Located in the Old Mesilla, El Comedor Resturant offers New Mexican food to tourist and locals.

The layout of El Comedor suggests that the building had been a house in the not-too-distant past. On a Saturday afternoon, they seemed to be doing a brisk business. We decided to try as much as we could, so we ordered a couple of combination plates. The chips were served with a fresh pico de gallo that some might find a little spicy. My second-grader was able to take a few bites before claiming that it tasted weird. I thought it was great.

The tacos and gorditas were interesting. Rather than just meat, the filling included potatoes. That made them filling, but not as rich as a regular taco, which is nice. The green chile stew was excellent. It was among the best we've had. I would definitely recommend that dish. My son had the chicken strips, which he polished off rather quickly.

This would be a nice place to stop off after spending the morning poking around Old Mesilla. They serve wine and bottled beer.
