Now called The Twisted Chili, this beer pub does some things right, but needs fine tuning. I always check a new place's menu carefully - I figure that attention to detail there reflects the parts of the business that we may not see. After 2...More

Also a return to this place. The food is fine but the opportunity of meeting friendly locals makes the place special. They also have gifted local musicians and singers that are excellent and mostly, do not blow your ears aways with loud music.

Ate here one evening while on a road trip through NM. The bistro is a bit funky and definitely popular with the locals. We enjoyed our visit but found the menu a bit limited. Got there early, but the 'special' was not available that day?
