I was brought to Chris' by my friend Bill, who supplies them with his unique Red Chile/South African tea. Since that first visit, I have been a very happy customer on a half dozen occasions.
They stick with the basics, Huevos Rancheros, Chicken Enchiladas, Pork Adovada,, and Green Chile Cheeseburgers. If you are looking for a more adventurous side of New Mexican cooking, best keep looking.
However, if what you want is the ultimate in these traditional choices, grab a chair. The freshness of the food, quality of the ingredients, the generous portions, the laid back atmosphere, and the easy parking make Chris' Cafe my current favorite New Mexico breakfast and lunch spot among a number of top contenders...La Choza/Shed, Guadalupe Cafe, Atriscos, Tecalote, Tia Sophia's, Tortilla Flats to name a few.
What is special: the potatoes! the green chile, the cheese, and, well, everything I have had.
My hat's off to Chris and the whole staff (both of them!).
