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 vastly more women than men filling the tables, though that’s more 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.
