I'm getting used to these Mom & Pop New Mex joints. Most of them open from--say--7-8AM to 2-3PM, serving hearty breakfasts, and well prepared lunches. This is a local concept that helps to define New Mex cuisine. Not surprisingly, they were packed when we visited,...More

My wife and I never come to Albuquerque without having breakfast at Perea’s. The huevos rancheros (christmas style) are simply the best I’ve ever eaten anywhere. My wife loves their pancakes too. Highly recommended. Friendly, fast service and reasonable prices.

This place is run down, dirty, and has absolutely terrible food. The waitstaff was pleasant but that doesn’t make up for the horrible food. In a town that has exceptional food, it’s amazing that this place is still in business. Hands-down one of the worst...More
