We stopped by after we had gone to Sandia Peak Tramway to see the sunset. I had a deconstructed chicken pot pie-wow, really rich flavor. My husband had a chicken salad with was good but nothing special. We did go back two day later for a fast lunch, we split a green salad with kale, roasted cauliflower, quinoa, feta, plus... More

This is a restaurant I go almost 4 times a week for lunch, dinner and Sunday breakfast. Sometimes I go by myself, with my friends or with my husband and family. The staff is great, always friendly , accomodating and efficient. There is such a variety of salads and dishes. Of course, the desserts are delicious always. A fantastic place... More

As a regular customer of this Flying Star, I was disappointed in my quick stop there last week for a quick bowl of soup one afternoon. I stopped mid-afternoon during some apts and errands and did not have that much time, but needed a bite to eat before I went on to an end of the day apt. So I... More

I had breakfast yesterday at the Rio Grande location of Flying Star with a group of five women after a four mile walk of the shady acequias (irrigation ditches) in this rural area. We enjoyed eating outside in the ample patio under the cottonwood trees. I had the breakfast hash, a tasty and healthy combination of organic quinoa, crimini mushrooms,... More

I had lunch today at the Flying Star Rio Grande location in Albuquerque today. I've eaten at several of the Flying Star locations but not this one before today. The restaurant is very clean and comfortable with free wifi. I was meeting a friend for lunch but something came up and she wasn't there but I had a great lunch... More

Flying Star on Rio Grande is our "go to" spot in Albuquerque for a comfortable lunch. They have a good selection of burgers, sandwiches and other entrees , well prepared with fresh ingredients. There is ample seating inside or on their dog friendly patio.

Let me start by saying I had no idea they only allowed 1 dog per family out on the patio and I had 3. Never did anyone say anything to me and I really really appreciated that as I was traveling solo. The food was out of this world and the service perfect!

First, let me say that overall I am not a big fan of places that have you wait in line to order and then have a spot for a tip. We really enjoyed my wife's order of french toast and that was the highlight of the visit. They did a great job on everything about that order. The coffee was... More
