“Worth the drive”

Ranked #2 of 5 Restaurants in Mimbres
Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 May 2015 via mobile

Friends took me here for lunch today. It starts off with a beautiful drive from Silver City. The building and decor are rustic, clean and fit perfectly into the Mimbres Valley. Cows grazed outside.
I had the Southwest Burger, a handmade patty, and with great fries. The meat was delicious and the fries were crisp. Not sure if they were actually handcut fries but they seemed like it. Sodas were in a can but the brewd iced tea was good and unsweetened. The owner waits tables, cooks all the food and also runs the register, though this being a Saturday she had someone waiting tables with her. Both of them were friendly. I'll be going back next time I'm traveling out that way.

I travel to the Mimbres Valley in New Mexico quite often and always plan a meal at Elk-Xing Cafe. Sandy, the owner, is never too busy to give us her personal attention as she does all who visit her cafe. The food is always freshly prepared, delicious, and filling. There is a bit of a wait but the hospitality and wholesomeness is worth every minute. Sandy is a delightful host, waitress, cook, and cashier as is all of her staff. Everyone pitches in as a team to give the most wonderful high desert country experience. When she has entertainment on special nights... it's worth the drive.

Stopped at this log cabin building while driving thru Gila National Forest. Lady owner served up a green chile cheeseburger made with two whole fresh Hatch chilies. Today we tried the Owl Cafe chile cheeseburger in San Antonio, good but not as good as the X-ing! Worth a drive there if you enjoy the forest.

It would be hard to find a more friendly place to eat. On top of that, the Green Chile Bacon Cheese Burger is the best anywhere. Great country menu, delicious homemade pies and cake. Call ahead and make sure they are open.

Breakfast is great. The atmosphere is very "country". The staff is very friendly and attentive. My coffee cup was never empty.
