Samurai Grill & Sushi Bar restaurant offers wonderful food accompanied by good theater. Some Teppan kitchens and sushi bars concentrate on style forgetting substance, but there is no need to worry about that here. The servings are more than adequate whether you choose the sushi bar, or the more formal Teppan grill. Some of the Sashimi specials are priced for the big spender with price tags from USD69 to USD120. Each meal comes with soup, salad, fried rice and assorted vegetables.
If you are in a hurry, but are not interested a burger and fries, the Tomato Cafe is the answer. Local business people frequent this place because of the quick service and consistently flavorful food. Moms-on-a-budget like it here because the prices are reasonable and there is something on the menu for even the pickiest teenager. But in spite of the prices and quick delivery, this cafe maintains a comfortable, unhurried atmosphere where you can dine without worrying about taking extra poundage home.
Don't let the name fool you. There is not a single mention of soup on this restaurant's menu. What it does specialize in, is breakfast any way you want it, a little, or a lot. The menu offers staples like biscuits and gravy, eggs cooked anyway imaginable and pancakes or French toast. Order the Gonzo, a pile of home fries, bacon and green chile covered with cheese and an egg, a popular favorite or a Blackberry Crepe stuffed with sweetened creme cheese-and you definitely would return for some more!
Knotty pine paneling and cowboy prints add to the rustic atmosphere. Try the Cajun T-bone Steak, Teriyaki Top Sirloin, Grilled Prawns or one of their chicken entrees. Come with an appetite, as the servings are hearty, but save room for some of their chocolate fudge cake with ice cream and hot fudge sauce. The full service bar stocks an impressive number of imported and domestic beers and wines. If you prefer a cocktail try one of the signature drinks like the Square Cow Cooler or Golden Margarita.

Garcia's Kitchen is well known by local and national celebrities and politicians. A few years ago during one of President Clinton's visits to New Mexico, he ordered enough take-out from here to make the national news. This is a family run business that began from a little storefront on 4th Street and has blossomed into seven locations around town. Dine in or carry out, this is by far one of the choice New Mexican eateries around. The prices are inexpensive and the food delicious!
