Road trip in New Mexico - Where must we eat?

mleighn | Jun 18, 2011 08:10 AM


Later this summer, my boyfriend and I will be doing a road trip from Houston, TX, to Boulder, CO. We are going to spend about 2 weeks doing it and are planning on going at a very relaxed pace just stopping off on the way and making detours toward whatever looks fun! Two stops on our trip will be Albuquerque and Santa Fe and we are really flexible on the route or other places we may get recommendations to visit.

We are looking for recommendations for delicious places to eat along the way! We are really open to any ethnicity cuisine. We are both grad students so don't have too much extra spending money but we are willing to spend more for the occasional nicer meal. Anything with a sustainable or local spin would be great too. We love barbecue and mexican (and any texan/southwestern spin on it) especially. Recommendations for food trucks or carts are welcome too!

I will also be posting in the Texas and Mountain States boards, but if you know of somewhere that you MUST let me know about, go for it!
