Ordered a chile relano plate, and it was just a green chile dipped in batter and fried. New flash: a TRUE chile relano has CHEESE inside the pepper. It was served with a quarter cup of cold Spanish rice and a few tablespoons of beans; on a plastic plate. Edible, yes but not what I consider Great Mexican food.

We were looking for a Mexican restaurant and this one was recommended by a coworker. The tacos were so good. The shells were the best. The salsa was a little hot but was good.

The Mexican Food is Authentic & Fresh Made. The Salsa is Hot & spicy & oh so good. The Burgers are some of the best, in Silver City. I'm from the mid-west & these burgers remind me of Steak n Shake quality burgers. Yum. :)

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.
