Kabab House

301 Cornell Dr SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
688-1503

5 rating (2 votes)
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. (Alibi Staff, February 20, 2014)

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 the pictures of kung fu heroes all over the walls or check out the action in the open kitchen. If you’ve got $10 and an empty stomach, Kai’s will take care of you. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This University area restaurant takes advantage of whatever natural law it is that makes college students and ramen noodles a perfect culinary pairing. The ramen bowls come in three basic broths: chicken, veggie and the iconic, milky tonkatsu, made from boiled pork bones. It’s delicious, bolstering stuff and offered at a great price. Also, check out the Japanese microbrews!

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, $15 will buy you a leg of lamb with salad, potatoes and bread. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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. Also, Perico’s 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 another option for the midnight munchies. The Pita Pit, an Ontario-based chain, has a mix-and-match pita sandwich menu and a modest but colorful dining room. To top it off, it’s open until 3 a.m. Greek, American and Middle Eastern options abound in meaty pocket sammies—wipe the drool off your textbook and refuel! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

3.91 rating (28 votes)
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. Not to mention the huge bar takes care of all your beer and cocktail needs.

Ranchers Club

1901 University Blvd NE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87102

Mon-Thurs: 5:30-9:30pm Fri-Sat: 5:30-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Dinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.15 rating (65 votes)
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—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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Rude Boy Cookies is Albuquerque’s dessert haven. Try a cookie warmed à la mode or two cookies with ice cream mashed between for a delicious ice cream sandwich. You can even customize it with Nutella, salted caramel, cinammon marshmallow fluff or mini chocolate chips. (Alibi Staff, October 8, 2015)

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 10pm on weeknights and 11pm on weekends. Don’t forget the espresso and cannoli! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Sahara Middle Eastern Eatery

2622 Central Ave SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 255-5400

Mon-Sat: 10:30am-9:30pm Sun: noon-7:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.58 rating (25 votes)
Sahara’s 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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Satellite Coffee

4.25 rating (4 votes)
Satellite serves up coffee (the Best Coffee, according to Best of Burque Restaurants polls) and tea, as well as burritos, sandwiches and pastries. This is a good choice if you’re hungry for a quick bite or need a gift for your beverage-loving friends: We recommend the too-cute travel mugs. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Talking Drums Restaurant

1606 Central Av. SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
792-3221
www.talkingdrumsabq.com
Tue-Thurs: 11am-8pm Fri-Sat: 11am-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

4.04 rating (10 votes)
The location still bears traces of its former life as a Chinese restaurant, but Talking Drums is devoted to the varied cuisine of Africa. One co-owner, Alex, mans the front and is always eager to explain the many exotic choices on the menu, from fufu to moin moin. The other, Toyin, works the kitchen to produce the authentic and tasty entrées themselves. Visit the in-house market for all of your West African and Carribbean shopping needs.

This place has awesome staff and a delicious menu featuring some of the most amazing island food this side of the Atlantic. Make up for never taking that Caribbean cruise by dropping in. (Alibi Staff, February 15, 2016)

Thai House

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Thai, Asian

3.72 rating (10 votes)
The University crowd has loved 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 and pick up an origami crane on your way out. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Tia B’s La Wafflería

3710 Campus Blvd NE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
492-2007
Mon-Sun: 8am-2pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
Cuisine: Diner

5 rating (1 vote)
The outdoor seating at Tia B’s is green and cool and feels more like Austin than Albuquerque. The menu at the Wafflería is obviously entirely waffle-centric, with a build-your-own concept that allows diners to choose batter options (including gluten-free rice, buckwheat and blue corn flour varieties), fruit or syrup toppings, bacon or sausage to bake inside and whipped cream if one so desires. There are also several varieties of savory waffles, including the majestic smoked salmon plate. (Alibi Staff, July 30, 2014)
