You have to love a place that makes its own hot dogs. Properly known as Vienna sausages, they're just one of more than 25 different kinds of sausages made at this 35+ year-old neighborhood shop. Look for house-smoked hams and bacon, several kinds of Black Forest ham, roast beef, pastrami and European cheeses. If you have to wait in line, use your time to scan the shelves for gooseberry jam, German pickles, Norwegian breads and other Northern European delicacies. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Amadeo’s Pizza and Subs

3109 Coors Blvd SW (Westside)
Albuquerque NM

Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.11 rating (9 votes)
You can bank on getting good pie here, and Amadeo's makes them up to 26 inches across. The subs rate just as high. Toasted rolls, baked locally, are stuffed with your choice of meat (salami, ham, meatballs and so on), cheese and veggies. The meatballs are totally boss. Not too heavy with an almost silky texture, they come drowned in a spicy tomato sauce and smothered in mozzarella cheese. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Antiquity Restaurant

112 Romero St NW (Old Town)
Albuquerque NM 87104
(505) 247-3545
Mon-Thu 5pm-9pm Fri-Sat 5pm-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Dinner

3.31 rating (54 votes)
It’s a classy kind of joint, this Antiquity; tablecloths, waiters with bow ties and fancified French food (including seafood) that will push you toward ecstasy even as it drains your pocketbook. But it’s unmistakably Albuquerque too. For one thing it’s in an ancient Old Town hacienda, the kind with an uneven floor, two-foot-thick walls at every doorway and rooms that ramble back farther than you would ever guess from the outside. For another, the blue-jeaned may mix freely with the formally attired in that wonderful New Mexican way that so annoys the Easterners among us. (Alibi Staff, October 4, 2012)

Brickyard Pizza

2216 Central Ave SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 262-2216
Mon-Thurs: 11am-1:30am Fri-Sat: noon-2:30am Sun: noon-midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

4.36 rating (77 votes)
Brickyard Pizza is known for fast slices and beers on the cheap. It's the only full bar directly across from UNM, making it the prime watering hole for your post-theater and post- or pre-class needs. Grab a pie, sip on a beer and be sure to check out their open mic on Tuesday nights, which undoubtedly hosts the city’s most hiddenly talented folks. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Carraro's Pizza & Joe’s Place

108 Vassar Dr SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 268-2300
Mon-Fri: 11:30am-2am Sat: 2pm-2am Sun: noon-midnight (hours can change without notice)

Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.36 rating (90 votes)
In the front, it's a standard restaurant laid out with a small bar and big window facing the street. Travel a short way through a blacklit hall and enter the kind of divey neighborhood hangout this city needs more of, complete with TVs, a jukebox, blacklight alien posters, a ping pong table, air hockey and arcade games. Though the entire menu is available no matter where you choose to spend your time, you can't go wrong with the twisty-crust pizza. Its foundation is really more braided golden bread than crust, and it's available by the slice or the pie. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Cheese and Coffee

2679 Louisiana NE (Uptown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 883-1226
Mon-Fri: 10am-3:00pm Sat: 10:30am-2:00pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Lunch

4.33 rating (15 votes)
We love this strange little place with aggressively retro décor, like super ’70s wood paneling. Cool. Plus, they serve New York deli stuff like bagels with lox and cream cheese, and a club with dill Havarti on rye bread, as well as a selection of German favorites. Our favorite option is the salad trio—you get to pick from Caesar, Greek, apple Waldorf, pasta, potato, fruit, tuna, chicken or egg salads, and it comes with a roll. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

DaVinci’s Gourmet Pizza

2904 Indian School NE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 275-2722

Nearby Theater: SUB Theater (See Film Times)
Cuisine: Pizza

4.16 rating (25 votes)
Can delivery pizza be elevated to a work of art? The respondents to 2007’s Best of Burque Restaurants poll sure seem to think so—DaVinci’s was voted No. 1 in the Best Comfort Food and Best Undiscovered Gem categories. You can get your "canvas" covered in any number of gourmet toppings, from ricotta cheese to roasted red potatoes. Or get your pie festooned in pepperoni. It’s great any way you slice it. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Dion’s Pizza

4717 Central Ave NE (Upper Nob Hill)
Albuquerque NM 87108
(505) 265-6919
Sun-Thurs: 10:30am-10pm Fri-Sat: 10:30am-11pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.58 rating (19 votes)
Besides having the Best Pizza, according to past Best of Burque Restaurants polls, Dion's also has a wonderful selection of salads—particularly the Greek or any of the “gourmet” salads with spring-mix greens—sandwiches (the pastrami is especially good) and out-of-this-world house ranch dressing. The pizza is made fresh, and the folks at Dion’s have had over 30 years to perfect their unique Albuquerque take on pizza pie. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Farina Pizzeria & Wine Bar

510 Central Ave SE (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 243-0130
Mon: 11am-9pm Tues-Fri: 11am-10pm Sat: 5-10pm Sun: 5-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Pizza, Fine Dining

4.08 rating (110 votes)
Across Edith from the Artichoke Café, Farina’s proximity to some of the most established fine dining in Albuquerque isn't an accident. Farina is the punked-up younger sibling of jazzy Artichoke Café, and it brings a tantalizingly direct message to the neighborhood: pizza, beer and wine, and all of it damn good. Sharp, concise and to the point, with 20 superb choices offered by the glass or bottle. Farina’s wine list is straightforward and focused. The bar is comfortable and every wine is perfectly matched to the kitchen’s chic pizzeria offerings. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

French Riviera Bakery

4208 Fourth Street NW (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM 87107
(505) 343-0112
Tues-Fri: 7am-2:30pm Sat: 7am-12:30pm Closed Sunday & Monday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch
Nearby Theater: Century Rio (See Film Times)

4.58 rating (47 votes)
Roll down your window next time you drive down Fourth Street and try to resist the smell of baking bread that emanates from the French Riviera Bakery. Sure, you can buy a cream puff here, but it’s the bread that makes this place exceptional. Your fear of carbohydrates will melt away as you bite into flaky crust and the chewy inside of a round boule, leaving you only with smudges of flour clinging to your chin and nose. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Giovanni’s Pizzeria

921 San Pedro Dr SE (Southeast)
Albuquerque NM 87108
(505) 255-1233
Mon-Thurs:11am-9pm Fri: 11am-10pm Sat: noon-10pm Sun: 4-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
Cuisine: Pizza

4.18 rating (26 votes)
Just thinking about the pizza here is enough to send our insulin levels into overdrive. The authentically crisp-yet-floppy New York-style thin crust is a perfect foundation for garlicky tomato sauce and a mountain of toppings. Buy it by the slice (just $2.50, plus 55 cents for additional toppings), as a pie (12, 15 or 18 inches) or Sicilian style (a rectangle with eight big slices). There are also mammoth baked calzones, rolls and stromboli. They’re all stuffed to the gills with delicious ingredients—which is exactly how you’ll leave if you eat one. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Golden Crown Panadería

1103 Mountain NW (Old Town)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 243-2424
Tues-Sat: 7am-8pm Sun: 10am-8pm Closed Monday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner

3.71 rating (33 votes)
Walking into the Golden Crown Panadería, you have the sense of entering someone’s home. Countertops flow over with pan dulce, bolillos (Mexican hard rolls) and Appaloosa bread (dark and light rye swirled). A glass-fronted case proudly displays fruit empanadas and delicious flaky dessert flautas (in lemon and apricot) coated in powered sugar. Golden Crown's green chile bread is made with tomatoes, parmesan cheese, cilantro, onions and spices and decorated with the design of a coyote howling at the moon. And there’s fresh-baked pizza. And coffee drinks, and fresh-picked salads grown hydroponically just inside the front door. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Ibiza at Hotel Andaluz

125 2nd St NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
Sun-Thu 4pm-10pm Fri-Sat 4pm-1am (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late

3.45 rating (11 votes)
This rooftop bar, sister of the fancier (and pricier) MÁS Tapas y Vino, offers a breezy patio, a menu of small plates and specialty cocktails perfect for a night when you want to feel fancy or a little more autonomous. The food is good, but the house-created cocktails—like the spicy-yet-refreshing cucumber-jalapeño margarita—make it well worth a visit. (Alibi Staff, October 10, 2012)

Il Vicino

11225 Montgomery NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87111
(505) 271-0882
Sun-Thurs: 11am-10pm Fri-Sat: 11am-11pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: High Ridge (See Film Times)

3.61 rating (42 votes)
Il Vicino’s thin-crusted, gourmet-topped pizzas are perennial favorites among Alibi readers, but the house-brewed beers are equally popular. Order at the register and a server brings the food to your table, making weekday lunches speedy. The open kitchen gives you something to stare at while you wait. Stop in for a quick lunch or a late afternoon microbrew at one of the patio tables. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Itsa Italian Ice

215 Phoenix Ave NW (at Second Street) (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM 87107
(505) 268-2560
Tues- Sat: 11am-7:30 pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

4.94 rating (9 votes)
Itsa Italian Ice is an old favorite for many Burqueños. Originally located on Lomas years ago, Itsa was—and is—for kids and grown-ups alike. Diners can choose from several fruity flavors like cantaloupe, lemon, cherry, watermelon, black raspberry, lime, grape or banana, as well as other flavors like chocolate or "blue moon" (cotton candy). On the hot side, there are hamburgers, dogs, and a Philly cheese steak that’s tender and visibly marbled, made with steak that actually tastes like steak. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

JC’s New York Pizza Department

215 Central Ave NW (Downtown)

4.67 rating (97 votes)
Get your late-night pizza fix and a pint on Downtown’s favorite patio. It makes a perfect vantage point for people-watching on the weekends. The back room is stocked with vintage ’80s tabletop arcade games, several beers on tap, flat-screen TVs and a discreet outdoor patio. Just wander back through the parking lot to the north of the existing NYPD, or spread out in the expanded front room. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Joe S. Sausage and Ravioli

1900 4th Street (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM 87107
(505) 688-0445
Tues-Fri: 11am-4pm Sat: 11am-2pm *These are only formal hours of operation, call ahead for more flexible hours. (hours can change without notice)

4.45 rating (22 votes)
This little North Valley specialty store turns out three things—sausage, ravioli and pierogi. You know it’s got to be good. An amazing and constantly changing variety of flavors are made fresh every day by Joe S. Sausage himself, which he freezes and sells for his loyal customers to take home. Plop the raviolis in some simmering water for a few minutes and they cook up perfectly tender. Serve alongside Joe’s sizzling-fresh sausage and you’ve got the fastest, most delicious “homemade” meal you’ve ever tasted. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

La Crêpe Michel

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: French

4.61 rating (23 votes)
Navigating the labyrinthine alleyways that comprise Old Town should be rewarded duly with a fine lunch. Savor the soupe de poisson , follow it with a salade maison , then choose between a brunch, lunch or dinner menu complete with a quiche du jour. Skip the turquoise jewelry altogether and just go have the dessert crêpes aux fraises or poire belle-hélène . Regret will be a thing of the past with a dish of coupe glacée , and why regret anything in the first place? We don’t. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Le Chantilly Pastry Shop

Albuquerque NM 87110
(505) 293-7057
Mon-Sat: 7am-6pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

2.88 rating (25 votes)
If the café’s mural of French street life doesn't quite make you forget that you're in an Albuquerque strip mall, closing your eyes and tasting a flaky blueberry cheese croissant might. If the croissant doesn't work, try some petits fours. Le Chantilly has been voted Best French Pastries in Albuquerque, after all. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Le Paris French Bakery

1441 Eubank NE (Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 299-4141

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

2.96 rating (51 votes)
The baguettes at this little Northeast Heights storefront and café are phenomenal—many of the city’s best restaurants use Le Paris as their house bread. Not familiar with French food? The friendly staff will happily steer you in the direction of one of the light breakfast and lunch offerings. Don’t skip anything involving chocolate. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
