New Mexican Favorites off the the beaten track

We went to Santa Fe from Albuquerque and we wanted to eat in neither place. Bernalillo seemed the perfect place, a small town right off the freeway: convenient. We checked trip advisor, and this looked like a good bet. All the traditional New Mexican foods made wright there. We were surprised... read more

The red wasn't something I'd rush back for, but the green sure was. The shredded beef enchiladas are outstanding and the cheese and chicken enchis are very delicious. Carnitas are great. Free natillas on the weekend let you know you're in a real family place. Worth a stop...worth a return visit!

Underwhelmed by the restaurants at Tamaya Resort we ventured to Abuelita's for lunch and enjoyed it very much. The food was solid with friendly staff. My wife especially liked her "sopapilla burrito"!

Heard about this restaurant from TripAdvisor. I asked my brother if had heard about it and said he eats there all the time. We had a party of seven and they seated us right away. The food was Delish. The price of the entrees was reasonable. I have visited Bernalillo many times and never paid attention to the restaurant. Now... More

All selections are tasty and well seasoned. Prices are reasonable and quality is tops. Staff works hard and is very accommodating. Fajitas are delicious. Zingy salsa as well.

We were just into Albuquerque driving up to Angel Fire and were starving. Found this place by asking Siri which switches you to Trip Advisor (smart!) We got our first dose of yummy New Mexican food in this cute little place that kinda looks like a dive from the outside. Very clean and good inside. Good prices. Wait staff were... More

Abeulita's is a family owned, low on atmosphere, inconsistently open, establishment that just also happens to have the best chile rellenos I believe I've ever eaten--and this is in an area where Chili Relleno is both plentiful and really good. I've also had carnitas and tacos that were exceptional and dinner always comes with a too hot to hold sopapilla... More

Stop in for breakfast, lunch or dinner and enjoy traditional New Mexican fare. The space was bright and cheery where we enjoyed a late breakfast of Huevos Rancheros which were prepared perfectly. Beans, rice and both red and green chili were all delicious which suggests any of their other offerings would be as well received. Take a trip to historic... More
