Server was pleasant, efficient, accurate and helpful. The food was good and served quickly. The carrot cake was HUGE and delicious - plenty to share. Parking was easy and prices are good. We were not rushed or made to feel uncomfortable with our extra long time at the table visiting.

Located near Kirtland AFB, gets lots of business from the Air Force and very popular with senior citizens. I've been there many times and really enjoy the chicken fried steak covered with green chile sauce vice gravy. My only negative is that the chairs have metal arms that hit the sides of your thighs, so if wearing tactical pants with... More

The site location is across the street from a majorVeterans hospital which is the basis of the clientele. They do breakfast and lunch well. We arrived near noontime and waited in line for tables. It was worth the wait. Our intent was conversation among friends who had been separated for a few years. Desserts and hot chocolate were excellent. Very... More

Great service & friendly wait staff. Ordered the Copper Canyon grilled turkey even though it was not fresh roasted turkey breast. It was grilled nicely with green chile, bacon and non descript cheese. It was delivered with cold french fries and I requested a hot portion quickly. Well, I waited 20 minutes while I ate my sandwich and no hot... More

Copper Canyon has been around a long time, especially on Gibson Blvd where biusinesses pop up and close down like a revolving door. Don't expect anything fancy, just good food at a great price. Whether is breakfast that's served all day to steak or any of their delicious sandwiches, you can't help but feel a bit of nostalgia as you... More

After having my lab work done at the VA, I was ready for breakfast and we found Copper Canyon Cafe. Service was excellent, the waitress always had a smile on her face and my coffee cup never went empty. It was nice to find a cafe that had a cook that knew how to cook eggs over easy. Don't pass...

Was staying overnight in Albuquerque, did a quick search on TripAdvisor for a local breakfast option and the Copper Canyon Cafe was close by. Thank goodness! Breakfast was delicious and servings were generous. Service was very good. Atmosphere a little dated & dull, but the food more than makes up for it. I had the Santa Fe Skillet with sour... More

The Copper Canyon restaurant located on Gibson Ave was suggested to my wife and myself by my longtime brother-in-law and also a long time Albuquerque resident. We were immediately impressed by the quick service and smiling face that accompanied it. One glance at the menu and I knew that the variety of food offered should please almost anyone....When our orders... More
