3.57 rating (21 votes)
Sushi King is a small, hip, casual spot located a few doors up from the Century 14 Downtown movie theater. They serve fresh nigiri, sashimi and sushi rolls, plus an interesting assortment of seafood salads and noodle dishes. We love the variety and convenience this place offers when you’ve got a case of the Downtown ho-hums. They’ve also got excellent sake, so be sure to split a bottle with your sushi chef.

Thai Crystal

109 Gold SW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 244-3344

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Thai, Asian

3.24 rating (25 votes)
Located on the back side of the Century 14 Downtown theater complex, Thai Crystal is an obvious choice for a dinner-and-a-movie date. Our favorite dishes include big noodles with soy sauce (which sounds less exciting than it is) and the wide array of soups that arrive in a tall, steaming pot. Then cool yourself down with a Thai iced tea. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Weck’s, oh Weck’s, where have you been? Or, rather, where have we been? Until recently, we had not discovered your bottomless drinks, your enormous coffee cakes and your sausage and bacon gravy? How we long to return for another “bowl o’ stuff” filled with hash browns, carne adovada, red chile and an over-easy egg. How we dream at night of your belly-bustin’ biscuits and gravy. How stupid we were to have ignored you for so long!

Albuquerque - Fairgrounds

Café Da Lat

5615 Central Ave NE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM

Mon-Sat: 10:30am-9pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Vietnamese, Asian

3.07 rating (67 votes)
Consistently one of the best Vietnamese joints in town and one of the few spots that whip up durian-fruit shakes. Da Lat does a magnificent breaded frog leg appetizer. The crispy golden legs are scrumptious dipped in Da Lat's salty, tangy nuoc cham sauce. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Christy Mae's

If your grandma's like ours, she's not one for fancy meals with odd ingredients or avant-garde decor. Instead, she'll be after good ingredients and impeccable service. That's where Christy Mae's comes in, winners of Best Restaurant to Take Grandma in our poll. Owned by the Tricarico family, recipes cooked from scratch, in-house baking, hearty soups and beautiful chicken pot pies promise to please your granny and anyone else looking for a down-home atmosphere and good portions at reasonable prices. Now serving breakfast 7 to 10:30 a.m. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Named for a love song that is considered to be the unofficial national anthem of Mexico. (Alibi Staff, April 10, 2013)

El Chicken

6200 Central Ave SE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM
980-8340

2 rating (6 votes)
Perhaps the least mobile food truck around, El Chicken roosts at the corner of San Pedro and Central, dishing out Mexican grilled pollo and carnitas to all comers. A basic grasp of Spanish is helpful, though not strictly necessary, and don’t even bother pulling out a credit card. (Alibi Staff, July 18, 2013)

Pepper’s Ole Fashion BBQ

303 San Pedro NE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 967-6427
TUES-SAT: 11am-7pm SUN:1 pm-7pm CLOSED MONDAYS! (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

2.79 rating (41 votes)
Proprietor Daniel “Pepper” Morgan has an impressive résumé. More importantly, he learned to cook from his grandmother, who taught him the recipe for her barbecue sauce (tangy, smoky and practically drinkable) and passed on to him the soul of soul food. All of the barbecue at Pepper’s is spectacular. After hours of “mopping and basting” with sauce in the smoker—which burns hickory, applewood and mesquite—turkey legs, chopped brisket, chicken, rubbed ribs and sausage develop a glossy, sweet coating. Once a week, the menu is augmented by “Soul Food Saturday” specials, including oxtails and neck bones smothered in gravy and chitterlings. On the side, good luck choosing between garlicky mac ’n’ cheese, molten-hot fried okra, collard greens with smoked turkey, and sweet potato corn bread. Closed Sunday. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Weck’s, oh Weck’s, how we yearn for your bottomless drinks, your enormous coffee cakes and your hangover-killing, sausage-and-bacon gravy. How we long to return for another “bowl o’ stuff” filled with hash browns, carne adovada, red chile and an over-easy egg. How we dream at night of your belly-bustin’ “freedom toast”!

Albuquerque - Far Northeast Heights

The Barley Room

5200 Eubank NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 332-0800

Mon-Sat: 11am-2am Sun: 11am-midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: High Ridge (See Film Times)

4.3 rating (25 votes)
The Barley Room is a watering hole in the far Northeast Heights that fills patrons up with live music, lots of libations and a surprisingly ample menu. Snack on bar-friendly fried things (say yes to the sweet potato fries!), or have a proper meal with burgers, salads, pasta, New Mexican dishes and a few grilled meat and fish entrées. There’s a palpable sports bar feel to the place, but a diverse clientele keeps this bar/grill comfortable for just about everyone. The kitchen stays open until midnight every night; go ahead and linger. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

China Luck

7900 San Pedro Dr NE Ste A1 (Far Northeast Heights)

Mon-Fri: 11am-8:45pm Sat: 11:30am-8:45pm Sun: 11:30am-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Chinese, Sushi

3.22 rating (9 votes)
There’s not a whole heck of a lot to eat this far north in the city, so Far Northeast Heights dwellers are happy this clean, reliable Chinese joint set up in their neck of the woods. Serene earth tones and tasteful lighting set the tone. On the table, sesame chicken displays perfectly fried breading that’s crisp without being greasy and is generously sauced with sweet and savory soy notes. Wash those heavier fried foods down with a light, crisp Chinese beer. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Five Star Burgers

5901 Wyoming Blvd NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 821-1909

Sunday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.29 rating (8 votes)
Freshly ground meat is served on grilled Fano Bakery brioche buns, flanked by condiments like green chile mayo and red pepper aioli. The browned, freshly ground turkey burger is a total masterstroke, one that explodes in the mouth and hits a high-water mark for juiciness. (A cranberry chutney takes the pork-like flavor even further). A housemade veggie patty tastes like fancy hash browns, and a lamb burger’s assertive flavor is harnessed beautifully by a garlicky tzatziki sauce. It’s not all burgers, either: The full-size salads practically come in boats here, and the beer is local. (Alibi Staff, July 12, 2011)

Winner of Best Casual Dining, Best Veggie Burger, Best Toast, Best Healthy Breakfast and Best Desserts in our restaurant polls. Sure, you go in thinking you’ll be good and get a skinny latte, scrambled egg whites and a side of turkey and green chile sausage, but five minutes later somebody’s saying “apple pie with ice cream” and the voice is coming from your mouth. Give in. It tastes good. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Winner of Best Casual Dining, Best Veggie Burger, Best Toast, Best Healthy Breakfast and Best Desserts in our 2008 restaurant poll. Sure, you go in thinking you’ll be good and get a skinny latte, scrambled egg whites and a side of turkey and green chile sausage, but five minutes later somebody’s saying “apple pie with ice cream” and the voice is coming from your mouth.

3.71 rating (27 votes)
Il Vicino’s thin-crusted, gourmet-topped pizzas are perennial favorites among Alibi readers, but the big salads are equally popular. Order at the register and a server brings the food to your table, making weekday lunches speedy. The open kitchen gives you something to stare at while you wait. Stop in for a quick lunch or a late afternoon microbrew at one of the patio tables. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Jade Chinese Restaurant

8001 Wyoming NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 822-8802
Mon-Thurs: 11am-8:30pm Fri-Sat: 11am-9pm Sun: 4:30-8:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Cuisine: Chinese

4.07 rating (15 votes)
Jade is 90 percent identical to any of the dozens of Chinese restaurants in town, but come for that other 10 percent--the little things Jade does better than all the rest. Take the barbecued spare ribs for example. At Jade, the barbecue sauce is sharper, spicier and with a hint of cherry flavor, and it’s just the first in a series of pleasant little surprises. The wonton soup tastes like it came from a stock and not just an overly salted broth. The sesame chicken is breaded Japanese-style instead of being heavily battered, and the duck is served in fat little chunks which are tender and pan-fried with the skin still on. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Jinja Bar & Bistro

8900 Holly NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 856-1413

Mon-Fri: 11am-10pm Sat-Sun: 11:30am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Asian

3.6 rating (6 votes)
This Asian-American eatery has a reputation for retro Pacific Rim decor and the clink of drinks with little umbrellas in them. If you're in the mood for East-meets-West fare like lettuce wraps, quaking beef or Tokyo crispy tofu, then load up the Prius and take a drive down Paseo del Norte. You’ll also find a large selection of fine loose teas and more liquor than you can shake a limbo stick at. Have a yen for wine? Here it comes in white, red and plum. (Alibi Staff, October 10, 2012)

Mr. Tokyo Japanese Restaurant

11200 Montgomery NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Suite 44
Albuquerque NM
(505) 292-4728
Lunch: Mon-Sat: 11:30am-2:30pm Dinner: Mon-Sat: 5-9pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Japanese, Sushi, Asian

4.25 rating (12 votes)
Since we’re long past the point when sushi was considered too exotic for New Mexico, it’s time to start paying attention to other fine Japanese favorites like tempura, hibachi-grilled meats and seafood, teriyaki without the La Choy, and the beauty of udon noodles. Mr. Tokyo is modestly sized, moderately priced, and an excellent place for a quick, relaxing lunch or a quiet dinner with friends and family. They have mostly repeat customers because they’re just so darn good, and the owner’s pint-sized daughter, Shyana, will even wipe off half your table for you (give her a break, she’s still a shortie). (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Nantucket Shoals Seafood Market

5415 Academy NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 821-5787
Tue-Sat 10am-6pm Sunday & Monday (hours can change without notice)
Nearby Theater: Movies 8 (See Film Times)

3.24 rating (41 votes)
Nantucket Shoals is just down the road from Whole Foods but often stocks items that the big store's seafood department does not. Call or stop in for fresh fish, soft shell crabs, roe, compound butters and more. Ask about the house-made fish stock. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
