Born and raised in the great state of! I feel that New Mexico offers so much more than just green chile, we're far too under appreciated and overlooked. I'm proud to do whatever I can to help change that!

    Sunset Run is a great place as well. Veteran owned, this place offers a great atmosphere inside and out. You can walk just a few steps away, before your dining experience and enjoy a visit with the goats, cattle, chicks and ducklings, kids enjoy helping themselves to the feed trough to feed the little birds. Inside is a motorcyclist dream, with Harley, motive along with other motorcycle labels. You will find a relaxed setting, with a tv, a selection of beer to choose from. You can purchase a Sunset Run shirt as a great reminder of you experience, and if you lucky the owner will come out from his homemade cooking and sit a spell with you and shoot the breeze. The menu has a lot to offer from kettle cooked chips, to rack of ribs. The chicken fried steak is as big as the plate, my personal fav…. the mac and cheese non of the box stuff. They have good barbeque sauce from mild, to hot and oh my word get me a hankie They offer great desserts as well, ice cream, bread pudding, but I suggest don’t leave without trying their no no pie, my daughter even made up a song for it. A family oriented place they also offer a hay ride at Halloween and at Christmas through their groves, and pasture. Take a ride over to the Sunset and sit a spell.

    Commenter Donna, does your son own Sunset Run? Lol

    Stella Vita? Really? They pretty much just do catering now. There are NEVER cars parked in front, never open

    This list is suspect…and I believe it was compiled from just the author’s list of personal favorites, or in keeping with Alamogordo values, who bribed the author to make the list.

    I love the restaurants in town. If the food is great and the service is ok, I’ll be back. If the food is great and the service is great, even better. I’ll be back with friends. If the food is great or even fantastic but the service or friendliness is lacking or non-existent, I may go once a year or less just to see if it’s changed. I’ve been to Hi D HO twice in 4 years…’Nuff said. My favorite places are Jam-ing Hotdogs & More, Blakes (For burgers in town they win hands down), Eddies, & the pizza mill.

    I didn’t realize that Alamo had 10 restaurants! Casa de Suenos is one of the best around, but really Hi D Ho, Brown Bsg and Pizza Mill at the top?!?!? Someone needs to come in and seriously invest in some good restaurants:/

    Most of these restaurants are closed or have terrible food. Chili’s or Applebee’s are your best bet if you don’t want to be sick
