The food was OK. The service was average. But the restaraunt itself was very interesting. It was in walking distance from our hotel and the inside is allot bigger than it looks on the outside.

This place was recommended as the best restaurant in Old Town by at least a 1/2 dozen locals. Indeed we checked out 2 other places on the Plaza and this place looked the best. Food was mostly ok. I got the sampler plate. Chili relleno was cooked to a point it was actually hard to find. I've had better of... More

At first glance it looked like a hole in the wall but once inside it was huge, plus great AC. Although we went for lunch I ended up ordering from the breakfast menu and was pleasantly surprised by the size of the portions. Had the pork canitas with eggs and potatoes and it was delicious.

The food and service here are both great. It's also conveniently located in Old Town Albuqerque. This also means that it is more expensive. I thought the food was worth the extra cost though. I will definitely eat here again.

Wandering through an old hacienda is pretty cool. Eating here is very mediocre. The chips were pretty greasy and a bit funny tasting. The salsa was just ok. My posole was nothing special. I love posole and this was decent chicken broth, medium amount of chicken and a lot of white corn. There were no additions like cilantro, onions, tortilla... More

Whilst on our honeymoon travelling Route 66 we had a few days stop over in Albuquerque and were recommended to eat at church street cafe. We were seated straight away but it was at least 5 minutes before anyone came to see what we wanted to drink never mind eat. We ordered fajitas between us and a side order of... More

My husband found this place in a travel magazine, so we made our way to Old Town Albuquerque, parked, and walked the short distance to the restaurant. The atmosphere was wonderful. We were seated inside, but we could see there was live music out on the patio. The place was busy when we arrived but became a bit less busy... More

We shared a beef fajita dish which was great and enough for the two of us. Salsa and chips were great. Beers rounded out the meal. Patio is lovely, but flies thought the food was great also!

Good mexican food in a historical building. The house is one of the oldest in New Mexico and provides a nice and authentic dining experience. Portions were good and the prices reasonable. Would definitely go back.

We decided to try out the Church Street Café after seeing good reviews and the menu posted everywhere around Old Town. We had to wait to be seated and then once we were seated it took about 10 minutes before anyone actually came to our table to take our order (drinks+food). He blamed it on training new wait staff but... More
