The idea behind Tia B’s is pretty straight forward: to offer our own version of foods reminiscent of Northern New Mexican cooking as it existed decades ago, before restaurants started making their chile so mild you hardly knew you were eating it and before tamales, carne adovada, posole, and red chile were commodities that restaurant owners purchased pre-made, in a box or can.

We make nearly all of our food right here, from scratch, fresh daily using locally grown beans, potatoes, chile, and blue corn.

We take our coffee seriously. Our coffee beans are roasted to order by Red Rock Roasters and we grind the beans just before brewing the coffee or pulling the espresso shots. If you have not tried our brewed coffee or espresso drinks, please do so.

Your dietary preferences and restrictions are important to us. If you are a vegetarian, a vegan,  or gluten intolerant please let us know. We can suggest options and often customize meals to suit your requirements. Don’t hesitate. We like doing this.

Some of you may notice that some of our food “tastes like it needs more salt”. This is intentional and comes from the simple observations that you can always add more salt but once in, you can’t take it out. So, if it tastes like it needs more sale, add salt. If you prefer to consume less sodium, well there you have it.

We appreciate your business and hope the see you often.
