Great place for lunch

The atmosphere in this historic adobe house is the best. Friendly people, fireplaces going on cold days, and authentic New Mexican food. Wonderful green chile cheeseburger - my favorite. Did I mention the amazing selection of beers? Everything a beer lover would want.

Recently a friend who likes New Mexican style food (sopapillas, green and red chili burritos etc.) invited me to join him at Perea's Bar. It is, like many of the places in Corrales, on the "funky" side but quite comfortable. We were there for lunch and my friend chose several small orders and I chose a burger. I am not... More

This is as authentic Corrales as you can get. Perea's has been owned by the same family for several generations. When I arrive in town my friends meet me here for margaritas and authentic New Mexican food. We share a deluxe nacho and John, the current owner, just keeps bringing us food and drinks. There is a fireplace in the... More

As most Corraleans will tell you, the best place for a Mexican food lunch in Corrales is Parea's. This is essentially a bar up front - an old style, wooden, neighborhood bar. The restaurant area is back behind it - a reasonable - not too large - room with a small patio area off of it. All this is set... More

I'm in the 13th generation of a New Mexico family that has exacting expectations of New Mexican food and the traditions practiced in its preparation. Perea's is the rare restaurant that serves New Mexican food in the classic form. Their chile (red and green) is full-bodied and flavorful, their sopapillas have a nice light flake over the cooked dough and... More

We have seen this place for years but didn't realize it was a restaurant. We thought it was just a bar. We were hungry for red chile and we were driving through Corrales and we saw alot of cars parked in the back and we thought we would check it out and to our surprise it was a restaurant, too...

I am a New Mexico native, born 35 miles from the chile capitol of the world, Hatch, NM. I've eaten Southwestern food all over the state and Perea's is the very best. Absolutely the best red chile I have ever tasted. The carne adovada is to die for as are the flat enchiladas. The margaritas are made from scratch and... More
