Chope's Town Bar & Cafe- CT
16145 S Highway 28 La Mesilla
North Central

One of the state's most beloved institutions, Chope's has been handed down through multiple generations. The name came from Jose "Chope" Benevides, whose mother started the business in the family home. The neighborhood gives a charming glimpse of small town New Mexican life. Do not miss the chile rellenos, made with pods from nearby chile fields, or other New Mexican specialties. Full bar. Lunch and dinner, but call ahead.
