Rte 66 Diner for dinner the night we flew in - had the only breakfast offering on the menu, the” ½ tank “ or something...eggs, potatoes, green chilies…it was very good, and our first experience with green chilies!

The Frontier for breakfast, good, but only gripe is that you have to pay for coffee refills…

Santa Fe:
Try El Paradero if you’re looking for a well run inn, great breakfast and afternoon sweets – supposedly the baker/cook used to own a bakery in Santa Fe.

Senor Lucky’s – excellent and large portion appetizer of fish of the day (swordfish) wrapped in banana leaves served with green rice and guacamole – delicious and I’m not usually a big swordfish fan…My husband had the tacos which were very good as well. We were going to eat in the bar but opted for the dining room as the smoke was a little much, we’re so used to the no smoking inside in CT that I had forgotten what it was like to be in a smoky bar…

La Choza – they make a mushroom soup to die for, if anyone can get the recipe I’d be forever in your debt! The combo plate and burrito plate were just average considering all the rave reviews we heard about this place we were not that impressed. I wanted to try the fish tacos but they were out…Reservations the night before at the Shed couldn’t be had till 8:30 so we went to Senor Lucky’s instead.

Orlandos for lunch – the service was pretty slow, but the lunches were pretty good, I would rate them a step above La Choza.

Eskee’s Brew Pub – the green chili stew was excellent, other than that I wouldn’t return - Greek salad and bratwursts were just ok.

Thanks to everyone for your recomendations, we had a great time!
