We came here with a very large party for an anniversary celebration. We made reservations ahead of time, and we were sat out in the patio, which was perfect because the small children could run and play out of the way of wait staff and other customers. The chips here are fantastic, homemade and delicious. All of the food is very traditionally New Mexican and Fresh and amazingly tasty. The wait staff was great and the atmosphere is even better! If you have never been here before, put it on your list to do in the Albuquerque area! Yum!!!

Great dinner. Sat in the patio and tried not to fill up on guacamole and chips. The service was superb and the food was good. Loved my introduction to Tex-mex good. I also liked eatting outside and with the gans you didn’t normally be the heAt. We also got the chicken. I always order some thing I cannot pronounce. It was a great to go for a special meal

The patio is shady and very comfortable.
The huge trees and flowers make this spot one of the best recommended places for outside dining.
The guacamole is fabulous!!
They are famous for the steaks which we will try next time.
For margaritas and guacamole it was super.

If you're looking for a great outdoor venue to have some Mexican food this is a good place to go. Unfortunately their food is not the best, it's hit-and-miss. Have a better places to go for Mexican food put the patio really is worth the trip!

There are many more options around Albuquerque for good New Mexican food and this is more for the visitor and the atmophere it presents. On the expensive side but over all the food is good but not excellent! Just too expensive.
