Albuquerque - Downtown

Ibiza at Hotel Andaluz

125 2nd St NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM
505-242-9090
www.hotelandaluz.com/eat-dr...
Sun-Thu 4pm-10pm Fri-Sat 4pm-1am (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late

2.67 rating (3 votes)
This rooftop bar, the flirty sister of the fancier (and pricier) Lucia, offers a breezy patio, a menu of small plates and specialty cocktails for the Los Angeles-inclined Downtown crowd. The food is hit or miss, but the house-created cocktails—like the spicy-yet-refreshing cucumber-jalapeño margarita—make it well worth a visit. (Alibi Staff, October 10, 2012)

Java Joe’s

906 Park SW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 765-1514

Mon-Sun: 6:30am-3:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

3.7 rating (20 votes)
According to one of our readers, Java Joe’s is “the last of a dying breed.” There are indeed “few choices left to get that cool Haight-Ashbury ’60s feeling.” Don’t get the wrong idea, though, this neighborhood coffee shop isn’t overflowing with hippies. It attracts a diverse crowd of cyclists, artists, musicians, hipsters and grownups just looking for a cuppa joe (albeit one with in-house roasted beans). The food is simple and satisfying, from freshly baked scones to waffles, burritos, sandwiches and salads, and the sidewalk seating is definitely for the dogs. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The Library Bar and Grill

312 Central Ave SW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 242-2992
www.libraryabq.com
Mon-Sat: 11am-2am Sun: noon-midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

2.84 rating (19 votes)
The Library began as a concept bar a few years ago in Tempe, Ariz., catering to the lunch and dinner crowd, transforming in the later hours of the evening into a nightclub. The food is pretty standard bar fare with burgers and the like—but at least in this case you’ll be served by Catholic schoolgirl-attired waitresses, who, at prescribed times during the night, will dance on the bar mere inches from your taco plate.

Maloney’s

325 Central Ave NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 242-7422

If jocked-out Humphrey Bogart and sorority-girl Lauren Bacall had to pick a spot in this town to stare dreamily into each other’s eyes, and then polish off a plate of sliders, they’d probably do it at Maloney’s. Located smack in the center of Downtown, this pub and eatery boasts a movie star-themed menu, rock-star music and one of the the most popular patios in the Burque. Check out their Sierra Nevada-battered onion rings with chipotle ranch dressing or their signature “spuds Maloney” loaded potato skins. And with no cover charge, even Sinatra’s limo driver can afford to roll on in. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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 rating (11 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.

Modeled after a New York loft, Slate Street’s wine bar has an ultra-hip, modern, minimalist feel. This wine list is rhythmic, flowing and poetic, and it’s the most pleasurable to read and easiest to comprehend in Albuquerque. The wines are listed by style—“just a little sweet,” “ABC: Anything But Chardonnay” or “sexy, elegant, austere”—not varietal or region. Demystifying the label like this makes it easy for patrons to pair wine and food. The listings are simple, but not simplistic. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Forget everything you know about typical diners. Add class, upscale furnishings and a larger price tag, and then you’ll have the Standard Diner. They have oysters, fine wines and homemade desserts, and some interesting twists on ordinary fare like meatloaf and mac and cheese. The service is doting, the view of our beloved Huning Highland is representative and if you need a restaurant to take your boss to, try kissing his rings while downing a nice glass of Port. It might make it a little easier. (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!

Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

3.17 rating (6 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

Blake’s Lotaburger

Mon-Sun: 7am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Cuisine: American

2.63 rating (8 votes)
A New Mexico tradition since 1952! For an award-winning (for both Best Burger and Best French Fries), quick burger or chili dog, fresh fries and fountain favorites that hit the spot for just a pocketful of change, it’s got to be Blake’s. Countless counters are scattered throughout the city, and each one is a model of efficiency and cleanliness. Why look any further? They’re easy to spot from afar—just keep an eye out for the giant Asian Uncle Sam sign. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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)

The Cooperage is old-school Albuquerque, right down to the dusty light fixtures. The barrel-shaped steakhouse has been a standby for 30 years thanks to its mile-long complimentary salad and soup bar, aged steaks (at a place like this, prime rib is king), and big dance floor that’s always packed on the weekends. Winners of Best Catering in 2007’s Best of Burque Poll. (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”!

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: High Ridge (See Film Times)

4.3 rating (22 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)

Home of the ranchero burger and a screamin’ $2 Frito pie (which usually takes top honors in our restaurant polls), these burgers are similar to their Lotaburger or Its-a-Burger cousins, except they have loads of green or red chile on them. And Bob's offers "taco burgers"—burgers in taco shells instead of buns. Bob is quite the creative entrepreneur; it shows on the chile-stained faces of his fanatic followers.

Everyone loves good, old-fashioned barbecue, and you’ll find heaps of it at the County Line. It has everything you could want: sweet corn on the cob, coleslaw, brown-sugar beans, you name it. Oh, and meat, meat, meat. The baby back ribs are especially good, as is the homemade hickory barbecue sauce. Wash it down with a pint and phenomenal city views, and you’ll be feeling right at home on the range. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
