3.1 rating (75 votes)
With sometimes too-loud live music and a party-hard crowd, it’s usually best to avoid this place on the weekends. But stop in for a late lunch or weeknight burger and a beer, and you’ll get a different experience. The beef here is grass-fed, New Mexico-grown, and steroid- and antibiotic-free, and the cooks at Monte Vista deserve praise for what they do with it. The freshly ground burgers are juicy and big, the chile cheese fries hit the spot, and the beef skewers are tender and one of the best deals on cow in town. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

The surprising thing about Scalo is that it’s simultaneously more fancy and less expensive than you’d think. It’s just as breezy and classy as ever in its high-ceilinged dining room. All of the bottles on the wine list are half-price on Monday nights, and there’s free, live music in the bar. Try their Bloody Mary bar on the weekends or their Sunday brunch. There’s plenty of fresh-pressed espresso to sip with it. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Deep-frying may well be a Scottish national pastime, pursued with the same extremist zeal as soccer hooliganism and pub patronage. Sink your teeth into one of the breaded and fried items Two Fools Tavern offers and you'll understand why. This British Isles-style pub is the brainchild of successful restaurateur Tom White (Scalo and Il Vicino). Highlights include perfect fish and chips, buckets of beer, scads of Scotches, and Saturday and Sunday brunch with, of course, live Celtic music. They also serve a perfectly rationed hot toddy. Order one in the colder months and sip on it by the fireplace. You won’t be disappointed. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

3.83 rating (103 votes)
You love Yanni's. So do we. Their adjoined Lemoni Bar seats about 85 people and is open for lunch, dinner or just cocktails. Painted natural tones and accented with elegant lighting, the lounge provides a subtle contrast to the bright, light and airy dining rooms at Yanni's. It’s an ideal place for pre- or post-movie cocktails and snacks, or more substantial cuisine. Their green chile Bloody Mary will certainly boost your brunch. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

4.22 rating (81 votes)
Zinc is a delightfully renovated historic space in Nob Hill, reborn as an upscale restaurant serving elegant American food with noticeable French inspiration. Downstairs, the cellar bar attracts a younger crowd for drinks, music and daily specials including the $9 beer, brat and pretzel every Thursday. The happy hour menu, wines by the glass and prices are the best around. Give the brunch a try, and while you’re at it, try a Taos Mule from the bar. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinnerOpen Late

2.82 rating (49 votes)
New Mexican food in the Garduño’s vein—plus burgers and booze—in a bucolic valley setting. In fact, El Bruno’s does indeed occupy the site (and, one might assume, the demographic) of the former North Valley Garduño’s. (Alibi Staff, April 10, 2013)

4.03 rating (98 votes)
Touted as New Mexico’s largest restaurant, the North Valley’s El Pinto is best known for its gorgeous, shady environment (perennially Best Patio in our restaurant polls) and award-winning jarred salsa. Try it for margaritas, brunch and a little flan. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

3.25 rating (119 votes)
Vernon’s is a swanky underground spot for good eats and high times, delivered speakeasy-style. The dining room is walled with lustrous, ebony adobe, and the tables are clothed in crisp, black and white linens. By the glass or bottle, there’s plenty of quality hooch. The menu is classic steakhouse stuff with beef tournedos in a silky demi-glace, fresh fish and a damn fine veal Oscar. Check out the Black Diamond Lounge to take in the fancy cocktails and live music. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This excellent local brewery has live music and a large patio to relax at (which makes it an excellent summertime destination). Canteen has a large variety of beers with seasonal items always making appearances on the menu so there is always something new to try. (Alibi Staff, May 21, 2014)

Aside from the obvious priority of providing a fine selection of local beers, the customer service is top-knotch. We prefer the malty, bready pale ale, the Horned Honey Pale. (Alibi Staff, February 23, 2017)

Have an award-winning beer or three and wobble on over to whatever food truck is there (which you can find on their website). While the trucks stay until about 9pm, Marble is open ‘til midnight every night except Sunday. Listen to some live bands every Saturday night or grab a growler, six-pack or keg to go if you want to avoid the loyal following this Albuquerque favorite has gathered. (Alibi Staff, February 3, 2017)

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: High Ridge (See Film Times)

3.05 rating (21 votes)
O'Niell's is comforting, a little cheeky and unapologetically Irish-American. The Juan Tabo location offers a gigantic patio and more floor space, but still features old favorites like the “Burger in Paradise” and fish and chips. And there’s plenty of live music at both locations. Build-your-own Mimosas make O’Niell’s a unique place to brunch. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque - Old Town

High Noon Restaurant & Saloon

3.31 rating (81 votes)
This Old Town favorite offers something to suit most appetites, from green chile cheeseburgers to rock shrimp pappardelle, and it’s all served up in the adobe warmth of a 200-year-old hacienda. Don’t skip the drinks: They offer several excellent Margaritas to slake your thirst. (Alibi Staff, April 14, 2011)

Meals Served: LunchDinner

3.33 rating (3 votes)
Another brewery jostles for recognition in the crowded Albuquerque market place. This one, an expansion of a Portland, Ore. outfit, offers a tastefully appointed and classy dining area and a menu of pub-inspired gastro-delights like fish and chips, burgers and the like. As far as beer is concerned, Ponderosa leans toward the hoppy end of the spectrum, though the Borracho breakfast stout eschews the floral aromatics for dark, malty excellence. (Alibi Staff, October 8, 2014)

Q Bar

800 Rio Grande Blvd NW (Old Town)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 843-6300
www.hotelabq.com
Tues-Thurs: 4pm-11pm Fri: 4pm-2:am Sat: 6pm-2am Closed Sunday and Monday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late
Cuisine: Fusion

3.41 rating (27 votes)
In addition to an upscale selection of booze, the cozy and modern Q Bar serves a brief but pleasantly appetizing menu of nibbles and noshes. The dishes are small enough to make good snacks and expensive enough to keep them that way—you'd have to spend more than you'd like in order to really fill up.

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

3.47 rating (53 votes)
Seasons’ rooftop patio is one of our favorite wine-drinking destinations, especially when it’s nice out. There are heaters up there for chilly nights, the courtyard fountain provides a calming gurgle, the view of the mountains is great, and the happy hour menu has outstanding dishes at more-than-reasonable prices. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This seemingly small hole-in-the-wall is quite a surprise when you first walk in: On the outside one would expect the restaurant to be small, but it’s quite spacious inside. Try the burger with fries for just $6.25. (Alibi Staff, February 22, 2017)
