Hi Ruth,

I'm not sure if you still post on here, but I'm in NM, too. I'm outside of Albuquerque and love it here. I'm going to have to give Paissano's. Thanks for the tips!

I live in Las Cruces, NM, and we have a lot of the chain restaurants that offer GF menus, incl. Outback and Chili's. PF Changs is about 45 min away in El paso, TX, although there have been rumors of one opening here in the next couple of years. Here in town, there are several indian/mediterranian restaurants that have GF offerings--my two favorites are International delights on El Paseo Dr., and Taste of India on University Ave. Because this is the southwest, most people want to eat at a Mexican Restaurant, but be careful--many Mexican Restaurants put flour in their refried beans to thicken them. My sister here in Las Cruces really likes going to Chachi's, and has had good luck there. Avoid Si Senor's like the plague--they lie about ingredients. One of the great tourist restaurants here is La Posta, whose building used to be a station on the pony express. Unfortunately, there is NOTHING on the menu that you can get GF, as they fry everything in the same vat, and there is flour in their's well worth going to look at the building, though. emoticon

Here in NM, my absolute favorite restaurant is an ITALIAN restaurant in Albuquerque. Almost everything on their menu can be gotten gluten free with a few notable exceptions--sorry, no ravioli and no minestrone. It's name is Paisano's and it is on Eubank. Here is their website:
The last time I went there, I got a very pleasant surprise--they now offer GF Garlic Bread! The nice thing is that they also have GF desserts, and the triple chocolate mousse is to die for. Unfortunately, I always over eat when I go there, as it is such a treat! I don't know about many of the other restaurants in ABQ, as we only go there seldomly.
