Chopes Combo with Chile Relleno

Chope's Bar & Cafe Review

Pronounced cho-pez, it looks like a run-of-the-mill adobe building from the outside, but inside the 150-year-old former Benavides homestead you'll find happy locals and many turistas eating well-seasoned Mexican food and drinking ice-cold beer and tasty margaritas. Bikers join the convivial crowd in the bar next door; like the restaurant, it's still owned by the Benavides family. It's worth the 15-mi drive south from Old Mesilla for the local flavor. No credit cards are accepted in the bar.
