Winners of Best Dish Covered in Gravy, Best Chicken-Fried Steak, Best Milkshake/Malt, Best Diner and Best American in recent polls. 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. (Alibi Staff, October 13, 2010)

Ayurvedic cuisine supposedly works with your body’s natural energies and constitution to create “soul” food that’s on a whole new plane.

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.

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. (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.

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)

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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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)

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.

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 (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Not your ordinary cafe, this quaint little joint tends to attract acclectic folks who want to thumb through the extensive book collection in the front of the store or lounge with a laptop in the back. The staff are well-versed in coffee bean language, offering smooth cold brews, steamy espresso and the freshest house brew in town. The cafe also serves breakfast until 11am every morning so for all you early birds, make sure to try the smothered breakfast burrito. (Alibi Staff, February 6, 2014)

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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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.

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.
