The New Mexico Restaurant In The Middle Of Nowhere That’s So Worth The Journey

Some of New Mexico’s best restaurants are nestled in small towns in the middle of nowhere. However, it can be hard to know which places are worth a detour. Chope’s Town Café and Bar is definitely out-of-the-way, but the chile rellenos and enchiladas make it absolutely worth the journey.

Chope’s is located in La Mesa, which is home to 728 people. It’s roughly 18 miles south of Las Cruces and 34 miles north of El Paso.

Chope’s address is: 16145 S. Highway 28, La Mesa.

The restaurant is closed on Sundays and Mondays and it doesn’t accept reservations.
