Fodor's Expert Review Carmen's

$ Gila National Forest American

Here's a great little place to stop on NM 12 in the northwestern reaches of the Gila National Forest. Not just because of the spicy enchiladas and chicken-fried steak, but because once you leave the hamlet of Reserve, New Mexico (population about 300), dinner options are scarce— Quemado is about 55 mi to the north. Alma and Glenwood are about 40 mi south.
