Opened in 1994, Boxcar Cantina is family owned and operated, featuring an authentic Northern New Mexican cuisine, which moves beyond Southwest/Tex-Mex food. The Southwest is actually divided into distinct regions, each with its own cooking style and heritage. While each has its roots in Mexican cooking, Northern New Mexican is a blend of the three cultures – Native American, Spanish and Anglo-European.

The Boxcar Cantina family welcomes you to our restaurant featuring Northern New Mexican cuisine. We pride ourselves on offering some of the most delicious food in town by using only the highest quality ingredients. Since opening our commitment has been to source local and / or organic ingredients whenever possible and always use sustainable raised organic meats. We know our customers appreciate the quality of our food and we love serving delicious meals.
