My Favorite Restaurant in ABQ

I love the smiles and friendly greetings I receive when I come in the door, and the food is great! Tim is one of my best friends. The restaurant is open from 7-2:00 pm.

This place was amazing! Tim was at a speaking engagement in Canada, so unfortunately we didn't get to hug him. However, his spirit was there. Very friendly restaurant, incredibly good food! I highly recommend this Tim's Place. If you aren't super hungry one entree can easily feed two people.

Their motto is no exaggeration. Be sure to get a hug from Tim, the very special, affable young man who co-owns it with his parents. It's essentially a diner and deli that serves breakfast and lunch. There are basic breakfast items, salads, sandwiches, burgers and some Southwestern. The patty melt and french fries were very good, as was the service.... More

I had read about Tim and wanted to support his dream by visiting his restaurant. While the breakfast was tasty, I felt it was very light on protein. I ordered the "Mountain" but without eggs due to a food allergy. The description mentioned the choice of meat and I requested bacon. There were a few small pieces of bacon scattered... More

I have gone to Tim's many times. Twice with new menu. I always loved the food but now forget it. The menu is very limited. No fresh fruit like they used to have. One gets the impression it is changing hands or going out of business. I feel sorry for Tim but I won't be back. Judging from small attendance... More

Ate breakfast here after reading other reviews. The place is very stale as far as décor. The waiters were no where to be found most of the time. We ordered our food and the waiter disappeared in the backroom and never came out again until he brought our food. There were a few other tables who were waiting to order... More

My friend and I have been to Tim's Place several times and always enjoyed the food and the people. Today however was very different. They have a totally new menu and don't have the good food that Tim's Place was known for. It seemed pretentious for the type of place that Tim's is and the menu items was cut down... More

Menu had a great sampling of the area! It was a community driven atmosphere which was led by Tim! He really worked the room and made everyone feel special. The food matched the atmosphere and overall it was a great way to start the day!

The food is always good, service friendly and Tim's smile and hugs make it a wonderful meal. We have visited for breakfast several times. We have always had a great meal and friendly quick service. They are always accommodating to our special desires and requests.

Tim is an outgoing, hard working special owner who has created breakfast and lunch menus for everyone. The food is basic but creative and is high quality with great ingredients and taste. Atmosphere and environment is very welcoming and pleasant. Had a delicious mountain oatmeal dish and my wife had delicious Huevos Rancheros with excellent red and green chili. Food... More
