Adobe Deli–Deming, NM

We’ve been to Dream Catcher RV Park in Deming many times and have eaten in many of the restaurants in town.  We’ve heard about Adobe Deli a couple of times but never ventured the nine miles out of town to try it out…BIG MISTAKE. Wallace and Wanda Lewis talked to us and the Pinners about their food so we all went out there to eat last Tuesday.


This is a quirky and very unique restaurant housed in a former elementary school….and as said, is nine miles out of town in the middle of nothing….nothing.

Then inside the sights are just as eclectic.  The walls are covered with stuffed animals, even an alligator. Off to the side is a oxygen bar perched up high reached by a ladder.

The library remains as it was. Molly found a 1956 set of World Book Encyclopedia. She also found a set of postal boxes.

Looking through some the books is a trip back to the 50s and 60s
Extra stuffed animals are everywhere including this two-headed calf in the library

When the food arrived we certainly weren’t disappointed in the presentation.

The French onion soup was divine
The Osso Bucco was tender, juicy yet crispy on the outside-wonderful
The Lewis’s ribs were presented on a large skewer
And look at those perfectly piled steak fries.

Dinner was wonderful.  Probably one of the best meals I’ve ever had!!! If you are in Deming please do yourself a favor and go to Adobe Deli for a meal.  It’s a wonderful experience.

It was so nice to be able to visit with The Pinners and The Lewises, even if for only a day.  We will see them again in March at the Escapees RV Club annual Escapade in Tucson.

Remember, you are loved.
