We stayed at Sandia Peak Motel 6 yrs ago, so, of course, stayed there again now. We ate fabulous NM food at El Charritos 6 yrs ago, so of course, ate here again Now. Still Fabulous!

The specialties of the house were standard combination plates, with zesty seasoning and large portions. Comfort food of a type, it provided a very interesting dinner and satisfied well.

Recommend by the manager at Isaletta. Kind of overlooked by our server for 10 minutes. Really? Food was ok. Prices inexpensive. Nothing special. Salsa is spicy hot.

Some of the best New Mexico cuisine we’ve had in some time. We shared the big combo plate with a chicken enchilada side order. Including two sopas for dessert and all for under $20. We will return!

Adovada tasted of nothing but chili pepper. Rice and beans almost inedible. They charge extra for a few onions and a spoon of sour cream. The sopapillas were cold.
