We ate here on the recommendation of a friend that it is really kid friendly, which it is. Kids under 6 get a finger plate free, which is awesome. The rice that is served with the finger plate was much too spicy for my kid. The server was super friendly. The service was a bit slow and it took longer... More

Lite bite beef enchiladas with a fried egg can not be beat. What more can you ask for when in Albuquerque, NM.

Read about this place on a blog about food in NM and thought we'd try it out. Great food. We had the burrito de Eduardo with green chile with whole beans as the side. Really good and the service was pretty darn good as well.

Our family has enjoyed this family owned restaurant since 1980. The food is prepared fresh every day. The service is excellent and the expanded business hours makes it much easier to get in during peak hours. The menu offers you a great selection of traditional New Mexican food and you can always build your own special plate with a variety... More

We went on a Saturday night during Balloon Fiesta, so there was about a 20 minute wait, but dinner was well worth it. Amazing salsa served warm, crispiest and most flavorful rellenos I have ever had, and even the beans were good (I'm not usually a fan of beans). My guys thoroughly enjoyed their enchiladas and build-your-own combo plate. Our... More

Really good Mexican food. Hatch chili salsa really hot so a little goes a long way. My husband had the roast beef burrito and he thought it was excellent. I had a combo platter with a red chili tamale, cheese enchilada plus a beef taco. All were excellent! The waitstaff very very attentive...Give this restaurant a try I don't think... More

The selections are dependably delicious, always beautifully presented and the prices are good. The service is outstanding, restaurant is clean, and the size of the restaurant and expanded hours has really helped with being able to serve customers well. We also like the expanded days the restaurant is open. Staff is excellent and we enjoy eating here regularly.
