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

Chili Works is a little shack in which they do magic with red and green chile. Their burritos will fuel you for days, they're big and delicious. My favorite is a red chile sausage cheese breakfast burrito, but their carne adovada is also killer good.

By far the best breakfast burritos in Los Alamos, and quite possibly the world. From the outside it looks like a tiny shack but the food they serve speaks for itself. My favorite is the christmas, bacon, cheese but you can combine meat (bacon, ham...More

This place is very unassuming, a little shack. We loved our chicken enchiladas. They were fresh, spicy, delicious, and more than I could eat. I will go back if I'm in Los Alamos again.
