It was our good fortune to have seen Triple D the day before going to Albuquerque. The place is a little dingy because of the road construction, but do not let that stop you. Food is delicious, the brisket was outstanding. The sides were great...More

Delicious BBQ! Great sides and they also have burgers, and different types of hot dogs. Not priced too high and they have homemade drinks as well.

I'm aware that this place is one of the recommended eats off of 'Diners Drive-in's and Dives' although at the first time of going I had no idea - I was just looking for a place to eat near where I was staying at UNM....More
