Very excellent New Mexican fair in quiet atmosphere with excellent Margaritas. Green chile is excellent as are chile rellenos and my husband loves the shredded beef.

My husband and I go to Los Cuates, was Pete's about once a month and always enjoy our meals. I like the Chile Rellenos and he loves the shredded beef enchiladas. We really enjoy their unique salsa as well.
