Ranchos Plaza Grill is right ne t to the famos Ranchos church -- most famos for it' rear vieew in full adobe walls and butresses. The Grill prepares totally traditional Northern New Mexico dishes which is why so many nativos eat there and it is well priced not "outsider". Red, green or Christmas chili. Because of the church, expect to... More

Drove all the from colorado to enjoy a nice lunch only to find out after we arrived that the restaurant closes at 2:00. Time listed on Trip Advisor says they close at 3:00, and time on restaurant answering machine says 3:00. Restaurant needs to update information. Also rude hostess needs to take customer service classes.

We stopped in a snowy day for lunch. It was crowded but were seated and served promptly. The food was great, lots of choices. We had the fried green beans, salads, and green chili stew. I also had the green chili grilled cheese. Our server was very pleasant. Will be back!!

They served complimentary hot sopapillas for dessert, which we poured honey on and savored every bite. Take your camera because this restaurant is in the same parking... More

I am still learning about northern NM food, and this place just put me through a 500-level course! Excellent food, friendly service, and house-made items all around. No Sysco pre-made menu items here! Oh, and The Sopapillas are killer.

We are newbies when it comes to Northern New Mexican food and this was absolutely amazing. The memory of the honey topped sopaipillas will linger forever. The combination of the spice of the smoky red chili sauce and the sopaipillas was to die for.
