And though there are some Mexican restaurants in New Mexico, they are well outnumbered by New Mexican style food.
Okay kool thanks for the clarification,Convict.

There is good Cajun food to be had in Shreveport, believe it or not. Not as good as New Orleans, but pretty darn good. Try Crawdaddy's Kitchen.

All those places are gone now, long gone. The Johnny Reb BBQ place has been Trejos Mexican for the last 30 + years. There are some good places now around here. You just have to know where to go and avoid the chains.

Without good green chile, my tongue would get all shriveled and fall off.

We do have Blake's Lotaburger here in Arizona I know it doesn't count but, it is a New Mexico chain.

There are a couple restaurants here and there, a bit more so in Tucson for some reason, that have New Mexican style but Arizona's focus is Sonoran food and it always will be. I can think of one restaurant down the street from my family that specializes in New Mexican food in Scottsdale. Though that's the only one I know of off the top of my head. It seems to have mixed reviews. I just don't think Arizonans like New Mexican food as much as they prefer the red chile of Sonoran and various other differences. You'll rarely see an Arizonan order green, especially hatched, if that's even an option on the menu. Like 1 out of 20 Arizonans may order green chile.

Seriously folks, neither city is considered a foodie mecca.

Not all that familiar with Albuquerque (wow, that's a challenge to spell - LOL), but I can tell you now that Shreveport is not a food destination to me at all, and I've had a lot of experience eating in Shreveport over the years (unfortunately).

Green chile cheeseburgers do count as New Mexican cuisine.

"Hatch" doesn't refer to a method of preparation (hatched), but to the town they are grown in: Hatch, New Mexico, "the chile capital of the world".

Sonoran is quite different that the local food, but still quite tasty!

I love when we get Hatch peppers in our local stores! My husband makes a fantastic soup with them involving pork loin and some other secret ingredients, topped with sour cream and grated cheese!

Oh I didnít know that, I thought it was ďhatchedĒ

There is a Blakeís on Speedway Boulevard and... I think Country Club, but Speedway for sure in Tucson that is actually very popular. I ate there once and I enjoyed it.

Now what we donít have is Pollos Hermanos, I donít think we will ever get that.

Well, considering it is a fictional restaurant, I daresay I'd take that bet.
