Wondering what chowhounds' opinions are of the New Mexico Culinary Treasures Trail. The intent seems to be to highlight the tried and true, or in its own words:

"Here, we celebrate restaurants that have stood the test of time, independent spots that have become beloved in their neighborhoods and beyond. Many of these are operated by the founding family, or by someone handpicked by the founders to carry on their legacy. In all cases they are still family-owned and operated."

Is the food good? Or are these more about nostalgia?

I'm especially interested in whether the three entries for Raton are worthwhile:
