Not I. Not I. I've always grouped all restaurants serving food with green chile as New Mexican. (of course saying that is a sure-fire way to get flamed).

I call a Blake's Lota-Burger with green chile New Mexican.

I think trying to "label" the Mexican/New Mexican food thing, could open a huge can of worms. ( I know, bad analogy in a food thread... )
Mexico, like America has different food taste's and flavors for all of it's regions. Just like Chicago/NY for Pizza, Philly, PA for it's Cheese Steak's, Crab/Seafood is served in different ways on the opposite coasts etc. etc.
That being said. I think, places like Federico's and some of the small stands/storefronts on Central are more like what you would find in Mexico. And places like Sadies, Seferino's, Garduno's, Garcia's etc. etc. are 'more' "New Mexican" in style. Make sense?
Just one mans opinion.
Enjoy all our local flavors!

New Mexican food uses New Mexico Chiles (red and green) which are pretty much limited to the states borders. Sopapillas are a New Mexican thing (invented in Albuquerque) and the traditional way to eat them is like we do in Albuquerque...with honey. Also Truckzter, I noticed on your facebook pics of campus you refered to the SUB as the Student University Building. It is Actually the Student Union Buidling. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed your trip.

I was snooping around the internet and noticed you have an El Taco Tote (http://www.tacotote.com/f1a.htm - broken link)in Albuquerque, on Central & Madison! I used to eat there all the time when I lived in Phoenix (at the Mesa location)... still the best tacos I have ever had, hands down. Is their ABQ location pretty good too?

Why would it do that? Labels have meanings. It is very helpful to distinguish cuisines, so people know what you are talking about. If I want new Mexican food and just say mexican, I will now doubt end up with Tex-Mex.
