When we are in unknown territory we trust Tripadvisor, and our visit here was no exception. We had a fantastic lunch that provided a "New Mexico challenge" for our spice tolerance, but the desert that came with our meal calmed the fire. This was a wonderfully friendly stop for great, fresh, homemade cooking. We will plan to return. Stop in if you are near! :)

A little place on Historic Route 66, The food is excellent and plentiful. Their homemade salsa is fantastically beyond words. As they proclaim in their menu, it's not Mexican food, it New Mexican Cuisine. The Chile Verde with potatoes and pork is terrific on the enchiladas. This is a must visit when in Santa Rosa!

Just what we were looking for! Not fancy, just great cooking! We had a delicious beef enchilada plate with red chili sauce and cheese. Oh my goodness! While it was almost too spicy for this Texas girl, I could not stop eating. We carried the accompanying sopapillas home with us, but ate the hot custard dessert, made fresh each day. You will not go wrong by stopping at this Route 66 gem!

Stopped by this restaurant October 12 and 13 while visiting the area with a friend. I ordered the chile rellenos plate which comes with one relleno but I added another for a modest upcharge. The plate was very generous and one relleno is probably sufficient for most appetites. At the end of the meal the waitress brought us a wonderful custardy flan type desert (which comes with all meals) called a natillal--na-tee-yal. It was delicious. I'd give them a 4 1/2 but don't seem to be able to do that.

Wanted some good mexican food so we stopped and got the enchiladas to go back to our hotel - food was excellent, and the service was prompt and very friendly - great choice.
