Historyljc,
You're always welcome here in Denver.
Here is a cool spot for you to hit on your way up.
http://www.northenddiner.com/
It is in Colorado Springs.
I would recommend it to anyone who is traveling that 25 corridor between Cheyenne and Trinidad.
Good. Good. Stuff. Their green chile is almost as good as the goods I get in my hometown Santa Fe.

Here is another tip for the Team.
If you are EVER traveling around New Mexico and run into a Burger Franchise called "Blakes Lotaburger" stop in.
Get any of their massive burgers topped with fresh roasted Hatch NM Green Chile.
I get the 'Double Meat, Double Cheese, Double Chili Lotaburger".
Oh man.... I think I will jump in the truck and head down to Santa Fe for one.
I am not a big fast food/franchise eater but I will promise you that a stop to Lotaburger is worth prioritizing.
Great stuff!!!
You can only find them in New Mexico but there are 75 of them statewide so you will definitely run into one if you travel about the Land of Enchantment.

Safe travels.....

I tried to Google Blakes, it would come up but not open. I'm pretty sure it was a Blakes we stopped at several yrs. ago. We (3MHs) were coming back from Red River to our friend's place in Clovis and on his recommendation stopped for lunch at this burger place on old Rt.66 in Santa Rosa not far from I-40. It was a sit down place and had a huge parking lot behind, plenty of room for the 3MHs and toads. Anyway I had the Green Chili Cheesburger. Wow is all I can say. Sure can't get anything like that here on the Gulf Coast. Can't wait to go back.
On the New Mexico kick, have you ever been to the Tamale Factory in Deming? Tamale's and other things to go. The Pork tamale is awesome, less than $5/doz. and one is a meal.

Hi Dave!
You're making my mouth water.
The Tamale Factory in Deming does indeed have the best Tamale's I have ever had. Being a native New Mexican I have had some of the best.
I have been trying to find the Deming Tamale Factory online. No luck. In lieu of that, I have found a very, very good source of Tamales. "santafetamales.com" Been in Santa Fe for over 30 years and I was one of their first customers in 1979.
Give em a try if you need a fix and can't wait to drive to NM.
Just ordered several sacks of Crawfish from the New Orleans Seafood Co. Nothing like a good boil to get the springtime rolling.
Les Bon Temp Roulez....

Martin I can't remember the name of the factory that makes the tamales in Deming but it is located on Popular Street.I always go there and get lots of them.

Thanks Martin I'll put them in the book. From the pictures on the website it looks like my kind of place.

Will be glad when we get our plate cleared and we can get on the road out west.

Wow Gossen, you've made my day. Already saved that site to favorites and e-mailed the link to my buddy in Fredericksburg, Tx., he's the one who took us there when we were at a rally in Las Cruces. This was on the way back from lunch at the Pink Building in Palomas, Mexico. Pretty fine Mexican eating in itself. We'll have tamales here in the Big Easy by next week, the Chile Rellenos, my favorite Mexican, dish look good also.
We've got great seafood & creole dishes here but decent Mexican or Smoked Meats/BarBQ are just about nonexistant so when we head West we tend to pig out.
Dave

Excellente'!
Do not forget that making Rellenos is one heck of a lot easier then putting together a good Etouffe!
If you need the steps let me know!!!
We should probably put up another thread that just has folks recommending their favorite BBQ spots.
That would be an interesting list.

Martin,

Should we add to this list places to avoid. There are some eateries out there that are awful and really should be avoided!

Don and Sweet Sue's in Palm Springs, Ca. close to the airport on Ramon. Large very well prepared lunches. People flock into this place for the breakfast omletes also. I shouldn't be posting this as it is to crowded now.
