We came here for an early dinner after hitting the hot springs. We were hungry for Mexican food and Maria's had pretty good reviews on TripAdvisor. It was easy to find and open floor plan. Food was okay, but not what I'm used to from really good southern New Mexico. I ordered Meat in Red Chili (Chili Colorado) and was... More

We typically have the same waitress, but this time had a different waitress, after delivering our food, never stopped by again to check on us. Had to go to register to get the check. While the Chicken Enchiladas were still good, not as great as the first 3 times we stopped there. Not much chicken on them or sauce at... More

This used to be the very greatest place in town after La Hacienda closed down. They sold it to new people though and they have just ran it into the ground. I'm not very picky about salt so when I say overly salted I mean the red chile sauce has multiple times been too salty to even eat. When you... More

Decent, cheap and good! Quick service as well. They do charge if you want to have half red and half green chili.

Nice flavorful salsa, fresh, came with the chips. I had green Chile plate, chunks of meat in green sauce with beans and rice. I was glad to find this place after pulling off the freeway. Restaurant is full of locals, always a good sign. Service friendly and prompt.

We stopped here for lunch based on reviews. OMG, the green chili chicken enchiladas were the best I have ever had. They were delicious. The chicken had been grilled, little squares on top and on inside, which I liked better than just shredded chicken which has a tendency to be tough. The place is small, on the main street. We...

No alcohol is served here so beware!!! Also no horchata! Chips were kinda stale and not freshly cooked. Had the bean tostada and that was good. Don't order the fajitas. Had the beef ones and it seemed like it was not fresh and the meat was not tender. A must have is the Churros, they were delicious!!! Staff was friendly... More

We can't express enough how wonderful this little restaurant is! The breakfasts are superb...I recommend the huevos de la Mexicana, scrambled eggs with green chile, onions, tomatoes, etc. on a corn tortilla plus refried beans and a flour tortilla on the side. For dinners I recommend the cheese enchiladas (2 or 3 stack) with green chile plus refried beans and... More
