We had a very enjoyable lunch at this roadside classic, but we lucked out by getting our order in just before a tour bus poured into the place. I enjoyed the prickly pear margarita, and my wife loved her prickly pear frozen lemonade. We shared...More

Hidden gem in Chimayo N.M. 2016 James Beard Award winning New Mexican cuisine, and now I know why. Sopapilla big your face and as tender as silk, fresh local honey. This after an incredible, perfectly prepared meal. All served in most relaxed environment. If it...More

Recommended by several friends we gave it a try. All I can say is if you think you know Mexican food try this! Best I have ever had. Flavorful instead of just covered by spice. Excellent food, excellent atmosphere. If your near, go!

Great Mexican Food! I had my usual Cheese Enchilada and Chicken Taco. It was the best I had in anywhere in New Mexico! Everyone in our party was equally pleased with their meals. Beautiful setting, we had our dinner outdoors on a busy Sunday afternoon....More

The restaurant appears to be very far from any population center but by lunch time people start to arrive. The service is great and the food is very tasty.

A little out of the way place but it has become a definite go-to for food. The enchiladas, sopaiphilla, and chilies releno (pardon the spelling) are fantastic. I wouldn't be worried ordering anything from the menu. Wonderful.

We both loved our breakfasts. Mrs. had the breakfast burrito and I had the omelette with chorizo. Everything was so flavorful. Easily both the best chorizo and best green chile sauce I've had on our trip. I also had the red chile sauce as well...More

A delightful restaurant not too far from Santa Fe and Las Alamos. Extensive menu featuring northern New Mexico specialties. I tried the Chicken Salad with avocado and it was delicious. Fresh lettuce, tomatoes and carrots. The service was excellent and the portions very large. Reservations...More
