Restaurant
“Great authentic New Mexican food. Started off as a popular eatery in a dark corner of a bowling alley. Now has several locations that are much more upscale but have retained the original great value and tasted of New Mexico. I highly recommend the chicken enchiladas, flat with a "christmas" sauce ( mix of green and red chile). Unless you are sharing a dish or have an enormous appetite, get the small portions!”
