Taj Mahal, Best Lunch Buffet

Pass the gravy.

Best Restaurant to Make You Loosen Your Top Button


You know what you're in for. Tucanos is going to ply you with stick after stick of roasted meat and a huge salad bar and a dessert menu. You know you'll wake up tomorrow with a splitting meat hangover. And you know what else? You're ready for it. Because you're going to surreptitiously unbutton your pants as soon as you're seated. Damn the torpedoes—full speed ahead! (LM)

2) Weck's

3) Da Vinci's Gourmet Pizza

Best Lunch Buffet

Taj Mahal

Oh, the joys of stuffing yourself silly with a variety of foodstuffs for one low price, then waddling back to the office only to fall victim to a food coma at your desk. Taj Mahal is your favored place to gorge yourself on tandoori chicken, garlic naan, samosas and that tasty green stuff with the funny cheese in it. The buffet runs 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. seven days a week. And be sure and save room for the mango custard. There's always room for mango custard. (DO’L)

2) India Palace

3) Tomato Café

Most Generous Portions


Wear some loose clothing and get ready to camp out, because you're in for a feast at Weck’s. And not only will you leave stuffed and sleepy, you’ll have leftovers hanging out in your fridge when you wake up from your nap. Standing behind its slogan, Weck’s has truly been a “full belly tradition since 1991.” (TA)

2) Tie: Los Cuates, Sadie's

3) Saggios

Best Chain

Blake's Lotaburger

Blake’s Lotaburger may be a chain, but you’d never know it. Made-to-order burgers that incorporate only the freshest ingredients and topped with the best damn green chile New Mexico has to offer, Blake’s really doesn’t seem like a chain. With 75 locations, Blake’s blankets the state with old-school burger joints that only serve walk-up customers. The newer, modern versions offer a seat inside. Either way, you’ll get a great meal that originated a lot closer to home than one shoveled out a McD’s window. (MT)

2) Flying Star Café

3) Tie: California Pizza Kitchen, Chili's Grill & Bar, Romano's Macaroni Grill
