Mary and Tito’s
If I had to choose my all-time favorite food, I’m pretty sure it would be red chile. I mean, I love food of all types, styles, and flavors, but for me, New Mexican food will always be my go-to. And folks, I have very recently found some of the BEST red chile I have ever had. I’m talkin’ about Mary and Tito’s. I can only imagine that for those readers that are native New Mexicans, or even recent transplants that love trying the local fare, this choice of a favorite spot to get a red chile fix is not surprising. I’m sure tons of you have been going there for years and years! When I mentioned to my coworkers that I had never been to Mary and Tito’s, I thought a riot was going to ensue. I mean, these women were upset at me! And quite frankly, they had a good reason.
So this last Saturday, my family and I decided it was the perfect time to go try it out. Right off the bat, the service was fantastic. Our server came right over and made us feel at home. I ordered the huevos rancheros with red and green chile, and a side of hash browns and my husband ordered the carne adovada and eggs. Now, you know how you can always tell if a meal is good by the amount of chit chat going on? Well, let me tell you, not a word passed between us for like five minutes (that was how long it took both of us to shove as much food into our mouths as possible). Our plates were clean. Like seriously clean. It was absolutely delicious! Thank goodness they are open for lunch too. The fact that their 4th and Menaul location is so close to my work means that I will definitely become a regular.
Thank you, Mary and Tito’s, for the incredible meal! I absolutely insist you all go there immediately. You will not be disappointed.
