Restaurants in New Mexico

Restaurants in New Mexico offer a delightful range of cuisine choices. Authentic New Mexican cuisine combines Spanish, Native American, Mexican, and Mediterranean fare to create a style that is truly distinct. New Mexico restaurant diners can expect an abundance of hot and fresh Hatch green chiles, the state’s pride and joy.

In Santa Fe, dine at Tomasita’s, one of the best restaurants in New Mexico. The restaurant is located near the New Mexico rail runner train and offers up dishes such as chiles rellenos and New Mexican pinto beans. Don’t forget to order a margarita; the giant cocktails are dangerously boozy. Looking to tame that sweet tooth? The annual Pie Festival in Pie Town, New Mexico takes place the second Saturday of September. Enter your pie in the festival’s pie contest, watch the crowning of the Pie Queen or just enjoy a bite (or two, or three) of the delicious dessert at the Pie Town Cafe. After taking in the beauty of Carlsbad Caverns, grab a cold beer and hearty food at Red Chimney Pit Bar-B-Q. This New Mexico restaurant is sure to satisfy the appetite of any carnivore with its selection of brisket, pork ribs and fried catfish.
