Good food but more importantly, there were a lot of locals in there. The have micro brews on tap and the food was good. Service friendly. Family oriented. I saw a lot of babies with their parents.
The place was nearly full for a Wednesday evening.

The service was good as was the food. Artesia, NM is an oil town and the sulphur(?) odor was noticeable to us as we walked to the restaurant. Hardly noticeable inside the restaurant. They offer a nice variety of dinner options. The bar was decorated with iron pipes similar to what you see on the oil rigs. They also had a display of drilling bits which was interesting. Very busy on a Tuesday evening.

We stopped here on our way to Ruidoso with a party of 4 teens and 4 adults. The menu was varied and provided the basics for the teens and a taste of New Mexico for the adults. The service was good and quick which also pleased us on this day of travel. On the main drag only a few blocks of the major highway between Carlsbad and Roswell, it is easy to find with plenty of parking and we will stop here again when we make the journey through the desert to mountains!

Nice place to go to lunch with co-workers. I enjoyed my burger. Sweet and unsweet tea can get confusing for servers.

We didn't expect to find much because we went through a lot of desolate land to get there and were pleased to have food and beer that were well above average. The food is pub style, but the quality was quite good (far better than British pub food) and the beer very good. Service was attentive and pleasant, as well, and speedy considering we plonked ourselves down at the height of lunch hour. We'll be back if we travel that way again.
