10Best Says

Group Friendly: Like micro-brews? Blue Corn Café & Brewery's Southside outpost makes craft beer and ale onsite. Their two spacious dining rooms and large bar area are great for groups. They'll put out the welcome mat even if you arrive unannounced. In truth, they would appreciate it if you'd call ahead so they can get the tables set up before you arrive. In summer or on weekends, make an advance reservation or you may have to wait. Want separate checks? Just notify your server when ordering. They've handled walk-in groups of up to 50. Food runs from burgers to New Mexican to comfort. While the menu changes seasonally, a few favorite dishes always on offer including green chile cheeseburgers, slow-braised Carne Adovada (made here with pork shank), green chile stew and mac and cheese made with a zingy Santa Fe twist: bacon and green chile.

Homestyle: Like handcrafted brew with your comfort food? Head to the Southside's Blue Corn Café & Brewery. The packed menu offers traditional pub food and New Mexican or American comfort food favorites. A few dishes will always be on the seasonally-changing menu including slow-braised Carne Adovada (made here with pork shank), green chile stew and mac and cheese done here with a zingy Santa Fe twist: bacon and chile. The result is decadently rich and creamy; packing a bit of heat. Burgers are always on offer including the local favorite: green chile cheeseburger. Depending on the season you may find chicken fried chicken, New Mexico shepherd's pie (made with locally-raised beef), fish and chips or Navajo tacos. Beer and ale are brewed on site. There are always seasonal brews offered in addition to the staples. End you meal with flan or a Stout Float, a take on an American tradition.
