Cleanliness is a huge measure on my book. So the restrooms were okay, but not exactly detailed. The restaurant area itself was Spacey and certainly looked clean. Another pet peeve of mine are salt shakers. The salt shakers were greasy and a little dirty. The...More

This is NM food. Chilie, tortilla and beans. Relaxed setting. Other places get more attention, but there is a reason locals come here, and have since back in the day.

Thanks for your comments about our rellenos. In 2017, they were voted one of the Top 5 Best of the City. And yes, we use real, New Mexico-grown chiles!

As always, food and service are excellent. They are very accommodating and allowed us to make substitutions. The chips and salsa are the best in town, IMO. The atmosphere is pleasant and the entire staff was very friendly.

Thank you for your comments, especially about our chips and salsa. They are one of our undiscovered secrets. We serve the chips with our own, house-made salsa. We look forward to coming in again soon.

Waitress Katie was terrific, albeit slow to get food, for which I do not blame her. One plate of 4 was far too cold. She did take care of problem. Chips and salsa are better than average, although it is puzzling why they serve the...More
