Richard's serves basic New Mexican fare (which is a good thing) in a very friendly atmosphere. The breakfast portions are quite sizeable and quite tasty, the service comes with a big smile, and the menu is vegetarian friendly. Breakfast and Lunch only... bring and appetite.

From the chips and salsa to the sopapilla, everything was delicious and fresh. Well worth going there. Inexpensive, local place off the beaten tourist map.
