Fodor's Expert Review Pecos River Cafe

$ Outside Carlsbad Caverns National Park Service

If you're planning a big hike underground or through one of the park's canyons, this casual breakfast and lunch spot is a terrific go-to for its prodigious breakfast burritos, egg dishes, and pancakes, plus burgers and Mexican platters at lunch. Just about anything can be topped with spicy New Mexico green chile sauce, and everything is available for takeout. Alas, it's open only on weekdays.
