This list is intended to be fluid, subject to frequent changes based on input from others…think of it more as a regularly updated list of suggestions.
For the sake of having time for other projects, and to create a page that loads quickly and isn’t overwhelming, the list will be limited to 20. Currently it is a combination of perennial local favorites, places to take visitors (typically with tame chile, but ambiance), and a couple of solid options for green chile cheeseburgers. That may get parsed in the future, but in terms of compiling suggestions for outstanding local restaurants for chile and comfort food…this is a starting point.
Several of the places included aren’t much to look at. If you didn’t know about them, you would probably drive by without stopping. Others score higher on atmosphere, but often to the detriment of the chile potency.
If your favorite place isn't listed, please take a moment to nominate them using the form below. Please include your name. I will be including that so restaurants know who is giving them shout-outs. Other info is helpful, e.g. What are your favorite dishes? Red or green chile preference?
