My favorite place in town. The best coffee, great pastries but the selection of used books tells me this is a community of serious READERS! I asked the owner where she got all the wonderful selection of books and she said almost all from right here in TorC. Loads of good mysteries, great non-fiction and fiction too. Welcoming and comfy atmosphere and the monthly Sunday 1 pm poetry readings are lively and crowded......talent here! If you visit TorC this is the place to visit!
Great little bookstore!! Good selection and very well priced. The owner was lovely and helped us find whatever we needed. The snacks were local made and delicious!
Such a great store. Great selection of books. Coffee and pastries yummy! Just a great place to relax!

Reviews:
I was in Truth or Consequences for weeks doing work at the spaceport. We had a bunch of Texans and a big group of Purdue students, and everyone found something they liked. The wine and beer selection was really impressive. I went to every restaurant I could in TorC, and this is by far the best one.
Delicious modern Italian place in T or C. We have eaten here many times. The sangria is my favorite item. It is homemade and so just so darn delicious!! They add cinnamon and tons of berries. Everything we have had on the menu has been great. The calamari app is crispy and has wonderful flavor. The Caesar salad is ok but the eggplant croutons on it are very good and add something different. Their pizza is yummy. The white pizza is my favorite and we add grilled chicken. The tiramisu is the perfect way to finish the meal. We have had some pasta dishes and they have all been quite tasty. At times they lack wait staff but the atmosphere and the food make up for it. Some items are a bit pricey but I think overall Bella Luca is worth it.
Food is good - though when we visited on Labor Day, they were out of a lot of the items. Caprese salad is a must have. Service was friendly. But be prepared to go home with a light wallet if you have anything more than pizza....it's a pretty pricey place.

Best steak in town!! Always consistently good!u
The steak is amazing, the rest of the food so-so. Entrees are a little expensive but with $5.95 kid meals as a family dinner it's reasonable. Unashamed throwback to a schmaltzier, butterier time!
Salads fresh, veggies crunchy, chicken and shrimp tender, no knife needed to cut chicken, steak cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth, baked potatoes delicious. Wide variety of wines. Atmosphere outstanding. Love having drinks on the patio. I would definitely make this a frequent haunt!

Reviews:
Food is good, portions are big. Usually go for breakfast and always enjoy the food. The diner needs some updating. Some of the booth seats are ripped up so the owners need to update the diner.
Walked in and was not greeted just told to take a seat any where. Very grumpy waiter. Looked for a booth that did not have the upholstery sticking out. Not much luck. So then just looked for a clean table, none. You would assume it was busy but it was not. Cleanliness is not a priority here. Waiting for about 5 minutes I got tired and left. So I cannot comment on the food. Up the street is Blake's Lotta Burger. Wonderful place to eat and nice and clean.
Wait staff slow and rude. Food average.

Reviews:
The cheese enchilada plate was delicious!
Prices higher than what had been previously reviewed. We got the guacamole salad and the breakfast burrito. Nice they took us in 10 min to closing. We didn't realize they closed at 8 pm. Good food but not a great place for vegetarians as all their food is cooked with lard including their beans. They looked at us kind of strange when we asked them to please cook the eggs in vegetable oil instead of lard -but were willing to do so. Also, one other bad thing that happened, which could have been an isolated case, was that I had the runs after eating the guacamole salad but the others did not have any issues. maybe I ate too much of the really great tasting salsa. Interior decor could use some cleaning and updating - dusty.
Good food, good service, good prices. I'l be back.

La Cocina Restaurant

1 Lakeway Dr
Truth or Consequences, 87901
Reviews:
My wife and I tried this place, and it was awful. The chili is more like tomato sauce, both the red and green chile were not even spicy at all. My wife ordered the chicken enchiladas, and they gave her ground chicken! She took two bites and left the rest on her plate. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place at all costs. Buy some burritos from Walmart lol
I think it's time La Cocina and I go our separate ways. I've been hanging out with that same ol' enchilada for about two decades and all I can say is that while I've improved and grown, old enchy has done nothing but gotten boring and lazy. "Look at you! You used to be the ULTIMATE enchilada and now, now your nothing but a $17 dried out bland flavorless pile on a plate. You still have the same ingredients except for the love. Where did the love go?" No heat, a mere speckling of chile, stale tortillas, and minimal cheese precipitated a drying, blandifying effect. I lost my horny.
The place was not bad, waitresses were not very friendly but were efficient. The food was mediocre at best, but I have to admit the RED chili was damn good.

Denny’s

2255 N Date St
Truth or Consequences, 87901
Reviews:
Our server, Aaron, was friendly, patient and accomodating... as were the cooks. The food was prompt, accurate and thoroughly enjoyable. I actually kind of despise Denny's in general and only stopped here due to a lack of better options. It wasn't busy so there was no wait to sit down, the establishment was clean, and we were easily able to find healthy, and filling meals (by slightly modifying the menu). My 6 year old son and I, were both pleasantly surprised by the all around experience.
There is only one way to describe this place-disgusting. I ordered to go for my dad and myself. I had blueberry pancakes, which were raw in the middle and dad had spaghetti. His was bad and they forgot the garlic bread and salad. I was very disappointed and next time I'm in town I will not be going there.
This place just keeps getting worse. Not sure how bad they can get but i wont be back to find out. Hope they get better because they cant get much worse.
