Enjoyable surprise

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!

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

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

I'd heard about Tim and his restaurant but had never been there so I took a friend there for lunch for her birthday last week. The place is very cheery and our food was tasty. I enjoyed the sweet potato fries, very good. Tim was there (known for hugging patrons) was there but I didn't get a hug. I'll have... More

What a special place! It's truly unique, with great food yes ..... but also a tremendous heart. Tim makes everyone feel welcomed and part of the family. The food is fantastic too! The nachos are generous and tasty with lots of green chile and white cheese, the fries have perfect seasonings, and the green chile cheeseburger was exactly what I... More

Ordered the Mountain and Volcano with both red and green chili on the side. We received a huge plate of food with fried eggs on top cooked as requested! However, main ingredients (potatoes, peppers, cheese, meat) were only lukewarm! Overall, the food was good and really appreciate and applaud the basis on which this restaurant is operated! Will return!

We'd heard of Tim from a video that had gone viral so when we found ourselves in Albuquerque we decided to pop in for a visit. We went for breakfast and both the food and service was very good. Tim was really excited to hear that we'd come from South Africa. Well worth a visit.

Unique offerings. Friendly staff. Hugs are free. A fun place to eat in a strip mall. Always have at least one meal with Tim
