I've been there twice and the food is great but. I went there last night and had to wait 45 minutes just to get some service. I witnessed 3 couples that couldn't wait any longer and just got up and left! Like I said I think the food is great along with the beer. But I think you should re... More

Jeremy, I apologize that the service just wasn't cutting. Did this happen on Saturday? If it did I am sorry, we had a rush on Saturday we just did not anticipate, it was like a Saturday in the summer which has not happened for weeks. I want to assure you that this isn't the norm for us. Thanks for letting... More

Must try the chicken and waffles! I heard the brewskis were good too! Wish I had room to sample other menu items cause the red beans and rice looked awesome!

There's always next time, Lathaniel! The Red Beans & Rice are a must, so there's an excellent excuse to make it back to ABQ right there. Thanks for your compliments, and we hope you had a great trip! Cheers, Ken More

Heard lots of good things about the place from friends as I visited Albuquerque so checked it out. Ended up with the red beans and rice and a side order of okra. And a couple of excellent beers! Okra was just right, red beans and rice were tangy without being overly hot, and the service was excellent. I can see... More

found this place while doing a mini microbrew crawl in ABQ. Place was clean and did not have the brewery smell of our last two stops ( not sure if that was good or bad). Service was great and my wife and I were excited to see chicken and waffles on the menu. Food was good and filling. Beer was... More

By far the best place we ate at while in Albuquerque. Awesome chicken and waffles!!! My wife had a blackened chicken salad that was great too. Service and atmosphere were excellent as well. Also, some of the best beers around hands down. I will definitely be visiting again anytime I am in town.

Last week while in Albuquerque, my friends took us to Nexus, we went looking forward to eating fried chicken and waffles...that was the main thing. Regrettably for us the place was so busy and to a point chaotic, I know that it is good for business to be busy, but they must be wise. We couldn't stay to eat our... More

Wish we'd knocked it out of the park for you, so I'm really sorry to hear that we messed up. No matter how busy we are, I want to be able to come through for you just as would if you were the only customer here. Looking forward to another chance to do that on your next visit to Albuquerque.... More

I spotted Nexus on "places nearby " from Google, so my wife and I decided to give it a try. It is a little place hidden off of the freeway, but we were surprised!

I give the food, specifically their fried chicken and waffles, 5 stars. I give the IPA four stars. Service was 3 stars for an average of 4 stars.

Very glad to hear that you enjoyed the chicken and waffles along with the hoppiest of brews, but I wish the service had matched up. I'm sorry not to have more details about that, but I hope you'll get in touch with me directly if you think there's something I should know. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and thanks...

We stopped in at Nexus while we were visiting ABQ for the beer (which is great) but came back again a few days later for the food. Everyone in our party really enjoyed the meals. They serve a style of soul food with a signature Duke City green chile kick. You will not be disappointed by the beer, food or... More
