Sugar's in New Mexico was the highlight of my four-day driving trip to Santa Fe from Denver. It totally caught me by surprise! Our group of five, in two cars, stopped for lunch at this unlikely looking BBQ trailer across from the Rio Grande in late October. We had no expectations other than hoping for full stomachs.
We ordered, then began exploring the semi-abandoned lot, looking for a bathroom and a place to sit. We found a magnificent old apple orchard loaded with fresh crispy fruit. We were given laughing permission to take all the fruit we wanted (organic and complete with worms). We then dined, under a heavily laden apple tree, on the best BBQ I've ever had the pleasure to sink my teeth into. Mind you, I have never enjoyed BBQ that came out of a foam take-out box, prior to this exquisite experience.
