Remember that last trip to Juarez? OK, maybe it’s better that you don’t. But to get the taste of authentic Old Mexico without going south of the border, check out the fare at El Viva Mexico. 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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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, and the place is open 24 hours every day. Take the kids, take the dog or just take yourself out for late plate of authentic tacos, burritos, chimichangas and an ice-cold horchata. Your stomach and your wallet will thank you in the morning.

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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Upgrade your late-night Taco B run for a stop at Taco C. This San Antonio-based Mexican chain makes their tortillas to order 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? (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Los Compadres used to be a humble, rambling building on Isleta, but has now moved into an old Village Inn on Central Avenue near the Bio Park. On the menu are all of your traditional New Mexican favorites (adovada, menudo, 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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Mon-Sun: 6am-8pm (hours can change without notice)

3.6 rating (5 votes)
Burritos Alinstante, or burritos in an instant as we like to say in English, should be called “really big, cheap 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.

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 takeout 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 . (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

La Cocina at Pro’s Ranch Market

Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner

4.83 rating (10 votes)
While Albuquerque has several grocery stores catering specifically to the Hispanic community, none match Pro’s in size and variety. Just past the overwhelming bakery and right next to the nearly surreal produce section is the store’s cafeteria-style eatery. La Cocina prepares Mexican and Central American dishes from ingredients found in the store while diners sit elbow to elbow at long wooden tables. It’s loud and somewhat confusing, almost like being in a real mercado. The food’s authentic, too. Caldo de pollo is rich with chicken, the posole packs a delicious punch and the carnitas are to die for. While you’re there, nearby stands offer several varieties of aguas frescas , salsas, house-made ice creams, seafood and fried snacks. It’s all pretty darn fresh and inexpensive. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Brothers Lorenzo and Carlos Alvarez, along with father Rafael, whip up frozen Mexican style paletas and ice cream with natural ingredients like real fruit and organic cane sugar. You won’t find high fructose corn syrup here, but you will discover Grandma Alvarez’s horchata and limeade recipes, as well as exotic ice cream and paleta creations like guanabana, mimosa and, our favorite, avocado.

Rio Grande Tacos y Salsas

1411 Isleta SW (South Valley)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 877-3890
Mon-Sun: 8am-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Cuisine: Mexican

5 rating (2 votes)
Although “Salsa” is part of its name, the menu at Rio Grande Tacos y Salsas doesn’t once mention that word. Yet the salsa flows, starting with your welcome basket of chips and continuing throughout your meal with as many refills you ask for. The small restaurant, situated in a grocery mercado parking lot where Goff and Arenal meet Isleta, serves Mexican delicacies like trays of clean, bacony tripitas de leche and fajita-like platters of alambre . To drink, there are fresh-squeezed juices of every stripe, housemade horchata and hot champurrado . (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque - Southeast

Acapulco Tacos & Burritos

840 San Mateo Blvd SE (Southeast)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 268-9865
Mon-Sat: 7:00am-7:30pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

4.12 rating (17 votes)
These brightly painted stands sell 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 takeout only, and you’ll probably end up eating everything you bought before you make it back home. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

El Mezquite Market

201 San Pedro SE (Southeast)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 452-0092
7 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day at every location. Kitchens close at 8 p.m., though they’ve been known to run out of food earlier. (hours can change without notice)

The biggest clue you’re still in the U.S. is an MVD Express. All the El Mezquite stores have a “casa de cambio” currency exchange service, which adds to the foreign flavor. So do rows of Mexican and other Hispanic foods with an army of piñatas suspended above. A restaurant, flanked by the store's bakery, features a cafeteria-style serving line that begins in front of a mountain of roasted pig. Next, there’s an array of meats, some mixed with vegetables, and at least one soup. Finally, past horchata and aguas frescas and a cash register, big wooden tables and a 20-something-member salsa bar await diners. (Alibi Staff, January 6, 2011)

El Pollo Real

600 Louisiana SE (Southeast)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 266-2305

Mon-Sun: 11am-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.86 rating (7 votes)
This boxy strip mall gem is a Colombian restaurant with a solid lineup of Mexican dishes to boot, as well as chicken—crispy, juicy, falling-off-the-bone tender and full of smoky charbroiled flavor. Milky horchata is homemade (and runs out quickly). An appetizer of imported blood sausage comes with pieces of fried plantain that are pounded and fried to resemble flowers. Ropa vieja may translate as “old clothes,” but shredded flank steak in Creole sauce is a culinary masterpiece not to be underestimated—especially when it comes with chile, eggs, cilantro, garlic and plantains.

El Sabor de Juarez

3527 Gibson Blvd SE (Southeast)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 265-3338
Mon-Tues: 8am-2:30pm Wed-Sun: 8am-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner

So sabroso ! This is one of those sweet mom ’n’ pop restaurants that is much beloved by neighbors but nearly unknown by folks in other parts of the city. Well, now you know. If you’re in the mood for real Mexican food like chicharron burritos, shredded chicken tacos or irresistibly good desebrada , then head on over to El Sabor.
