Socorro Springs Grill & Brewery--Socorro NM

We tried this restaurant on 11/2/07 while visiting New Mexico Tech. Fabulous. The green chile hamburger was out of this world, as were the potato wedges served with it. They had a seasonal dessert, pumpkin roll, that is not to be missed. The entire menu looked great, and we can't wait to get back. I'm not a beer drinker, but my husband loved the IPA.

1012 N. California, Socorro NM

      Try El Sombrero, North side of town, East of the Interstate. Very enjoyable and affordable Mexican restaurant.

        If you are in Socorro, you could always take a short trip down to San Antonio, NM (1 exit south on I-25) and visit either the Owl Bar or Manny's Buckhorn Tavern for awesome green chile cheeseburgers. While the Owl is my sentimental favorite, I hear Manny's has a pretty awesome burger these days. In town, the El Camino, on California (Main) Street, used to have great breakfasts and pretty good diner fare. Their green and red chile is good too! I haven't been in about a year or so, so I don't know if it stillis up to par. Perhaps someone else can chime in.

          Thanks. I guess it's burgers or Mexican food in Socorro.

            Just returned from Socorro, where we ate green chile cheeseburgers at Socorro Springs Grill and at Manny's Buckhorn Tavern in San Antonio. Manny's had less texture to it: the chiles were finely chopped and the bun hadn't been toasted. Good flavor, though. And great onion rings. Socorro's had more texture, with large pieces of chiles and a toasted bun. It was also spicier and the cheese had more flavor. My husband and I thought the contest was a draw.

            I haven't been in awhile, but we tried El Sombrero AWB and found it just OK. I'll second the reco for the Owl, & keep meaning to try Manny's, but don't get down that way as often as when we lived in Tucson.

          On our 3/14/09 visit to Socorro Springs, we really enjoyed the roasted garlic pasta with green chilis, chicken and capers, and the Conquistidor calzone, which was HUGE.
