Pur­ple Onion’s Best

Catron Courier - - Front Page - by Kathy Knapp

Tom and Amy, along with their fam­ily, spe­cial­ize in home­made EV­ERY­THING. Not just juicy, mouth­wa­ter­ing green Chile cheese­burg­ers, but fresh sides of coleslaw, potato salad, pasta salad…AND veg­e­tar­ian en­trées. They work very hard to en­sure each and ev­ery item they make is qual­ity, and they don't scrimp on quan­tity.

It feels like you're at “Gramma's house” when you sit down to eat at their charm­ing oa­sis in the canyon in Mo­gol­lon. This is quite a feat in this re­mote lo­ca­tion, as they bring all their sup­plies up a nar­row wind­ing moun­tain road from Alma, 12 miles away, and their near­est gro­cery store is Sil­ver City, ap­prox­i­mately 80 miles (one way) from Mo­gol­lon. Noth­ing beats one of their freshly grilled Chile cheese­burg­ers, served with fresh toma­toes, let­tuce, pick­les, and of course, a thick slice of pur­ple onion, af­ter a beau­ti­ful hike in the sur­round­ing wilder­ness.

I have been en­joy­ing their tasty treats for many years and am very happy for their much-de­served suc­cess!
