In the middle of No-wheres-ville, NM in the middle of the desert on a seemingly deserted road stands the Adobe Deli—with a full parking lot, by the way. A mini “House on the Rock” (https://www.thehouseontherock.com/exhibits/)with a menu suitable to “The Unique”, this place is another stand-out for local color. Movie stars the likes of Sylvester Stallone and Johnny Depp during movie shoots have spent an evening shooting the breeze with locals while sitting on a battered leather couch in a room chock full of antiques from floor to ceiling. Its evolution from a school to a post office to its current Adobe Deli is thanks to a Norwegian entrepreneur who saw a vision of what it could be.
