I was watching Diners Drivins and Dives last week and picked up a segment after it had started. I'm watching and thought this has to be New Mexico. NM has it's own type of food. Not as much as Louisiana but still recognizable.
The place was called Sophia's Place.
Deb went on line to the show and discovered this place is 5 miles away. I went by it forever and yes I thought it was just a dive. Watching the food prep on the show I could see this guy wasn't a cook he was a chef.
Sunday we went there for an early lunch. People wall to wall, only 9 tables, and a 30 minute wait but well worth it. It was like eating in an upscale restaurant. Top quality food. Great details. Just shows me not to judge the package.
I'll be back.
