Food was great as always, and service especially outstanding! Dana's smile and positive attitude could change the world! I am grateful she shared it with me

The food is always good and the wait staff is nice. The manager, Larry, is always welcoming.

Gary frankhouse

Excellent food, great service and reasonably priced.

brian jacobson

Food is good but honestly it is time to spend some money and remodel it is looking very old.

Linda Taylor

We frequently eat at Papa Felipe's and have always enjoyed the food and service. This evening, 2/16/19, we had a new server named James and he was great. We seldom have poor service at Papa's, but James went the extra mile to make sure our food was fixed the way we liked and our beverages were always topped off. We told Larry how much we liked James and he suggested we post our review online, so here it is! Way to go, James!!!

Will Stubbs

Vonnie Becenti

I have been looking for a fantastic Mexican food restaurant, and have been unsuccessful finding a great one. Have tried all the local toped-recommend Mexican eatery, and have always wanted wanting more authentic flavor, and here THE Mexican food place to go was less than 100 feet away, I live in the apartment complexes next door!. I told my son, that Mexican restaurant is always busy, never have an empty parking lot, let's try it. ... The food was excellent, the place was bright and clean, clean looking. The salsa with chips was great, I usually try a couple dips at other places, and end up rejecting the salsa, but Papa's, it was delicious. Next the drink, was served with ice, and the Coke flavor was not watered down. And I ordered the enchilada with taco, and it was absolutely delicious, served hot, enchilada sauce was authentic and medium hot, exactly the way I like it, and the Spanish rice...omg. , and soft hot sopa with honey. This place has it going on!!!!

Samantha Burks

My Favorite Mexican Restaurant. Love It there so sopa. their chips and salsa is awesome

Warren Crawley

Ordered a very dry breakfast burrito and was very dull in taste

Jason Vaillancourt

Food was good, but it took over an hour. Poor Papa Felipe's is having some real customer service issues these days.

Doug Lockhart

Great food and wonderful service. The green sauce is the best I've ever had, so don't miss out on that. I love chili rellanos and theirs did not disappoint. 1st class all the way...

Debbie Martinez

Delivery should not take priority over dine ins. Hour wait to get food that was already ordered is Redicious

Amy Renèe

Been going there since I was a child! Love Papa's!!!

Ethan S.

The service here was awesome! Vegans be warned- I have it on good authority that most of their salsas contain meat or animal products, guacamole included. The "street taco" salsas should be fine. My meal option was pretty much limited to the whole bean burrito and a side salad, which were pretty good, though simple. I still have to give the place five stars due to how honest and helpful the staff and management were in finding me something vegan.

Patricia Goettsche

While Papa's is good, there's nothing really EXTRA ordinary about their food. I think the central location it's in has a lot to do with what draws a crowd. I had a chicken taco salad, and while it was good, the overwhelming amount of chicken on top was a shock, as it overpowered the rest of the salad, which was hard to get to. (However, they make very good flat enchiladas!)

Debbie Enriquez

Had an awesome waitress. Food was amazing!

Alec Wallentinsen

One of the best authentic New Mexican cusine restaurants in NM. Delicious food, always served hot, and friendly attentive servers and staff. A great family owned place : )

John Guenther

Papa Felipe's is one of my go to restaurants for whenever my family comes to town. The food is consistently good with decent prices. The staff is friendly and energetic (looking at you Mitchell and Daina).

James Towne

Good food and great service at a good price!

Spain Hotovec

There's this bomb waitress that works there named Jamie! She has been lovely everytime I've come in a really says how great this places is! She's the perfect example of above and beyond when it comes to customer service and friendliness! Thanks Jamie!

Ginger Howard

Papa Felipe's has been featured on TV as one if the best Mexican restaurants. Eating there let's you understand why. The food is great as also is the serving staff.

Greggory Lanier

Absolutely the best I've had. They need 10 stars.

Chelsea Hinojosa

Food is good but extremely over priced! Wow!! Waiter couldn't get orders right. Why on earth you serve straws that arent sanitized? The lady just handed us unwrapped straws she had in her hands and expects us to put our mouth on it? No thanks.

Darrell Sharp

Food was excellent. Management and staff members took care of everyone. Great experience. We're from out of town and took a chance. Wise choice.

Joseph Siegfried

I used to really enjoy this place but it seems as though their portion size has gone down. It doesn't surprise me with Rising costs but still have a very nice service and their food still taste very good.

Stephanie Jarvis

You can always rely on this place to be consistently great! Tamale Pie is one of my favorites and it's always on point! They are friendly and never mind a party of 1 or a party of 30 always willing to accommodate! Great little bar as well! Good sopas and the chips and salsa are very good!! Been going here my whole life! Plan to continue!

Patrick Pinson

Never fails to satisfy good food, good service. Authentic New Mexican food one of the best in the state. Great for locals. A must for an out of town trip.

Dawnie dawn

The happy hour is great, free salsa and bean dip(which has chorizo, green chili and cheese!) great food and great staff!! My new happy hour joint, daily 3-6

Cheney Perry-Hill

YUCK! I was just there tonight and it was awful! It took about an hour for our food to come. (We don’t blame our waitress Demetria, she was great.) I ordered the stuffed sopapillas and a guacamole salad. It was so so SALTY. There really wasn’t 1 entire sopapilla on my plate. They cut a sopapilla in half and laid it on top of a very small amount of carne adovada. The rest of my plate was really salty refried beans. The guacamole salad was $10! It was the ONLY thing I enjoyed so when we decided to leave and not try to eat our food I ask for a to go box for it. When I started to put it in the box I realized it was actually just about 3-4 tablespoons of guacamole spread on top of a huge heap of lettuce. We spent $46 dollars, did not eat, then went to Rudy’s. On a different note. We really enjoyed our waitress Demetria. She was so attentive and caring. Her service was quick and accurate. If she were working at a different restaurant I’d love to be sat in her section!


Very rude and condescending when they had to fix an incorrect order. Food is not very flavorful and the sopapillas were salty and disgusting. Not to mention overpriced.

Corey Stillwell

Papa Felipe's is an amazing New Mexican restaurant. The staff is friendly, welcoming, and funny! The prices are amazing and the portions are large and filling! I highly recommend this restaurant to locals and visitors alike!

Joseph Baca

John our bartender made a great margarita and was very knowledgeable and was able to direct us to the snackd we needed. Please press like if this review is helpful.


I'm sorry, but the food was just awful. Service was good!

Carly Kirkpatrick

Love this place! This is our favorite New Mexican restaurant.

Johanna Bair

It was okay. The sopapillas were really salty.

Francine Smart

What a gigantic disappointment. Came to Papa Felipe's for my Birthday dinner only to have to wait almost an hour for my food to be wrong. My mom's meal was wrong too, and she was asked if she just wanted to eat the wrong order, or wait again. I was shocked, we love Papa Felipes and our waitress was rude and unhelpful. She had given us a discount because of the food being wrong, then when i told her i had a coupon for a free birthday entre, she revised the bill by a little over a dollar. This is unbelievable, and even though we love Papas, we will probably never come back out of fear of having Amy as our server again..goodbye Papa Felipe's. Thank you for your response. When you say "Sorry" with no ownership, it is generally pretty insincere. It's also troubling that someone in ownership, or management, would offer the explanation that the reason for the poor experience was because of how busy they are. The intention of our server was to be rude and demaning when she asked for my bitten into enchilada back, and then put it on a plate to throw it away. Again, you have to question the competency of leadership. Enjoy your success!

David McClintic

This place is a standard American Mexican restaurant. The chips were standard. Salsa wasnt anything special. Service from the bartender was great. Food speed was good. Not a hole in the wall but it was clear that the locals love this place. Bartender was kind. I won't go again.

Darryl Mail

good new mexican food,, not tourist food ! good friendly staff, good prices

Victor Aragon

Food is decent but the hostess (didn't catch her name thin girl with glasses) was awesome. Every time I go there she is so pleasant and always gets my order right. I probably would've given 3 stars if not for her. Definitely a great experience.

Peggy P

LOVE IT. Enjoying for over 30 years. Relaxing, great food. My favorite restaurant.

Scott Swann

Always my first stop after flying in from Alabama. The Pasole, sopapillas and green chili chicken chowder is worth the 1,300 miles. The service is outstanding and the food is always hot with very little wait time. I love everything about this place!

Susan Sheffield

Excellent food and service!! I would go again in a heartbeat! They are so welcoming and attentive; Agreed, Jamie is a great waitress!! Thanks Papa Felipe's

Garrett Storey

This restaurant is beautiful, authentic, and consistent. It has become a family tradition to visit Papa Felipe's. I'm always immersed in the beautiful decorations that are genuinely Mexican. My go-to is the 9 inch quesadilla with chicken and bacon- always delicious. The people there are extremely kind. Whether you are visiting Albuquerque or trying to find a new favorite, the heart of Mexican culture in great food lies here.

Steve Patrick

Best Mexican food in ABQ and best waitress we ever had in our lives with Luticia. Unreal service.

Joseph Wiltgen Wiltgen

One of my favorite places to eat in Albuquerque. #16 with an egg on top.

Cindy Robens

Good food with the exception of the salsa. It tasted like taco sauce.

Mary Jo

I love this place. Been our favorite spot for the past 5.5 years. Excellent service we alwaysset at the bar, got to know John.

speculatorius1 .

Lunch was very good! The chili was hot and flavorful. The portion was just right, and I couldn't complain about the price!

Jessica Lewis

Delicious. Love the complimentary chips and salsa. I had a delicious tamale plate and my husband ate the chilaquiles with an egg. Our server was attentive and friendly. Recommend!

Roy Cuoco

Terrific food. Great staff. We love it here

Tina Marquez

The salsa is so yummy...the food awesome..

Joseph Martinez

I had the tacos carnitas (3 tacos) and added the traditional rice and refried beans as the sides. The taco shells were toasted on the grill and stuffed full of tasty grilled carnitas. I was very satisfied with the portion size and my plate was super tasty. I was very happy with my choice, it was a special listed in the front waiting area. I would recommend it. We were also served promptly and check on regularly.

Amanda Lucero

Great food, Dana and Rico are the best, up beat and very professional. Always nice to go out and be able to enjoy the food, the drinks, atmosphere and service.

M Rolling

My family and I stopped here when we were visiting Albuquerque. All of us ordered something different and every single one of us were very pleased with our orders. Our waitress was great and made sure we were well taken care of. Coming from a land of Tex Mex dishes, we were thrilled to eat authentic foods.

Barbara Spencer

As a family of 10 we enjoyed fresh homemade tasting food, and very delicious. We will be back! The waitress and waiters were attentive to our needs This restaurant was recognized on the "Food Channel" as one of the best in Albuquerque, NM and they are right . Try it out! Come to Phoenix!

gino garcia

I seen this this restaurant on the Cheap Eats television show. I decided to come and check it out while visiting from Florida. 100% all that it was hyped up to be. Phenomenal food and even better, the customer service all around was top notch!

elizabeth ann

Great service, Laticia is the best server they have there! I enjoy the food and the atmosphere everytime I go. Fajitas are quite the wait though. Been going there since I read pregnant with my son and now he's 7 months and we still go there every month.

Loretta Martinez

I ate lunch and dinner there on the the same day! Lunch was fantastic! The red & green chile was everything our waiter James Don said it would be. Later that evening a friend & I were looking for a place for dinner, and Papa Felipes was my first thought. Our waitress Katie was awesome, great personality and excellent service. James was also great, genuine human being. The girls and I made conversation with him, and he took the time to engage., it was awesome! Papa Felipes will definitely be on my go to list when I come home to visit!

Mary Dewey

Like this place ... the food is good, decor is pleasant, and service is usually efficient. I especially like their tamales but have never been displeased with any of my meals.

Carolyn Bradford

Our server was excellent and that is the reason I keep going back. The food was enjoyable but the staff earned the stars.

Mary MacInnis

Very good food, great service!

doug apperson

The food is high quality, the taste is excellent; especially the red chili, it couldn't possibly be any better and the plate presentation is a work of art. Finally the people are genuinely nice and professional. Thanks.

Brenda Bowman

Always a wonderful meal. Service today was fablous and the red chili was wonderful.

Ray Antasek - NM6R

Very good food and very good portions.

Monique Garriss

Such a wonderful restaurant. They are always kind and the food is my fav. Going to miss them now that I moved to TX. Navajo taco is so good. Green chili can be hot so I usually request it on the side

Dorinda Sickenger

The food was excellent. Called in my order. Had to wait too long. (Printer for cc wasn't working), and then they grey the order wrong so had to wait longer to fix it. Got home and we were missing 2 extra sopaipillas I paid for.

Toby Roybal

Always perfect. Been going there for years. Thanks Pappas.

dj parker

Perfect. Demetria (server). Food. Green carne adovada and 1 Wednesday taco :) Environment and staff. Exactly what I was looking for. Reccomended by 3 different people .

John Marrs

Pretty good. Good service. Manager was very friendly and did a good job of checking that everything was going smoothly. I thought the queso was a standout. My wife really enjoyed her flautas.

Amber Cummings

Went on a Sunday eve and the place was packed! Waited a long time for our food but it was soooooo worth it! Food was delicious. I had the Tapatias & my husband the Macho Enchiladas. Only reason for 4 stars was due to the hostesses attitude to a customer. She was very rude to an elderly lady when she was only trying to ask a question. But go eat here! You'll like it ☆

Valle Gregory

Very good place Don't know we habit been here before

Lessa Touch

Fast service and friendly! My drink is always full and my chips and salsa was never empty. Great service over here! Atmosphere is calm and family oriented. Price is decent and food was plenty. Food was good it wasn't bland. Parking when i was there i found one quick. Good place i recommend going here. I will come back to eat again, great experience!

Ray H

I have been going to this restaurant for a long time. Everyone is always friendly and the servers are always extremely positive. The food is delicious and they have very good chili! They have a rewards program and which often rewards buy one get on 50% on entrees. This place has been voted “Best of the City” many times, and it’s easy to find out why! Everything from curtesy to quality and all in between is at this place. The prices are reasonable when considering the size of the plates. I personally always get a combination plate which leaves me with plenty leftover. I will be returning very soon, and it won’t be anything even close to the last time!

Lance Bellefontaine

I did not enjoy the food and the service was subpar

Gigi Armijo

Food was great... Service was not. Manager was awesome. Didn't except or want what he did for us but was greatly appreciated. Thank you

Sasha Degroot

I love this place. Always good food and great service

Debi Tajalle

Good food..fake plants and vigas,lighting very dusty

Carla Romero

Food was good. Service could have been better.

John Bradford

The food and service are great!

Steve Casey

Great green chile sauce. Very good service. Avoid the potatoes. The place needs to be aired out. Something smells dank in there.

Meredith Ford

Great food and wonderful wait staff! Don't leave Albuquerque without eating here!

Maria Brandon

The food was excellent. Service was great..

Larry Kirkman

Fave NM food! Owner operated local cuisine

Dan Philpot

We stopped in on an extremely busy Friday evening with a group of 8 without a reservation and the staff went above and beyond to make sure we were seated in a timely manner. Once seated, our waitress, Demetria, was so accommodating. She had a great personality, very professional and efficient, she made sure we were happy with the food quality and checked on us regularly. It was truly a pleasurable experience, the staff is awesome and food quality and prices are excellent. I recommend Papa Felipe's to anyone that has a true appreciation for quality authentic Mexican food! Thanks for the experience.

Carlos Paniagua II

Great customer service and really good food!

Anime Angie

Wonderful experience. Was seated right away for 3 people and the server was very attentive and quick. The atmosphere is such a wonderful depiction of historic New Mexico. The only reason I’m not giving it full stars is because almost all of their food, except two dishes one of which is a burger, has MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) in it which gives me horrible migraines. Other than that I would very much recommend this restaurant to everyone I know!

Dan Homan

Delicious New Mexican cuisine. Superb Green Chile. Outstanding Red Chile. Very tasty salsa.

J Marie

I hadn't eaten here in years. Drove by and decided to check it out. The service was great. The food is ok. Not as good as I remembered it.


I was hoping for some really good food but it was only okay. I should have saved my money and just done burgers. The dinners were very generous portions but the flavor was only so so.

Desi Brown

Great fresh food. Guacamole is really good. Food came out fast

John Zagar

Fantastic staff. Great atmosphere. Papa's is the best.

James Bird

Really cool dining areas, good New Mexican food, and some of the best sopaipillas anywhere. Don't fear the chile!

Carl Christensen

Always good food. Wish the margaritas weren’t so huge and icky sweet though.

Randall Wahlert

More spicy than flavor, creamated taste buds Don't work, you can't taste anything

Blondie Sanders

Clean restuarant, nice wait staff, food was hot and delicious. I had the Navajo taco, also known to us as an Indian taco. I liked that the beans were drained so it didn't soak the bread, the people in Oklahoma tend to soak the best part...the crunch of the bread with a spoonful of wet, undrained beans. I tried the chicken, but for me, I feel the ground beef would have. even much better. My husband had the chili relleno and it was home made, battered and tasty! We will come back.

Gina Chavez

Great food, great service, fair prices. Will definitely be back.

Ryan Thomas Petropoulos

Oh my goodness. If you are coming to Albuquerque, hit this spot. This is one of the only ways you can truly cross New Mexican food off of your bucket list. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Brian Phillips

Our server, Lutucea, was warm and helpful. The food was awesome and I especially loved the stuffed soppes. The green chile sauce was great ... Never had anything like it before. We look up the best Mexican food in Albuquerque on Google and this place didn't disappoint.

Dainty Gyal

nice little spot i’d go back again

Richard Gunn

I love their food and tacos especially.

Marina Turner

BOMBBBBBB.I believe our servers name was John.He was so quick and friendly.Our in town relatives reccomended us to HIM and this restraint....10/10 will be returning during our next visit

Dale Candelaria

Food was awesome, service was impeccable. I actually found a phone in the parking lot. I asked for the manager so I could leave it with them. It took several minutes but the receptionist returned and basically blew me off. It appeared as though the manager was afraid of any confrontation, good or bad, or just didn't want to take the time to hear from a customer. So my congrats to the staff but boo hiss on the manager. They should make a commitment to hear a customer out, good or bad.

Jeannie Humphrey

If you are in Albuquerque you have to try this place. Great Mexican food and great service. I had the Tampico Tacos and it had to have been the best taco meat I have eaten and I eat a lot of tacos. Servings were a good size and they have a great kid's menu.

Gary Boxx

Great food grest service reasonably priced and they were able to accommodate a party of 15 with little notice.

Angelica Guler

Made a PB&J after. It wasn't the worst experience ever, and I am sure if you know what to order you can have a pleasant experience. We were in the Albuquerque gor the night and unanimously voted on Papa Felixs. Upon entering the decor is cite and the hostesses are wonderful (kind, knowledgeble, and welcoming). Our server was kind, but absent (we had to ask for refills on chips and drinks multiple times). The food had a wide variety of options, but overall fell flat. The vegetarian fajitas had cold chopped plain bell peppers and onions served on a hot skillet. The tortillas were not the yummy, warm, soft homemade tortillas you would expect at this price point. They were plasticky and frankly smelled off. The meat on the chimichanga was tough. Most of the food was left on the plates. Needless to say, after paying $70 for a family of 4, we were left less than impressed. We went back to the hotel and made peanut butter and jelly sandwhiches.

melissa salinas

Food was horrible!!! As a visitors to NM, should have good Mexican food. Not the case.

John Wilkes

Best low key casual neighborhood Mex restaurant in ABQ

Julie G

Festive atmosphere. Our service was good. Food was also very good. We had visiting family not used to chili so got it on the side.

Anne Mitchell

Friendly staff great food for years our fav

Larry Bell

Good service and good food.

Sam Lamb

Had to wait a long time for our drinks. The guests seated after us got there drinks way before we did. Not Kool.

Denise Neff

Wonderful the green Chile corn chowder was great

Dion Perkins

General Manager Larry and Staff are absolutely amazing...if you're ever in the Albuquerque NM area.. dont cheat yourself, go enjoy this AMAZING restaurant and leave 110% satisfied!!

Leah Youngquist

The food was pretty good! I had the cheese enchiladas with refried beans and rice, and was definitely pleased! My partner had the patron margarita and loved it, my strawberry margarita was on the sweet side. Overall, would recommend for an affordable bite to eat!

Joanna Dykes

Great food, friendly staff all around Great experience

BlessedCuts NM

Nastiest food i ever had cold took 1 hour to get are food not worth what i paid at all! Manager was a un professional lady as well .

Laura Jayne

Has always been a good spot for tasty Mexican food and friendly efficient staff.

Marie Moore

Family owned restaurant. Great service, friendly staff and the food was fabulous! The sopapillas with honey ... Oh my


My good friend and I randomly found this place and it had amazing food and service from Luticia. We sampled a few things she brought out and then made our decision. Will definitely recommend.

Tiffany Gallegos

I’ve been going to Papa Felipe’s forever! Tonight I had exceptional service from their bus boy Nate. He was truly genuine, courteous, prompt and a hard worker. Thanks for being awesome.

Whitney Mignon

We had a party of 20 (including the kids they shared with the adults) so it took an hour to get food. My food was very salty, even the sopapillas. I ordered a side of potatoes but couldn't eat them so I traded them for some French fries that were so greasy I couldn't finish them. I'll give it another try one day. I'll just know what not to order now.

Miguel Jaime

On the suggestion of a friend, we went here for dinner. It was absolutely a fantastic meal! The service was great, and our server was very helpful when it came to dealing with food allergies. The food was made perfectly. I really look forward to going back here for another meal!

realist 100

Chips were hard a a rock. Food was overly salty. My plate in particular was some of the nastiest tasting tacos I've eaten. Over priced for the quality of food

Carol Baca

Food was excellent. Waitress ammee gave 5 star services

Rick Abraham

I liked this place since i worked there as a kid. They used to be at Coronado mall back then.

Elyse VonNiederhausern

Amazing food and great atmosphere. This is one of mine and my husband's top spots for date night!

Robert Garman

Been going there for years and have never has a bad meal. This time was no different. Great meal with excellent service.

Ron Thompson

Best Sopapillas I've ever had

Gage Lawless

Delicious new mexican food. Awesome courteous workers. Try the roast beef burrito.

Juliann Owen

Great service and great food. Never disappointed.

Charles Potter

This is just bad food , after two bites I had had enough and when my wife looked at me and said this is disgusting I knew it wasn’t just me.she ordered chili Riano‘s And I ordered the chimichanga Mine was soggy and had a inch guacamole covering the entire chimichanga the meat was mixed with a puréed Been and tasted like a salt lick , her was not cooked and was soggy batter, tow make it even worse the place smelled like dirty socks

Rob Kirkbride

The chilaquile casserole with egg was excellent as was the service!

BJ Martinez

Our server Dana was absolutely wonderful the food was very delicious very nice atmosphere and even the manager came along to see if we were doing okay so I give these guys a five

Tamara Toliver

Excellent food, good portions, great service. All around awesome dining experience.

Carol Palmer

The enchiladas were superior! The atmosphere is ultra friendly and the ambiance is totally inviting. But it was our waiter who was absolutely one of the best I've had!! His name is James (I have permission to use his name) and this young man will be wonderfully successful and well remembered regardless where he is or what he's chosen to do in life! We shall return!!!

Nick Kantor

We came here for the first time with family that was visiting. Drove by it, saw it was busy, and decided that it must be good. We arrived and had a great time during happy hour. The food was delicious and the staff was amazingly generous with their knowledge of the menu and even gave a sample of the meat in different chili sauces for my family to try before we ordered. We had a baby with us and the high chair was clean and even had a tray for us to use. Amazing. So amazing that my family wanted to come back to eat the next day. So we did! Same experience. Great food, quick service. Thank you!

Cookie Cooke

Great margaritas & good convo. Red & green is tasty as well. Local fav.

DoeDoe Gom

Food an drinks were excellent. And a very relaxing place to eat. Staff were very attentive. Very clean too.

Christi Spear

This is one of my favorite places to eat. The food is always fantastic and they have a wide variety of options so everyone can find something they want. They have a lot of New Mexican food and they also have more genetic options if someone doesn't want Mexican.

Aniela Kowzan

Really enjoyed the atmosphere, the decor. Also felt like the owners truly respect and care about their customers and train their staff accordingly. Their corn chips were earthy, real, unlike anything I tasted before.. I couldn't get enough. The server was exceptionally competent and attentive and the food delicious. Will definitely go back !

George Bess

Papa Felipe's lived up to my expectation with flavorful Mexican Food and friendly service staff.

Karen Rivera

TexMex menu. Sopapillas and margaritas are worth a try.

Ivan Tuttle

LOVE THIS PLACE!!! THE BEST MEXICAN FOOD ANYWHERE!!! I've been coming here for over 25 years and never disappointed!!! You got to come here if you want the best!!! Prices are very reasonable and service is excellent!!!

Rebecca Wright

Food and staff are awesome!! This is my favorite New Mexican restaurant in ABQ!!

Laura Ulibarri

Great food. Thick tortilla chips with the chips and salsa, excellent carne adovada (pork marinated in red chile and vinegar), and piping hot sopapillas--we asked our server to bring for dessert. Outstanding service.

Stephanie Willbanks

Wonderful experience!! Our server, Dana, was phenomenal, super attentive, kind, and just seemed genuinely happy. The tamale plate was the bomb. Best rice and beans I have ever had, and of course the sopapillas were a wonderful addition. Can't wait to visit again!

Brenda Olson

Mediocre at best. No hustle on service. Food was warm and good, not great. Price is fair. But was very happy not to see John in the bar.

Adam Gonzalez

I think the restaurant has not changed itself since forever. I use to eat there very often, and at that time the food was great always. so I know what I am talking about. I decided to pay a visit with my family. I was extremely disappointed with the food and the restaurant. In my opinion " Opinion " it definitely needs a makeover. Say paint and fix the ceiling where it had or has a leak in the roof. The staffing 5 stars. Food 2.5 stars restaurant 2 stars. My opinion. Enjoy

Anane-Michael Hudson

Ok for take out. Kinda bland. Soupy chile?...Tasted like a chain type spot. Maybe for young kids. Or folk with no palette.

Brittany Robertson

Food was mediocre, floor was filthy, found a half smoked cigarette under our table but, our waitress was fantastic!

Faylene Wytewa-Alire

Great food and great service!

Betsy Schneider

The food there is great. Extremely fast service

J Endo

The food was good and service was great. The green chilli had great flavor. Chips and salsa very good. Jamie was our server and did a great job. She has a great personality and made our family get to gather great. Thank you.

Ramona Trujillo

It took an hour for us to get our food that was cold. When we asked to speak to a manager, she gave us the excuse that it took that long because it was during a busy time...Wow!!! Food was gross tasting and the service was not the best. First and last time I’ll go there. The chili does not taste like New Mexico chili, it taste like a sauce (gross). Potatoes were burnt and tasted nasty. If you want good New Mexico food, I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE! Not to mention it was way over priced.

lyra2112 .

Excellent New Mexican Food with hot chile! Best sopapilla I've had in a while, hot and fresh! Bonus: senior pricing strarts at 55! Locals eat here. Excellent service too!

Gwyn Mansfield

I haven't been here in a while but had a lovely meal last night. I want to give special credit to our server - Jamie. She was patient, kind to my mom and very attentive. She made our experience the best.
