You have to love a place that makes its own hot dogs. Properly known as Vienna sausages, they're just one of more than 25 different kinds of sausages made at this 35-year-old neighborhood shop. Also popular are the andouille (used for gumbo) and white bratwurst (made with pork and veal), though you'll naturally be curious about Alpine's head cheese (not nearly as gross as it sounds) and blood and tongue sausage (ditto). Look for house-smoked hams and bacon, several kinds of Black Forest ham, roast beef, pastrami and European cheeses. If you have to wait in line, use your time to scan the shelves for gooseberry jam, German pickles, Norwegian breads and other Northern European delicacies. Don't forget to ask about the beef jerky and beef sticks. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

You can bank on getting good pie here. From plain old cheese to the "super combo"—pepperoni, sliced ham, mushrooms, green peppers, red onions, black olives, beef, pork sausage and Italian sausage—all is well. Amadeo's makes them up to 26 inches across. The subs rate just as high. Toasted rolls, baked locally, are stuffed with your choice of meat (salami, ham, meatballs and so on), cheese and veggies. The meatballs are totally boss. Not too heavy with an almost silky texture, they come drowned in a spicy tomato sauce and smothered in mozzarella cheese. Closed Sunday.

All of the dishes at Ariana come with a hefty portion of white basmati rice dusted with tart, purple sumac powder (a shaker of which accessorizes each table). The dishes also all come with a green, mustardy chutney of cilantro and walnuts; a sauce that relies on housemade yogurt; a salad of diced tomato, cucumber and onion; and a slice of flatbread, which is baked twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Don’t go if you’re in a hurry. There could be a guy in front of you buying lamb tongues or pickled garlic heads that need to be fished out of the vat. When you order, much of the meal is made from scratch. But there’s no need to stay planted at your table while you wait—interesting grocery items like Bulgarian feta, organic Afghani figs, chickpea cookies and vats of grapeseed oil beg for your inspection.

A New Mexico tradition since 1952! For an award-winning (for both Best Burger and Best French Fries), quick 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 one is a model of efficiency and cleanliness. Why look any further? They’re easy to spot from afar—just keep an eye out for the giant Asian Uncle Sam sign. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

In a storefront at The Pavilions at San Mateo, right off of I-40, Bliss is a refreshingly charming sandwich spot with an emphasis on local ingredients and made-from-scratch everything. The green chile Philly makes excellent use of rib eye steak and Wagner Farms green chile. Vegetarians are well cared for with sandwiches like the “Jiminy's criminy” and a veggie burger with heavenly hummus. There are also giant breakfast burritos, soups, salads and daily specials.

Home of the ranchero burger and a screamin’ $2 Frito pie (which usually takes top honors in our restaurant polls), these burgers are similar to their Lotaburger or Its-a-Burger cousins, except they have loads of green or red chile on them. And Bob's offers "taco burgers"—burgers in taco shells instead of buns. Bob is quite the creative entrepreneur; it shows on the chile-stained faces of his fanatic followers.

It’s like the original Duran’s in Old Town, plus dinner, beer and wine, and chile rellenos. Don’t be stupid. Go to Duran’s, and do not leave without ordering something involving a fresh flour tortilla, preferably in combination with the Best Red Chile and Best Enchiladas in the city (according to our 2007 poll).

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 has 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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Grandpa’s Grill on Route 66 has a new home and a new name. Phil Chavez is offering up his familiar burgers, chicken, dogs, steaks and condiment bar at The Grill, down the block from Jennifer James 101 on Menaul. Crispy shoestring fries and the mesquite flavor of the grill give the “papa,” “mama” and “little rascal” burgers a nice lift. (Alibi Staff, September 1, 2011)

Salsa music greets you at the door and doesn't miss a beat as you cross the threshold. The Moros y Cristianos (beans and rice) are spectacular and richly flavored. Sides of maduros , or fried ripe plantains, are sweet and crispy. Pork cutlets ( masas de puerco ) are excellent and large, crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside, and served a wonderful mojo sauce. There’s a large selection of shakes. The mango shake is excellent, and the watermelon agua , made with fresh fruit, is like swimming in the iced heart of a perfectly ripe melon. The desserts are homemade, including pastelito de guayaba , a puff-pastry with guava paste inside, and a firm-bodied flan. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

A whole crew of hot air balloonists could split Hurricane's ginormous disaster burrito and still have leftovers to go around. Come back later for a typhoon burger (beef, bacon, cheese, grilled onions and Thousand Island dressing), a marvel of a mouthfeel—all those juicy toppings! It's a killer, especially with a giant order of curly fries. If you want the ground to crack beneath your feet, order the earthquake burger: two patties and double cheese. Wash it down with a lime Ricky or a luscious chocolate malt. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

I Scream Ice Cream

2000 Carlisle NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM

4.38 rating (22 votes)
Burque's newest retro-style ice cream shop is super kid-friendly with spill-indifferent concrete floors and tons of nostalgic fun for everyone. Kids are encouraged to adorn their ice cream with the help of "topping tokens," which they can pump into low-set gumball machines filled with fixings like crushed Oreos, Jelly Bellies and Fruity Pebbles. All 33 of the hard-packed flavors are made by Creamland right here in New Mexico. ISIC also serves up shakes, splits and other specialty treats to order, and most are between $1 and $5. Cheap!

In addition to some of the best NY-style crust, sauce and toppings in town, this family-run pizza joint houses arcade classics Centipede, Gauntlet and R-Type. J.J.'s also boasts hot, New Mexico-grown green chile (as it should), jumbo cheese ravioli for about six bucks, calzones, hot subs and buffalo thighs. Forget wings. These thighs are enormous and juicy. Plus, the recipe-makers have really put some love into their gluten-free crust. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Jennifer James and Nelle Bauer, along with a dedicated staff, have definitely set the bar high. A surprising location—in a Menaul strip mall—seems to suggest that JJ is separate from the Nob Hill gang in more than just geography. The menu is short and sweet: a smattering of primary and secondary courses followed by dessert, all of which change often to suit the available ingredients (reverently selected and prepared) and the chefs’ moods. While studying JJ’s offerings, a small bowl filled with ever-so-thin pickled cucumbers, along with crusty bread and a brilliant compound butter, gives a hint of what’s to come. Even the vegetarian dishes don’t treat herbivores as an afterthought. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Keva Juice won Best Smoothies on our Readers’ Choice Restaurant Poll every time we ran the category. Despite its corporate veneer, the Keva Juice company is actually based out of New Mexico--and we agree, the product is awesome. It has a dizzying menu of enormous fruity milkshakes (or “smoothies,” to some), all blended up with fruit, frozen yogurt, juice and/or sherbet. And, in some cases, Oreos. Yum.

We’ll be straightforward here: Go to Ko Palace because the food rocks and it has the best hot and sour soup in the city. Then check out the tchotchkes (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Kokoro Japanese Restaurant

5614 Menaul NE (Midtown)

Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.3 rating (32 votes)
Kokoro Japanese Restaurant is teeny-tiny in size with a menu succinctly pared down to a handful of quality home-style Japanese dishes—noodle soup (udon or soba), curry, donburi bowls, bento and a small sushi menu. The place is vegetarian/vegan-friendly with dishes like “just curry” (white rice with curry sauce and Japanese pickles), a wakame bowl of seaweed and noodles, and potato croquettes (tempura potato balls). Kokoro even includes complimentary and unlimited green tea, coffee or water with meals. If it’s all about the little things, then Kokoro delivers in a big way. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
