Review: DeColores offers good food and a pleasant dining experience

By Jennifer Garcia

Finding a decent Northern New Mexican meal on the Hill is not an easy task. In fact, it’s nearly impossible.
Yes, there are restaurants that churn out Northern New Mexican food, but there’s always something missing.
Sometimes the dishes lack flavor and sometimes the chile is no more than bland chile water. There’s no heat and there’s no flavor. Until now.
DeColores Restaurant has been at the same location for years. It’s on the edge of town, so it’s sometimes forgotten. But it’s well worth your while to have a meal or two there.
On a recent Thursday evening, the restaurant was practically empty.
A singer/guitarist entertained the handful of patrons scattered about the dining area.
One look at the menu and it was evident that things had changed.
The prices had gone up slightly, but there was also a lot more to choose from.
In addition to the traditional Northern New Mexican fare, the restaurant also offers a variety of hamburgers, salads and other items.
It was hard to make a decision about what to order, but the waitress was patient, coming back a couple of times before a decision was made.
In the meantime, free chips and salsa were offered to munch away on as the menu was browsed. The chips were good.
