Best pit barbecue. So moist and flavorful. Brisket and pulled pork exceptional. Choice of sauces from honey to jalapeño Unusual coleslaw. Colorful and tasty. Great etched glass room dividers. Patterned tile floors and hefty good quality silverware with linen napkins. Attentive service and courteous staff. Don't miss this one.

We almost didn't stop because w were looking for NM cuisine rather than BBQ, but saw the smaller sign advertising their Northern NM food. 1st stop was late lunch, restaurant was almost empty. Had friendly, attentive service, tasty complimentary salsa. Green chile enchilada and green chile cheese quesadilla were excellent.
Next day we stopped early in the dinner hour and again got the excellent service. Chile relleno & same quesadilla were again excellent.

We stopped to have a beer because it was close to tv RV park. Unexpected surprise. The bartender and Josie were awesome. We have been in the town for two days and VERY sorry we didn't come here sooner. Best place in town for food and drinks.

Very, very good food, prepared in a healthy and caring way! Delicious New Mexican food, (especially the green chile enchilidas), ribs and desserts. Great ambiance where you can actually have a decent conversation with your party not having to talk above the noise. And if you're lucky, Mr. Valdez, a tall, handsome gentleman, will come out to greet and check on you. A total dining experience!

I really like everything about this restaurant! Great ambiance with a traditional New Mexican decor! The service is excellent, and on a timely manner. The short ribs were mouth watering to stare at and once eaten I was totally satisfied. I also recommend the German coleslaw, and homemade, made from fresh mash potatoes. For dessert I really enjoyed the flan, for it was a delightful finish to a good meal! The final price was well in my budget!
