This rooftop bar offers a menu of small plates and specialty cocktails to relax with after a long day at work. The food here is fine, but the house-created cocktails—such as the the spicy and refreshing cucumber-jalapeño margarita—make a visit to Ibiza well worth the trip.

Mon: 11am-6pm Tue-Sun: 11am-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Pop Fizz’ Mexican-style paletas are made with real fruit and organic cane sugar for a frozen treat experience you can’t find in a box at the store. You won’t find high fructose corn syrup here, but you will discover Grandma Alvarez’ horchata and limeade recipes, as well as exotic paleta creations like guanabana, mimosa and, our favorite, avocado.

Sister

407 Central Ave NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
505-242-4900
sisterthebar.com
The cavernous, ground-floor counterpart to Anodyne, Sister is a space tailor-made for happenings. This is a perfect spot for enjoying a quiet dip into the vast draft beer selection with your comrades after work or boogying to the multitude of live bands that occupy its stage nearly every night. Don’t miss the Sunday brunch—our favorite hangover cure is the breakfast burger.

Taquería Mexico

415 Lomas Blvd NE (Downtown)

(505) 242-3445
www.taqueriamexicoabq.com/i…
Mon-Sat: 7am-7pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
This brightly colored taco shop is always busy. Despite the constant stream of hard hats, auto mechanics and high-heeled office workers, Taquería Mexico somehow stays spotlessly clean. And the food is great! Their tortas come on big, hot rolls stuffed with your choice of meats (try the shredded beef), lettuce, jack cheese, tomato, mayonnaise and avocado. The big, juicy burgers are fantastic, as are the burritos, the caldo de res and the soft corn tortilla tacos (of course).

Albuquerque - Fairgrounds

Burque’s Burgers and Dawgs

2025 Ridgecrest Dr SE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM 87108
505-508-2630
burquesburgers.com
Mon-Sat: 10:30am-3:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Lunch
Cuisine: American, Mexican
This was a super-long dog drenched in chile and cheese (I went with their red chile blend, but you are offered the choice) and wrapped in bacon. Add deep frying to the mix, and there’s literally no way this could be bad. There was a huge upfront flavor to it, and the hot dog was high quality. It was an enormous pile-on of ingredients that was intimidating to approach, but once you dug in, it was hard to stop. The chile in particular was excellent and really elevated the rest of the hot dog with just the right amount of heat.
Alibi recommends: The elote. Seriously. This’ll pop your eyes out.
Vibe: Relaxed casual dining.

Open 24/7 (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
While the food is hit or miss here, you can always count on some space for quiet contemplation whether you’re inside or at the drive-thru at 3pm or 3am. The Mexican food is slightly more consistent but the gyros plate is always good.

Cielito Lindo

Monday-Sunday 8 am-9 pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Cielito Lindo is named for a love song that is considered to be the unofficial national anthem of Mexico. While it may not be completely authentic Mexican seafood, it is terribly wonderful and a popular hidden gem with in-the-know locals. We recommend the medium oysters, they’re delectable.

Helen’s Bakery

1014 San Pedro Dr NE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM
You could miss the decayed pink, green and purple cross that adorns Helen’s Bakery just north of Lomas in the blink of an eye but there you’ll find rows of Mexican pastries, cookies and rolls tucked away inside glass cases or cooling on a big metal rack up front. If you don’t speak Spanish, here’s how it all works: Walk up to the register, grab a pair of tongs and a cafeteria tray and load up on sweet treats. A little café serves savory Mexican snacks like tacos and chicharrones by the pound. As for meals, try the menudo.

This southern Mexican food-inspired eatery has a plate for all palates. While our favorites are the oxtail and al pastor tacos, there are vegetarian and vegan friendly options, as well. If you’re not exactly in the mood for tacos, go to their Southern room and look over their unique collection of ice creams—we highly recommend the green tea cucumber variety.

Mariscos and northern Mexican cuisine with a unique flair. Various ceviche-like dishes feature raw shrimp of unusually firm deliciousness. The epic Charola De Mariscos platter (fried, steamed and raw) must be seen to be believed. Don’t fill up on just the chips.

The Shop

2933 Monte Vista Blvd NE (Nob Hill)
Albuquerque NM 87106
433-2795
Tue-Sun: 8am-3pm Dinner: Fri-Sat: 5-9:30pm Closed Monday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
It’s in a location that has seen quite a few restaurants come and go over the years, but The Shop is making a real go of it. With an emphasis on high quality, locally sourced foods, the menu here covers breakfast (try the pancakes and the chilaquiles) and lunch (we suggest a cubano or chicken and waffles) with equal finesse and attention to detail.
Alibi recommends: The duck confit hash and the eggs benny in the mornings. At night, get the red chile BBQ ribs.
Vibe: Casual and neighborhood-ish. A great place to run into your friends.

Mon-Sun 11am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinnerOpen Late
New Mexican food in the Garduño’s vein—plus burgers and booze—in a bucolic valley setting. In fact, El Bruno’s does indeed occupy the site (and, one might assume, the demographic) of the former North Valley Garduño’s.

Rincon Del Pollo

9129 Fourth Street NW (North Valley)
Ste A
Albuquerque NM
(505) 890-5925
Mon-Sat: 8am-3pm Sun: 9am-1pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch
A stone’s throw away from Alameda, this bright red and yellow brick building is a haven for pollo sabroso. You can get your chicken dressed in gravy, swimming in red or green chile, or stuffed into a burrito, torta or taco (to name a few); better still, wash it down with a fresh glass of horchata. In a town of too-often lifeless refried beans, Rincon served us the best home-style frijoles we’ve had in a shamefully long time. The chicken soup is mild and thick with rice and chunks of celery, carrot and yellow bell pepper.
