Albuquerque

Doggerz

Albuquerque NM
315-5681

2.17 rating (6 votes)
It may have a small, rotating menu, but whatever Doggerz is dishing out on a given day is guaranteed to be good. Philly cheesesteak seems to be a mainstay, as do beer brats steamed in real beer. But you never know what they might be cooking, so just make sure to come hungry. (Alibi Staff, July 18, 2013)

Laguna Burger (66 Pit Stop)

14311 Central Ave NW
Albuquerque NM 87121
505-352-7848
Mon-Sat 6am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinnerOpen Late
Cuisine: American

4.78 rating (9 votes)
Here, you can eat one of the best green chile burgers in the state of New Mexico. Laguna Burger doesn’t offer much in the way of atmosphere, but more than makes up for it in sheer flavor. (Alibi Staff, October 10, 2012)

Albuquerque - Corrales

Flying Star Café

Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinnerOpen Late

2.61 rating (38 votes)
Winner of Best Casual Dining, Best Veggie Burger, Best Toast, Best Healthy Breakfast and Best Desserts in our restaurant polls. Sure, you go in thinking you’ll be good and get a skinny latte, scrambled egg whites and a side of turkey and green chile sausage, but five minutes later somebody’s saying “eclair” and the voice is coming from your mouth. But, boy, do they taste good. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Adieux Café

They’re no longer open till late, but Adieux Café is still serving up excellent beer and sandwiches in the heart of Downtown. Most days, they’re open for lunch (with a pint, if you’re so inclined) but on Saturdays dinner’s on the menu from 5pm until the customers stop coming. We recommend that you try the reuben, a colorful and tangy twist on a classic panini. (Alibi Staff, January 7, 2014)

Al’s Big Dipper

501 Copper Ave NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 314-1118

Mon-Fri: 11am-4:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.83 rating (16 votes)
Al’s has moved from the old Relish space Downtown to a spot inside the Main Library on Copper and serves a hefty menu of inspired hot and cold sandwiches. There’s an emphasis on homemade touches, from the sweet onion jam on the roast beef sandwich to the cookie that comes with every order. Good salads, daily made-from-scratch soups, a new sandwich special every day and a supremely good glute-free bread keep the lunch crowd on its toes. (Alibi Staff, November 4, 2010)

Artichoke Café

424 Central Ave SE (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

Once your lunch or dinner at the upscale Artichoke Café has concluded, you’ve got to adjourn to the sexy new Wine Bar next door. The wine list is actually a leather-bound tome with a massive assortment of wines. Prices start at a decent $28 or $30 a bottle and zoom up into the upper stratospheres of frivolity, but you can also order select vintages by the half-bottle or glass. You'll love the front-facing "big city" windows, curvy wooden bar and comfortable seats. It’s open until 11 p.m. on the weekends, but beware: The kitchen stops serving at 10 p.m. No matter. It’s got one hell of a breadbasket, and, as our server once suggested, "You can fill up on the wine!" Don't mind if we do! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Café Lush

cafelushabq.com
Mon-Fri 7am-3pm Sat 8am-1pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunch

3.63 rating (8 votes)
Café Lush is like a daydream of the way things might be in some future hybrid of Europe and Albuquerque. It’s an urban café on a quiet street corner, with a small menu of simple yet well-crafted dishes and a pledge to use local, seasonal and organic ingredients whenever possible. But unlike in Europe, the red and green chile won’t disappoint. (Alibi Staff, November 17, 2011)

Cecilia’s Café

230 Sixth Street SW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 243-7070
Mon -Fri am-2 pm Sat-Sun 7 am-3 pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

2.58 rating (28 votes)
This little restaurant clings close to the heart of Downtown on Sixth Street and Silver, and the food is actually made by Cecilia herself in the kitchen. The tacos, burritos and enchiladas are traditional, tasty and pretty friggin’ cheap, too. The red chile packs a wallop, and Cecilia’s is even open on Sundays. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Dog House Drive In

1216 Central Ave SW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 243-1019
Mon-Sun: 10:00am-9:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: American

3.46 rating (31 votes)
Sometimes we're so anxious for a double green chile cheeseburger, we dig in without even washing our hands. That's how tantalizing this food is! The flashing sign beckons us to hot dog mecca, where we indulge in not only dogs but the essential tater tots and Frito pie. Get your dogs to go and race home so you can enjoy them with a few brews. Or go inside the Dog House and find a seat at the tiny counter, then nurse that sweaty tongue of yours with a milkshake. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Winner of Best Casual Dining, Best Veggie Burger, Best Toast, Best Healthy Breakfast and Best Desserts in our 2008 restaurant poll. Sure, you go in thinking you’ll be good and get a skinny latte, scrambled egg whites and a side of turkey and green chile sausage, but five minutes later somebody’s saying “eclair” and the voice is coming from your mouth.

Gold Rush Cupcakes

20 First Plaza (Downtown)
Suite 211 (Third Street and Copper)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 247-4653
www.goldrushcupcakes.com
Monday-Friday 10 am - 3 pm (hours can change without notice)

4.25 rating (12 votes)
Moist cake, exceptional cream cheese frosting, and inspired flavors and decorations (the adorable “breakfast” cupcake is topped with a diminutive stack of “pancakes,” strips of “bacon” and a sunny-side-up “egg”) are a treasure on their own. Wholesome and affordable sandwiches, a staggering menu of “create your own cupcake” options, and daily specials are just the icing on the cake. (Alibi Staff, June 16, 2011)

Gold Street Caffè

218 Gold SW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 765-1633

Mon 7 am-4 pm. Tue-Sat 7 am-9 pm Sun 7 am-4 pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinner

4.07 rating (31 votes)
Gold Street was cool before Downtown was cool, but now that Downtown is cool, Gold Street is even cooler. Open for breakfast and lunch (and now dinner service on the weekends!), this charming café has pet-friendly sidewalk seating and serves up a menu of homey breakfast favorites like waffles and sophisticated lunches. It shouldn’t surprise you that the place with the Best Bacon in our restaurant poll also makes a memorable BLT. If you’re really lucky, they’ll have freshly baked cupcakes or a slice of flourless chocolate cake waiting for dessert. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Gravy

725 Central Ave NE (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
242-4299
Cuisine: American, Diner

4.56 rating (9 votes)
After two years of preparation, Gravy has finally opened in the old Milton’s building. The place looks great, with a distinctly swank take on the classic diner aesthetic, and the menu follows suit. Multiple varieties of pancakes are offered for breakfast, along with huevos rancheros and an eggy pot pie. Dinner is comfort food-oriented—think meatloaf, fried chicken and chicken fried steak—and there’s plenty of beer (locally brewed and otherwise) on tap with which to wash it down. Try the fried green tomatoes! (Alibi Staff, December 17, 2014)

Holy Cow

700 Central Ave SE (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102

11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Thursday; 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday; 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: American

4.29 rating (18 votes)
The site of Bob’s Fish and Chips on Central has been reincarnated as one of the best burger joints in town. The NM grass-fed Holy Cow burger comes on a brioche bun, while an ahi tuna sandwich, veggie club and dinner salads offer plenty of choices for bovine-averse diners. Beer and wine, plus shakes, malts and floats, are available to complete the sacrament. (Alibi Staff, September 1, 2011)

Ibiza at Hotel Andaluz

Sun-Thu 4pm-10pm Fri-Sat 4pm-1am (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late

3.33 rating (9 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 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

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

2.9 rating (20 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. (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

3.14 rating (14 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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This restaurant has already gone through one name (it used to be called BRGR,) but its mission remains the same: to provide gourmet, locally sourced hamburgers to Albuquerque’s Downtown. In addition to your typical beef burger, Q also offers up some exotic meat options (yak and kangaroo are both in the special rotation), a fine selection of salads, and a huge list of local beers to wash down your meal. (Alibi Staff, May 28, 2014)
