Ayurvedic cuisine supposedly works with your body’s natural energies and constitution to create “soul” food that’s on a whole new plane. Winners of Best Vegetarian in our restaurant poll several years running, Annapurna’s food is satisfying but never heavy and, well, you just feel better after you eat there. Try Sunday brunch with spiced gluten-free, vegan pancakes and breakfast quinoa (but you’ll have to live without scrambled eggs, sorry). The shaded courtyard to the side of the restaurant is spectacular. Voted Best Vegetarian Restaurant for 2013. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Voted Best Greek in our Best of Burque Restaurants poll time and time again, Olympia is a good old Greek diner with tasty comfort food: delicious gyros, souvlaki, pita, spanakopita and roasted potatoes. Vegetarian options are plentiful and cheap, but if that’s not your bag, $11 will buy you a leg of lamb with salad, potatoes and bread. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

There’s only one thing that “R” U Cereal specializes in, and I bet you can guess what it is. The $5.99 all-you-can-eat cereal buffet features about 30 varieties of everyone’s favorite quick-and-easy breakfast—from Cocoa Puffs to Special K to Cap’n Crunch. Feel free to mix and match to your heart’s content. Then select a type of milk (skim for the healthy, chocolate for sugar fiends), a topping (strawberries, M&Ms, yogurt and many more) and settle in for a dose of Saturday morning nostalgia. Bring your own footie pajamas for the complete experience. (Alibi Staff, July 18, 2013)

Step back in time for old-fashioned diner food and atmosphere with a New Mexican twist (incarnate in the hot-and-spicy Frito pie). The real stars in this place, though, are the awesome frozen desserts. They run the gamut from mammoth banana splits to 99-cent teeny-weeny hot fudge sundaes. The milkshakes come in almost any flavor combination you can think of and are some of the creamiest, most lip-smacking concoctions around. Voted Best Milkshakes for 2013. (Alibi Staff, October 13, 2010)

Look beyond the marketing gimmick of the poor, sweaty guy asphyxiating on the Central median, face concealed behind a sequined Mexican wrestling mask. Either chow down inside the colorful restaurant (try the fresh peanut salsa and horchata ) or have items from its extensive menu delivered directly to your door. Sundays feature a spectacular display of tableside live mariachi music. (Be forewarned: If you know a little Spanish, your interactions with the staff will go much more smoothly.) Open ’til 11 p.m.!

Free delivery to UNM, downtown and Sunport. (Alibi Staff, April 10, 2013)


3.21 rating (8 votes)
Parked on Yale’s prime stretch of UNM territory, Bricklight Dive is tailor-made for the University crowd: a short, inexpensive menu of Italian “street food” (lots of bread-based snacks with toppings; some nice, filling salads) and local beers for just a few bucks. The people-watching on the patio is excellent, if you can can get a spot. From the same folks behind Q/bRgR in Downtown. (Alibi Staff, August 23, 2011)

Brickyard Pizza

Brickyard Pizza is known for fast slices and beers on the cheap. It's the only full bar directly across from UNM, making it the prime watering hole for your post-theater and post- or pre-class needs. It also sometimes has live music and, usually, more televised sports than you can handle. The best thing about Brickyard, though, is that it's also the only noncorporate pizza establishment with late-night delivery (until 2:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday and until 1:30 a.m. all other nights) in Burque, which satiates an otherwise unfortunate void. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Carraro's Pizza and Italian Restaurant & Joe’s Place

Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.27 rating (22 votes)
In the front, it's a standard restaurant laid out with a small bar and big window facing the street. Travel a short way through a blacklit hall and enter the kind of divey neighborhood hangout this city needs more of, complete with TVs, a jukebox, a ping-pong table, air hockey and arcade games. Though the entire menu is available no matter where you choose to spend your time, you can't go wrong with the twisty-crust pizza. Caroline the bartender makes the meanest Lemondrops and non-blended Margaritas around. Suck back one of her Bloody Marys, too, which she makes extra spicy with Sriracha rooster sauce.

Chillz Frozen Custard

2720 Central Ave SE (University)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 265-5648
Mon-Sat: 11am-10pm Sun: noon-8pm (hours can change without notice)

4.89 rating (10 votes)
Winner of Best Frozen Desserts in our 2010 Best of Burque Restaurants poll. One of the best reasons to celebrate our long, hot summers, Chillz’ creamy custard is only made better with the addition of crunch, fruit and syrups. Sometimes brain freeze is a good thing. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

We still miss Jack’s, but its copper-ceilinged replacement has been around long enough to become an institution itself. The rambly old building has plenty of dark corners to hide in as you make your way through the extensive beer menu, and if the weather’s nice, an inviting patio area to scarf down a brick-oven cooked pizza in the fresh Spring breeze. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

The Cube BBQ

1520 Central Ave SE (University)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 243-0023
www.thecuberestaurant.com
Tues-Sat: 11am-10pm Sun: 11am-8pm Closed Monday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.65 rating (66 votes)
While The Cube’s presentation is upscale, the portions you’ll get are of standard barbecue proportions, unlikely to send you home hungry. Ribs, chicken, brisket, links and pulled pork are hickory-wood-smoked and prepared with a spice rub (“dry”) or drenched in tangy, smoky, sweet, acidic sauce (“wet”). Both versions are excellent. Hot dog lovers will have plenty to chew on with Chicago dogs, bacon-wrapped Guadalajara dogs and 505 dogs (bacon, avocado and green chile). And with mapley candied yams, mac and cheese and skin-on fries, the sides at The Cube are hardly side notes. To wash down your meal, there’s a wine and beer list and a hefty menu of house-made mousses, pies and muffins for dessert. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

DG’s Deli

1418 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. NE (University)

4.15 rating (13 votes)
DG’s serves inexpensive, satisfying hot and cold sandwiches in a quiet West University neighborhood. The possibilities for a customized ’wich are endless, whether you’re after a six-inch snack or a two-foot torpedo. Pickle spears are free, but you’ve got to ask for them.

Donut Mart

1723 Lomas NE (University)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 247-9022
Cuisine: Bakery/Sweets

No Votes Yet!
Donut Mart is the home of our new favorite, the “golden coconut” cake doughnut. This circle of goodness melts in your mouth, and its toasty coconut coating adds a delightful crunch. The custard-filled Boston cream wins points with tasters, too. The PB & J and buttermilk cake are also popular. (Alibi Staff, October 13, 2011)

El Patio

142 Harvard SE (University)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 268-4245

Mon-Sun: 11am-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: New Mexican

3.61 rating (31 votes)
A can’t-miss New Mexican spot steeped in lived-in UNM area charm. There are amazing beans, potatoes and, of course, the patio. And some really tasty green chile chicken enchiladas. And live guitar music. And, yum. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Frontier won Alibi awards last year for Best Value, Late Night, Carne Adovada, Tortillas, Green Chile and Breakfast Burritos. Frontier is pretty much the one restaurant most folks in Albuquerque can agree on. Though we may complain about the crowds, the escalating prices and the lack of real butter, we go back again and again. The food is always perfectly, consistently delicious. Breakfast burritos, sweet rolls, huevos rancheros, green chile stew, fresh-squeezed orange juice: it’s all great. The ambience is strictly cafeteria plus tons of John Wayne art. Don’t miss this place, whatever you do. Now open until 1 a.m. every night. Sorry. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Golden Pride BBQ, Chicken & Ribs

3.18 rating (11 votes)
Yes, Golden Pride is technically a fried chicken joint, but it also serves fantastic barbecue and the best damn portable burritos in town. Drive through and order a flock of wings, a rack of ribs and a passel of No. 9 breakfast burritos (with bacon!). It’s all good with beer, by the way.

Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.34 rating (17 votes)
Gyros is a modern-looking Greek place. None of that cheesy wall-to-wall blue and white paint or brimming flower pots here. Instead, Gyros opts for a kind of metallic sheen. Luckily, the food is just as reasonably priced as the next Greek joint. The souvlaki and gyros are good, but be sure to try the lemon rice and the honey-soaked baklava. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Kai's Chinese Restaurant

138 Harvard Dr SE (University)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 266-8388
Mon-Fri: 11am-9pm Sat: 12pm-9pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
Cuisine: Chinese

3.76 rating (30 votes)
So many reasons why we love Kai’s: It’s cheap even by cheapskate standards. The service is friendly, and the food comes out in a flash. It’s close to the university, and there’s parking in the back. If you’re bored, you can either look at pictures of kung fu heroes all over the walls or check out the action in the open kitchen. Voted Best Chinese for 2013. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Maurya Cuisine of India

110 Yale SE (University)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 268-5327

Meals Served: LunchDinner

3.3 rating (20 votes)
Maurya’s decor is attention-grabbing—hot-orange walls, billowing curtains, shining silver mirrors, glittering tapestries and a gorgeous, bejeweled orb lamp in the middle of the dining room. And the food is equally resplendent. When vegetarians sleep, they’d do well to dream of sabz-e-bahar’s savory stewed vegetables in a spicy tomato-and-onion sauce, or the thick, creamy chana dal (lentil) soup, fragrant with fresh cilantro and ginger. Chicken makhani translates as “butter chicken,” and it lives up to the comparison. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
