In the grand style of down-home New Mexican comfort food, just about everything hereselected as the Best New Mexican Restaurant in Albuquerque in past reader pollsis 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.

A New Mexico tradition since 1952! For a quick, award-winning (for both Best Burger and Best French Fries) burger or chili dog, fresh fries and fountain favorites that hit the spot for just a pocketful of change, it’s got to be Blake’s. Countless counters are scattered throughout the city, and each is a model of efficiency and cleanliness. Why look any further? They’re easy to spot from afarjust keep an eye out for the giant Asian Uncle Sam sign. This one even has a drive-through. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Cecilia’s is the matriarch of one of Albuquerque’s best breakfast burritos and red chile. Clinging close to the heart of Downtown on Sixth Street and Silver, Cecilia makes the food herself in the kitchen. The red chile is no joke, and the prices are pretty friggin’ cheap too.

Besides having the Best Pizza, according to past Best of Burque Restaurants polls, Dion's also has a wonderful selection of saladsparticularly the Greek or any of the “gourmet” salads with spring-mix greenssandwiches (the pastrami is especially good) and out of this world house Ranch dressing. The pizza is made fresh, and the folks at Dion’s have had over 30 years to perfect their unique Albuqerque take on pizza pie. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Sometimes we're so anxious for a double green chile cheeseburger, we dig in without even washing our hands. That's how tantalizing this food is! The flashing sign beckons us to hot dog mecca, where we indulge in not only dogs but the essential tater tots and Frito pie. Get your dogs to go and watch the hot air balloons dance in the sky. Or go inside the Dog House and find a seat at the tiny counter, and call it a day with a milkshake. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

You’d be fine just ordering a bag of house-made tortillas and sitting down. But luckily, Duran’s also has some of the best enchiladas in town, and Duran’s Station serves beer and wine to cool you down after eating their piping hot chile. Order anything “christmas” style and you’ll fit right in with the regulars. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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. And live guitar music. And, yum. If there’s Frito pie on the specials board, get it.

With a refreshing outside eating area, an oil painting of a Shih Tzu and an overall gorgeous North Valley location, El Pinto is famously known for their margaritas and award-winning jarred salsa. Go for brunch, lunch or dinner, and be sure to try a little flan. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Once known as Double Rainbow, Flying Star has been satisfying Albuquerque’s sweet tooth for over a quarter of a century. Serving breakfast all day and milkshakes that bring the boys to the yard, this Albuqurque classic is a must. (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 tons of John Wayne art. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The original Fourth Street location is vibrant and colorful with a very Mexican-style diner feel. Check out the giant paintings of the founder, Andy Garcia, and then move on to the famous food. From the sweetheart of New Mexican cookies, biscochitos, to the carne adovada, Garcia’s is a little piece of Albuquerque dining we cherish. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

1.6 rating (5 votes)
A long-standing New Mexican fixture, Garduño’s knows how to put the real meaning in “happy hour” with their expansive margarita menu and margarita flights. Try their Santa Fe blue enchiladas and treat yourself to fried ice cream, served in a sugar tostada bowl and drizzled with honey, the real New Mexican way! (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

This ray of sunshine in Huning Highland, made famous by shady meetings between Walter White and Lydia Rodarte-Quayle of “Breaking Bad,” serves gourmet breakfast and lunch made with local ingredients, sells housemade English muffins and has a mini-shop filled with goodies like honey, jams, mustards and vinegars, not to mention non-edibles like cookbooks, serving vessels and cards. The hot and cold sandwiches are dandy and come with twee sides of sliced bread-and-butter pickles and fruit salad. There’s also a large, shaded patio and incredible housemade cupcakes. Team this up with an espresso bar, wine service and “Sangria Saturdays,” and the power of triumvirate treats awaits you. Voted Best Brunch for 2013. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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)

The faded grandeur of this New Mexican standby has been a cornerstone of Old Town since before most tourists even knew about the district. The food is usually pretty great (though there are off-days), but one of the main pleasures of dining here lies in exploring the rambling old hacienda’s many rooms. And it’s totally haunted, by the way. (Alibi Staff, November 21, 2013)

3.91 rating (20 votes)
Do not leave The Range without ordering something involving bacon and queso, even if it means you have to get side dishes of them both. These people serve thick, meaty bacon and obviously understand the power of the dreamy, cheesy creation we call queso to transform simple breakfast items from ho-hum to hot damn! Or, if you’re feeling less indulgent, order a giant cobb salad with roast turkey and buttery Cabernet vinaigrette. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

2.35 rating (59 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 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). Voted Best Margarita for 2013. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Besides the yummy hamburgers and plentiful beer varieties, it’s also quite exciting to see another good mom ’n’ pop taking root at the lonely intersection of Coors and Montaño. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Weck’s, oh Weck’s, how we yearn for your bottomless drinks, your enormous coffee cakes and your sausage and bacon gravy. How we long to return for another “bowl o’ stuff” filled with hash browns, carne adovada, red chile and an over-easy egg. How we dream at night of your belly-bustin’ pancakes! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
