I went once for lunch a while back and everything was really good, but we also split a pitcher of margaritas (delicious) so I'm not sure I remember the details too well ;-) I went again recently for breakfast. Before the main restaurant opens, there's a little "cafe" entrance around the back for takeout, but they also have a very laid back little dining area. My boyfriend and I went and ordered breakfast enchiladas and huevos rancheros, and it was awesome! It was actually less expensive than the regular restaurant and the chile was incredibly tasty.
This place is pretty awesome. The patio is super cute even if it wasn't open and ready for use. I have not had good Mexican food (unless I'm cooking) since I moved to Nevada 11 years ago. I'm visiting some friends here in NM and the only real thing to do on the agenda is Mexican food. My friend said this was the place and she was not kidding. I had stuffed sopillas with ground beef and red chile. Perhaps my taste buds have become wussafied cause this stuff was pretty hot. I powered through it and ate every bit of it. The refried beans were yummy and the rice was just ok. The price was right.. I just wish I had a chance to go again before I left. Can't wait to get back to the motherland and come back here again.
