We were in town visiting family. Both my wife and I grew up in silver city and live in tucson now. We don't miss a trip to the silver cafe when we are in town. Sometimes we go for breakfast and again later in the day. They have the best green chili in town and beats any of the restaurants... More

I came here with my family and the place was tiny, we barely fit. We waited and waited for our food and when we got it it was greasy and had no flavor. If you want a cheap place to eat rubbery food you can get at Walmart, you can come here.

This place is underrated. We stopped in on a whim (the little grocery store next door wasn't yet open) and had a great breakfast. I had the green huevos rancheros with a side of corn tortillas and my husband had the steak and eggs. Both were great. It's a classic, hometown diner. It's clean, owned and run by women (Nancy's...

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!
