I’m happy to have Tio Wally (long-time Me So Hungry reader) aboard to send in his eating adventures from across America. Here he is in Moriarty, New Mexico.
Greetings from Moriarty, New Mexico!

I was headed to Los Lunas, New Mexico … again. Which meant that I had to stop a Lisa’s Truck Center … again. I had to get Chile Rellenos … again. And I wasn’t disappointed … again.
I wrote about Lisa’s recently. The last time I got a to-go order of the rellenos and discovered too late that they’d given me only the red sauce. This time I got what I actually ordered: One with red sauce, one with green sauce.
Both the sauces are great, if somewhat mild. Still, these are some of the best rellenos I’ve run across in my travels. Indeed, I can’t recommend them enough. They’re damn near perfect; I say damn near just in case I find better, which is extremely doubtful. I also got a flour tortilla that could probably cover most of a basketball.
I took more pictures this time. I also went ahead and took pictures of the über-spacious dining room (nine tables!).
All of the food that I saw come out of that tiny hole in the wall (read: kitchen) looked great. And the service was outstanding! (I hesitate to mention this, but my waitress was a true babe. A babetress?
I’m tellin’ y’all, if you’re ever passing through Moriarty, New Mexico make a special stop at Lisa’s. It’s extremely reasonably priced, with generous portions. Great value and Yum Yum Yum.
And so we roll.
