This is a favorite, must stop for me when visiting my sister who lives nearby in Sandia Park. We had lunch there today and with a desire for green chile I ordered their green chile cheeseburger. Well, many of the chiles were red, a little hot but delicious! I'd like them hotter but most guests wouldn't. Great burger for under... More

Your choices for fine dining are limited over on the East Mountain, however, The Greenside Cafe, which comes highly recommended, is an outstanding choice any time of the day or evening. The chef /owner takes special pride in his food and establishment. The restaurant is located not that far off of Rt.40 going north on historic Rt.14. 'The Turquoise Trail.'... More

Good lunch. One had a burger, perfectly cooked with a decent bun. The other had Steak Quesadilla which was also prepared nice and delicious. Great selection of beers too. We recommend this restaurant. Thanks for reading. The Bike Chaplain

Stopped in for a quick lunch, the place was recommended as well as the dish (macaroni) and neither were worth it. I was starving and short on time otherwise I would have said something.

I ate ate the Greenside Cafe for the second time this week, and for the second time I cleaned my plate. This time I ordered the "Sloppy Taco Salad" which was delicious even if it was a bit short on vegetables other than romaine lettuce. Last time I had an Asian inspired noodle dish with a fabulous peanut sauce that... More

If you live in an area with few choices in eateries, like Cedar Crest, you will be tempted to rate this place more highly. I'm going to rate it as it compares with restaurants in general. It was recommended to me by a friend, so we stopped in. It was late lunchtime, the restaurant was about 2/3 full inside, although... More

We stopped here as a result of reading the ratings in Trip Advisor--had an enjoyable lunch. We had the taco salad and the fish and chips--both were tasty. The service was good and friendly as well. It seemed to be one of the best places to stop on the Turqouise trail to Santa Fe, from what we noticed of other... More

Our group had 5 but only tried 2 different selections---two had artichoke and herb frittatas with fresh goat cheese and salad with homemade dressings and the other 3 ordered Sangre de Cristo sandwich (twist...

Stopped here 'cause Madrid was too crowded to park or move (some kind of 4th of July celebration going on). I loved my half Sangre de Cristo, Greenside's take on a Monte Cristo with the delicious calabicitas soup. I try soups everywhere I eat and this one was really really good. The waitress was superb, with just the right amount... More

We stopped here after a day trip in the Jemez Mountain area. The sweet pea hummus was a refreshing version of what can be a boring appetizer. Chicken fried steak was huge and well-seasoned. Loved the space with high ceilings and a clean, contemporary feel. Outdoor patio that welcomes dogs is very nice. Not sure why Albuquerque hasn't discovered this... More
