We didn’t know what to expect after hearing that The Skillet is a relatively new place in town to try for dinner. What a great suggestion. We started with homemade chips and margaritas. Their burrito special was amazing as described. I had the two fried eggs on the side to add on top. The atmosphere is fun. I always like local art and there is lots to look at here. We’ll definitely be back on a return trip.

On the way through to Santa Fe the road through Las Vegas was blocked for filming so we decided to grab a coffee. The film crew pointed us towards this café. They know their coffee.

Man, oh, man. We stayed at the Plaza downtown and waffled between having breakfast there or following the TripAdvisor review trail to Pedro's Bakery. I had a moment's hesitation when we parked, Pedro's has not made appearance of their store a priority. Thank goodness we aren't too concerned with appearances.
Pedro and his son have put their heart and soul, and Pedro's decades of experience, into what matters. The pastries are indescribable--out of this world. While we stood at the case drooling, three times Pedro emerged from the kitchen with another tray of right-out-of-the-oven miracles. We opted for a cheese and berry "pocket" that was nothing short of gleeful insanity in your mouth, and a flaky buttery cinnamon and pecan pastry that was pure genius.
Here's the craziest part of our mid-morning visit on a Saturday in Las Vegas NM. We ate two big pastries there with two cups of ice cold milk. We took away two more pastries and a loaf of good whole wheat bread. The bill was less than $15.
I wish I had asked the given name of Pedro's son, his partner in the bakery. He offered a generous welcome to us and others, the kind of genuine engagement with customers that sweetens even most excellent pastry. He has a great energy, and gave us great advice about a terrific route for the next leg of our trip.

We were staying at a local hotel and wanted delivery. Called JC's and spoke with Margo. She was very pleasant and helpful on the phone. Gave me her opinion on which pizzz to order. I think it was Central park. Delivery person was right on time. The pizza was very good.

A small town eatery where friends gather over cold drinks, toast to milestones and retreat to savor a taste of culinary craftsmanship. A local tradition, Dick's Pub & Restaurant serves up contemporary American cuisine with an emphasis on Northern New Mexico classics, locally sourced ingredients and hand crafted cocktails. Our refined menu pairs perfectly with a magnificent atmosphere bursting with rustic charm. You’re invited to step out of the bustling city and into our urban oasis in the heart of Douglas Avenue.
We arrived before 5 pm, and it was getting crowded with locals by the time we finished our dinner. Always interesting to see the cross-section of New Mexican folks here. My husband ordered cheese enchiladas topped with “Christmas” (both red and green) chili, and it...MoreGlad you found us! We are ever-changing to better serve our customers. We offer the best selection of draft beer in Las Vegas— and love to feature local favorites.

Beautiful DQ with chairs and fireplace, which gives you an immediate good feeling. However, ordered chicken strips with side order of onion rings. They were out of onion rings, so had cheese curds as side. Cheese curds were fresh and hot but chicken strips were lukewarm as was the fries and gravy. Wonder if they hadn't been in warming oven? Great facility but make sure you ask for hot food. Service was fast and efficient!

The fat used to make the donuts seemed tired, and the donuts themselves were rather heavy and tasteless. People were grabbing dozens and exiting as I was there, so obviously I'm in the minority here. Perhaps my taste buds have changed over the years, but these don't match up to Charlie's Spic-n-Span's, for instance. Give this place a pass.

Very busy Saturday night but got a table. Told the waiter I wanted bowl of green chili stew and enchilada plate. "No you don't" he replied. I expected a comment about the heat of the chili but instead he said "you couldn't eat that much food so pick your favorite" "Green chili" was my immediate response and I was not disappointed -- the bowl of chili and beef and beans was excellent and the price was excellent and the place was packed. Can't wait till next trip through Vegas so I can repeat the experience!

Johnny's was easy to find, offered parking, and at 4 p.m. On a Sunday afternoon was enjoying a lull. We were greeted warmly. Menu is huge; but we settled on the enchiladas and huevos rancheros. Both plates were packed with extras; beans, posole, and we were offered a basket of sopapillas. The posole was outstanding.
