New American Restaurant

“If you happen to go North to Corrales to see the Red Paint Studio and meet Laura Balombini, (as well as other swell galleries), swing by the Indigo Crow Cafe for lunch. Fresh, locally sourced foods and inviting service while sitting under the large cottonwoods is a boost in a busy day of sightseeing.”

Bar

“This place is my absolute favorite place in the entire state of New Mexico! It’s a pub but the food amazing! I always get the chicken fried chicken. The best part is the green Chile gravy that they top it off with. The Nachos are a must all you need is a half size because the full is for a family. Which Let me tell you they are generous with their portions! Also the prices you can’t beat them. It’s a drive but totally worth it! I could eat there every day! Ask for crystal as your server she’s the sweetest and best server there! Also kids are welcomed, awesome place to watch a football game. ”
