Looking for opinions on who has the best red chile in Burque?

After devouring a plate of huevos rancheros this morning at Loyola's on Central, I was wondering what the good people of DCF had to say when it comes to the topic of red chile. I have noticed so many levels or styles of red chile right here in our fine city that its hard for me to say personally what is the best. I have had extremely hot, very silky and mild and everywhere in between. I enjoy the red chile at Sophia's Place, Loyola's, Marlene's, had some eye watering hot chile at the Red Ball Cafe, and the Burrito Lady has some mean red as well. I have had some great red around the state, but since this is all about the Duke City, I want to keep the topic to just here in the city. It would be great to hear what you all have to say and your suggestions on your favorites!

Mary & Titos. Duran Central Pharmacy. In which order? Depends who you talk to. Let the o-pinions beginions....

Sadie's red is very good but I usually have it as part of carne adovada, so that might be cheating.

I second Mary & Titos. Unless my mom is cooking. Then mom's.

Loyola's red and Cervantes' green. Mmmmm. Time for a chile fix.

Is there any relationship between Mary & Tito's and the Tio Tito's that used to be near Menual and University?

I'll probably get laughed out of the chile club for saying this, but there's something very compelling about the red used at the frontier for their carne adovada. Haven't tried it on its own, though.

Duran's Central Pharmacy!!!!! Yum! Lot's of garlic in their chile. Hey Ron da Bomb - maybe our mom's could have a red chile cook off for the the best red in town!

There would be no losers in a cook off like that, Adelita! Yum. My dad makes the best sopapillas, too. I'll get a pot of frijoles and some quelites going, and we'll make a day of it! There is a Duran's restaurant across the street from my office (Menaul & Washington). I think they are owned by the Duran's Pharmacy Durans. I've never eaten at the Pharmacy, but the food at Duran's on Menaul is good. I almost always have the red chile in some variety...

Duran's Central Pharmacy and Las Mañanitas have awesome red chile.

Also, VERY highly underrated is Monica's El Portal in on the other side of Rio Grande from Old Town.
