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)

Nestled into half of the space formerly occupied by Vivace, B2B Bistronomy is a small restaurant with a straightforward goal: to serve the best damn local-beef hamburgers and microbrewed beers around. With eight burgers to choose from—including the delectable Nawlins with blue cheese—and 33 local beers on tap, the joint should be a beacon for anyone with a carnivorous appetite.

The Barley Room

Albuquerque NM 87111

Mon-Sat: 11am-2am Sun: 11am-midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: High Ridge (See Film Times)

4.34 rating (126 votes)
The Barley Room is a watering hole in the far Northeast Heights that fills patrons up with live music, lots of libations and a surprisingly ample menu. Snack on bar-friendly fried things (say yes to the sweet potato fries!), or have a proper meal with burgers, salads, pasta, New Mexican dishes and a few grilled meat and fish entrées. There’s a palpable sports bar feel to the place, but a diverse clientele keeps this bar/grill comfortable for just about everyone. The kitchen stays open until midnight every night; go ahead and linger. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)


3.43 rating (35 votes)
Parked on Harvard’s prime stretch of UNM territory, Bricklight Dive is tailor-made for the University crowd: a short, inexpensive menu of Italian “street food” (lots of bread-based snacks with toppings; some nice, filling salads) and local beers for just a few bucks. The people-watching on the patio is excellent if you can can get a spot. From the same folks behind Q Burger in Downtown. (Alibi Staff, August 23, 2011)

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 and Italian Restaurant & Joe’s Place

Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.34 rating (89 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)

Casa de Benavidez

8032 Fourth Street NW (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 897-7493

Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinner
Cuisine: New Mexican

4.09 rating (101 votes)
One of the most beautifully green patios in town. Benavidez is way the heck up there in the North Valley, but if you’re looking for a good breakfast burrito or simply someplace to sit and have some chips, queso and a margarita, this place is worth your time. For dessert, the flan is cinnamony and good, and so are the natillas. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

3.52 rating (89 votes)
Ah, Cervantes. It represents Albuquerque as we like to think of it: unbound by trends, adorned in velvet paintings, sometimes sketchy but mostly just full of good people. Its 1970s-style dining room is the perfect backdrop for ordering timeless, home-cooked New Mexican food and eating until you’re stuffed. Be sure to sit in the bar section and take advantage of their jukebox to take in the full mood and energy of this Albuquerque gem. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Chama River Brewing Company

Nearby Theater: Century Rio (See Film Times)

2.06 rating (129 votes)
Chama River has a great beer selection, including a bevy of their own brews. The food is approachable, often locally sourced and delicious American stuff that, coincidentally, goes pretty damn well with beer. Say yes to yeast. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Corrales Bistro Brewery

4908 Corrales Rd (Corrales)
Corrales NM
(505) 897-1036

3.11 rating (63 votes)
Fritz Allen opened the Corrales Bistro Brewery five years ago next door to his Hanselmann Pottery shop in the Corrales Artisan Center. The menu is full of inventive appetizers, salads, wraps, sandwiches and burgers. Roasted garlic and feta bread dippers are replete with crumbled feta, olive tapenade, balsamic dipping sauce and toasted pita. Hand-cut fries and an assortment of sides complete the mix, with good brews to wash it all down. Stop by for the almost-daily live music, and you’ll feel right at home. (Alibi Staff, September 1, 2011)

The County Line BBQ

Albuquerque NM
(505) 856-7477

Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.17 rating (94 votes)
Everyone loves good, old-fashioned barbecue, and you’ll find heaps of it at the County Line. It has everything you could want: sweet corn on the cob, coleslaw, brown-sugar beans, you name it. Oh, and meat, meat, meat. The baby back ribs are especially good, as is the homemade hickory barbecue sauce. Wash it down with a pint and phenomenal city views, and you’ll be feeling right at home on the range. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The Cowgirl BBQ

319 S. Guadalupe St. (Santa Fe)
Santa Fe NM 87501
(505) 982-2565
www.cowgirlsantafe.com
Mon-Sat 11 am - 12 am Sun 11 am - 11 pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: UA DeVargas (See Film Times)

4.2 rating (91 votes)
For years, Cowgirl has been our most-visited restaurant in the capital. It's easy to find, there are always enough tables (when the sun sets, sit out on the large patio), the people-watching is great, and the food keeps coming until midnight. Plus, the barbecue and Southern-style food is reasonably priced. Do not miss the Frito pie: a single-serving bag of Fritos, split open and topped with chili, onions and cheese. Wash it down with a cold beer or a giant soda. This is a place for lunch and dinner, but you can also get simple breakfast burritos to go. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The Cube BBQ

1520 Central Ave SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 243-0023
www.thecuberestaurant.com
Tues-Sat: 11am-10pm Sun: 11am-8pm Closed Monday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.48 rating (130 votes)
While The Cube’s presentation is upscale, the portions you’ll get are of standard barbecue proportions, unlikely to send you home hungry. Ribs, chicken, brisket, links and pulled pork are hickory-wood-smoked and prepared with a spice rub (“dry”) or drenched in tangy, smoky, sweet, acidic sauce (“wet”). Both versions are excellent. Hot dog lovers will have plenty to chew on with Chicago dogs, bacon-wrapped Guadalajara dogs and 505 dogs (bacon, avocado and green chile). And with mapley candied yams, mac and cheese and skin-on fries, the sides at The Cube are hardly side notes. To wash down your meal, there’s a wine and beer list and a hefty menu of house-made mousses, pies and muffins for dessert. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Draft Station

1720 Central Ave SW (Old Town)
Albuquerque NM 87104
(505) 247-0193

3.3 rating (60 votes)
This is Chama River’s beer-centric younger brother, and it’s poised to make an impact on the local pub scene. Naturally, plenty of Chama brews are on tap, but the lineup also features selections from other Albuquerque and Santa Fe breweries. Our favorite is the Scotia, a strong, sweet Scottish ale that’s perfect for sipping while you watch the Central traffic go by from the Draft Station’s patio. (Alibi Staff, August 27, 2014)

El Patio de Albuquerque

142 Harvard SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 268-4245
www.elpatiodealbuquerque.com
Mon-Sun: 11am-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: New Mexican

3.28 rating (74 votes)
A can’t-miss New Mexican spot steeped in lived-in UNM area charm. There are amazing beans, potatoes and, of course, sopaipillas. And some really tasty green chile chicken enchiladas, all of which are complemented by a cerveza or a wine cocktail. And live guitar music. And, yum. If there’s Frito pie on the specials board, get it.

El Pinto Restaurant & Cantina

Meals Served: BrunchLunchDinner
Cuisine: New Mexican

4.04 rating (97 votes)
With a refreshing outside eating area, an oil painting of a Shih Tzu and an overall gorgeous North Valley location, El Pinto is famously known for their margaritas and award-winning jarred salsa. Go for brunch, lunch or dinner, and be sure to try a little flan. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Elaine’s

3503 Central Ave NE (Nob Hill)
Albuquerque NM 87106
433-4782
Dinner only, 5pm-10:30pm, Tuesday-Saturday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Dinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
Cuisine: French, Italian

3.14 rating (65 votes)
First off, you might want to dress up a little so you don’t feel like a total boob in Elaine’s intimate, hip/luxe dining room. Secondly, make sure you’ve got a full wallet before going in—we’re talking $55 a person minimum. And finally, ready your palate for some spectacular food. We recommend the yellow fin tuna crudo or the Pat LaFrieda tartare, but really, it’s hard to go wrong at a place like this. (Alibi Staff, January 28, 2014)

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 (109 votes)
Farina’s gluten-free pizza is soft and chewy, unlike a lot of its competitors inedible variations of gluten-free offerings. Its menu hosts a variety of indulgent and rich salads. With ingredients like goat cheese, pine nuts and beets, Farina knows how to serve up an excellent meal and offers an excellent selection of craft beer and wine. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Fat Squirrel Pub & Grille

3755 Southern SE (Rio Rancho)
Rio Rancho NM 87124
(505) 994-9004
Mon-Sun: 11am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

3.14 rating (84 votes)
From the same folks behind Turtle Mountain, Fat Squirrel is an English-style pub and full-service restaurant in the heart of Rio Rancho. Featuring beyond-flavorful American fare and some traditional favorites from across the pond (corned beef 'n' cabbage year-round anyone?), Fat Squirrel's menu is as vast as its extensive wine and beer selection. The intensely juicy burger, which you can customize to your liking, is one of the best in town. Generous portions and reasonable prices too. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Flying Star Café

4026 Rio Grande Blvd NW (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 344-6714

Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Movies West (See Film Times)

4.19 rating (79 votes)
Flying Star’s blueberry buttermilk pancakes are a guaranteed silver bullet for your behemoth-sized sweet tooth. They’re friggin’ enormous, fluffy and filling. Throw in a side of green chile turkey sausage and a beautiful North Valley patio, and your crudo is history. Or come back in the evening and sample the new lineup of burgers, which you can wash down with a beer. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
