    The most interesting thing I saw in town was the memorial for Governor William C. McDonald, the first governor of New Mexico (1912-1917). The memorial was in a nice little park, right on US Highway 54. In addition to the monument, there were picnic tables and a small playground for the kids.

    Carrizozo is the county seat of Lincoln County, famous for two of its residents Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett. The courthouse, however, is recent and modern, and not that interesting.

    The Outpost is about a mile south of the intersection of Routes 380 and 54
    The green chili cheeseburger and fries are the best. The also serve Steaks anc
    chicken fried steak. If you are seeking ambiance this place probably isn't for you;
    yet if you want some great food; with an "old west" atmosphere this is a "must stop"

    The service was excellent. Lunch for two ran $17

    They have a tv which ran country western music video's and have a fireplace
    which is welcome on the rare snowy day.

    As Mikey would say "try it; you'll like it"

    Favorite Dish: Green Chili Cheesburger
    It melts in yoour mouth and is cooked to perfection!
