Excellent choice in Old Town

We greatly enjoyed our lunch at the Church Street Cafe in Old Town. There is outdoor seating both on the street and on the back patio and the restaurant is in a lovely old adobe building. The fajita salad was a fine lighter luncheon choice and the tamale plate was very tasty and substantial.

We'll be back for wonderful tamales and chile rellenos finished off with my new favorite, so papillae. Service was somewhat slow but worth the wait. Sit outside if you can.

Absolutely outstanding food, served in a charming rustic series of rooms decorated with objects and motifs from the American Southwest. I've eaten here many times over the years, and it's always great.

When we finally got the food, the taco was tasty, but also a soggy mess. For a place that's been popular as long as this... More

Eat in one of the oldest buildings in Albuquerque's Old Town and enjoy a quality meal. Prices are reasonable, service is great, and the food has unique flavors and ingredients.

Small, cozy and private. This old town restaurant provides locals and visitors an authentic New Mexican meal. Guacamole, enchiladas, sopapillas and of course green and red chile make this spot one to remember. You won't be disappointed.

Our orders were taken and a couple in our party gave very explicit instructions as to how they wanted there meals prepared. The person taking the order sayed the instructions were understood. Meals were served... More
