Who would think you could find excellent Mexican food at a gas station. You won't be disappointed if you like authentic Mexican food. We will definitely eat here again when we visit Raton again.

Didn't want to hit any of the standard hwy stops, and at first glimpse Alfonso's, attached to a gas station seemed questionable. But not finding much else in the downtown area we checked the reviews and thought we'd give it a try.

It was downright awesome!

Had a carnitas burrito and mini-tacos as well, they were quite tasty!

If you get a chance to stop by, give it a go!

We had really low expectations walking into a gas station restaurant in a town with a name that means "rat". However, I would have been very happy with this meal had I walked into an upscale restaurant rather than a gas station. Although, be warned, portions are huge! The burritos are fat and authentic and have a nice selection of peppers to spice them up with. Best of all, our family of four ate for only twenty bucks! Awesome!

Excellent New Mexico/Arizona style food from this restaurant (actually one of a chain). There was only one cook and one cashier and we had to ask for our table to be cleaned before we could eat. But the food was first rate and servings are huge - you can split.

This place gets crowded by 12:15-12:30 on weekdays, and there's a good reason why -- the food is awesome!

Don't let the Conoco gas station outside scare you away. Try the #12 Carnitas plate -- the pork is succulent, the guac and pico are fresh, and the tortillas are steaming hot.

Don't miss the little fixins bar off to the side with cucumbers, peppers, and sauces inside. Be prepared to get your order to go because there are only half a dozen tables and they fill up fast!
