Lonely Planet review for Hell's Backbone Grill
Soulful, earthy preparations of Southwestern dishes include locally-raised meats and organically grown produce from their garden. Zen Buddhist owners Jen Castle and Blake Spalding not only feed the stomach, they feed the community, training staff in mindfulness and inviting the whole town to a 4th of July ice cream social and talent show. Dinner reservations are a must. Save room for the Chimayo-chile ginger cake with butterscotch sauce.
