If you happen to find yourself in Capitan, New Mexico, make sure to stop at the Smokey Bear Restaurant for breakfast or lunch. We were served more food than we thought we could eat, but it was so good, we almost finished all of it!...More

There is nothing much else around, but this place is good for lunch. Simple food, slow service, but friendly. Reasonable prices. Close to the park. Food is not fancy, but good.
