Good Food, Good Vacation

Our vacation was winding down, but we still had a couple of stops to make.  Santa Fe is one of our favorite towns, so I was very happy that we were able to spend a night and part of a day there.  I was not a big fan of the southwest, but David has been for a long time.  Many moons ago, he took me to Santa Fe and I'm now sure that he was using it to hook me on the southwest. ;)  It worked.  Much like the ocean, if I don't get a desert fix every few years, something feels off.  So we had dinner at a place that we've been returning to since that first trip together to Santa Fe, then the next morning spent some time walking around downtown.
 I love the architecture, quirky art, and the weather...oh that lovely sun!
 Sadly, we had to leave Santa Fe and head on toward home.  As we approached Amarillo, I began looking at Trip Advisor for a place to eat.  The Coyote Bluff Cafe had almost a perfect score and sounded like something we would like.
 Not only were we not disappointed, but we were really impressed!  I have a feeling that we may have to make a stop every time we pass through Amarillo.
 I'd looked at the menu online and decided that I'd stick to my healthy eating plan and order a salad with grilled chicken.  See it above? ;)  Once we opened the door, saw the decor and smelled the burgers, I realized that I'd be missing out if I didn't have a burger.  David and I both thought they were excellent, and they had some of the best fries I think I've ever had.
It's hard to see in this picture, but as you walk in the front door there is an old clawfoot bathtub full of ice and beer.  To say this place has personality is an understatement.  If you're ever passing through Amarillo, it's worth a stop!
