It was a Sunday, and our first choice restaurant was closed. We made the mistake of stopping at Dandys. My husband ordered a burger and fries. He said it was good. I ordered the fish basket (fish, shrimp, fries, hush puppies). I kid you not, the shrimp was indistinguishable from a small drop of fried batter. Fish wasn't much better...Frozen... More

Passing thru and everyone was hungry so we stopped at this local burger joint . Decent burgers with processed patties , fries were ok and the Diet Coke mix was terrible. I will probably stop at a different place if I ever pass thru again. FYI they have an extended menu but my review pertains only to the burgers since... More

We saw the business and cars around the business and knew it was a winner. We had wonderful burgers. Onion Rings were not the best in my opinion. We were correct; lots of cars equaled great eats!

We ordered 2 burger meals with simplistic variations, which were written directly on the bag our meal was to be served in. NEITHER burger was correct, and when i complained, the manager seemed to be put out to have the order remade. Then there was the fact that the beef patties were well overcooked and dry as an be. I...

Friendly, Fast service and food that is FRESH!! The servers were smiling, and genuine and the wait was not too long. The place was clean, and people seemed to be enjoying the moments.

I sincerely hope they clean it up. and soon! I will definitely... More

Great burger joint that serves local dishes as well. I highly recommend the tewa taco. A piece of fried bread with meat, beans, and Chile. A unique new mexican experience.

My husband and I were travelling to Taos, New Mexico from Tucson, Arizona and we just wanted to get there. But with over an hour and a half to go and concerned that most places would be closed, we turned into what looked like a locally owned "burger joint" when we discovered our go-to place, the Rio Grande Cafe, was...
