Had New Mexico-style enchiladas and they were okay, not the Tex-Mex I'm used to but vacations are for trying new things, aren't they?

My wife was delighted to find she could still get breakfast late in the evening but said her food tasted like it had been cooked in the same seasonings as the Mexican food. Oh well, she's picky in every category but men, thank God.

Service was excellent. Seems to be more popular with the locals than tourists. I'd try it again.

We stopped in for dinner after seeing a favorable review and getting a recommendation from a local. Apparently, the chef/cook had taken the night off that evening. My wife and I both ordered enchilada platters. But whoever prepared the food either did not know an enchilada from a hot dog or felt like playing a cruel joke on us. Their version of enchiladas consisted of raw (straight out of the bag) corn tortillas with cold, unmelted, shredded cheddar cheese inside. They topped it with more cold cheddar cheese and some below average red salsa (likely from a jar). Mind you, these things were not even cooked as the cheese wasn't even melted. The chicken enchilada was filled with some dark colored mystery meet possibly stripped from a chicken or turkey drumstick. No onions, no chiles, no flavor. I thought we were in New Mexico - I expected something halfway authentic. Rounding out the experience was a generous helping of canned pinto beans and canned mexican rice - also cold. We went here hoping for a good meal after a long (800 mile) journey that day. Instead, we received a culinary insult. I surely hope that Raton has more to offer than Pipers!

Pros: nothing comes to mind

Cons: bad food, slow service

We stopped here for lunch and enjoyed both the Mexican food and the good service. The green didn't burn but tasted great with chunks of pork that smothered the "3 high enchiladas" special of the day ($7.95). A side of red had a nice bite to it . The place is located just west of the intersection of I-25 and US64 / 87, exit 451. Meals are quite reasonable in price.
