The staff at the Econo Lodge recommended for great burgers! We were exhausted after a long hike one day and called in a bunch of Mexican food and a hamburger & fries! Yummy! We will drive to the restaurant next time to have a nice sit down dinner.

You can select your own filling. Mine was delicious! The servers were very friendly. Great place to go if you're hungry.

Located in Silver City town center but still easy to find and easy to get to. Lots of parking for customers. I had the tamale plate with two tamales, rice & beans. Very good food! There were plenty of locals coming and going. The restaurant also does food to take-away and for delivery.

We drove for 24 hours from Atlanta and decided to stop here to eat before finding our motel 20 miles away. There were no other customers in the restaurant, so we chose a table in the back. The server came out after about 5 minutes and immediately asked us to move to another table since the one we chose sat... More

It isn't very prepossessing, but some local friends urged us to give it a try. I had the chile verdes bowl, and it was excellent (soup, not the traditional stew). My husband's meal was also tasty. It was full of Mexican families, which is also a good sign. Will go back again when in a Silver City--also very inexpensive!

The staff is better than the food which is decent. I had a Mexican combo and would call it a solid 7 of 10.... Service however was 9 of 10. Lots of locals doing return business. They really treat people well. A nice extra is they have a mixed menu and claim their burgers are the best....lol Might be, I... More

This is the worst Mexican restaurant that I have ever eaten at. The food is definitely sub-par at best. I ordered some enchiladas and they came out cold and unappatizing. Also I had the opportunity to talk with the owner. He was rude and dismissive towards me right off the bat. I have a significant other who used to work... More

First off, if you are using a restaurant.com certificate, make sure you have your drivers license, birth certificate, passport, etc. I couldn't make this up if I tried, it's so udderly ridiculous! If you can get past the commando on that, then prepare to wait forever for your food, which is mediocre at best. Don't waste your time and money,... More
