. The whole beans were flavorful and just the right consistency. Now, the chile - it was great! The red had the type of heat that builds but does not linger long. The green was of moderate heat with a nice complexity. A flour tortilla was also included. My husband's quesadilla was also very good and it was huge!. It was lightly grilled and the eggs, cheese, ham and pico de gallo all blended nicely for a wonderful flavor. The waitress offered a small cup of the red as she saw him spooning mine onto his quesadilla - nice touch. In fact, she was great : attentive, friendly, and obviously loving her job. I really can't think of anything negative to say. I hope that more folks discover this little gem and spread the word. We were told that they were very busy right after the review but that things had slowed down. In fact, there was only other couple eating by the time we left. We'll definitely return.
