- Mateo's green chili cheesesteak
We opt for the green chili cheesesteak ($9), which drops typical peppers and onions in favor of Pueblo-grown Vigil Farms chilies. It’s one of those sandwiches that sticks with you, gastronomically and mentally. The bread’s crusty outside and tender inside — we’re skeptical as he toasts the outside of the baguette rather than the inside, but we can’t dispute the results. Fiery hot peppers do beautiful things with tender meat and American cheese for a savory, satisfying tube of East-Coast-meets-Southwest, though a pinch more salt would not go amiss.
