Cecilia is the matriarch of one of Albuquerque’s best breakfast burritos and red chile. Clinging close to the heart of Downtown on Sixth Street and Silver, Cecilia makes the food herself in the kitchen. The red chile is no joke and the prices are pretty friggin’ cheap, too.

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. (Alibi Staff, September 12, 2013)

Albuquerque NM
(505) 242-2582
Mon-Sun: 7am-6pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner

2.74 rating (27 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.

This venerable Route 66 diner has been kicking around various locations on Central for about 40 years now. 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 hot cakes and huevos rancheros, and so do the prices. (Alibi Staff, February 6, 2015)

If you like chicken-fried steak, then you owe it to your belly to eat at Vic’s. A chef friend of ours turned us on to Vic’s, where the “Big Grill” is a giant sliced savory roast beef with bacon that will make your eyes light up and your stomach say “howdy.” Seriously, some of the best we’ve ever had. The rest of the menu is classic diner fare (meat loaf, liver and onions) with a large selection of sandwiches and New Mexican and Greek dishes. With seven different omelette options, your brunch just leveled up. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque - Midtown

Hurricane’s Restaurant and Drive-In

Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.36 rating (23 votes)
A whole crew of Burqueños could split Hurricane's ginormous Disaster burrito and still have leftovers to go around. Come back later for a Typhoon burger (beef, bacon, cheese, grilled onions and Thousand Island dressing), a marvel of a mouthful—all those juicy toppings! It's a killer, especially with a giant order of curly fries. If you want the ground to crack beneath your feet, order the Earthquake burger: two patties and double cheese. Wash it down with a lime Ricky or a luscious chocolate malt. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Milton’s left its diner location on Route 66 a couple of years back, but the new location is still slinging the same classic hash the joint has long been known for. The pancakes, breakfast burritos and Monte Cristos are truly awesome and served all day, along with the other signature breakfast and Greek items, none of which will break the bank.

Albuquerque - Nob Hill

Mannies Restaurant

Mon-Sun: 6am-9pm (hours can change without notice)

3.79 rating (30 votes)
Mannies is a little neighborhood diner that’s actually quite large. A Nob Hill mainstay for decades, you’re sure to see someone you know if you eat here for breakfast on the weekend. One of our favorite dishes is the marvelous BLT with thick slabs of bacon, a nest of shredded lettuce and a generous slathering of mayo. For brunch, try their corned beef with hash browns.

There are more members of AARP than UNM students at this University-area lunch counter, but it has nothing to do with the food. There are also more women than men filling the tables, though that’s understandable. After all, half of the building is dedicated to fancy soaps, hairbrushes, jewelry and perfumes. But this pharmacy (which doesn’t take insurance and therefore fills few prescriptions) is full of mysterious contrasts and pleasant surprises. The mostly sandwich menu is far above par, with real roasted turkey breast and house-made brisket, and Model has the Best Soda Fountain in Albuquerque, according to our readers.

(505) 898-7660
Mon-Sat: 6am-8pm Sun: 7am-2pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Cuisine: American, Diner

4.15 rating (21 votes)
This is honest, no-frills American diner food without the diner. The ambience feels a bit like a large, ranch-style living room that’s been converted into a neighborhood restaurant. Chicken-fried steak and biscuits and gravy abound in massive portions and are every bit as good as your childhood memories. And if you skip dessert, you’re only cheating yourself out of seriously delicious homemade pies and cakes lovingly made by Granny. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

There’s a certain tangible thrill that comes with eating in the hollow gullet of a giant bird of prey, especially when you’re tearing into a juicy green chile cheeseburger, red-tinged grease streaming down your claws, a shiny ring encircling your beak.

Albuquerque - Old Town

Central Grill and Coffee House

2056 Central Ave SW (Old Town)
Albuquerque NM 87104
505-554-1424

2.67 rating (3 votes)
Central Grill is one of the crop of new diners that embraces the aesthetic of yesterday’s greasy spoons while offering house-made meals with high-quality ingredients. It might be a little too cozy, especially during the lunch rush, but if you come during quieter hours the small space becomes intimate and homey. Try the inside-out burger, with cheese cooked into the patty, or the chilaquiles with fried tortilla wedges and your choice of chile. (Alibi Staff, October 28, 2015)

Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Cuisine: New Mexican, Diner

3.91 rating (24 votes)
The ladies here make their own tortillas, rolling out perfect little discs of dough and heating them on the griddle until they become huge, puffy pillows ready to receive a heap of chile and runny-yolked egg. And they’ve been doing it the same way since 1961. Don’t be stupid. Go to Duran’s, and do not leave without ordering something involving a fresh flour tortilla, preferably in combination with their fantastic red chile. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Cuisine: Diner, New Mexican

A family-friendly restaurant open since 1952. Not to be confused with the Mac’s Steak in the Rough chain, this is solid diner chow with crispy chips and salsa, New Mexican favorites and, yes, steak in the rough. (Alibi Staff, October 9, 2013)

Albuquerque - South Valley

Grandma's K&I Diner

2500 Broadway Blvd SE (South Valley)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 243-1881
Open every day 6 am-3 pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

4.24 rating (37 votes)
Sweet Lord, this South Broadway dive (and we mean way south) is postcard-worthy. First off, the outside looks like a candy-cane-striped barn. Inside, old-timey knickknacks are plastered to every surface, and the air is thick with the smell of fried foods. The chicken-fried steak (served with hash browns, biscuits and cream gravy) is as big as the dinner plates used at other restaurants, and the infamous “Travis” burrito, a giant beef-and-bean burrito that’s actually smothered in french fries, must be seen to be believed. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner

4.6 rating (5 votes)
This cowboy-themed diner used to be called Roper’s Restaurant, but new ownership has taken over and changed the name. Happily, a lot of what we loved about Roper’s has survived the transition. There’s still a bunch of cowboy crap all over the walls and a bewildering array of good food to choose from. We especially recommend the green-chile-and-piñon-nut-stuffed Santa Fe pancakes and the downhome chicken-fried steak. If you come by for dinner, give the in-house smoked BBQ a try.

Winners of Best Dish Covered in Gravy, Best Chicken-Fried Steak, Best Milkshake/Malt, Best Diner and Best American in recent polls. Step back in time for old-fashioned diner food and atmosphere with a New Mexican twist (incarnate in the hot and spicy Frito Pie). The 66 Diner dishes up yummy burgers and fries, breakfast plates and daily specials like chicken pot pie with cream gravy or crispy-fried po’ boys. The real stars in this place, though, are the awesome frozen desserts. They run the gamut from mammoth banana splits to 99-cent teeny-weeny hot fudge sundaes. The milkshakes come in almost any flavor combination you can think of and are some of the creamiest, most lip-smacking concoctions around. (Alibi Staff, October 13, 2010)

3.47 rating (49 votes)
Frontier is an Albuquerque staple that most folks can agree on. Breakfast burritos, sweet rolls, huevos rancheros, green chile stew, shakes, fresh-squeezed orange juice: It’s all great. The ambience is strictly cafeteria plus plenty of interesting characters to talk to after a late night study session. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
