According to a USA Today "reader's choice" survey it does...

A recent USA Today poll ranked the top 10 places in New Mexico to get the best green chili and El Patron Cafe, (1103 S. Solano), took the number 1 spot.  According to the poll's website:

The Hatch green chile coming out of the kitchen at El Patron Cafe in Las Cruces is certainly spicy, but not overpowering. The brisket nachos are a house specialty, smothered in green. Diners also find green chile in the house made posole, atop chicken enchiladas and even for dessert in the form of a green chile pineapple upside-down cake.

I don't know about that dessert but, everything else sounds awesome!  A couple of other local spots ... Chope's in La Mesa and Sparky's Burgers & BBQ in Hatch ... also made the list.  You can read the complete top 10 list here.

Where do think the best green chili dish in the Borderland comes from?
