I had the fisherman's platter with fried catfish, fried shrimp, and fried clams. The catfish was cornmeal breaded and fried. Tasted very fresh. The shrimp seemed like it was out of a bag - not breaded in the restaurant, and the clam pieces were tiny - not much flavor. For sides I had potato salad - an excellent mustard based... More

We catered an office party with brisket, turkey and links from JR's. The food was delicious and our guests raved about the food. However, the level of service provided by Howard and Fernando was flawless. The food was ready at the exact time we requested and both of these men couldn't do enough to ensure that we were well prepared... More

Nice service and you can always rely on the food to be good. Nothing outstanding, but fine. The menu is extensive enough to suit almost every taste. Plenty to choose from whatever mood you are on.

The stuffed Jalapenos were very good. The Meat was tender and the portions were generous, but for this St. Louis native the barbecue sauce was very bland. Waitress was courteous and attentive. The place was clean and quiet ( only 3 other couples ) Parking is in the rear of building. A lot of carry-out business while we were there.

Every time we're visiting Albuquerque, we try to eat at JR's! We found this place by searching Albuquerque restaurants that serve catfish. The sides are good too! The yeast rolls just melt in your mouth! The people taking the order at the counter are so very friendly. We hope to visit there again real soon!

Great little place. You have to try the sausage best in town.

This is a neat-looking place very near Kirtland AFB. The walls are decorated with military items and tributes to the armed forces. We gave the menu a fair sample, trying the BBQ, seafood and a number of sides. The food was just ok. The (semi-pulled) pork portion was ample and came with sauce on the side. The fried oysters did...
