Albuquerque - North Valley


4.2 rating (15 votes)
The food here is good, and the buffet is affordable, but what makes this restaurant one of our favorites is its sprawling indoor pond and its overall atmosphere and decor. It’s a special kind of magic on its own, and let’s be honest, Chinese buffets never get old. (Alibi Staff, October 9, 2013)

You have enough to worry about without the stress of not knowing where your next baked good is going to come from. Have a buttery fruit pastry, a slice of pie or buy a loaf of that nice, spongy white bread to take home and tear off chunks to stuff in your mouth in a secret corner of the kitchen. We won’t tell.

If it’s salt-of-the-earth, tried-and-true New Mexican favorites you’re after, hit up a Garcia’s in your area. It’s got daily specials, breakfast anytime and even a "gringo menu" that’ll fill you up without depleting your wallet. The huevos rancheros with green chile will leave you licking the plate and contemplating seconds.

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).

Mon-Sat 10am-6pm (hours can change without notice)

4.45 rating (22 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 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

Mon-Sun: 7am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner

4.22 rating (10 votes)
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
Mon-Sun 7am-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
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 sopapillas. 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 Restaurant & Pizzeria

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 all-you-can-eat 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)

3.41 rating (12 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 Cafe

2711 Fourth Street NW (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM 87107
(505) 344-6266
Mon-Thurs: 9am-6pm Fri-Sat: 9am-8pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Cuisine: New Mexican

4.51 rating (21 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. If your kids are just being introduced to the stuff, start ’em off here. The red chile is velvety smooth, sweet and hot, but not as hot as the tangy green. The turnover (a calzone-shaped stuffed sopaipilla) or Mexican pizza on fresh fry bread is guaranteed to make a regular out of you. Go for lunch during the week and dinner on Friday and Saturday. (Alibi Staff, October 13, 2010)

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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Murphy’s Mule Barn

9700 Second Street NW (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM 87114
(505) 898-7660
Mon-Sat: 6am-8pm Sun: 7am-2pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Cuisine: American, Diner

4.15 rating (21 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 delicious homemade pies and cakes lovingly made by Granny. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

A very nice burger, somewhat reminiscent of Blake’s but better. Hot and fresh off the grill with a soft, shiny bun—no chewy leather bun here. The portion sizes are off the chart, and when ordering anything with green chile, expect a large slab of it instead of miniscule, chopped up pieces. Papa Burgers know burgers. (Alibi Staff, November 21, 2013)

Pastian's Bakery

3320 Second Street NW (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 345-7773
Mon-Fri: 6:30am-5:00pm Sat: 7:30am- 3:30pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Breakfast

4.23 rating (16 votes)
Family-owned for 35 years, Pastian's offers everything from breads and pies to pastries and cookies. Operating as a retail and wholesale bakery, much of its business is with hotels and restaurants, but a visit here to the small café with friendly service is well worth the trip. It's cheap, too, with pastries, empanadas and Danishes all under $1. The cherry turnovers perfectly balance crisp cinnamon sugar pastry and chewy fruit filling. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Pizza 9, from the former owner of Chicago Beef, slings dough at multiple locations across town. It’s not deep-dish, but the puffed up, buttery crust will warm Midwestern hearts, as will the Fire Eater pie—a monument to capsaicin, it scathes taste buds with pepperoni, jalapeños, green chile and hot giardiniera relish. With gluten-free crust options, it’s a perfect spot for groups with opposing dietary needs, and with several locations, you can have it all delivered right to your front door!

Sharing the Village Shops with Vernon’s—the jazz-filled steakhouse founded by the Calico Café family—Prime is a gourmet sandwich shop. 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.

Two words: fry bread. Use this heaping hunk of pillowy carbs to sop up green or red chile posole, mutton stew and huevos rancheros. When you’re stuffed tighter than a stocking on Christmas morning, go check out what else is for sale at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Rincon Del Pollo

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)
