ABE'S CANTINA Y COCINA

Some people might consider Abe's Cantina y Cocina a dive, but it has the best hamburgers, tamales, burritos, etc. around.  On one side of the small building is a bar and on the other is a grocery store and restaurant.  Abe's is located on the main road (NM 150) that goes through Seco.  Give it a try!

ORLANDO'S NEW MEXICAN CAFE

Festivity reigns in this spicy little cafe on the north end of town. Serving some of northern New Mexico's best chile, this place has colorful tables set around a bustling open kitchen and airy patio dining during warmer months. Service is friendly but minimal. Try the Los Colores, their most popular dish, with three enchiladas (chicken, beef, and cheese) smothered in chile and served with beans and posole (a Mexican stew). The taco salad is another favorite. Portions are big here, and you can order a Mexican or microbrew beer, or a New Mexican or California wine. - Frommer's Review
