Iâ€™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 inÂ 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 Lisaâ€™s Truck Center … again. I had to get Chile Rellenos … again. And I wasnâ€™t disappointed … again.
I wrote about Lisaâ€™s recently. The last time I got a to-go order of the rellenos and discovered too late that theyâ€™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 Iâ€™ve run across in my travels. Indeed, I canâ€™t recommend them enough. Theyâ€™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 Ã¼ber-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?
Iâ€™m tellinâ€™ yâ€™all, if youâ€™re ever passing through Moriarty, New Mexico make a special stop at Lisaâ€™s. Itâ€™s extremely reasonably priced, with generous portions. Great value and Yum Yum Yum.
And so we roll.
