Nice setting for dinner

Recommended to us by the guys at our Motel, we took a walk down. Got a table no problem and had a very nice & varied Mexican meal. Starters and mains were nice size and did the job perfectly. Also very reasonably priced. Service was friendly and swift too. A nice little place to eat.

Stopped in Old Town to shop and grab a bite of lunch. We were pulling a trailer and found convenient parking. Chile rellenos. They were good. Restaurant is haunted ! Did not see anything but check it out if you are interested.

I had visited this place for the first time back in 2008 because of the haunted history (it's the first stop in the ghost tour of Old Town) and I thought it was great. However, last year when we went back it seemed touristy and like the food was not so good. We went back this year because my daughter... More

Whenever I visit the plaza, I have to stop in at Church Street. They have fresh, spicy salsa and plenty of variety in New Mexican/American food items. The last time I visited, I brought my roommate who can't really handle spicy food, and she found something to eat, too I'd definitely recommend stopping here!

We found this cafe based on a review of Route 66 haunted locations. It was so fun to learn of the history of the cafe before eating there. The food was good, staff friendly and very comfortable atmosphere, but no ghosts :)

tasteless and a poor example of Mexican food. The chile (both red and green) was bland. Over priced for what you get.

We arrived on a Saturday night around 5:30 and the place was already busy. We were seated immediately, however. A large bowl of chips and and a small bowl of salsa (with a kick) were placed at our table (we were able to get more salsa as we had more chips than salsa)! I started off with a Sangria Margarita--$7.50... More

I recently completed an 8 day tour of New Mexico and Texas and was in Albuquerque for 24 hours. I ate breakfast at the Church Street Cafe following the recommendation of my friend who is a local, and it was my favorite dining experience of the entire trip. If it were possible to adopt a grandfather, I would take my... More

There's an alcohol ban (%) within so many feet of the Church. (The Church is grandfathered in). This wonderful restaurant, to my knowledge, falls within that district. Only noting this in case you are desiring perhaps a margarita. (I think they CAN sell beer or wine ?? .. not certain, exactly). They DO have, say, a margarita on the menu,... More

This place has been around for eons... The food is fantastic and authentic New Mexican cuisine. The building is beautiful with plenty of historical significance. Don't let the outside appearance fool you...this place is HUGE with numerous dining rooms and patios suitable for large groups or parties. The amazing patio is perfect for escaping the outside world, sipping margaritas and... More
