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.

Kabab House

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 forespecially the bone-in lamband staff is friendly and eager to guide you to the best parts of the menu. Watch out for the salted yogurt drink doogh, thoughWesterners might not be prepared for its grimace-inducing 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 pictures of kung fu heroes all over the walls or check out the action in the open kitchen.

Maurya’s decor is attention-grabbinghot-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)

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. Kids love gyros. It's a universal thing. We don't know what it's about.

Next time you’re in the UNM area and need some quick takeout, try the beef flauta plateshredded 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 sammieswipe 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)

Be forewarned: This is not an Americanized restaurantnot the food, presentation or service. This is an African joint through and through. Sometimes menu items aren't available, and sometimes the food takes a while to arrive. But when it finally gets to your table, you’re guaranteed an utterly authentic and delicious Kenyan meal.

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 serviceyou know, tuxedos and golden-domed plates and allbut 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 occasionslike 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.

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 louderdine in until 10 p.m. weeknights and 11 p.m. weekends. Don’t forget the espresso and cannoli! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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)

Sombrero’s Mexican Food and Hamburgers

Albuquerque NM

Mon-Sun 11am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Nearby Theater: SUB Theater (See Film Times)
Cuisine: Mexican, American

5 rating (1 vote)
It can be surprisingly difficult to find good Mexican food (not New Mexican) in the University area, but Sombrero’s seems poised to change that. Even better, not only does it feature mouth-wateringly authentic fare like carne asada tacos, but the menu has a surprsingly robust and inventive hamburger selection. If you find yourself overwhelmed with the choice between a Pancho Villa and a Zapata burger, you can always go for the Whole Hog. It has everything on it, from green chile to onion strings to bacon to blackberry jam. Yes, you read that right: blackberry jam. (Alibi Staff, February 20, 2014)

Cuisine: Asian

The younger, smaller sister of Street Food Asia, Street Food Market embraces its lunch counter size and emphasizes quick and tasty noodle dishes. There’s hardly a need for a menu here: Choose meat (or veggies), type of noodles and curry and you’ll be guzzling down a bowl of Asian deliciousness in about 10 minutes.

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.

Tia B’s La Waffleria

3710 Campus NE (University)
Albuquerque NM
492-2007
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
Cuisine: Diner

5 rating (1 vote)
Tia Betty Blue’s on San Mateo quickly established a reputation for itself due in part to its excellent sweet and savory waffles. So it’s no surprise that its new location plays to that strength. The menu at the Waffleria is entirely waffle-centric, with a build-your-own concept that allows a diner 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)
