Alfredos means alot to me so I saved it for my 101st post. Alfredos is a restaurant that has been in Alamogordo for over 38 years. I remember going and getting their mexi-burgers for 75 cents. Alfredos-home of the famous mexi-burger. Mexi-burgers- like a fried meat pie. Yum!
The old adobe building was a tamale factory in the 1940's. It is also home of my first job at 16. I have many fond memories of this place. It is another sign of the times, and sadly closed a couple of months ago. Not many small businesses can make it five years let alone thirty eight.

Who knows what is in store for the old building, demolition, at some point I expect. But it will always be in my heart. I learned to make guacamole, enchiladas, sopapillas and much more here. I know I am not the only one who will miss Alfredos.


  1. Sad. I didn't know it had closed.

  2. You know how sad I was (and still am) that Alfredo's closed, but I think Chris and Summer have come close to recreating my favorite salsa based on Freddy's recipe. Even still....sniffle - Elizabeth
