This greasy spoon has been open FOREVER!!! And for a good reason. Basically I can describe the food here as a meal that my grandmother would make when angry. Simple and filling.

Like being at your home town Cafe. We stopped by for breakfast and was treated like family. Not to mention that the food was very good...nice portions and served fast. The 'girls' staff were very pleasant and easy to banter with.

Great spot to enjoy authentic local cuisine. Red and green chili are both the real deal but the green can't be passed up. We meet friends here often. Delicious juevos rancheros for breakfast.

Reminds me of that hole in the wall place you find and luck out on the menu. Food was good and prices great, especially for large groups. The only reason I give it a lower rating is the service. One waitress, while 3 stood in the back. She was not enthusiastic to say the least.

Nice little cafe in the downtown area. Very good food but small servings. Their large menudo was the size of small menudos you usually get in other places.

Stopped in this restaurant while 4th of July parade was going on, had breakfast. Nothing fancy but good food, generous serving sizes but not too crazy big. Servers were all very helpful, place got a little crazy when parade finished but they seemed to handle it well.

On the recommendation of a local shop owner, we went to Nancy's for lunch while sightseeing & shopping in Silver City. What a great little place! Wonderful food, right on one of the main streets! Do yourself a favor & stop in if you're in Silver City -- you'll enjoy it!

This is the first time my wife and I have been to Silver City in nearly 30 years. We stumbled into this place by accident and what a find. An awesome place filled with locals. It doesn't look like much from the outside. We had been to two other places which were closed during posted business hours. God must have... More

We love being able to order an authentic Mexican breakfast, like huevos rancheros or another with jalapenos and heat, when we're in the mood. Otherwise, there's nothing like an egg breakfast with real eggs, real eggs.

Thank Donna V
