Albuquerque - Midtown

Little Anita's

2000 Menaul Boulevard NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 837-9459‎
Cuisine: New Mexican

1.4 rating (5 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. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Mac’s Steak in the Rough

4515 Menaul NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 888-3611
10:30am-9pm every day (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

3.4 rating (15 votes)
The last of its kind and re-opened after an extensive remodel; all the other Mac’s locations have quietly shut down over the years. Maybe it’s because each greasy, paper-lined basket is a heart attack waiting to happen—but at least we’re dying happy. Fried strips of steak, white rolls or Texas toast, and thick, creamy shakes are the hidden crown jewels of the establishment. Just be sure to call before heading over, because the hours change without notice. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Padilla’s Mexican Kitchen

1510 Girard NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 262-0115
Mon-Sat: 11am-8:00pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: New Mexican

4.04 rating (28 votes)
Proud and loyal patrons of this neighborhood New Mexican spot swear by the meaty red chile, especially when poured all over the stacked blue corn enchiladas. If you’re in a reasonably secure relationship, you’ll order yours with onions and a fried egg on top. Open for weekday lunch and dinner. Cash only! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Pho 79

2007 Candelaria Rd NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM 87107
Mon-Tue, Sun 10am - 8pm Wed-Thu 10am-9pm Fri-Sat 10am-9:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Nearby Theater: Century Rio (See Film Times)
Cuisine: Vietnamese

5 rating (1 vote)
This is a no-frills kind of place, but if you like Vietnamese food and don’t particularly care about atmosphere, you should definitely seek it out. The pho is bolstering and wholesome and the beef tendon is spectacular. From time to time, they’ve even been known to fly in mass quantities of crawfish for your tail eating, head sucking pleasure.

Pho Nguyen

7202 Menaul NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM 87110
(505) 830-6554
Mon-Sat: 10:30am-9pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Vietnamese, Asian

4.83 rating (83 votes)
Pho Nguyen (if you're a Vietnamese pronunciation newbie, say "Fun Win"), located in the same strip mall storefront once occupied by the casual Japanese eatery California Witches, is among the newer pho spots to join the pack. The environment is comfortable, the savory crêpes are tasty and a recent herby salad of crisp lotus stems, daikon radish, sliced carrot and sliced shrimp was refreshing and very good.

Richard’s Mexican Restaurant

3301 Menaul NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM 87107
(505) 881-1039
Mon-Sat: 8am-3:30pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch
Nearby Theater: Movies 8 (See Film Times)

4.55 rating (21 votes)
Ever had vegetarian posole? The menu at Richard’s features traditional plates like green chile chicken enchiladas and tostadas compuestas, but also offers healthier, low-fat and vegetarian fare. And, believe it or not, the light plates are scrumptious. Be sure to order some fideo (tasty marinated noodles) on the side. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Rudy’s “Country Store” and Bar-B-Q

2321 Carlisle Blvd NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 884-4000
Mon-Sun: 10am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner

4.39 rating (28 votes)
The pulled pork at Rudy’s makes us drool like dogs under the dinner table. Heaped up between two slices of pillowy white bread and kissed with sauce, the beef and pork ribs are absolute hog heaven. Rudy’s dining room takes “spartan” to a new level, but as the weather improves, so does our opinion of sitting out on their covered patio. Now serving breakfast tacos with your choice of Rudy’s justifiably famous meats. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Saratori’s di Tully

1425 San Mateo NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM 87110
(505) 268-2627
Tues-Sat: 9am-5:30pm Closed Sunday & Monday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

2.77 rating (43 votes)
Combining his daughters’ names—Sara and Tori—Tully’s owner Johnny Camuglia came up with Saratori’s, then put to use a wealth of family Italian baking recipes. Limone farfalla (crumbly lemon bows), buccellati biscotto (rolled cookies filled with figs), buttery, shell-shaped sfogliatelle with hundreds of flaky ripples and an orange rind-and-ricotta cheese center, and albicocca biscotti (apricot-stuffed biscuits) are just some of the goodies to be found in Camuglia's cases. All are delicious. Next time you stop by Tully’s for lunch, make sure to drop by the bakery for dessert. Just grab a cup of joe and some biscotti, and settle into an overstuffed chair. Closed Sundays and Mondays. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Taj Mahal

1430 Carlisle NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM 87110
(505) 255-1994
Lunch: Mon-Sun: 11am-2:30pm Dinner: Sun-Thurs: 5-9:30pm Fri-Sat: 5-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.3 rating (45 votes)
Taj Mahal usually wins Best Indian and Best Lunch Buffet in our Best of Burque Restaurants polls, no doubt for its amazing lunch buffet, or at least for bathing its chicken in a fiery red tabasco-like sauce that’s good and sweat-inducing. Wash it down with not-too-sweet hot chai, which is frequently replenished at no extra cost by the attentive service. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Tully’s Italian Deli

1425 San Mateo NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 255-5370
Mon-Fri 9 am-5:30 pm Sat 9 am-5 pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

4 rating (19 votes)
This small Italian delicatessen is jam-packed with enough imported and domestic meats, cheeses and specialty items to turn any kitchen into an authentic cucina Italiana. Step over to the lunch counter for a quick Italian snack made with ingredients you know are top-notch. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Viet Taste

5721 Menaul Blvd NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM 87110
(505) 888-0101
Mon-Sat: 10am-9pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Vietnamese, Asian

2.98 rating (79 votes)
Who doesn’t like a hot, inexpensive, filling bowl of pho? Or a tank of sweet-and-sour soup with catfish? We don’t know people like that, and neither should you. Having a light lunch of a papaya salad with shrimp and an avocado shake is just the thing to shake off days of stress and too many cheeseburgers. And since nothing on the menu costs over 10 bucks, you can treat your lazy, good-for-nothing co-workers to lunch. Just don’t call them names to their faces. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
