Stopped for a lite bite at this gas station based restaurant in Raton. Good reviews brought us here, but should've paid attention to poor reviews. Food was mediocre, beef taco was largely gristle and fat, counter supplies like napkins, watercups, plastic utensils were missing, and...More

This little unassuming restaurant inside a gas station serves the real deal. Authentic Mexican food, inexpensive, and fast. There aren’t a lot of choices in Raton but this place is a jewel. It’s not fancy but is a refreshing change over chain fast food joints.

Awesome! We always stop in here on our way down to Santa Fe. Tacos are so good. We get the number 3 and split it!

It's small and run down. Food is below average. Friendly service. Lots of parking. I do not recommend eating here

Really enjoyed their Fish Tacos and Horchata. Quick service and well prepared. It is in a gas station so its a no frills dining area. Wide selection of choices on the menu.

We did not like the food and this is in a gas station so not real clean seating either. The food was cheap tasting.

This restaurant rating should be a ONE STAR! No service, out of items, needs cleaning, no air conditioning (90 degree day), flys, high prices, styrofoam plates, and the worst refried beens EVER in my life! With a 4 star rating, I thought it might be...More
