and stuffed sopaipillas. The red chile is generally milder than their green but is seasoned just right. Consistency, generous portions and fair prices make Little Anita's an Albuquerque mainstay—not to mention its many locations ranging from full-service dining to quick and easy take-out counters. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The indoor dining space is tiny, but the rambling breezeway and courtyard at this EDo café offer a refreshingly peaceful setting for enjoying the Albuquerque weather in the company of some great New Mexican food. Lunchtime fare includes sandwiches and paninis, rounded out with a full roster of espresso drinks. (Alibi Staff, March 6, 2014)

This homey New Mexican joint is popular, and though it’s much bigger inside than you can tell from the street, regulars pack the place tighter than a tamale. Barelas is known for huevos rancheros, and they are tasty here, slathered in particularly good red chile and served on a fresh flour tortilla. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Café Lush is like a daydream of the way things might be in some future hybrid of Europe and Albuquerque. It’s an urban café on a quiet street corner, with a small menu of simple, yet well-crafted, dishes and a pledge to use local, seasonal and organic ingredients whenever possible. But unlike in Europe, the red and green chile won’t disappoint. (Alibi Staff, November 17, 2011)

Cecilia’s Café

Cecilia is the matriarch of one of Albuquerque’s best breakfast burritos and red chile. Clinging close to the heart of Downtown on Sixth Street and Silver, Cecilia makes the food herself in the kitchen. The red chile is no joke, and the prices are pretty friggin’ cheap too.

If it’s salt-of-the-earth, tried-and-true New Mexican favorites you’re after, hit up a Garcia’s in your area. It has daily specials, breakfast anytime and even a "gringo menu" that’ll fill you up without depleting your wallet. The huevos rancheros with green chile will leave you licking the plate and contemplating seconds. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

We like Lindy’s for their retro-ish décor, Downtown convenience and $5 pitchers of beer. The food here is pretty typical diner fare with a good amount of New Mexican and Greek specialties thrown into the mix, served in hefty portions.

Fantastic take on New Mexican cuisine featuring flaming hot, savory chile, melt-in-your-mouth chicharrones and a sleeper hit huevos rancheros that is actually one of the best in the city. The burritos and platters are hefty and will fuel a working man all day long. As the name of the place indicates, this family-operated restaurant got its start producing excellent carne seca (and still does) but has branched out into an efficiently-run New Mexican kitchen. Dishes are served on paper and styrofoam, but the service is polite and attentive, and the quality of the food is always perfecto. The most unusual ingredient in burrito or sandwich form here is the “old fashioned” fried bologna, which is far more delicious than you probably think and served, like everything else, with lots of chile. Give it a try! (Alibi Staff, September 30, 2015)

A tiny house on the northern cusp of Downtown is home to this New Mexican eatery. Papa Frank’s specializes in authentic food for the to-go crowd, so expect styrofoam and plastic ware beneath your enchiladas. The red chile is fresh-made daily and packs a flavorful punch.

Plaza Eatery

1 One Civic Plaza NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 768-3539
Mon-Fri: 7am-4pm Closed Saturday & Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

3.27 rating (15 votes)
Plaza Eatery, steps away from Civic Plaza, is an ideal location to eat lunch and spot your local elected government officials, whether it be city councilors or the mayor himself. With some of the lowest prices Downtown and a large menu of tasty American, Greek and New Mexican lunch specials, and lots of fresh baked goods, Plaza Eatery is one of Downtown’s best-kept secrets. Try a chicken walnut sandwich, served on a croissant with grapes, and get an iced sugar cookie for dessert. Or try the spanakopita—delicious homemade spinach pie served with pita bread, tzatziki sauce and a green leaf salad on the side. Plaza Eatery also offers a sizeable breakfast menu.

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!

2.79 rating (39 votes)
This bright and colorful café caters primarily to Downtown office workers (Weekdays—get it?). We like that it has substantial salads and New Mexican fare to choose from that hit the spot. The selection of housemade baked goods is huge and very tempting. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque - Fairgrounds

Kaps Coffee Shop

5801 Central Ave NE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM 87123
232-9658
Cuisine: Diner, New Mexican

5 rating (1 vote)
This venerable Route 66 diner has been kicking around various locations on Central for about 40 years now. It’s most recent landing spot is in the former home of Perea’s near San Mateo, and it might just be the best yet. True, after an extensive remodel, the interior isn’t quite period accurate for the Mother Road’s golden age, but the decor straddles the line between kitschy and classy quite nicely. The menu remains decidedly old school, with the requisite pancakes and huevos rancheros, and so do the prices. (Alibi Staff, February 6, 2015)

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”!

We're pretty sure if you take any food and stuff it with cheese, dip it in batter and deep-fry the sucker until it's crunchy and golden-brown, it's going to be good. But try the relleno at Papa Nachos—you’ll taste art. While you’re at it, try the unique green chile sauce (which happens to be excellent on turkey) or any of the burritos wrapped in fresh, tender tortillas. Closed Sunday and Monday. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Cuisine: New Mexican

Mick’s offers excellent value for your dollar. The dining room is no-frills and the menu selections are also basic, but it's done right. Breakfast is served all day alongside New Mexican fare like wrist-sized enchiladas, fat, moist tamales and beyond-tender carne adovada. The service is lightning-quick. And the chile? The red has a nice red-orange color and a medium heat. The green's even better with a beautiful emerald color, a warm, fruity taste, medium heat and just enough body. Frito pie has pride of place on the menu, but best of all, the bill won't burn you. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
