I Will Gladly Pay You Tuesday
For a 5 Star burger today
From Dial-Up to Dine-In
Spinn’s Burgers and Beer
The future looks bright at Shade Tree Customs and Café
Albuquerque is busting at the seams with new eating spots. I salivate whenever I see a chain-link fence with a wind-whipped banner shouting, “Opening Soon!” But on the hunt for recently opened eateries, I also found an established treasure or two.
Local meats, exotic flavors
There’s nothing average about this Jo
If you had to pick a single Albuquerque street on which to dine for the rest of your life, you could do worse than Fourth. The diversity of restaurants on this North Valley artery is matched by a uniform unpretentiousness, as if by some silent but Spanglish-speaking truce. Dennis Apodaca has built a restaurant empire on a single half-mile stretch of that pavement. First came Sophia’s Place, named after his daughter. Then came Ezra’s Place, named after his son. And finally Jo’s Place, named after his mom, joined the block party in March.

Independence Grill Closed
Maybe you already heard, but the patriotically decorated Independence Grill shut its doors on Sunday, March 14. Here’s the goodbye post from near midnight on the locally owned restaurant’s Facebook page:
So that's all she wrote folks! Thank you so much for your support of our risky business venture this last year and a half. We have so many memories. Sadly, we have closed up shop tonight and will miss you all. :( We wish more than anyone that we could have made our little Indy Grill a lasting success.
It may have been kind of sudden, as earlier in the day at around 4:30 p.m., the grill posted:
I have to say...I finally expanded and tried our Revolutionary Burger yesterday with the Raspberry Chipotle Sauce, cream cheese, and pineapple slaw and have been wondering why I haven't had on every day for the last year! You should DEFINITELY make today the day to try one.
The place was known for its many variations on the hamburger form and for its support of the tea party movement.
