Asked the hotel to suggest a place to eat. She said all the locals go to Hillcrest. Good food and fair prices. Las Vegas, NM is a small town and we took the advice of the hotel staff. The food was excellent. The salsa was fresh and tasty, the entrees were a decent portions. We saw lots of families come... More

We loved the tacos! We both like cheddar cheese fried in a skillet so these were of interest to us. They fry cheese on the outside of the fresh corn tortillas then fold it over resulting in an intense cheese flavor. The salsa and green sauce were tasty- spicy, but not too hot for us. Our waitress Patsy was a... More

We first discovered this restaurant 8 years ago on our way to Texas. Now we look forward to stopping for lunch to enjoy their delicious tacos and salsa. Everything is fresh and hot. You may have to wait a little bit if you arrive during the peak lunch hour but it will be worth the wait

Stopped in for EARLY Breakfast (6:00 AM) several "locals" on site - greeted, served fresh coffee and ordered quickly! Definitely Old School type restaurant- cute & well kept - generationally managed and owned resulted in a comfortable, tasty meal. Ordered the Enchiladas & Eggs - very tasty enchilada sauce & authentic-

We ate here for for breakfast 2 days in a row. Both times it was good tho not prepared exactly the same on the second day. Guess it depends on who is cooking that day. But really good. Nice big portions, good coffee. Pretty popular place in the morning. Good service.

Went by to look at the Longmire filming location and stopped at this resturant on way back to the interstate. Had an old fashion feel to it and the food followed that theme. I had an open face roast beef sandwich that reminded me of the great diner food of my youth. Folks were friendly and helpful too. Plan on... More
