Apparently authentic New Mexican not Tex Mex. Large portions. Ordered beef brisket enchiladas with side of chili.. Very good but a bit on the spicy side for my tastes.

My wife had the stuffed Sopapillas with chicken and I had the beef brisket burrito. As usual we had a great dinner, the food was prepared fresh and flavorful. This is one of our standard stops for dinner when visiting the Albuquerque area.

Sadie's often is mentioned among the "top" Mexican restaurants in Albuquerque, a city of many such. Personally, I found their food pretty good, but clearly not in league with the city's best.

Everything I heard was true! Margaritas were great! The house salsa with chips was tooooo hit for most people! I was surprised, but adapted and liked it! The tamale and enchilada was tasty. The enchilada sauce was a bit pedestrian. Mine is better from scratch....More
