Dining in Raton
Our favorite places
For a small town, we have some pretty good choices in local restaurants.
For coffee, pastries and breakfast sandwiches and burritos, you'll want to go to Enchanted Grounds, located on Cook Avenue downtown. They also have lots of great lunch options.
The Oasis diner and Pappa's Sweet Shop offer full breakfasts as well as lunch, with diner style and New Mexican menu choices.
For lunch or dinner, you've got Bruno's Pizza & Wings, The Icehouse (bbq and burgers), and Reesey's Smokehouse.
Our favorite place for authentic New Mexican food is La Cosina.
The Art of Snacks has some interesting selections for breakfast and lunch, and has a great Frito pie!
If you want to fill up on quality Chinese food, try the Asian Buffet.
Not an eating establishment, but the Colfax Ale Cellar does have some filling brews, and you can order in from Bruno's, which is just around the corner.
Always check first to see who is open--these family owned and operated joints tend to be closed a day or two a week!
