These 7 Longest-Standing Restaurants In New Mexico Have Served Mouthwatering Meals For Decades
New Mexico is no stranger to being recognized for its impressive history. Oldest standing house in the country? Check. Oldest church? We have that too. The oldest continuously-inhabited community in the U.S.? It’s right here in the Land of Enchantment. And when it comes to food, New Mexico is home to some wonderfully established and delicious restaurants that have served their communities for decades. How many of these restaurants have you had the opportunity to dine in?
