Zacatecas is an upscale taco-and-tequila concept and the baby of Mark Kiffin, whose Santa Fe restaurant The Compound is renowned for its ingredients and artistry. His Pacific rock cod taco is perfectly browned on the outside, juicy on the inside and oozing with glorious fish grease. With the addition of coleslaw and habañero salsa, this is not the taco of anyone’s abuelita. Toast her health with a three-mescal sampler, which comes in terra cotta dishes. Often features live music. (Alibi Staff, May 3, 2012)

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)

A stone’s throw away from Alameda, this bright red and yellow brick building is a haven for pollo sabroso. You can get your chicken dressed in gravy, swimming in red or green chile, or stuffed into a burrito, torta or taco (to name a few); better still, wash it down with a fresh glass of horchata. In a town of too-often lifeless refried beans, Rincon served us the best home-style frijoles we’ve had in a shamefully long time. The chicken soup is mild and thick with rice and chunks of celery, carrot and yellow bell pepper. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Acapulco Tacos & Burros

These brightly painted exteriors serve quick, tasty Mexican standards for cheap. The burritos come wrapped in a delightfully moist and tender tortilla and are quite satisfying for the price (some are just $1.75). In fact, the most expensive dinner plate you can buy here comes in at just under $5 and features seven items. Beware: Acapulco is more of a take out than sit down place, and you’ll probably end up eating everything you bought before you make it back home. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Get the taste of authentic Old Mexico without going south of the border. There’s soothing melón agua fresca, and the horchata is made fresh with rice, almonds, a little sugar and flavored with a vanilla bean. There’s menudo and carnitas, and the salsa is hot, hot, hot. It’s kid-friendly, and breakfast is served all day; so enjoy yourself, por favor. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The thought of a restaurant without green chile scares the crap out of most New Mexicans, but if you can get past the initial shock, the authentic Mexican food at Federico’s is good and good for you. The cheap prices don’t reflect the grande portions, or the top-rate quality of the ingredients. Take the kids, take the dog or just take yourself out for a late plate of authentic tacos, burritos, chimichangas and an ice-cold horchata. Your stomach and your wallet will thank you in the morning.

The service in this restaurant is impressive. The tortilla chips are big and brawny—you could tile a roof with ’em—and the queso is just right; not too thick or thin, with plenty of green chile. Bring your family here and enjoy the neon cacti décor with a chilaquile casserole (layered with carne adovada, melted cheese, spicy green vegetables, sweet corn and tostadas smothered in red chile). Choices like Tampico tacos, green tamale pie, camarones Victor and the “macho” enchilada are a brief departure from the usual, but still traditional enough to appeal to purists.

A tiny, L-shaped Mexican joint with a tiny, tempting menu of tacos, tostadas and more. Order a ceviche tostada and some tacos al pastor and you’ll feel like you’re sitting on the beach of a coastal Mexican getaway. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Upgrade your late-night Taco B run for a stop at Taco C. This San Antonio-based Mexican chain makes its tortillas to order and four varieties of salsas fresh every day. There’s plenty of crunchy-fried fare, but on the healthier side, there are soft tacos, salads and citrus-marinated rotisserie chicken. And what was the last fast food joint you went to that served beer and Margaritas? (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Upgrade your late-night Taco B run for a stop at Taco C. This San Antonio-based Mexican chain makes their tortillas to order along with horchata and four varieties of salsas fresh every day. Fajitas, crunchy-fried combination plates, quesadillas, even breakfast and dessert items. On the healthier side, there are soft tacos, salads and citrus-marinated rotisserie chicken. And what was the last fast food joint you went to that served beer and Margaritas? (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Los Compadres used to be a humble, rambling building on Isleta, but has now moved into an old Village Inn on Central near the BioPark. On the menu are all of your traditional New Mexican favorites (adovada and posole) plus a sizable list of real Mexican food, like tacos al pastor, desebrada burritos and bistec a la Mexicana. The chips and salsa are especially good. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Next time you need some quick takeout, try Perico’s beef flauta plate—shredded beef rolled in corn tortillas then deep-fried. It comes with sour cream and guacamole, a rice-bean-cheese combo and a little salad with delicious mystery dressing. And the cooks always put forks, spoons, knives, napkins and salsa in your bag without making you ask. Also, Perico’s has more than 20 burrito combinations that, for a few pennies more, can be fried into a chimichanga. (Alibi Staff, October 9, 2013)
