Albuquerque - North Valley

Itsa Italian Ice

215 Phoenix NW (at Second Street) (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 268-2560
Tues- Sat: 11am-7:30 pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

4.93 rating (8 votes)
Itsa Italian Ice is an old favorite for many Burqueños. Originally located on Lomas years ago, Itsa was—and is—for kids and grown-ups alike. Diners can choose from several fruity flavors like cantaloupe, lemon, cherry, watermelon, black raspberry, lime, grape or banana, as well as other flavors like chocolate or "blue moon" (cotton candy). Each tastes remarkably like the food it was named for, and the portion sizes are enormous. On the hot side, there are hamburgers, dogs, and a Philly cheese steak that’s tender and visibly marbled, made with steak that actually tastes like steak. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Joe S. Sausage and Ravioli

Suite C
Albuquerque NM
(505) 688-0445

4.43 rating (21 votes)
This little North Valley specialty store turns out three things—sausage, ravioli and pierogi. You know it’s got to be good. An amazing and constantly changing variety of flavors (“crazy hott” Italian, maple-blueberry or pico de gallo sausages; dolce mare, salsiccia Vesuvius, goat cheese with red pepper and garlic raviolis) are made fresh every day by Joe S. Sausage himself, which he freezes and sells for his loyal customers to take home. Plop the raviolis in some simmering water for a few minutes and they cook up perfectly tender. Serve alongside Joe’s sizzling-fresh sausage and you’ve got the fastest, most delicious “homemade” meal you’ve ever tasted. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

La Montañita Co-op

2400 Rio Grande NW (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 242-8800
www.lamontanita.coop
Mon-Sun: 7am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner

4.19 rating (9 votes)
Voted Best Produce Selection in our polls. The phrase “grocery café” typically conjures visions of orangey heat lamp chicken and Chinese food that’s been marinating in a pool of grease since the Yang Dynasty. Fortunately for us, La Montañita Co-op is not your typical grocery store. Specializing in local, organic and otherwise natural food products, the deli is no exception and doesn’t disappoint in taste or selection. The deli folks will make a hearty sandwich to your liking or pick up a quick pint of one of the tasty hot or cold spreads and salads. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Little Anita's Express

6131 Fourth Street NW (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 345-4567
Cuisine: New Mexican

2.75 rating (4 votes)
Little Anita's menu is New Mexican to the core, with enchiladas, burritos, carne adovada and stuffed sopaipillas. The red chile is generally milder than their green but is seasoned just right. Consistency, generous portions and fair prices make Little Anita's an Albuquerque mainstay—not to mention its many locations ranging from full-service dining to quick and easy take-out counters (like this one). Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Luigi’s

Meals Served: LunchDinner

3.76 rating (20 votes)
Luigi and his mom, Tina, do all of the Italian cooking themselves at this North Valley staple. Try the pasta dishes with a variety of family recipe sauces or the veal and seafood specialties; then top it all off with a fresh cannoli or a slice of homemade tiramisu. (There’s also New York-style and Sicilian pizzas and calzones.) Luigi’s dishes out a daily all-you-can-eat buffet (along with an AYCE spaghetti special for lunch) and a seafood buffet on Friday evenings. Cap it all off with a fresh espresso and, believe us, you won't leave hungry. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Mario’s Pizzeria & Ristorante

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Century Rio (See Film Times)
Cuisine: Italian, Pizza

3.5 rating (11 votes)
Mario’s is great in the afternoon after the lunch crowds and before dinner for any size of meal. The sandwiches, calzones and pizzas are far more substantial. You and the guys just come in from a rousing game of golf? Stop in the afternoon and share Mario’s mega meat pizza or the gumba nachos. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Mary & Tito’s

2711 Fourth Street NW (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 344-6266
Mon-Thurs: 9am-6pm Fri-Sat: 9am-8pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Cuisine: New Mexican

4.49 rating (19 votes)
One of the crown jewels of Albuquerque, Mary & Tito’s is the kind of place you’ll want to bring visitors so they can experience the wonder of chile. The red chile here is velvety smooth, sweet and hot, but not as hot as the fruity green. For a really bad hangover, you’ll need a turnover, a calzone-shaped stuffed sopaipilla that’s guaranteed to make a regular out of you. Go for lunch during the week and dinner on Friday and Saturday. Also, Mary & Tito’s finally takes credit cards!

Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.5 rating (2 votes)
Thick slices of beef, tender barbecued chicken and unbeatable cornmeal-dusted catfish are just a few of the items that make this a premier restaurant to blow your diet sky-high. But what really pushes this place over the edge are the fantastic side dishes: like addictive fried okra; smoky, salty greens; and tender black-eyed peas, which are prepared with the same reverence and care as the main attractions. We forbid you from leaving without first ordering a slice of superb sweet potato pie or a piping-hot bowl of cherry cobbler à la mode. Aw, what the hell—just get both and die happy. If you’re in a hurry, you can order to-go items from a side pickup area. Closed Mondays. (Alibi Staff, September 29, 2011)

Albuquerque NM
(505) 898-7660
Mon-Sat: 6am-8pm Sun: 7am-2:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Cuisine: American, Diner

4.14 rating (17 votes)
This is honest, no-frills American diner food without the diner. The ambience feels a bit like a large, ranch-style living room that’s been converted into a neighborhood restaurant. Chicken-fried steak and biscuits and gravy abound in massive portions and are every bit as good as your childhood memories. And if you skip dessert, you’re only cheating yourself out of seriously delish homemade pies and cakes, lovingly made by Granny. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Pastian's Bakery

Family-owned 35 years, Pastian's offers everything from breads and pies to pastries and cookies. It's cheap, too: A white or chocolate cupcake with made-from-scratch buttercream icing is just 52 cents a pop. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

4.5 rating (2 votes)
Sharing the Village Shops with Vernon’s—the jazz-filled steakhouse founded by the Calico Café family—Prime is a gourmet sandwich shop that will eventually include a wine boutique. The decor is both rustic and contemporary. On the menu, the focus is meat—especially prime beef. You can buy New Mexico grass-fed steaks by the pound to grill at home, or have lunch and a beer on the spacious patio. (Alibi Staff, September 29, 2011)

3.78 rating (9 votes)
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)

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Century Rio (See Film Times)
Cuisine: New Mexican

2.35 rating (57 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)

Sophia’s Place

6313 Fourth Street NW (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 345-3935

Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinner

4.24 rating (32 votes)
If you’ve got a hankering for a seasoned steak sandwich or some fresh fish tacos, give Sophia’s a try. The very friendly service and eclectic fare make the eatery a true North Valley gem and one of the best restaurants in Albuquerque. Eat an organic egg omelet (served with fresh salad greens and papitas ) inside the cozy adobe walls or on the sunny patio. The burritos and red chile are wonderful, as are the pancakes, which tied for Best Pancakes in the 2007 BoB Restaurant poll.

Sure, you’ve had tea before, but have you ever really had tea before? You know, with quaint little scones and clotted cream? Do you even know what clotted cream is? Well, the ladies over at the St. James Tearoom sure do, and they’d love to inform and inspire you with the lost art of proper tea service—the proprietress, Mary Alice Higbie, is a certified tea consultant through the Protocol School of Washington in D.C. (we’re serious). The $25 full afternoon tea includes a pot of premium loose tea and an elegant three-tiered serving tray that’s loaded with assorted savories and finger sandwiches, scones, clotted cream and jam, homemade lemon curd and other sweets. For a $7 upgrade you can have a Royal Tea, which includes a glass of Gruet (call for reservations). The Tearoom’s Cherriwyn China Shop carries a lovely selection of tea accessories, too.

Vernon’s is a swanky underground spot for good eats and high times, delivered speakeasy-style. The dining room is walled with lustrous, ebony-adobe, and the tables are clothed in crisp, black and white linens. By the glass or bottle, there’s plenty of quality hooch. The menu is classic steakhouse stuff, with beef tournedos in a silky demi-glace, fresh fish and a damn fine veal Oscar. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
