Started out great. Hostess was very friendly and we were served adult beverages quickly. Ordered their house special burger which comes with complimentary soup, which was a good thing since that was the only food we ate. About half way through our second beer our server inquired about our food. The kitchen had served it as a to go order and it had been sitting in a styrofoam box. Worse yet, they simply took it out of the box and put it on a plate. We refused it and the waitress was very apologetic, however no one offered to make us a fresh burger. We finished our beers, paid our check and left.

Asked the hotel front clerk for âlocal optionâ for lunch. She recommended Sofiaâs. Small âcafe likeâ place. Middle of the day wasnât busy. Server was attentive enough and food came out at an acceptable pace. Per severs suggestion ordered a beef-onion-mushroom sopapilla. It was ok. Shredded beef couldâve had more marinated seasoned and couldâve been more tender, but it was still good. The flaky dough was really good. Tried both the green and red sauce-both ok, nothing spectacular. Reviews suggested the green is hot-I didnât notice. The rice was red and more like Spanish rice than my experiences of typical Mexican rice. But Iâm not a Mexican food connoisseur so it may hail from a region and actually be typical Place could use a good cleaning: dust and cobwebs on walls and ceilings. Mini blinds/ I wasnât sure if they were painted or dirty or both. Nothing a top-bottom scrubbing and lite coat of paint do spruce the place upIâd sorta recommend it, but not a top tier place

While Don Juan's looks like it is off the beaten path (if you are driving North/South on the Interstate), it's really very easy to locate in the center of town. We walked in a little before Noon and the place was deserted. We asked to be seated outside under their covered patio (nice and cool). We ordered Chile Rellenos, Green and a Red Chili Burrito, and Tamales. They were temperature hot and mildly spicy, so if you are not a native New Mexican, you are still likely to find these items really, very tasty. When we left the patio, we walked into a full dining room teeming with diners. Don Juan's appears to be a local favorite.

This place, which is now called âLos Sombrerosâ (plural), misses the mark in several departments...1) the grounds are unkempt with weeds growing all over the front...the place looks rundown...2) the wait staff looked a little out of it...like they really didn't know what they were supposed to know or do...3) the cheese on the food (we had a cheese crisp) was only half melted!...4) the âmini tacosâ plate should be called âmicroscoptic tacosâ they were so small...5) the wine margarita was so unenjoyable because they use a mix that is almost too tart to drink. I had the feeling we were not the only ones that felt this way...it was Saturday night and the place seemed rather empty with only a half dozen customers!

This is a simple place - formica tables and looks very basic when you walk in. But - the flavor is not basic at all.In Socorro, I usually eat green chile. I always think of red chile as more Albuquerque or further north. But, Pasadita makes an amazing red chile.I usually get a red chile enchilada with egg. I like whole beans with it. You wouldn't think that 2 tortillas, onions, cheese, sauce and an egg would be so filling. But it is - both in stomach volume and in flavor.The best accompaniment is - sopapillas with honey. Sopapillas are not dessert and are eaten with the entree - often as a cooling agent. We don't like to say it, but if a little honey drips into your sauce, so much the better.Another favorite is just red chile and beans. - served in a bowl. Doesn't get any simpler than this. And it is so good.Don't get me wrong - the green chile is excellent here. I just can't get past the red!
