On a road trip or passing through? It really doesn’t matter when it comes to these local favorites. If you have to stop and eat, why eat gas station food when you can have some of America’s most unique and influential food in the southwest? Some of these seem pretty standard, but add green or red chile to anything here in New Mexico and you can just about transform any traditional American food. We’ll let you be the judge! For us New Mexican’s, we already know this. But sometimes we have to give back to our smaller communities, especially those who have put some great food in our tummies. If you’re traveling through some of these great towns, please stop and enjoy some of these great spots and tell them “I am New Mexico” sent you.
These are in no particular order, so eat at will!
