We both ordered the ala carte ground beef and cheese enchilada stack with half green chile and half red chile. We liked the green better and would skip the red next time. The food and drinks were tasty reasonably priced, and the service was excellent!

Plenty of cheap, filling, basic Mexican food. Many combination plates at around $10. Beers as low as $2.99. Quick service. Location is right off I-25.

My husband and I stopped here on our way home (Roswell nm) and had red beef enchiladas and they were very good. Just enough spice for us New Mexicans. Home made chips and salsa were great and huge sopapillas and honey. My kind of restaurant!
