REVIEWS OF Rock and Brews IN New Mexico

Laura Mae

Very nice variety of brews. Food is about average but the staff are awesome and I really enjoy the videos. Next time we will enjoy the patio...there are couches there people!!


Was there yesterday and had the worst experience with flys. They were dive bombing our food to the point we couldn't eat And had to take our food home just ended up tossing it out. We were told they have an open air policy but this was just disgusting they really need to get it under control . Can't imagine what the kitchen looks like. Manager took our entres off was apologetic but we still paid for our Appetizer and tea. Will not return

Christian Denny

Super popular place. It was packed on a Saturday night but no wait time. They have good food. Burgers I think the their hot item. I had fish and chips last time and it was good. Lots of TV's with sports on. They have a lot of alcohol choices. The staff was really polite and nice. The waiter was attentive but not to attentive.

Lara Ismael

It was mine and my husband first time being there. The environment, food, drinks and service was amazing. We will definitely go back there again soon. It is a great place loved it.

christina lopez

I had the hamburger with blue cheese. Food was good but, it took a very long time for food to come out. They werent busy, and seemed like a lot of employees were hanging out while paying customers were waiting long wait times for there food. There service and wait time isn't really worth the experience. I'd rather go somewhere they care about that. Next time I will.

Kekupa'a Pratt

The Smoke House burger was delicious, Karla was great and Adam was very entertaining! Great service, atmosphere, and music. I'll be coming back.

ProudNavyDad SWO

Service is excellent. Food was good. Atmosphere is pretty cool.

Daniel Cordoba

Food was great. Had the fried chicken and it was delicious.Love the music they played too

David Chavez

Had a good Classic American atmosphere. The couches outside on the patio are spacious and a great place to bring a group of friends.

Josh Rickards

My Friend turned me into this place. They make really good speciality drinks and the food quality was perfect. Since the portions were large, I had some of it the next day and it still tasted great. I would definitely come back to this place. They also have live music at night with all the classic cover songs. Keep on Rocking 'Rock and Brews'

Jonathan Barone

Burger was great and the place was very busy would have given it 5 stars but their were issues with appetizer came after our burgers and our waiter was MIA most of the time but other wait staff were always around helping their customers. All in all my first time in Rock and Brews could have been better.

Chris Bieber

Good food, decent prices, okay atmosphere. Would go again if somebody asked but otherwise.....meh.

Delfino Castillo

The food is good. Menu has a variety of different items, burgers, pizza, and more. The also have a great bar inside and outside with great local beers to try.

Cynthia Fellner

Great Happy Hour deals! Excellent service & delicious food! Will definitely go back!

Debra Aragon

I had the fish tacos and my friend had the fish and chips. They were the same fish. I liked the tacos, but the fish was a little on the spicy side for my friend. Food came out in a timely manner, and the waitress checked on us often. I didn't have a bad experience, but I will probably not go back for a while. They played mostly 80s music on the TVs above. So, if you like this type of music, you will like this place.

Melissa Tafoya

We sat in the patio that had couches which made it really convenient with a 2 year old in our party. The food was excellent. We had the fish tacos...yum!

Genesis Twitty

Good service but the wings were a disappointment because I love wings and they have to be satisfying every where I go for wings. Not the place for wings lol Anyway, good food and clean, variety of entertainment.

Crystal Gil

Not very impressed with this spot. The only thing good was the cheap prices for their food. Not something I would recommend.

anthony devontenno

It could be better. It could be worse. I enjoyed the outdoor seating.

Perci Chee

My experience at rock and Brew was great. Food was delicious and staff always nice and at your service. I highly recommend this place for dinner and drinks.

Espe Lucero

Ummm steak sauce id get on the side, potatoes salad not my style. Buffalo wings amazing....waitress was awesome.

Paul Wright

Like a Hard Rock Cafe, but cheaper and without the memorabilia. Cover band was good, beer and specials were cheap and pretty good, too.

Mike Kimball

The food and service used to be on point, but tonight they failed so hard. We changed wait staff 3 times because NOBODY knew who's table was ours and so i had to order my drinks twice. Then they lost my order, but it got comped. The manager did send over a bunch of free appetizers to apologize. I hope they go back to the good old days

Ilene Starr

Nothing to not like! Great food, service, Brews, fun environment, and music not so loud you can't think or talk. Ribs were outstanding. Can t wait to go back!

Laura Torres

The food was good and staff was very nice pleasent

Troy Willingham

Dog friendly. Awesome service and food. Thank you for making my short time with my brother and his service dog comfortable and pleasant

Robert Nelson

Great place, good music and atmosphere. Menu is deeply filled with something for everyone's appetite, Isabelle and Dom are great and the rest of the staff was friendly. Cool outside seating, couches , fire pits, live music , awesome tap selections

David and Jamie Pederson

Cute decorations. Food excellent. Very reasonable prices. Terrific lunch special. Soup and gumbo both tasty. Good service

Catherine Burnham

Great balcony with its own bar - this is a great improvement! I love the couches, but there are also bar tables and a picnic-style table. Good bands play here, good atmosphere. Just a plain fun place. Food is good and reasonably priced. There's also a place to sit away from the band if you want it a little quieter. Good for groups or couples.

Trish C

Loved that I could take my baby dog. One of the waiters brought her a bowl of water.

Nick Koss

Food took a very long time to arrive and the quality wasn't great. My child's burger was overcooked hardcore, and the fruits on the side looked old and dry. The mango mojito I had was weak. I've eaten better for less, faster. We won't be returning.

Susan Jackson

Great service. Came in for lunch and to kill time before next appointment. Felt relaxed and well taken care of.

Glen I

This place was really cool. They have some excellent ribs which I thought originally would be average but they were really great! I will definitely have some more!

Christopher Graham

This place is definitely different during the weekday for lunch versus anytime on the weekend. We went on a Saturday at 2pm and discovered the menu was completely different. When we asked the server about an appetizer and sandwich which is on the menu for lunch, we were told it was on a different menu so we couldn't order it. When the meal finally came the fries tasted like fish, the sweet potato fries were so salty, and the meat was so dry it was disgusting. The server never asked if we wanted a beverage other than the water we first got while we browsed the menu. Once the food was served the server didn't come back to ask how it was. To top things off, there were 3 managers in the place who never stopped by the tables to see how things are. This place might be really good while intoxicated, but as a sober customer it's better to go somewhere else. The only plus side to this place was the atmosphere of an 80s rock environment.

Robert Childs

This place is fun to have a happy hour after work or to sit down and have a good meal. I really like how they've pulled the rock theme into the spirit of the place. If your looking to kick back after work they've got a nice patio outside that's covered and has sofas which are comfy and great. But if you are looking for a more traditional lunch or dinner they've also got you covered with large booths for bigger parties or high top bar tables...and of course you can always sit at the bar and hang out. My go to order is the caprese and a tri tip sandwich or the ribs.

Apee Poo

Everything about the place is a 10/10 from the decor, to beer selection, to the food, doggy menu and the amount of wait time. Only reason why i rated 4 stars is because of my waiter. He was nice and friendly but he didnt check up on us enough. (He was to busy flirting or possibly talking with friends.) Which is not the case but at the end we had to wait 15 minutes for our checks because he wouldn't stop talking to a female at the bar. Once he came back with a detailed receipt I saw he charged me something I never recieved (for my dog). I tried to wait for him to explain but while knows where he went. I just proceeded to not leave a tip judge. Since what he wrongly charged me would've been the tip. I while be back I loved this place and the atmosphere. I will be sure to get a different waiter or waitress. At least someone who seems to care about what they're doing and being attentive.

Katherine Brock

Food was great; drink and drink selection were great. Server was helpful and pleasant. All around good times to be had here.

Shannon Corder

It’s an alright establishment for some greasy bar food. It’s nothing like a Hard a Rock cafe though. I didn’t see any quality rock memorabilia. You would think that with the owner being a member of KISS they could afford to put up some artwork that wasn’t all printed BS. But they serve big beers so that helps. It’s very loud inside. Just a place to go once a year or so.

Leticia Quezada

Loved this place! Excellent atmosphere, awesome band! The patio with bar is a must visit.


I enjoy Rock and Brew everytime I go. Their food is pretty good and the atmosphere is cool. They have bingo on some nights and also have a live band on other nights. I usually get seated right away however the service has taken long to get the food out on a couple occasions I have been. But the best part by far about Rock and Brew and the reason they get 5 stars is because the have a dog friendly patio! I love siting there even when I don't bring my dog because I enjoy watching other people bring their dogs I always get a good laugh. I hope they will always keep this awesome niche.

Jaylen Jefferson

Other than the fish bones in my fish I guess it was good the music was fun the place was packed and looking cool

David Jarosz

Great food! Live band! Friendly staff!

tina hernandez

Great place dog friendly they have a menu just for dogs and they are served there in bowls of water with ice Love this place

Paige Armstrong

Nice atmosphere, great coconut shrimp, good service!

Lisa Chavez

We went for the father's day car show, hopefully next year will be better

Judy Germany

Food was good.. Kithen took for ever to cook our food. But manger made it right.

Elizabeth Stewart

If you are looking for an authentic rock atmosphere....this isn't it. Very "food chain" kind of vibe. Overpriced and the staff are mostly rude.

Lupe Gomez

94 rock was there, surprise pie eating contest for my wife and music here is great. Steak tacos here are so good!!!

Rodzilla Torres

I always love going to this place. The food is great, they have live music on occasion or a dj. The environment is amazing and staff is wonderful. The main manager is Q. Anything you need just ask.

Jessica Mcpherson

Great CSRS great atmosphere

Ian Scott

Love coming here to eat and relax. Good food and we like the music videos.

deena murphy

Gerald Vigil

Good food! And great atmosphere!

Kathryn Zaelynn Ross

Rock and Roll art is Awesome

chris casias

As always, it's a great place to enjoy ypur favorite brews and/or food!! 4/06/19 I visited this property again to have a few drinks before attending a concert. The bartender was very awesome and welcoming! As usual, the atmosphere was great and my friend and I had a great time!

Lacey S.

I love Rock N Brews just for the fact that is where my first date with my boyfriend occurred. Plus, they play some really cool music. I love the decor and overall atmosphere, but they need to play LESS sports. It's not a sports bar. They have a good amount of happy hour specials that are nice because their menu is kinda pricey in my opinion because the food isn't that wonderful.

Mike Patron

Had a great. Service was excellent and the salmon rice bowls are the bomb. Will be back for them again. The beer could of been colder. But overall it was a 10 out of a 10.

Marc Rostro

Cool place. Good service. Food is...ok. I'm giving 5 stars for the "Soldiers Table" they have there. I've only ever seen that in a military chow hall.

Denise Smith

It is one of my favorite places. No matter how busy they always take care of us.

Rebel Joker

Great atmosphere! The food was great as well. The calimari isn't the best but still enjoyable! The service was amazing and consistent. I really have no complaints about this establishment

Derek Wheeler

Excellent food. BIG portions!


Excellent selection of on tap brews and the "Rock'n hot wings" are top notch.

Amateis Kicklighter

My husband and I love this place, I love the doggie menu too

Erin Berumen

The service was fantastic! We showed up at 11:20p and the server us without any grumpy servers or irritation. Loved it. Only 4 stars because the wings were ok. Not amazing but good.

Claretta Griego

I ordered a small pizza with a salad. The waiter was very efficient and polite. The food when he brought it, looked very appetizing. And I was not disappointed it was excellent. The service in this restaurant is very good. As is the food. I would go there again.


Awesome place to eat and Hangout with the Family

Maria Zamora

Terrible customer service. The manager was rude and condescending instead of trying to resolve the issue she kept antagonizing the situation. Would not recommend.

Cindi McWatters

Awful awful awful!!! They served us raw burgers and when we called and spoke to the manager she was extremely rude and stated she couldn’t help us! Such unprofessional service and how dare you serve us raw food. Are you trying to kill us???


A go-to for our family. Great food, great service, great music. 5 stars

Joe Montoya

We love this place...the food and drinks are wicked good......the management team here are all awesome......T and Q thank you for making us feel welcome when we here from Santa fe....I recommend this place to everybody.....Barbara's and I first date was here and 4 years later we are still here.....thank you guys we love you

Dillon Burns

Garbage, management really dropped the ball. The bartenders were running food orders to tables, so they fell super behind. Management was behind the bar, but just kinda stood around instead, and asked staff questions of helping out the bartenders. It took us twenty minutes to get our order taken at the bar in the first place. After that they were attentive for about thirty minutes then ignored us for another thirty when we didn't have any glasses in front of us. We never got to order food. We were there for over an hour without even asking for our food order, even though we had a menu out in front of us.

Tyler Moore

Omg, Happy Hour from 4-7, incredible Green Chile Cheese Fries (HUGE), and delicious “droplet” beignet desserts :D Try the watermelon sour if they have it ;) Good vibes, with very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable staff too :D Would recommend!!

Brian Wilson

I like it here they are nice and won't over serve you. They care about you

Steve Casey

Good food and brews. Huge selection of craft beer. Menu has something for everyone

Zaxary Thomas

Excellent food, the chicken however is very much chicken, try their more intricate dishes to take full advantage of what the kitchen could dish out. If you don't like a loud and somewhat crowded, I would try and go before their dinner rush. But even in the chaos of how many customers they get during rush, all employees kept their composure and professionalism. We even received a free desert as a result of the slight delay on our food. But they were constantly reminding us that they were aware of how long the food was taking which I really appreciate and haven't seen before (our food only took 30 minutes to come out after ordering so the wait wasn't even that bad)

Richard Acosta

Good food. Good beer. The best part is you can bring your dogs. They also have a doggie menu. Lol

Chris Luchini

Relatively good burgers, they're definitely not vegetarian.

Victor Robinson

Waiter was terrible to put it best. Order was messed up. Appetizer was free but not edible so falls under the is what it is. Terrible waiter ruined the whole experience.

Theodore Studerus

Big open restaurant with walls covered in pictures of classic rockstars and giant album covers. A lot of really great happy hour food options, I love the green chili cheese fries and pizzas. Best of all a huge beer selection, like 30 taps and a lot of bottles too.

A.j. Camacho

I went there recently for some Rockn brews. The brews are excellent and so is the atmosphere! I love rock music and this is the place for you, if you do too! I don't know why it took me 4yrs to come here. I will not be going anywhere else, if I want a casual place to meet for great food and meeting friends. The best bar in town, that has great quality food, not bar food, it's sooo good! Come and support a great place in Albuquerque!

Nick Aquilino

Not really my type of place but the food was good and the service was too. If your a hair band fan this place is for you

Javier C

Tri-tip sandwich, and ribs are pretty good. Check out the back of the menu they have brunch items as well. I really enjoy the classic rock that's played!

ABQ Review

Looking for a cool place to hangout while dining on some amazing food and enjoying a frosty beverage? Rock and Brews is the place to go. While you're there, you can enjoy an awesome environment, with great rock and roll music videos playing on the TV screens. The staff is awesome with great service, and like I said, the food and beverages are amazing. Easy to find. Located on Montgomery, just West of San Mateo. 4800 Montgomery Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87109

Daniel C

I liked everything there. My chicken breast in cream sauce was great. Wait staff was fun, chatty, and attentive. We had a great lunch with all of our favorite rock stars being played on the TV screens. Go, you'll like it.

Norma Erives

The sweet potato are amazing!! The service is EXCELLENT 100

jennifer evangeline archuleta

Excellent green chili burger, awesome crispy fries.

Rachel Keith-Smith

The food is pretty good with a nice variety. The drinks are strong n tasty. Staff is pretty darned friendly. Really love the atmosphere especially the couches... inc the outdoor couches with the firepit tables!

Cesar Barraza

Great selection of brews including brews that are difficult to find like berry double white. The food has always been great to!

Tom C. De Baca

I had fish and chips was good and they had good water.

Ernest Montoya

Place to eat and chill, mostly great people, hey swami likes it

Patty D

I'm probably the only reviewer that will comment on and recommend the kale salad. Why recommend a salad at a brew house? Because it's that damn good.


Wife and I went to see a friend play, and we were expecting some small place that sold less-than-good quality food, but with cold our surprise it was comfortable, clean, good quality food, and just a fun evening. The environment felt good (like a hard rock cafe feel) and the staff was very friendly

Monica Jaramillo

The atmosphere is super fun if your want a drink and watch some sports listen to great music its a great place! though...mmmm well let's say your not going there for that. The burgers were ok but the fries were delish. My kids pizza that should of been easy was way burnt. So just keep the expectation low on food and game on!

Topher DaMighty

Attentative waiter paid attention to the kids. Also never saw the bottom of my glass!! Food was great, though be warned, a little on the higher priced side.

Dr. Kay Rogers

Enjoyed dinner with friends after an adventurous day! The food was fresh, tasty, and everyone was able to get what they wanted. I met my special needs diet, which is always a good sign. The restaurant is set up for large groups, and will …

Caitlyn Mitchell

Good place. Great service. Good food. Excellent bread pudding! 10/10 would recommend.

alan cofran

Nice place. The price of some stuff can be really expensive just have to pay attention. Had 2 big bottle beers and reg beer was 40 bucks a round. Food is good too.

Reid Rivenburgh

We usually sit at the bar, where the service is almost always great. Food is very good but not outstanding and can be a little hit or miss. Great beer selection, though it was even better when they first opened. The beers, while good, tend to be a bit more mundane these days. Still, you're almost guaranteed to find something you like.

Valerie McKinley

The beginning of the visit was awful, and if I wasnt waiting for someone who really wanted to eat there, I would have left. But there I sat and waited, and I'm happy I did. They quickly redeemed themselves by always refilling drinks, making sure we had enough ranch for our delicious was great. We were able to watch all the football games, drink all the beers, and eat all the treats we wanted. Happy Hour is all day on Sunday and we took full advantage. We stayed for hours and never felt like we needed to hurry and finish to leave. They remained attentive throughout our stay and even watched our table while we went outside to smoke. Food is delicious. Service ended up being great. TVs everywhere.

Chely T

Great beer selection. Good and friendly service. The only critique I have is the food- it’s good but not great: pulled pork, ribs and blackened chicken pasta (slightly bland and/ or dry). Unless it’s a burger! Their burgers are AMAZING- juicy and with that great charbroil flavor. The kid pizza portions are small. Atmosphere is loud but not obnoxious and the music is great. We’ll be back a lot!

Me'a Townsend

I love this place. The aesthetic mimics a hall of fame -- rock and roll thrives here. And you are instantly swept away into the music and the food. I usually get the rockin hot wings with fries on the side. Regular or sweet potato, both are fantastic. Such sweet service. And Friday and Saturday nights are accompanied by a live band. Whether you want ribs or a pork sandwich or even pizza -- Rock and Brews is where it's at!

John Cosentino

Good food,good music and try the Iron Maiden Trooper beer!!!

Stacey B

Had lunch there today, it was okay. I haven’t been here in awhile but the food tasted a bit bland, and the service was poor, our server hardly checked on us the entire time. The other servers looked like they didn’t want to be there and irritated. I’m not sure what changed, but my experience the first time was way better. Also, this place needs another upgrade on the decor.

Lorraine Ellis-Clay

I love coming to rock n brew great spot the food is always good and the wait staff always professional.

Barry Ore

I really like this place. It is a good option, whether it's to meet for a big sporting event or catch a drink or two or a nice casual meal with some friends. I have been surprised by how good my meal was the last couple of times I came here. There are plenty of TVs, and they have good classic rock and roll playing all the time.

Monique Howard

My ribs were amazing, I will be going back soon

Digital Repeater

Rock and Brews is a great dining expérience. The food and drinks are delicious and the staff is very accomidating...good lunch specials with creative dishes. They play great music with several video screens, even a couple sports screens. Im very critical when it comes to dining out... But this was my second visit, and ill be back !

Andrew Fisher

Fun place to go to for drinks and food. I went here for lunch while working out in Albuquerque. Try the BBQ chicken. It was fantastic! It's busy at lunch but not over crowded. Lots of rock memorabilia on the walls and they play rock music both recorded and live.

Rita Gates

Best Bavarian pretzel EVER❗️

Wyatt Stevens

Great food. Great atmosphere. Simple menu.

Niki Scott

Good service with a variety of food. Also a very good selection of beers

Iana Chugunova

We're two international students. We went for shopping around this place, and then decided to go for food at Rock and Brews. But employees gave us a weird look and didn't give us a table, because we had few shopping bags with us (we simply …

Kemion Newman

Food was amazing, service was a little slow due to it being mother's day, amazing environment. Great for families.

Barbra Smith

The best,biggest soft pretzel, and that saracha dip mmm. I had scrimp with pasta delicious. Service was great, our girl was great and knew how to explain the items offered. Great atmosphere, so inviting outside. If you love sports - you will be surrounded by TV's. I loved everything about this place and "I'll Be Back"

Amy Wahrman

Always a great place to go never had a bad meal

Traveling Tdizzle

Delicious everything! Smoke on the water cocktail was neat and tasty. I will be visiting again.

Jay dee

Great smiles and food. I enjoy the music experience and rock and roll icon art also. Interesting the V.A. helped to establish the business. Also may have live music venue but not sure if that is regularly true.

barbara charley

Excellent! Great Food, Music, Atmosphere and Brews.

James Chance

A very nice casual place to eat, drink, watch sports on TV or relax and talk in one of the covered lounge areas. Great. Music plays and a very very large selection of beers.

Katie Singleton

Great service and food. Best thing was how dog friendly they are!!!! I will definitely be going again with my fur baby!!!!

Willard Eastman

Covered enclosed patio not the place to be in a rain storm, staff great on top of their customers needs.

Kacie Desomer

Decent food, good beer, staff is nice, and you are guaranteed to meet at least one unusual person which is awesome

Billy Bryan

We have an offroad group we set up our monthly meet and greet there. Had an awesomenexperince last month. Came in today, and was told we weren't welcome due to a conflict of interest because another off road group also holds their meet there.... conflict of interest????

Katy Walker

Really great atmosphere, food, and service!

Jimmie Kee

Service was ok..... Food took awhile to to get to our table. Check came right after our food was served. That's when our waitress finally started checking our table so we can pay ticket. On the other hand food and drinks were good.

Lizette Pillado

The food is always amazing, they have a great drink selection and they are pet friendly. Definitely one of the best places in town.

Jeff Cotter

Fish Tacos are some of the best in town. Good food and service. Nice music and great patio area.
