Dave's Not Here

From the name of the place to the burgers to the extremely hot green chile, Dave's Not Here is a local favorite. It looks like a hole in the wall, but the food ain't no slouch in the delicious department. Famous for its fries, Dave's Not Here has earned that honor by cutting their potatoes fresh, leaving the skins on and frying them to perfect crispiness.  The menu offers New Mexico fare: a chile relleno filled with melty, creamy cheese and deep-fried, served with lots of yellow rice and veggies and sour cream. Or try the blue corn enchiladas-stuffed with chunks of white chicken and smothered with the greenest, tangiest, most yummy green chile. Be sure to order plenty of tortillas to soften the hardiness of the spice. Not in the mood for New Mexican? The burgers are top-notch. If you ask for medium rare, you get medium rare: still pink inside, juicy and flavorful. Get it with fries and a side of green. Don't forget the homemade chocolate cake: rich and dark, worth every calorie.
