Couldn't try the food because the waitress never came for my order. Waited and watched others who came in get service, but felt like I was completely ignored.

Chips and salsa are extra and store bought. Pretty sure the salsa was pace. Green Chile enchiladas were good, I'm used to Las Cruces food so I wasn't impressed but the food was satisfying enough for a road trip stop.

First stop. Won't be the last. We had three different items. Each was delicious. The posole was fabulous. The green chili was quite good, but the red was amazing. The sopapillas were some of the best I've had in years. I'll go back.
