Step back in time for old-fashioned diner food and atmosphere with a New Mexican twist (incarnate in the hot and spicy Frito pie). The 66 Diner dishes up yummy burgers and fries, breakfast plates and daily specials like chicken pot pie with cream gravy or crispy-fried po’ boys. The real stars in this place, though, are the awesome frozen desserts. They run the gamut from mammoth banana splits to 99-cent teeny-weeny hot fudge sundaes. The milkshakes come in almost any flavor combination you can think of and are some of the creamiest, most lip-smacking concoctions around. (Alibi Staff, October 13, 2010)

Ayurvedic cuisine supposedly works with your body’s natural energies and constitution to create “soul” food that’s on a whole new plane. Winners of Best Vegetarian in our restaurant poll several years running, Annapurna’s food is satisfying but never heavy and, well, you just feel better after you eat there. Try Sunday brunch with spiced gluten-free, vegan pancakes and breakfast quinoa (but you’ll have to live without scrambled eggs, sorry). The shaded courtyard to the side of the restaurant is spectacular. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Parked on Harvard’s prime stretch of UNM territory, Bricklight Dive is tailor-made for the University crowd: a short, inexpensive menu of Italian “street food” (lots of bread-based snacks with toppings; some nice, filling salads) and local beers for just a few bucks. The people-watching on the patio is excellent if you can get a spot. From the same folks behind Q Burger in Downtown. (Alibi Staff, August 23, 2011)

Brickyard Pizza is known for fast slices and beers on the cheap. It's the only full bar directly across from UNM, making it the prime watering hole for your post-theater and post- or pre-class needs. It also sometimes has live music and, usually, more televised sports than you can handle. The best thing about Brickyard, though, is that it's also the only noncorporate pizza establishment with late-night delivery (until 2:30am on Friday and Saturday and until 1:30am all other nights) in Burque, which satiates an otherwise unfortunate void.

In the front, it's a standard restaurant laid out with a small bar and big window facing the street. Travel a short way through a blacklit hall and enter the kind of divey neighborhood hangout this city needs more of, complete with TVs, a jukebox, a ping-pong table, air hockey and arcade games. Though the entire menu is available no matter where you choose to spend your time, you can't go wrong with the twisty-crust pizza. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

It has chocolate in the name ... how could it not be delicious? The Chocolate Maven is tucked nicely into the same warehouse where bakers produce fresh scones, cakes and other delectables found at local coffee shops and grocers. The café is soft and quiet, with an Italian country villa feel. If you sit on the ground floor, you can watch the bakers make cinnamon rolls and knead bread as you tear into wonderful dishes like roast beef and Gouda cheese on freshly baked sourdough bread. Even if you’re too stuffed to eat dessert after lunch, make sure to look at all the fine creations and take some home for later. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Chow’s is one of those rare Chinese food finds that doesn’t make you feel too guilty about digging into a steaming pile of noodles. In fact, this place features extremely fresh and flavorful dishes that jump off the plate with color. Try the Dragon sesame chicken and the Volcano fish, not to mention their delicious herbal tea and gingered bok choy. Pick up some chopsticks, and head to Chow’s for lighter, yet zesty, fare.

The rambly old building has plenty of dark corners to hide in as you make your way through the extensive beer menu and, if the weather’s nice, an inviting patio area to scarf down a brick-oven cooked pizza in the fresh spring breeze. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

Taste buds with indecisive tendencies might find the satisfaction they crave at Counter Culture. While the café specializes in brunch, choosy diners select from a wall-sized menu stacked with eclectic salads, sandwiches, French toast and pancakes, all fresh and generously portioned. The sandwich combo, which comes with a side salad and a cup of soup, is a slamming deal (we recommend the salmon Thai coconut soup), leaving enough change in your pocket for that slice of chocolate cake you won't be able to resist. The casual atmosphere, quick service and quality food make Counter Culture a Santa Fe staple. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

4.2 rating (91 votes)
For years, Cowgirl has been our most-visited restaurant in the capital. It's easy to find, there are always enough tables, the people-watching is great, and the food keeps coming until midnight. Plus, the barbecue and Southern-style food is reasonably priced. Do not miss out on the chili cheese baked potato topped with your choice of beef or veggie chili. Wash it down with a cold beer or a giant soda. This is a place for lunch and dinner, but you can also get simple breakfast burritos to go. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

4.49 rating (140 votes)
While The Cube’s presentation is upscale, the portions you’ll get are of standard barbecue proportions, unlikely to send you home hungry. Ribs, chicken, brisket, links and pulled pork are hickory-wood-smoked and prepared with a spice rub (“dry”) or drenched in tangy, smoky, sweet, acidic sauce (“wet”). Both versions are excellent. Hot dog lovers will have plenty to chew on with Chicago dogs, bacon-wrapped Guadalajara dogs and 505 dogs (bacon, avocado and green chile). And with mapley candied yams, mac and cheese, and skin-on fries, the sides at The Cube are hardly sidenotes. To wash down your meal, there’s a wine and beer list and a hefty menu of house-made mousses, pies and muffins for dessert. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

DG’s serves inexpensive, satisfying, hot and cold sandwiches in a quiet West University neighborhood. The possibilities for a customized ’wich are endless, whether you’re after a six-inch snack or a two-foot torpedo. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Gelato is a gift from the gods. These flavors are fantastic (try the hazelnut), the texture is soothing, and it's lower in fat than ice cream. Stop by Ecco for a tasty frozen treat, a fresh deli sandwich and a European-style café experience. Open until 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays—a godsend for latenight munchers in the area!

This is another one of our all-time Santa Fe favorites. We go for Spanish-style tapas in one of the quiet dining rooms. Sometimes we stop in for a late-night drink and some entertainment in the lively bar up front. Whether it's a flamenco guitarist and dancers, or a Western swing band, the bar is always fun.

Cuisine: New Mexican

3.32 rating (78 votes)
A can’t-miss New Mexican spot steeped in lived-in UNM area charm. There are amazing beans, potatoes and, of course, sopaipillas. And some really tasty green chile chicken enchiladas, all of which are complemented by a cerveza or a wine cocktail. And live guitar music. And a cool patio on which to take the evening air. If there’s Frito pie on the specials board, get it. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Frontier is an Albuquerque staple that most folks can agree on. Breakfast burritos, sweet rolls, huevos rancheros, green chile stew, shakes, fresh-squeezed orange juice—it’s all great. The ambience is strictly cafeteria plus plenty of interesting characters to talk to after a late-night study session. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Gyros is a modern-looking Greek place. None of that cheesy wall-to-wall blue and white paint or brimming flower pots here. Instead, Gyros opts for a kind of metallic sheen. Luckily, the food is just as reasonably priced as the next Greek joint. The souvlaki and gyros are good, but be sure to try the kota reganato and the honey-soaked baklava.

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.

India Palace in Santa Fe is a different restaurant from those in Albuquerque but maintains the same lavish service, exquisite food and deluxe ambience. Say yes to the sinus-clearing prawns vindaloo and addictive chicken korma. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
