My first comment to those of you who have never been here before. You will be very amazed at the caliber of restaurants here in a small city of about 60,000, in the middle of a very poor and isolated state. I know I was when I first moved here from Southern California.
As other art forms thrive and excel here, so does the art of cooking I have found. The other thing is that the mix of Spanish, Mexican, Pueblo, and American cuisines converge here. So what normally would be American cuisine is blended with touches of Pueblo styles or Mexican or Spanish styles and visa versa.
