“Ok if you're not in a hurry”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

We tried the Bistro for dinner while vacationing in the area. It has a unique atmosphere, with some local musicians providing background music. Our food was ok, once it arrived. It took over an hour from the time we ordered until delivery of our food. Thankfully we were not in a rush, but that's a bit too long.

“Lots of friendly locals.”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Also a return to this place. The food is fine but the opportunity of meeting friendly locals makes the place special. They also have gifted local musicians and singers that are excellent and mostly, do not blow your ears aways with loud music.

“Probably the best food in town”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

We ate here twice and both times the food was great. The stuffed mushrooms are real standouts while the general menu items are all very good. You can't go wrong.

Come on a night when they have entertainment and you'll be amazed at the talent. The two cowboys (locals) who were on stage the night we were there were exceptionally talented and a real treat for all.

Recommended.

“Homestyle Cooking but with much better taste than at home”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

Went in for a business dinner with about 8 others. This is a traditional-style restaurant located at the end of the Plaza in Socorro and is equipped with a long bar. Service was excellent and the size of the crowd didn't seem to bother the cook or the servers as everyone was very pleased with their meal. I ordered the Eggplant Sliders (they have Vegetarian friendly offerings) and they exceptional. Several in our group ordered the special and they all had positive things to say about the dish.

“Glad to find this place”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

I stopped here for an early dinner and really enjoyed the Spring Chicken Pasta. The ingredients were all very fresh. I also got a cup of Chai which was served in a huge cup. Nice atmosphere, excellent service, and convenient parking in the lot just across the street. They also have vegetarian options. If I had been in town longer, I would've eaten here multiple nights.
