New Mexican food in the Garduño’s vein—plus burgers and booze—in a bucolic valley setting. In fact, El Bruno’s does indeed occupy the site (and, one might assume, the demographic) of the former North Valley Garduño’s. (Alibi Staff, April 10, 2013)

Albuquerque - Corrales

Little Anita's

10200 Corrales Road NW (Corrales)
Albuquerque NM 87114
(505) 899-2670‎
Cuisine: New Mexican

3.67 rating (7 votes)
Little Anita's menu is New Mexican to the core, with enchiladas, burritos, carne adovada 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)

You’d better get to Barelas early on Saturday morning if you don’t want to wait in line for a table. 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)

Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunch

3.23 rating (22 votes)
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

230 Sixth Street SW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 243-7070
Mon -Fri am-2 pm Sat-Sun 7 am-3 pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

2.56 rating (29 votes)
This little restaurant clings close to the heart of Downtown on Sixth Street and Silver, and the food is actually made by Cecilia herself in the kitchen. The tacos, burritos and enchiladas are traditional, tasty and pretty friggin’ cheap, too. The red chile packs a wallop, and Cecilia’s is even open on Sundays. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Meals Served: BreakfastLunch
Cuisine: New Mexican

3.17 rating (6 votes)
Throw down about $6 at this New Mexican joint and you’ll get more red chile pork stew than you can eat in two sittings (we know, we tried). Make it $9 and a plate of carne adovada taquitos will fill your belly with a flavorful Southwestern zing, and they’ll be accompanied by some of the best sopaipillas in town (and real honey to douse them in). The place, tucked into a quiet strip center off of Fourth Street, is a bit hard to find, but well worth the effort. (Alibi Staff, January 30, 2014)

Garcia’s

2.1 rating (27 votes)
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)

Lindy’s Diner

500 Central Ave SW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 242-2582
Mon-Thurs: 7am-9pm Fri-Sat: 7am-3am Sun: 8am-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner

2.69 rating (26 votes)
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.

(Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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

3.14 rating (14 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, tsatsiki 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!

(505) 842-8455
Mon-Fri: 7am-2pm Closed Weekends (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

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”! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Cuisine: New Mexican

3.39 rating (20 votes)
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)

Gobbling down a perfect Belgian waffle with homemade strawberry sauce, you might see this restaurant’s founder, Tim Harris, sitting with a table full of diners. (Besides having a knack for people, he’s won dozens of medals in Special Olympics track and field, hockey, and basketball.) Tim’s menu is New Mexican home cooking with a twist—green chile cheese grits, burritos, huevos and omelets for breakfast; sandwiches, burgers, salads, enchiladas and a daily homemade cobbler for lunch. Generous portions are all comfortably below the $10 mark, and the hugs are always free. (Alibi Staff, June 14, 2012)
