The short order
You won’t find many road-weary travelers at
Harry’s Roadhouse, despite its proximity to the interstate. Most of the seats are occupied by neighborhood regulars or downtowners willing to make the trek to this quirky, slightly sophisticated version of the American roadhouse. The menu is diverse and includes sandwiches, burgers, salads, pastas, regional favorites (enchiladas, quesadillas, tostadas, green chile stew), and a few dishes designed
for homesick nonnative Santa Feans. Breakfast and comfort-food standards are Harry’s strengths. Specials, on the other hand, can miss the mark. Recommended: buckwheat pancakes, huevos rancheros, buffalo burgers, wild mushroom pizza
with prosciutto, and pork ribs.
Ratings range from 0 to 4 chiles. This reflects the reviewer’s experience with regard to food and drink, atmosphere, service, and value.
