Great for our large group

They were super accommodating when our group of 12 showed up. I shared the 8 beer sampler and loved 'em all. The blackberry Hefeweitzen was unusually good. We shared nachos and a sampler platter of fried veggies. My chicken and waffles was very tasty, although I wish I had seen the option for the... read more

The Nexus Brewery is a difficult place to find but is well worth the search. If your looking for Southern fried chicken and cat fish in Albequerque, this is the place to go. What impressed me about the fried food was that it was tasty but not greasy. The Mac and Cheese side dishes were to die for and the... More

Visited here in Nov 2014 and enjoyed the beer, but felt the lunch items were more fast food than bar quality. Visited again today for late lunch and again thoroughly enjoyed the berrs. The IPA and Red ales are superb. As a brewery this is a must try. However, the food is too much like fast food at a take... More

We're just as much known for our food as we are for our beers, so I'm surprised to see this from you! Really sorry to hear that you haven't been as impressed. We want to be your go-to spot in Albuquerque for both, so I'm glad you let me know. Hope you'll get in touch after next time to tell... More

This Southwest/Soulfood fusion restaurant was new to me. My husband wanted to try it while we were in Albuquerque for the Balloon Fiesta, so I went with it. The Scottish Red Ale was excellent. And my husband is still talking about the bacon and green chile macaroni and cheese. Seriously. He's still talking about it. It's been months. The wait... More

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).

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.

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
