Good dinner and beer

Enjoyed a quick dinner here with our girls on a long road trip. We enjoyed the different kind of beers which let me taste before I made my choice. My husband got the chicken and waffles and thought it was great!

We wanted to try something different and ended up at Nexus Brewery. What a great choice! I tried the "Q's" Wit, similar to Blue Moon and hubby found a new favorite - IPA. Hubby had the Fried Chicken and Waffles and I had Open Faced Chicken Enchiladas. Both were excellent. And portion sizes were perfect. Our waitress was exceptional. I'd... More

Too much hype for the place. The food wasn't that good. The chicken was dry. I was ignored since the minute I walked in. The girls that worked there looked like they couldn't keep up. I did enjoy the beer. Good place to drink or try some craft beer but I visited other breweries in Albuquerque with better prices &... More

I'm really disappointed to hear that you didn't feel taken care of while you were here, Jesus. Training is serious business, so I would never want the team to seem underwhelmed -- it sounds like maybe we'd lost a server or two that day to unforeseen circumstances. As for the food, our chicken should always be moist -- that's our... More

I saw this on the TV Foodmaps app and was really happy we tried it. My friend is a beer snob and loves breweries and she was really impressed. The beer she had was really good and so was her burger.

Good selection of beers but just ok food. Two of us had chicken and waffles. Chicken was a little greasy, but waffle was good. I had fried chicken breasts with gravy and mashed potatoes which was good but gravy had a strange taste to it, a seasoning that I could not figure out. One chicken sandwich and one burger and...

Good to hear you enjoyed the brews you tried, but the food should have been better than okay! Sorry to hear a couple things seemed off -- definitely wish you'd let us know the seasoning in the gravy wasn't tasted off so we could have fixed it. You said you might not be back, but I hope you'll let us... More

After seeing an old episode of diners drive-ins and dives I decided to visit the Nexus on my next trip to Albuquerque. This I later found out it was a mistake.

Really sorry to hear that you didn't leave happy after catching us on the show.

We found Nexus through the FoodNetwork app, because I'm always looking to visit restaurants that have appeared on Triple D.
