Was looking for local Mexican and found it, in the gas station no less. Gave this 5 stars because the food is great and only reason I would have given less stars is because it's in a gas station and that actually makes it better. It's not like they claim something different so embrace and enjoy. The menu is diverse... More

Don't be confused - this place is attached to a gas station - but that doesn't mean it's not delicious food. A lot of food for the money, and the platters come with awesome beans and rice. I also liked the variety of salsas available.

If you are looking for good, fast Mexican-American food (along the lines of Alibertos, Filibertos, etc.), this is a great stop. The seating area is a bit messy (hence the 4 stars) and cramped, but the food is great, and the service was super friendly. We always try to stop when we're passing through Raton.

We would drive 200 miles out of our way to hit this place on a road trip. It serves fantastic, authentic Mexican food at great prices. And yes, it is located in a gas station convenience store.....and yes the servers are more interested in their phones than serving you.....and it still gets a 5 out of 5 in my book.... More

Coming through Raton my wife was googling places to eat & found Alfonso's. Don't trust google exactly get you there: it is located inside the CONOCO GAS STATION. It's a walk up to order window. I had the rellenos & my wife got enchiladas. I freaked out the order girl when I said I wanted green on my rellenos, how... More

Don't know what other reviewers are talking about. It was dirty. They got the order wrong. The food was disgusting. Couldn't finish it. Anything would have been better. First time I've been misled by Trip Advisor. Beware - don't go!!

The food was good but they didn't have some items on their menu. We had the carne asana. The price was good. We will stop here again.
