Chama is somewhat limited in restaurants but even with much competition we enjoyed every meal here. Good old fashion place not at all fancy with a great mix of locals and tourist. I enjoyed the pies the most.

Absolutely great tacos- like street tacos, they are authentic and beefy. The salsa is good but not for the timid! Good atmosphere, lots of locals, very friendly.

Their pancakes are outstanding and a great value. I ordered 2 eggs with ham, hash browns and a tortilla for just over $5. Very good.

Lousy, slow, inattentive service. Mediocre food. Canned beans, few chiles in the green chile enchiladas. Unfortunately, there are between zero and two restaurants in town, even at high tourist season.
