Step back in time for old-fashioned diner food, juke box oldies and atmosphere with a New Mexican twist (incarnate in the hot-and-spicy Frito pie). 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. Voted Best Milkshakes for 2013.

Brainchild of local band The Dirty Novels, the old home of Pearl's Dive has been appropriately rock ’n’ rolled with excellent music, black-clad waitresses and a cool look. There are an impressive number of draft and bottled microbrew beers, which are fan-freaking-tastic on the back patio. While Blackbird recently shut down its kitchen (RIP best sweet potato chips in town), they are still one of the best places in Albuquerque to see an awesome live show and never pay a cover.

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)

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)

Zinc is a delightfully renovated historic space in Nob Hill, reborn as an upscale restaurant serving elegant American food with noticeable French inspiration. Downstairs the wine bar attracts a younger crowd for drinks and music. The happy hour menu, wines by the glass and prices are the best around. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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)

While sometimes toting a party-hard crowd, Monte Vista showcases a diverse group of live musicians. Drinks are affordable, and the beef there is grass-fed, New Mexico-grown and steroid and antibiotic-free, and the cooks at Monte Vista deserve praise for what they do with it. The freshly ground burgers are juicy and big, the steak frites hit the spot, and the music will get you out of your seat. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

The surprising thing about Scalo is that it’s simultaneously more fancy and less expensive than you’d think. It’s just as breezy and classy as ever in its high-ceilinged dining room. All of the bottles on the wine list are half-price on Monday nights, and there’s free, live music in the bar. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

If you’re into meat and motors, you should check this place out. The back half of the building is reserved for customizing motorcycles, while the front half is a rollicking restaurant with a great beer selection and a stage for lively music. The menu revels in heavier fare like burgers and fried chicken. Stop by in the morning for the best-tasting breakfast in Nob Hill. (Alibi Staff, December 6, 2012)

Besides the yummy hamburgers and plentiful beer varieties, it’s also quite exciting to see another good mom ’n’ pop taking root at the lonely intersection of Coors and Montaño. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

St. Clair Vineyards has been operating this bistro to local acclaim since 2005. Two patios and a spacious front, specialty wines and a well-stocked gift shop bring wine festival flair to thirsty Burqueños year-round. Enjoy a glass of Pinot Grigio, and enjoy live music Thursday-Saturday. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Deep-frying may well be a Scottish national pastime, pursued with the same extremist zeal as soccer hooliganism and pub patronage. Sink your teeth into one of the breaded and fried items Two Fools Tavern offers and you'll understand why. This British Isles-style pub is the brainchild of successful restaurateur Tom White (Scalo and Il Vicino). Highlights include perfect fish and chips, buckets of beer, scads of Scotches and Saturday and Sunday brunch with, of course, live Celtic music. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Vernon’s is a swanky underground spot for good eats and high times, delivered speakeasy-style. The dining room is walled with lustrous, ebony adobe, and the tables are clothed in crisp, black and white linens. By the glass or bottle, there’s plenty of quality hooch. The menu is classic steakhouse stuff, with beef tournedos in a silky demi-glace, fresh fish and a damn fine veal Oscar. Check out the Black Diamond Lounge to take in the fancy cocktails and live music. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Zacateca’s is an upscale taco-and-tequila concept, the new baby of Mark Kiffin, whose Santa Fe restaurant The Compound is renowned for its ingredients and artistry. His Pacific rock cod taco is perfectly browned on the outside, juicy on the inside and oozing with glorious fish grease. With the addition of coleslaw and habanero salsa, this is not the taco of anyone’s abuelita. Toast her health with a three-mescal sampler, which comes in terra cotta dishes. Often features live music. (Alibi Staff, May 3, 2012)
