Red white and blue (blueberry and strawberry) pancakes for breakfast to celebrate Independence Day. Today and Friday! We'll be closed tomorrow. We were told by two restaurant owners who came to have breakfast that we have the best pancakes in town. And customers from Texas told us they were the best they ever had. It's another family recipe made from scratch. Happy 4th of July!

One of our regular customers who comes in for a burger because he's said they're the best old time burgers in town, and now lately has started ordering the 50's special with cheese and fries (as seen in the photo) told us about the new Colorado law. The law we knew nothing about. He said the new law states "if you eat a burger as good as this, you have to tell everybody"

We love the new law...

After writing the last post, I want to thank everyone for referring us, for sharing our posts, for supporting us with such enthusiasm. We're so happy to serve you and make your visit here a happy and delicious experience. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts... and have a safe Memorial Weekend. Don't drink and drive...stay safe on the roads and watch out for all those bikers on the road! Have a good time, making happy memories. Again, thank you all!

05/25/2019

yesterday, we got a table of 11 bikers It was bittersweet as I thought of the old restaurant, Emma's Hacienda, in San Luis. Where we all worked, because it was one of the busiest weekends of the year, with all the bikers coming thru on their way to Red River Bike Run. The restaurant was always packed, as well as the bar, with bikers making their way thru town. Anthony asked the customers where they were from. They were from out of state but were told we were the best restaurant in town, and it's why they stopped. It made me smile, as I reminisced of memorial weekends, working at Emma's Hacienda, when my grandma was around, and mom and everyone helped out. Memories!

Happy birthday to our grandma Emma.

This morning I woke up, and saw the date and immediately realized it was her birthday. Then I began to think of who she really was. To us all, she was the head of the family. And to the world, she was Emma... from Emma's Hacienda. I think of how, over 70 years ago, she opened a small restaurant and started serving red chile and hamburgers at El Patio Inn, then it turned into all the delicious recipes that became famous at Emma's Hacienda.

I was thinking, she was a brave woman. Most women stayed home and took care of the kids and house. But she didn't. She ran a successful business she was proud of. And I guess, learning from her and all the other entrepreneurs in our family, it sort of runs in our blood.

I'm thankful for all that I learned from her. And proud that we can serve the delicious foods she taught us. Happy Birthday Gram... we love and miss you!!!!

My grandma would be so proud of me. These sopapillas are delicious and the dough is so soft. She would walk into the kitchen and always take a sopapilla. Pull it apart and take a bite to check the texture. And if I wasn't right. I'd hear about it. So I always think of her when I eat one because I too, have to make sure it's what she would approve of. We never measure with cups or spoons. It's always by the handful or half a handful. And then the feel of the dough has to be just right. Practice definitely makes perfect. And as we've been told our sopapillas are the best!!! Thanks to what my grandma and mom taught me.
