The service was good and the food was ok. It was a little pricey for the area. The night we were there they were out of a lot of things. Really good salad bar.
My wife and enjoyed our meal at Cattle Barons. I ordered "The New Mexico Steak", which is a 8 ounce NY strip topped with Green Chilies and Mozzarella cheese. It was cooked to my specifications to perfection. My wife had a Green Chile beef stew and it was amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant. Great Service, salad bar and atmosphere.

A long time favorite of Portales and eastern NM, this restaurant is the top choice in Portales. They have a wonderful salad bar, fresh bread, and nice atmosphere for dining with a variety of menu items from burgers to tender steaks and seafood.
