Albuquerque - North Valley

Rincon Del Pollo

9129 Fourth Street NW (North Valley)
Ste A
Albuquerque NM
(505) 890-5925
Mon-Sat: 8am-3pm Sun: 9am-1pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch
A stone’s throw away from Alameda, this bright red and yellow brick building is a haven for pollo sabroso. You can get your chicken dressed in gravy, swimming in red or green chile, or stuffed into a burrito, torta or taco (to name a few); better still, wash it down with a fresh glass of horchata. In a town of too-often lifeless refried beans, Rincon served us the best home-style frijoles we’ve had in a shamefully long time. The chicken soup is mild and thick with rice and chunks of celery, carrot and yellow bell pepper.

Albuquerque - Northeast Heights

Acapulco Tacos & Burros

2617 Wyoming Blvd NE (Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 237-8044
Mon-Sat 7:30am-7:30pm Sun 9am-3pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
These brightly painted exteriors serve quick, tasty Mexican standards for cheap. The burritos come wrapped in a delightfully moist and tender tortilla and are quite satisfying for the price (some are just $1.75). In fact, the most expensive dinner plate you can buy here comes in at just under $5 and features seven items. Beware: Acapulco is more of a take-out than sit-down place, and you’ll probably end up eating everything you bought before you make it back home.

Get the taste of authentic Old Mexico without going south of the border. There’s soothing melón agua fresca, and the horchata is made fresh with rice, almonds, a little sugar and flavored with a vanilla bean. There’s menudo and carnitas, and the salsa is hot, hot, hot. It’s kid-friendly, and breakfast is served all day; so enjoy yourself, por favor.

Federico’s Mexican Food

Mon-Sun 6am-midnight 24 hour drive through (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinnerOpen Late
Cuisine: Mexican
The thought of a restaurant without green chile scares the crap out of most New Mexicans, but if you can get past the initial shock, the authentic Mexican food at Federico’s is good and good for you. The cheap prices don’t reflect the grande portions, or the top-rate quality of the ingredients. Take the kids, take the dog or just take yourself out for a late plate of authentic tacos, burritos, chimichangas and an ice-cold horchata. Your stomach and your wallet will thank you in the morning.

Papa Felipe’s Mexican Restaurant

9800 Menaul Blvd NE (Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87112
(505) 292-8877
www.papafelipes.com
Sun-Thurs: 11am-9pm Fri-Sat: 11am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Mexican
The service in this restaurant is impressive. The tortilla chips are big and brawny—you could tile a roof with ’em—and the queso is just right; not too thick or thin, with plenty of green chile. Bring your family here and enjoy the neon cacti décor with a chilaquile casserole (layered with carne adovada, melted cheese, spicy green vegetables, sweet corn and tostadas smothered in red chile). Choices like Tampico tacos, green tamale pie, camarones Victor and the Macho enchilada are a brief departure from the usual, but still traditional enough to appeal to purists.

A tiny, L-shaped Mexican joint with a tiny, tempting menu of tacos, tostadas and more. Order a ceviche tostada and some tacos al pastor and you’ll feel like you’re sitting on the beach of a coastal Mexican getaway.

Upgrade your late-night Taco B run for a stop at Taco C. This San Antonio-based Mexican chain makes their tortillas to order along with horchata and four varieties of salsas fresh every day. Fajitas, crunchy-fried combination plates, quesadillas, even breakfast and dessert items. On the healthier side, there are soft tacos, salads and citrus-marinated rotisserie chicken. And what was the last fast food joint you went to that served beer and Margaritas?

So it's one of those touristy places that claims to be "authentic" with Margaritas and "homemade" tortilla chips. Eh, your out-of-state in-laws won't know the difference, and you won't have to hear your monster-in-law complain that your chicken is dry—again.

Los Compadres Restaurant

Albuquerque NM 87104
(505) 452-8091
Tues-Sat: 8am-8pm Sun-Mon: 8am-3pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Los Compadres used to be a humble, rambling building on Isleta, but has now moved into an old Village Inn on Central near the BioPark. On the menu are all of your traditional New Mexican favorites (adovada and posole) plus a sizable list of real Mexican food, like tacos al pastor, desebrada burritos and bistec a la Mexicana. The chips and salsa are especially good.

Perico's de Albuquerque

(505) 839-4762
www.pericosmexicanrestauran…
Mon-Fri 9am-9pm Sat 10am-9pm Sun 10am-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Next time you need some quick takeout, try Perico’s 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. And the cooks always put forks, spoons, knives, napkins and salsa in your bag without making you ask. Also, Perico’s has more than 20 burrito combinations that, for a few pennies more, can be fried into a chimichanga.

Albuquerque - South Valley

Burritos Alinstante

2101 Broadway Blvd SE (South Valley)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 242-0966
www.burritosinaninstant.com
Mon-Sat: 6am-7pm Sunday: 7am-1pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Burritos Alinstante, which translates to burritos in an instant, should really be called “giant, inexpensive and delicious burritos in an instant.” The menu also contains tacos and tamales, and you can use the drive-through for maximum time efficiency and faster deliciousness. And don’t leave without trying the potatoes, beans, cheese and green chile option.

Mon-Sun: 7am-7pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Good luck finding this place for the first time. El Modelo is tucked away on an industrial stretch of Second Street that seems an unlikely location for such a well-patronized joint. Not a sit-down restaurant, this is a production facility that does a brisk take-out business. The patio tables in the grass bordering the parking lot don’t offer a good view, but most folks don’t seem to want to wait any longer than they have to before tearing into their lunches. We suggest you swing by, pick up a six pack of El Modelo beer and take your El Modelo tamales back to the casa for a lunch that’s muy sabroso.

Albuquerque NM 87105
(505) 877-8871
El Sarape 2
Mariscos and northern Mexican cuisine with a unique flair. Various ceviche-like dishes feature raw shrimp of unusually firm deliciousness. The epic Vuelve a la Vida platter containing seven types of seafood including squid and baby octopus must be seen to be believed. Don’t fill up on the chips.
