Be sure to eat at Orlando's--the food is the only real Northern NM food in town. The restaurant is so cute, and the service is great. Join all of us locals at our favorite NM food place.

This is our second happy visit to Orlandos. The food is delicious and excellent wait staff. We ordered green chili enchiladas and chili rellenos, both delicious! A little out of town, but worth it.
