My wife and spent the day hiking the cliff dwellings and wanted a nice place to eat for dinner. We went back to our AirBnB and showed. Then drove from Silver City to this restaurant. Only a 15 minute drive. It was just getting dark at 7pm when we arrived. We had reservations. But on a Tuesday, it was not... More

This has a bit of the ambience of an old-fashioned saloon. It looks pretty run down from the outside but the inside is much better. There are large fireplaces and lots of wood. It is decorated with animal heads and lots of old western memorabilia. The wine list is small but has decent wine. The menu is extensive--too extensive to... More

Just outside Silver City, NM. Owners from San Francisco have brought lovely cuisine with them and have added local flavors. Wonderful dinner, terrific service and great Old West atmosphere! Loved this place, will be back!!

Just a few visitors and some locals around the fire. Staff welcoming and friendly. Good drinks and dinner in the dining area. A ways up the road spotted 2 bobcats & later 3 javelinas on the way back to Lake Roberts for winter camping.

We ate in the Buckhorn dining room recently with friends. We found the food to be very good, and slightly pricey. They have fabulous, very thick steaks cooked perfectly. I'd also recommend anything using their Hatch green chili if you're a chili lover. There is a good wine list. The dining room was mostly empty the night we were there.... More

My wife and I had traveled quite a few miles that day and we decided to eat at the Buckhorn Saloon & Opera House. It sits on Main Street in Pinos Altos. Parking was in front on both sides of the street. You could see that it was little changed from its early days. We came early before the dining... More

My wife and I went out to the Buckhorn for a Good Drink and Food, we were not disappointed. I had the Buffalo Burger and Nancy had the Cesar Salad. I exchanged my fries for Clam Chowder. good stuff.

My sister and I ordered the rib eye, our friend ordered the filet. Our friend did not comment on her steak, but both my sister and I were very disappointed in our steaks. They were quite thin and full of gristle and fat. My leftovers went in the trash. Given the price of $35 each I would expect something better.... More
