Stopped for lunch on a Tuesday on our way to Santa Fe. Many higher rated places were closed. Eclectic decor, nothing fancy but some nice photos of wildlife and outdoor scenes on the wall. My wife ordered sopaipillas stuffed with a ground beef/rice mix covered...More

On the advice of our waitress we got the flauta plates (3 bean and cheese, one beef). The veggie flautas were not smothered because both of their chilis have meat. Generous portions, including the guacamole. Come in and seat yourself. The tables and chairs are...More

Great food, but very busy and so the sopapilla's were coming out super slow. Most tables just gave up and left without them. The staff was super nice, just think they were super busy.

family owned homestyle authentic spanish food. small hole-in the-wall atmosphere but the food more than makes up for it. Best sopapillas anywhere and really really good green chili. Big thums up! WORTH THE STOP IF YOU ARE GOING THROUGH RATON.

Short walk from train station. Very small, plain structure off the beaten pass. Been in business for over 40 years. Food, service, value all outstanding. Provided tastings of a couple sauces, nice touch. Fresh made guacamole.

Food and service were mediocre. Sopapillas came with the meal - two large ones each. They were good, but I don't typically order dessert. The tacos were small, nothing special. The beans were tasteless. I wouldn't try it again.
