Executive Chef Myles Lucero invites you to dine with us.  His menus feature sustainable, fairly traded, humanely raised, non-GMO, organic and locally sourced ingredients, including the bounty of the Pueblo of Santa Ana.  Chef Myles and his team put as much care into obtaining wholesome ingredients as they do in preparing them.

The dining rooms and patio present incredible and dramatic views of the Sandia Mountains or the casual and cozy ambiance of the historic adobe New Mexican Mission style architecture. Since 1986, our guests have enjoyed the Prairie Star difference. We pride ourselves on tailoring each visit to fulfill our guest's needs and desires. Whether it is a casual dinner, an anniversary dinner for two, or dinner with your closest friends, we delight in assisting in the selection of the right wines and creating the magical ambience for each occasion.
