Hartford Square

Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinner
The menu changes weekly, but Hartford Square always features high-quality, locally-sourced food with both eat-in and take-out options. Salads are well stocked with fresh, seasonal ingredients, and there are always a few hot options like Canadian salmon or ratatouille pot pie. The tea selection here is simply divine. Try the Sandia spice tea, a steaming cup of the herbal blood orange tea or go big with a vanilla tea latte. If you’re early enough, you’ll get first crack at the crossword in the house copy of the New York Times.

Java Joe’s

906 Park Ave SW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 765-1514
www.downtownjavajoes.com
Mon-Sun: 6:30am-3:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch
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 grown-ups 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, sandwiches and salads. Warning: The scrambled-egg breakfast burrito may cause you to moan out loud. Don’t worry though, the people sitting around you will understand.

Happy Hour!: 4:00:00 pm - 7:00:00 pm
The food is pretty standard bar fare with burgers and the like. But hey, you can have a delicious Pickleback (whiskey and pickle juice) to wash it down. Then hop out onto the dance floor, cheer on the neon go-go dancers and boogie.

Lindy’s Diner

500 Central Ave SW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 242-2582
Mon-Sun: 7am-6pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
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.

Mak's QuickFire Kitchen

411 Central Ave NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
242-6563
Mon-Fri: 10:30am-7pm (hours can change without notice)
Cuisine: Chinese
This is Chinese fast food through and through, with styrofoam plates and plastic forks, but don’t let that keep you away. The food here is actually very good, with traditional American-Chinese favorites like sweet and sour pork or General Tso’s chicken. There are even a few New Mexican twists like green chile egg rolls. Oh, and the hot mustard is pretty much nuclear. You’ve been warned.

New Mexico Beef Jerky Company

1527 Fourth Street NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
505-242-6121
newmexicobeefjerky.com
Mon-Fri 7am-5pm Sat 8am-5pm Sun: Closed (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Cuisine: New Mexican
A fantastic take on New Mexican cuisine featuring flaming hot, savory chile, melt-in-your-mouth chicharrones and sleeper hit huevos rancheros that are 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.

lepockette.wix.com/papafranks
Mon-Fri: 7am-2pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch
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 plasticware beneath your enchiladas. The red chile is made fresh daily and packs a flavorful punch.

Plaza Eatery

1 Civic Plaza NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 768-3539
Mon-Fri: 7am-4pm Sat-Sun: Closed (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch
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, 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 salad served with a croissant, and get a chocolate-dipped cookie for dessert. Plaza Eatery also offers a sizeable breakfast menu.

Albuquerque NM 87105
508-1082
www.pop-fizz.net
Mon: 11am-6pm Tue-Sun: 11am-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Frozen Mexican-style paletas made with real fruit and organic cane sugar create an experience unlike the frozen treats you find in a box at the store. You won’t find high fructose corn syrup here, but you will discover Grandma Alvarez’ horchata and limeade recipes, as well as exotic paleta creations like guanabana, mimosa and, our favorite, avocado.

This bright, fresh restaurant truly serves organic food. They use real, whole foods like grass-fed dairy, cage-free eggs, grass-fed beef, organic chicken and organic produce. The meals are fast, convenient and delicious and are all naturally gluten-free. Now that’s rad.

Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 843-9418
Mon-Fri: 7am-2pm Sat-Sun: Closed (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch
Downtown chowhounds can enjoy a light, simple and delicious breakfast or lunch at the Roma Bakery and Deli. Choose a salad from the deli case (the spicy tuna is a must-try) or get the Magnífica deli-style sandwich, filled with salami, pepperoni and turkey topped with balsamic vinaigrette, for a filling meal at a great price. As a bonus, Oscar tucks away a homemade cookie for dessert or you can eyeball other fresh bakery treats behind the glass to take for later.

sisterthebar.com
Sun-Sat 11am-2pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BrunchLunchDinnerOpen Late
The cavernous, ground-floor counterpart to Anodyne, Sister is a space tailor-made for happenings. This is a perfect spot for enjoying a quiet dip into the vast draft beer selection with your comrades after work or boogying to the multitude of live bands that occupy its stage nearly every night. Foodies must try the kimchi fries and the divine brisket tacos.

Taquería Mexico

415 Lomas Blvd NE (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 242-3445
www.taqueriamexicoabq.com/i…
Mon-Sat: 7am-7pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
This brightly colored taco shop is always busy. Despite the constant stream of hard hats, auto mechanics and high-heeled office workers, Taquería Mexico somehow stays spotlessly clean. And the food is great! Their tortas come on big, hot rolls stuffed with your choice of meats (try the shredded beef), lettuce, jack cheese, tomato, mayonnaise and avocado. The big, juicy burgers are fantastic, as are the burritos, the caldo de res and the soft corn tortilla tacos (of course).

Zendo ArtEspresso

413 Second Street SW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 926-1636
https://www.facebook.com/Ze…
Mon-Sun: 7am-6pm (hours can change without notice)
The decor here is minimalist-to-nonexistant, but Zendo makes up for the bare-bones aesthetic by serving an array of near-perfect espresso drinks and by committing to support local art and music events. Speciality beverages include a Mexican latte—white chocolate and cinammon—and, of course, the Heisenberg—made with six shots of espresso and dusted with sky blue sugar crystals. At least, we hope that’s sugar. And don’t forget to order a chai tea latte for the road.

Zohra

20 First Plaza NW (Downtown)
Ste 246
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 247-2323
www.zohraabq.com
Mon-Sat: 7:30am-5:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchOpen Late
Open only for breakfast and lunch, Zohra's caters to the 9-to-5 crowd with a little bit of everything a Downtown diner could possibly want: Afghan foods, American standbys, even Indian tacos. But stick with the Middle Eastern stuff. Chicken kabobs are moist and unbelievably tender, served with peas on fluffy rice. There’s also chicken salan (stewed in a rich, warm gravy heavy with cardamom and mint, among other aromatic spices), gyros and a number of vegetarian choices that come à la carte or as a meal.

Baggin’s Gourmet Sandwiches

5900 Lomas Blvd NE (Fairgrounds)

(505) 262-1451
bagginsabq.com
Mon-Fri 10-5:30pm Sat: 10:30-4pm Sun: Closed (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Lunch
Baggin’s prepares satisfying hot and cold sandwiches at a decent price. The Sundown is a staple for chronic dine-’n’-drivers: basically a turkey dinner in sandwich form, complete with stuffing and cranberry sauce. Try it on toasted whole wheat or sourdough instead of the standard roll. This old-school sandwich emporium has been at the top of our BoBR categories for Best Sandwich and Best Soup many times over the years.

Mon-Thurs: 6am-9pm Fri-Sat:6am-10pm Sun: 7am-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Cuisine: American
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?

Mon-Sat: 10:30am-9pm Sun: Closed (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Vietnamese, Asian
Consistently one of the best Vietnamese joints in town. Da Lat does a magnificent breaded frog leg appetizer. The crispy golden legs are scrumptious dipped in Da Lat's salty, tangy nuoc cham sauce.

Chopstix

6001 Lomas Blvd NE Ste L (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM 87110
(505) 268-8777
www.chopstixabq.com
Tue-Thu: 11am-8pm Fri-Sat: 11am-9pm Sun: 11am-8pm Mon: Closed (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Chinese
Chopstix is a real culinary adventure with authentic Beijing-style cuisine. You'll find dishes like sweet red bean-stuffed steamed buns, dan dan noodles, mustard green and dried bean curd, and cashew chicken. Amuse your server to no end by ordering the pickled green and pork noodles, a traditional dish that "only Chinese people like!" A few bucks gets you a huge bowl filled with a rich, porky broth, rice noodles, bok choy, tripe and irregular chunks of pork belly, striated with fat and muscle—not for the meek of pork, to be sure.
