Delicious food prepared by local experts. The standard for breakfast burritos against which all others are judged. Nothing frou-frou, just basic, classic, burritos with outstanding New Mexico chilis. Dining is to-go or al fresco. Regulars can learn the secret nicknames of their favorite recipe options.

We ate here today just a few minutes before closing. The service was fast and servers energetic. The lunch burritos were fantastic. I especially enjoyed the red sauce. I'm looking forward to coming back earlier in the day for a breakfast burrito.

We weren't able to stop by this time we were in town- but still think about how delicious the food was six months ago! Make sure you stop and get a breakfast burrito- authentic food at reasonable prices!

This a a Los alamos staple. There classic New Mexican dishes are top notch but the real star is the breakfast burritos. Layered high with potato, egg, your choice of meat, and of course green and/or red chili, these burritos are amazing.

We ordered our food before realizing -- on a rainy day -- the only dining room is the patio outside. One of us had the green chili burger, and the other a burrito; and both were good, not spectacular. No complaints about service, though. It...More

It really is the best place to eat in Los Alamos. We went at lunch and had the bean burrito and the green chili burger. Both were SUBSTANTIAL!!! We took our lunch to a nearby park and that was one of the best parts. We...More

This place isn't much to look at but if it's great food you are looking be sure to give this place a try. My daughter lives in Los Alamos so we have eaten at most of the restaurants there. I have several favorites for dinner...More
