Next time you’re in the UNM area and need some quick takeout, try the beef flauta plate—shredded beef rolled in corn tortillas then deep-fried. It comes with sour cream and guacamole, a rice-bean-cheese combo and a little salad with delicious mystery dressing. And the cooks always put forks, spoons, knives, napkins and salsa in your bag without making you ask. Also, Pericos has more than 20 burrito combinations that, for a few pennies more, can be fried into a chimichanga. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Late-night UNM goers, you now have a healthy option for the midnight munchies. The Pita Pit, an Ontario-based chain, has filled the old “Pig and Calf” laundromat across from UNM with a 20-plus, mix-and-match pita sandwich menu and a modest but colorful dining room. To top it off, they're open until 3 a.m. and they deliver (also until 3 a.m.). Greek, American and Middle Eastern options abound in meaty and vegetarian pocket sammies—wipe the drool off your textbook and refuel! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

You’ll probably have to battle full parking lots and at least a moderate wait, but these delays, annoying as they may be, are one of the best “reviews” a restaurant could hope for. Inside, the dim lighting and rustic décor easily fade away when an enormous pile of tender, saucy meat appears before you. The almost heat-free sauce is tangy and sweet but mellow enough to go down nice and easy without a pucker. Friends of the sausage will love the hot links; well-spiced and smoky dogs with a delightful snap. A huge bar takes care of all your beer and cocktail needs. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Ranchers Club is arguably the city’s fanciest restaurant, where fine steaks and seafood are king. Certainly it has the dining room with the most formal service—you know, tuxedos and golden-domed plates and all—but with live music and expertly crafted cocktails, the resplendent bar is also worth your time. This is the place we like to go for really special occasions—like when someone else is paying or when we want to break a hunger strike. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Do not leave The Range without ordering something involving bacon and queso even if it means you have to get side dishes of them both. These people serve thick, meaty bacon and obviously understand the power of the dreamy, cheesy goop we call queso to transform simple breakfast items from ho-hum to hot damn! They’ve even rescued the humble bowl of oatmeal from perpetual breakfast boredom by parking a scoop of their fabulous house-made cinnamon ice cream on top of it. Voted Best Huevos Rancheros for 2013.

Saggios

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.05 rating (41 votes)
Saggios serves up some of the biggest slices in town. Dotted with fat slices of sausage and loads of gooey cheese, it’s one of our top favorite ’za destinations. The crust is moderately thin, but the edges are puffed and crunchy, just like we like ’em. Even though it can be loud, the trompe l’oeil murals are even louder—dine in until 10 p.m. weeknights and 11 p.m. weekends. Don’t forget the espresso and cannoli! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Sahara Middle Eastern Eatery

Meals Served: LunchDinner

3.55 rating (21 votes)
Sahara serves various Middle Eastern dishes in a brightly painted restaurant accented by camels. The menu is straightforward, listing expected meats and purées and several vegetarian dishes. Meats come either in a sandwich or combo platter, which are loaded with enough sides to appease the most voracious appetites. The falafel totally rocks the Casbah, as do the chicken dishes, the velvety hummus and the beautifully composed salads. Don’t forget to get a nice, hot cup of spice-infused tea.

Satellite serves up not only coffee but also burritos, quiches, desserts and pastries. This is a good choice if you’re hungry late. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Tammy Oberst and husband Barclay Thompson are familiar to folks in UNM’s Science and Technology Park, near the University sports complex. They’ve made a small business of excellent pastries and lunchtime fare for the past two years. There’s also breakfast, burgers, soups, New Mexican plates and lots of surprising specials.

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Thai, Asian

3.69 rating (9 votes)
The university crowd has been patronizing Thai House for years, and with good reason. For those living in the student ghetto, the location is ideal, and the extensive, vegetarian-friendly menu is usually supplemented with delicious specials. Go for the spicy white fish in a hot, red curry sauce. On your way out, pick up an origami crane or another Asian knickknack to add to your collection.

Chicago natives Jim and Elizabeth Walker serve up different flavors every day, some familiar and some unique, like chocolate, cinnamon-sugar, toffee with nuts, tangerine and caramel. Customers can even choose their flavors and have their popcorn tossed to order. All of the corn is air-popped. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The owners dropped the "R.B." a while back, but Winning Coffee continues to be a University staple. In addition to delish java, this comfy joint offers a full breakfast menu including eggs, quiches, breakfast burritos and bagels. It also has a fairly extensive lunch menu consisting of salads, soups and sandwiches. In the evening, Winning offers just coffee and pastries. The coffeehouse presents monthly art exhibits and recently added all-ages rock shows; so it’s a favorite hangout of poetry groups, musicians, students and other scruffy neighborhood regulars. The joe and grub are reasonably priced. The people-watching is 100 percent free. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

If you live in the west University area and are bored to tears by salad bars and onion rings, this is the place for you. Vibrant salads and a variety of little pickles accompany gorgeous Middle Eastern platters brimming with spiced, all-natural meats. The Jerusalem salad’s tomato, cucumber and tahini combination is bright and flavorful; perfect with the homemade pita and hummus. Chicken lovers will rejoice in the kabobs, which are tender and delicious.

Can delivery pizza be elevated to a work of art? The respondents to 2007’s Best of Burque Restaurants poll sure seem to think so—DaVinci’s was voted No. 1 in the Best Comfort Food and Best Undiscovered Gem categories. 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.

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 the trek to school. 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. Our suggestion to the owners: invest in a large, eye-catching sign. (Alibi Staff, February 13, 2014)

Is it a coffee shop that also serves as a club house for local Indie filmmakers? Or a is it a club house for local Indie filmmakers that also serves coffee? It’s hard to say, but it’s certainly an interesting concept. Even if the atmosphere reminds you of hanging out in an office break room, the coffee is good and the owner whips up a mean plate of huevos rancheros with great super-hot chile. And if you’ve ever wanted to be plugged into the local filmmaker scene, hanging out here is probably a great first step. (Alibi Staff, February 6, 2014)
