Went here with my daughter and grandson, and there was something for everyone. I heartily recommend the Green Chile Stew. Its very very tasty, spicy but not overwhelming. The ingredients were first rate. The grandson loves the place because the child meals come with an ice cream cone. I had a malted milk shake as well.

When staying nearby, we recently ordered a Whole Chicken Dinner, a to go menu option. What a great bargain! Generously sized portions of chicken, rice and beans. The chicken was juicy and well seasoned. The accompanying black beans were delicious. Overheard another patron expound about the trout. The burgers looked delicious, too.

Stopped in for a Saturday lunch, as I was trying to get away from the conference I was attending - just for a little 'alone' time! Ordered the red chile smothered chicken burrito and thought it was very good - and HUGE. Nothing comes with it - which was fine (I couldn't have eaten anything else - and didn't finish... More

More of a fast-food sort of place, but worth the trip for veggie/vegan friendly fare. The dine-in experience isn't all that, but the food is worth the trip. The veggie/vegan options are extensive, not the typical one to two choices you encounter at most places. So extensive, we had trouble deciding what to eat. We still probably over-ordered because we... More

Fast service despite a crowd of locals and a line of cars at the take-out window. Excellent Mexican food with a New Mexican flair. Green chili stew was tasty and mild enough for out of town visitors. Baja style fish and vegetarian tacos were excellent. Generous portions and incredible value. $2 side salad was huge. Dinner, beer and Sangria was... More

Bumble Bee had an extensive menu that made it difficult to choose. I had a goat cheese chicken burrito and my wife had a paleo mahi mahi and a shrimp taco. The food was excellent and we will be going back to sample the rest of the menu.

They say this is the slowest drive thru in the world but for good reason because everything is made fresh from scratch and very reasonably priced, they have very good Mahi tacos and the rotisserie chicken is also great if you want to take that home!
