Gene, yes the Bobcat Bite is on the Old Las Vegas Highway (Historic Rt. 66). They are only open Wed. - Sat. for lunch and dinner. Nobody eats there because you can't get in! The burgers are darn good. There was a big blue tarp on the roof yesterday and it looks like they are doing some construction work.

Ok since everyone has pitched in and convinced us not to skip out on New Mexico, can anyone recommend some campgrounds with electric, water, and pet friendly.
As of now we plan to visit Carlsbad Caverns, White Sands, and Gila Hot Springs before heading North towards Durango.

We will stop and squeeze in some recommended eats along the way North

Ok, since you asked...
Oliver Lee State Park in Alamogordo, NM (White Sands)

There is an RV Park in White City (Carlsbad Caverns) which is good if you want to tour the Caverns and watch the bats leave at dusk and return at dawn.

Only RV parks have hook-ups in Silver City and I prefer roughing it in the Gila wilderness, so you're on your own there.

You should hit Mesa Verde on your way to Durango, they have a campground with hookups or there are a couple of RV parks at the entrance.

In Durango, United CG and Westerly are on the the north end of town or there is Alpen Rose if you don't mind the big rigs.

Near Alamagordo, also see:

* White Sands Air Force Base missile display (free), just inside the main gate. White Sands Missile Range - Visiting the White Sands Missile Range
Note: If you like missile displays and are near Tucson, also checkout the Titan Missile Museum where you get to tour an old missile silo.

* Missile Museum & Imax in Alamagordo foothills. New Mexico Museum of Space History » Alamogordo, New Mexico » Celebrating the significant role the state of New Mexico has played in the development of the U.S. Space Program

* Miniature train rides in Alamagordo City Park. Toy Train Museum and Train Ride Alamogordo

* If you end up heading towards Tucson on I-10, near Demming is a hidden gem of a campground, Rockhound State Park. It's fun hunting for geodes, but they are hard to find. It's easier to find reasonably priced samples at the rock shop just outside of the park. Look for the little shack with piles of rocks and lots of solar panels along side the road a couple miles before getting to the park entrance.

* Valley of Fires Recreation Area (near Corrizozo, north of Alamagordo on US 380). Great campground with water, electric and showers; but it may be hot this time of year.

* Mesilla, NM (suburb of south Las Cruces). This little Mexican village has interesting shops, a town square with old Spanish mission church and great Mexican food at reasonable prices. Most people don't know about this little hidden gem.
