The Short Or­der

Un­less they’ve booked a spa treat­ment, pa­trons at Ojo Caliente Min­eral Springs Re­sort and Spa are go­ing nowhere fast — ex­cept maybe to the Arte­sian Restau­rant, which is of­ten packed to ca­pac­ity. The in­te­rior styling hints at Arts and Crafts, and the am­bi­ence is re­laxed. Menus in­clude ap­pe­tiz­ers, soups,

sal­ads, sand­wiches, wraps, burg­ers, and en­trées rang­ing from en­chi­ladas, rel­lenos, and fa­ji­tas to seafood, elk, beef, and duck. The food is good — some­times even great — but ser­vice needs se­ri­ous at­ten­tion. Rec­om­mended: tor­tilla soup, green chile “fries,” steak salad, fish

ta­cos, elk chops, and caramel pecan square.
