After That We Need a Drink

Los Ojos in Jemez Springs

Deer’s a-watchin’ everything you do

Fortunately, you’ve come to the right place. That would be the Los Ojos Restaurant and Saloon in Jemez Springs, NM. Besides a full bar and dishes like a 2/3 lb cheeseburger with bacon and green chile plus damn good service, there’s the opportunity to appreciate the fine art of taxidermy as you sit surrounded by dead things eating ground up, sliced, baked and fried pieces of recently killed animals of all kinds. Tasty, too! Wash it all down with a big margarita and you’ll be almost ready to drive.

I like this place. Weird but friendly, essentially New Mexican. The burger I had was fine and I would have another, although you’ll find the best in all the land at Sparky’s down in Hatch. Still, if you’re in Jemez Springs, you’ll want to check Los Ojos out. I’d go there almost every day if I lived across the road.
