Enchanted Grounds Espresso Bar & Cafe

111 Park Ave
Raton, 87740
Reviews:
The city of Raton in New Mexico does not have much to boast, but tucked right off the main road sits Enchanted Grounds Espresso Bar. This humble cafe slings out a handful of espresso-based beverages, light grub, and a smattering of pastries and baked goods. As I have continued to learn about chemicals and the like, Styrofoam continues to rise higher on my "no go" list. Unfortunately, they pour the to-go's into the deadly chemical. Just think about it... hot, nearly boiling liquid poured into a material that leeches into your body. The lady behind the desk dutifully crafted our cups of joe, and I felt cared for at this humble little stop along I-25. Drop in if you need a fill up en route to the North or down the interstate South.
Chai latte was great, English toffee latte was good, service was not that great--Batista was a bit rude.
Really neat, hole in the wall place in Raton. Came here from out of town, and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was! Their espresso is superb!

I'll go with 4 Stars because it is the only non-chain place in Raton to have a good meal. It was not a culinary delight, but it was a satisfying meal. I don't know why I was thinking I could find a great meal in Raton ( translates to "little mouse"). The staff here were great. Hostess Ivy sat us promptly and had a smile on her face as she greeted each guest. Server, Tess, was professional and efficient. From where I sat I could see a sliver of the kitchen and it was clean and the cooks were working on things quietly. All in all... best place to eat in Raton, NM.
Not sure about some of the negative reviews. Staff was friendly. Food was fresh & beer was cold!! Good value for the food. We were just driving through on a road trip. Much better than chain food if you looking to change things up a bit. Not fancy; just right. Everyone is welcome and treated great. Chatted with a few traveling cross country on bikes.
Great brisket, fabulous manager and staff. Fresh mac and cheese. Blue moon on tap. Good prices.

Oasis Restaurant & Motel

Reviews:
PERFECT. Went here on family vacation on our way to Colorado and it was absolutely amazing. High quality food,scenic view of the beautiful mountains,and fantastic service. Hand-made chocolate milk,homemade cinnamon rolls,and that old-school feel that reminds you of eating at Grandma's. If I could give it more than 5 stars,I would.
We stopped here during a cross-country move. I was suffering from severe motion sickness when I walked through the door and wasn't feeling very hungry. I ordered the chicken salad sandwich with potato soup, which I ended up not eating until later. Both were excellent! However, the best part of my experience was when the waiter, who after hearing I wasn't feeling well, made up a to-go refill of Sprite for me. That kind gesture totally made my day!
Good little restaurant, friendly staff, good food at a good price. Good prices. Decor was a little outdated but very clean.

Oasis Restaraunt

Reviews:
Even though the atmosphere is not cozy and welcoming, The service was very good and warm. We were served by the owners themselves and menu substitutions were available. If you eat anything that you would like with the spicy sauce, ask for their homemade salsa; it was delicious. This is a typical diner on the side of road, when you are on a road trip and on your way somewhere. But for the type of establishment, it was definitely more than expected.
Worst food I have had in a long time !!!! Burger dripping in grease as well as fries my wife ordered the chicken fried steak no flavor ... Food was terrible along with service !!! Do yourself a favor avoid at all cost!!!
Food and service was awful. Burger arrived cold. Sent it back, next one came out cold as well. Chili arrived cold. Sent it back and it came back warm, but not edible. Grilled chicken sandwich was delivered on a cold bun with one piece of wilted white lettuce. Chicken tenders were processed, frozen and over fried. Mashed potatoes were sticky, lumpy, and had absolutely no flavor and the gravy was congealed. Save you time and money. You'd be better off at the fast food options in the area. Robert Irvine needs to pay the Oasis a visit soon!

Sonic-Drive Inn

125 Card St
Raton, 87740
Reviews:
Reviewed for a road trip! This Sonic is an easy on and off I25 when traveling. The service is fast and if there is any problem with your order it is corrected quickly and with a smile. The car hop does all the work and allows you to rearrange things in the car while you wait for your meal. What made me happy was the Frito Pie offering. A hot dog container filled with chili, Frito's, cheese, and onions. Rib sticking goodness.
Highway robbery - almost $5 for two medium drinks? Next time I'll stop at the Safeway across the street for a couple of six packs....
Absolutely! I didn't even have time to pee before the food came out HOT and amazing! I will go back to Sonic on my return home to CA. It was THAT good. Perfect! I even got out of my car to stick my head in their door to say thank you. Oh and it was X-mas Eve...

K-Bob’s Steakhouse

1228 S. 2nd Street
Raton, 87740
Reviews:
Service was very good, abuzz with locals. Overpriced for what you get. My burger and baked potato were luke warm at best. It was not very busy so my food should have been fresh. I recommend going some place else I you can! The salad bar was okay, veggies cold and about average. Wish the food had been better after a long day on the road!
If I could give K-Bob's in Raton a zero I would. I ordered the salad wagon and found human hairs in my salad (Not mine). After waiting for 20 minutes for our waitress to return to our table she said oh sorry I will take the salad off your bill! I commented that I thought the hair was coming from the mushroom container. She discussed this with the hostess and no one changed the container even though other customers were still ordering the salad bar. Gross!
One of the worst places I have ever eaten. This experience was from many years ago. I see that they are still in business so I'll assume that they have improved. This is my first ever one star rating.

Denny’s

Reviews:
This was the best Denny's experience I've had since I was a teen. Prompt service and even the food was better than your average Denny's. The place was old but clean. I got a burger that was hot, thick, and juicy; and the avocado slices were generous and fresh. We were pleasantly surprised!
Stopped in for a late breakfast on 8-19. Pancakes were great, bacon was crispy, and coffee was good. The service was very good even though they seemed to be short a waitress or two. I definitely would return.
Terrible!!! Do not stop here if you are trying to get somewhere! One hour after ordering food our ticket was still 3rd in line according to our waitress. Our 4 year old was starving and so were we so we left! My advice, if you are heading north just keep going to Trinidad for better service and better choices!

Dairy Queen

1630 Cedar St

Reviews:
I am giving this Dairy Queen zero stars. First, they said they were out of onion rings. Second, they forgot to give us 2 hamburgers and a chicken sandwich. Our chicken strip baskets were cold, and they didn't offer to re cook our food when we went back for the rest of it. It was just sitting out, which is disgusting and unprofessional. Had they offered to remake our food and apologize for their inconvenience, I might have given them a star or two. For the only DQ in Raton, they should aim for better customer service.

Subway

Reviews:
Do not eat here. The place is disgusting and the staff lacks any sense of professionalism or customer service. They were cursing and fighting over who had to help me. I chose in the end not to get a sandwich but got one for my hungry child. The thought crossed my mind to just leave, and I would had it just been me. Did I mention this place is in a busted old gas station? Yeah, the kind where the restrooms are outside around the corner and you have to use a key. Just a suggestion to the franchise owner...You might want to rethink the help you hire and update the place a little so it looks less like a skanky old gas station.
