ALMOGORDO

    The Waffle and Pancake Shoppe [Breakfast / Diner]

      950 S. White Sands Blvd.
      Alamogordo, NM
      505-437-0433

      Alamo has a small restaurant with the uninspired name of "the Waffle House". They serve all kinds of different breakfasts, but what the locals go for is the breakfast burritos, with the loveliest green sauce going. Every time our son comes from Michigan, we have to go at least twice.

ALBUQUERQUE

    Blake's Lota Burger Inc [Burgers]

      Albuquerque, New Mexico
      505-255-0974

      The most wonderful Green Chile Cheeseburgers you have ever had. I have heard that the original OWL CAFE in San Antonio NM has better, but I have never been there. I did go to the Owl Cafe in Albuquerque, and as I recall it was very good, but I still prefer BLAKES. If you have not had a green chile cheeseburger, you have not lived

    La Posada [Mexican]

      125 2nd St NW; Old Town Plaza
      Albuquerque, New Mexico
      505-242-9090

      For good Mexican food in a GREAT setting, visit La Posada on the Old Town Plaza. The building was constructed as a family hacienda (the Armijo family IIRC) back before the American Revolution. The adobe walls in the oldest part of the building are thick to help protect against Indian attack. Wonderful romantic setting, but a tiny bit crowded if you hit it at the wrong time. Definitely worth a visit though.

    Frontier Restaurant [???]

      2400 Central Ave
      SW Albuquerque, New Mexico
      505 266 0550

      have eaten there on several occasions, but I have since learned my lesson, and wouldn't set foot in the place if you gave me $1,000,000 in cash and a date with Vendala. Definitely one to put on the AVOID list.

    Los Quates [Mexican]

      Albuquerque, New Mexico
      505-255-0974

      Best Mexican food in the state without a doubt, probably the best in the country, quite likely the best on the planet. It started as a small place, (16 tables) back about '87. The food was so good they had to expand to a second location across the street. Then that had to expand, and expand again, and again. They still have the original location, but also take up the entire city block across the street!! Both locations are packed, AND they do carry out. Wonderful use of Green Chile and Red Chile. The make enchiladas the way Monet makes paintings.
      Voted Best Chile Rellanos in a recent NM poll.

    W.C.'s Mountian Road Cafe [Southwestern / Tex/Mex]

      1501 Mountain Rd Nw
      Albuquerque, New Mexico
      505-243-9550

      Great food, W.C. is a world class chef, and knows his way around a chili pepper the way Colin Powell knows his way around an M-16. He has worked in Key West, Hong Kong, and Albuquerque, so he does bothtraditionall New Mexican Dishes, and his own "New Hong Key" cuisine. EXCELLENT. It is a little place and I haven't been there in a couple of years, but by all means look for it when you visit NM

      Carlsbad, New Mexico
      (505) 887-7714

      This place is awesome. I swear they used pepper mace. I was impressed. Maria's should consider a road trip down to Lucy's to see what real spicy new Mexican food should taste like.

        (505)291-4900

        Just the mention of the green chile burgers at the Owl made my mouth water. Almost feel like jumping in the car and running off to NM. That is one of the main things I miss about NM. Does anyone know how they made them?

        505/983-7929 -- Fax: 505/983-4700

        THE SEATTLE TIMES called Maria's "THE MOTHERLODE OF AMERICAN MARGARITAS!"
        Maria's is indisputably the Margarita Capital of the World (the owner, Al Lucero, literally wrote the book on the subject with a forward by Robert Redford) and also has a very creative and extensive New Mexican menu.
        It's Where the Locals go to eat. I can see why.

        Unfortunately, I thought Maria's was listed on your website for their spicy food. I specifically requested from a waitress Maria's spiciest meal and found it extremely lacking. I went to Lucy's and had a great meal. Thanks.

      Tia Sophia's [New Mexican]

        210 W. San Francisco
        Santa Fe, NM 90005
        (505) 983-9880

        They have wonderful Huevos, enchiladas, tacos & carne adovado & etc. Great NM food with choices of red, green (as is usual in northern NM) or Christmas (both, of course). The menu has the following note: "Not responsible for too hot chile." A must visit when in the city.
        It's rumored that the owner of the restaurant invented the breakfast burrito. Excellent green chile

        500 South Guadalupe
        Santa Fe, New Mexico 87501
        983-5721

        You should book ahead as it's really popular and you can wait literally hours for a table some nights. It's recognizable by an old train carriage.
        Patio open May 22 - September 12

      Jacquelina's [Mexican-Baja style]

        1541 Paseo del Pueblo Sur
        Taos, New Mexico
        505.751.0399

        They were very accomodating to my sister's food allergies, the service was wonderful, and the food excellent! When the waitress brought my dinner, she said she took the liberty to bring me a bowl of their habanero sauce since I like hot! This was very, very delicious - not killer hot, but decent heat and very yummy! They do sell it, but it must be used within a few days.
