In the grand style of down-home New Mexican comfort food, just about everything here—selected as the Best New Mexican Restaurant in Albuquerque in past reader polls—is smothered in chile and cheese. House specialties include fajitas, stuffed sopaipillas, enchiladas and Indian tacos. Should you worry about getting fat? Naaah. They’re bound to come up with a "chile ’n’ cheese diet" any day now.

This restaurant has a cozy atmosphere and notably friendly staff. The beef tacos are finger-lickin’ good but not at all greasy—like our abuelita used to make. The green chile is delectable with just the right amount of spicy goodness. Devour a sopaipilla with honey. We bet you can't eat just one. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The Burrito Lady

Albuquerque NM 87112
(505) 271-2268
Tue-Fri 6am-2pm Sat-Mon closed (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch
Cuisine: New Mexican

4.35 rating (21 votes)
If you overlook the Styrofoam plates, The Burrito Lady’s Santa Rosa-style cooking is about as homemade as it gets. There are fresh grilled tacos, tamales year-round, stacked enchiladas and, of course, the burritos—about 20 different varieties, served plain, smothered in chile and cheese, or with fluffy Spanish rice and refried beans. Both the red and green chile are delicious, so go ahead and order Christmas. Cash only! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Ah, the bar at Cervantes. It represents Albuquerque as we like to think of it: unbound by trends, not particularly fashionable, sometimes sketchy but mostly just full of good people. Go when it’s so hot you can’t bear one more minute in the sun. Drink enough Margaritas to take the pain away. Then order up some of Cervantes’ home-cooked New Mexican food and eat until you’re stuffed. Be sure to sit in the bar section and take advantage of their jukebox to absorb the full mood and energy of this Albuquerque gem. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner

3.04 rating (14 votes)
In the old (and beautifully renovated) Sunshine Market building on Mountain and 12th Street, Cocina Azul has the feel of a high-end coffee shop. The food is textbook New Mexican—the huevos rancheros, carne adovada enchiladas and tamales with buttery, sweet red chile are all tasty. For dessert, big servings of flan have sturdy, pleasing, fresh and fabulous flavor. (Alibi Staff, September 16, 2010)

Harry's Roadhouse

96 Old Las Vegas Hwy. (Santa Fe)
Santa Fe NM 87505
(505) 989-4629
Mon-Sun: 7am-9:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinner

3 rating (27 votes)
Harry's Roadhouse exists somewhere in the realm between traditional roadside diner and funky, New Mexican hacienda. We recommend the colorful Roadhouse tostada with black beans, chopped veggies and guacamole, or any New Mexican item with turkey and green chile. If you're in the mood for something a little different, try the grilled salmon tacos or LaMont's all-natural buffalo burger. Take a seat at the bar and dive into a slice of coconut cream pie or a homemade ice cream sandwich. Make sure to ask the friendly waitstaff about the specials, which also include brunch and dessert.

Hot Tamales New Mexican Food

1520 Rio Rancho Blvd SE (Rio Rancho)
Rio Rancho NM 87124
505-962-0123
Hot Tamales
Mon to Fri 11am-9pm Sat to Sunday 8am-9pm (hours can change without notice)

4.16 rating (17 votes)
High quality New Mexican food in the heart of Rio Rancho. The atmosphere here is a little rough around the edges, but the service is friendly, and the food is good, especially the red and green chile (ground from pods and fire roasted, respectively). For breakfast, try the burrito puerco todo, with ham, sausage, bacon and eggs stuffed into a flour tortilla and smothered with the chile of your choice. (Alibi Staff, November 21, 2013)

Little Anita's

10200 Corrales Road NW (Corrales)
Albuquerque NM 87114
(505) 899-2670‎
Tues-Sat: 7am-8pm Sun-Mon: 7am-2pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Cuisine: New Mexican

3.67 rating (7 votes)
Little Anita's menu is New Mexican to the core, with enchiladas, burritos, carne adovada and stuffed sopaipillas. The red chile is generally milder than their green but is seasoned just right. Consistency, generous portions and fair prices make Little Anita's an Albuquerque mainstay—not to mention its many locations ranging from full-service dining to quick and easy take-out counters. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Little Red Hamburger Hut

1501 Mountain NW (Old Town)
Albuquerque NM 87104
(505) 304-1819
Mon-Sat 10:30am-9pm (hours can change without notice)

4.64 rating (19 votes)
Little Red Hamburger Hut has the best burgers around. Called a Little Red, a meaty, perfectly grilled all-beef patty is topped with lettuce, onion and thick, piquant red chile, then bundled in a billowy white bun. The bun soaks up the sauce and clings to the meat, bringing all the flavors together. Burgers are served either on a bun or tortilla and can be ordered small, medium or large. Cheese and chile (in either color) never cost extra, and satisfaction is always guaranteed. Cash only! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Ortega’s

3617 Wyoming NE (Uptown)
Albuquerque NM 87111
(505) 298-0223
Mon-Sat: 11am-8:30pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

3.2 rating (5 votes)
Ortega’s bills itself as serving “healthy New Mexican” cuisine. A contradiction in terms, you say? Well, kind of. You’ll still get the goopy eggs, greasy cheese and meaty red chile, but with a few surprising differences. Notably, it serves whole beans instead of refried, uses no lard and makes whole-wheat sopaipillas. That’s right—whole-wheat sopaipillas. Which are deep-fried. But, hey, at least they have more fiber. Plus, Hector Pimentel’s famous “romantic” guitar show has been scientifically proven to aide in digestion. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Richard’s Mexican Restaurant

3301 Menaul Blvd NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM 87107
(505) 881-1039
Mon-Sat: 8am-3:30pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch
Nearby Theater: Movies 8 (See Film Times)

4.5 rating (22 votes)
Ever had vegetarian posole? The menu at Richard’s features traditional plates like green chile chicken enchiladas and tostadas compuestas, but also offers healthier, low-fat and vegetarian fare. And, believe it or not, the light plates are scrumptious. Be sure to order some fideo (tasty marinated noodles) on the side. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Sadie’s

6230 Fourth Street NW (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 345-5339

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Century Rio (See Film Times)
Cuisine: New Mexican

2.31 rating (79 votes)
Walking into Sadie's is like walking into your rich old New Mexican tia’s house. The food smells good, the atmosphere is comfortable and it's OK if you get a little loud. Sadie's has a very friendly and casual staff and huge, chile-smothered portions of food. We like to go for dinner with a big group and drink too many margaritas (except for the designated driver, of course). (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The Shed

113 1/2 East Palace (Santa Fe)
Santa Fe NM 87501
(505) 982-9030

Mon-Sat: 11am-2:30pm, 5:30-9pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: UA DeVargas (See Film Times)

2.97 rating (30 votes)
The Shed is one of the best New Mexican restaurants in town, and it's just off the Plaza in an adobe building dating back to 1692. Stop in for a Margarita and a stack of blue corn enchiladas with a side of posole. Everything here comes with garlic bread, which is strange, yet delicious. Oh, and The Shed makes its own pies. Try a slice.

Tortilla Flats reopened after renovations that felt like forever to addicts of its chicken enchiladas and huevos rancheros. The building suits this business well, adding a little more style to the still friendly mom-and-pop New Mexican restaurant. The new digs also include patio dining and an attractive bar. Tortilla Flats offers some great options for vegetarians, like the vegetarian quesadilla or burrito stuffed full of steamed veggies and cheese. If you love guacamole, try the quesadilla especial de carne with sauteed onions and a side of red or green. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
