However the contemporary steak and seafood delicacies which are on offer, immediately bring you back to the present. The seasonal menu is an added attraction, so you can relish the best of every season. Shrimps, lobsters and some mouthwatering desserts are the specialties and are available all seasons.

As the name implies, Wing Stop specializes in wings, both traditional and boneless. Depending on how many wings you order, you can choose between one or more of the flavors, including traditional hot, mild, or atomic, Cajun, lemon pepper, garlic Parmesan, barbecue, Hawaiian, or teriyaki. All the wings come with either ranch, bleu cheese, or honey mustard dressing. With a very basic menu, the restaurant only offers a few side dishes. The freshly cut fries are made in house daily and come seasoned with a slightly sweet, slightly salty seasoning. Other side options include cole slaw, baked beans, or potato salad. Wing Stop is casual, but diners can order their wings online to skip the wait. Last, the restaurant usually offers special family packs for special events, like the Superbowl. - Lydia Schrandt
Monroe's is where native New Mexicans go to get their chile fix. The restaurant serves authentic New Mexican cuisine, which is a very particular style of food that draws from Mexican and Pueblo Indian culinary traditions. Almost everything on the menu, from enchiladas to chile rellenos (green chiles stuffed with cheese or meat and deep fried), comes with your choice of red or green chile, both made from the same plant. If you're feeling adventurous and want to sample both, ask for "Christmas". For those who can't take the heat of spicy chile, Monroe's also has a "gringo" menu that includes hamburgers, sandwiches, and fried chicken. Save room for dessert, as the restaurant serves green chile apple pie and chipotle cherry pie, as well as traditional Mexican flan.
