September is chile harvest in New Mexico and there will be roadside
stands dedicated to roasting this state’s firey food! This month the
Roadhouse is celebrating the flavors of New Mexico. We’re celebrating
the harvest by serving specials which showcase the firey flavors of the
New Mexico Green Chile.
How Much: A La Carte
Menu. Prices Vary
Zingerman’s agrees that these are the best. If you still

Note that the quality has nothing to do with how hot they are.
It is the favor that persist, after the hotness fades, that
makes the difference. Plus how full of sunshine you feel for
the rest of the day.
