Albuquerque - University

66 Diner

1405 Central Ave SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 247-1421
www.66diner.com
Mon-Fri: 11am-11pm Sat: 8am-11pm Sun: 8am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinnerOpen Late
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 66 Diner dishes up yummy burgers and fries, breakfast plates and daily specials like chicken pot pie with cream gravy or crispy-fried po’ boys. 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.

Annapurna’s World Vegetarian Café

2201 Silver Ave SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 262-2424

Mon-Sat: 7am-9pm Sun: 9am-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinner
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.

Bandido Hideout

Sun 8am-9pm Mon-Thu 8am-10pm Fri-Sat 8am-11pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
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 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays!

Brickyard Pizza

2216 Central Ave SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 262-2216
www.brickyardpizza.com
Mon-Sat: 11am-1:30am Sun: 11:am-11:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
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 2:30am on Friday and Saturday and until 1:30am all other nights) in Burque, which satiates an otherwise unfortunate void.

Carraro's Pizza & Joe’s Place

108 Vassar Dr SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 268-2300

Mon-Fri: 11:30am-2am Sat: 2pm-2am Sun: 2pm-midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
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.

Mon-Sat 11am - 2am Sun closed (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
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.

You can get your "canvas" covered in any number of gourmet toppings, from ricotta cheese to roasted red potatoes. Or get your pie festooned in pepperoni. It’s great any way you slice it.

Dion’s Pizza

1600 Towne Center Ln SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106

www.Dions.com
Sun-Thurs 10:30am to 10:00pm Friday-Sat 10:30am to 11:00pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Besides having the Best Pizza, according to past Best of Burque Restaurants polls, Dion's also has a wonderful selection of salads (particularly the Greek or any of the “gourmet” salads with fresh greens) and sandwiches (the pastrami is especially good). The pizza is made fresh and you can see them rolling and tossing the dough. Dine in or order takeout.

Duggan’s Coffee

2227 Lead Ave SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
312-7257
dugganscoffee.com
Tue-Sat: 7am-2pm (hours can change without notice)
Nearby Theater: SUB Theater (See Film Times)
An upstart contender in the crowded UNM coffee-shop scene, this small, well-appointed space is great for cramming before finals or scarfing down a quick breakfast before school or a salad and a sandwich for lunch. So far, the main drawback seems to be that its location—wedged between a laundromat and a piñata store—is just about impossible to find. Fortunately, a new sign helps solve that problem.

El Patio de Albuquerque

Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 268-4245
www.elpatiodealbuquerque.com
Mon-Sat: 8am-9pm Sun: 11am-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
Cuisine: New Mexican
A can’t-miss New Mexican spot steeped in lived-in UNM area charm. There are amazing beans, potatoes and, of course, sopaipillas. And some really tasty green chile chicken enchiladas, all of which are complemented by a cerveza or a wine cocktail. And live guitar music. And a cool patio on which to take the evening air. If there’s Frito pie on the specials board, get it.

Mon-Sun: 5am-1am (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
Frontier is an Albuquerque staple that most folks can agree on. Breakfast burritos, sweet rolls, huevos rancheros, green chile stew, shakes, fresh-squeezed orange juice—it’s all great. The ambience is strictly cafeteria plus plenty of interesting characters to talk to after a late-night study session.

Mon-Sun: 6am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
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!).

Gyros Mediterranean

106 Cornell Dr SE Ste A (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 255-4401
egyros.com
Mon-Fri: 11am-10pm Sat: 11:30am-10pm Sun: noon-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
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 kota reganato and the honey-soaked baklava.

Mon-Fri: 6am-7pm Sat-Sun: 7am-2pm (hours can change without notice)
Stop by this neighborhood joint for excellent espresso-based concoctions and locally-roasted beans. There are a variety of baked goods on hand (mostly) from New Mexico Pie Company. Make sure to try the avocado toast, lavender donuts, local pop-tarts and coffee with a splash of magically delicious coconut milk.

Kabab House

301 Cornell Dr SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
312-8949
Nearby Theater: SUB Theater (See Film Times)
Don’t let the tacky Bud Light signs fool you (or the fact that the restaurant’s name is spelled three different ways on them). This cozy little cafe serves up some great and authentic Persian food. The titular kabobs are as good as you could hope for—especially the bone-in lamb—and the staff is friendly and eager to guide you to the best parts of the menu. Watch out for the salted yogurt drink doogh, though—Westerners might not be prepared for its pungency.
