Comfort food

The Range is a staple of my eating out places. I love the huevos rancheros, and their meatloaf is delicious. This is a great place to meet friends, not too noisy. Oh! And the desserts and pastries are the best you can find in a restaurant.

Came for just a bite to eat at 8:00 pm because of convenient location and reviews of others. We were not disappointed. Two of us split the grilled cheese sandwich and tomato bisque. There's no charge for sharing and the waiter arranged for each of us to have a half of each served with appropriate and attractive garnishes. The jelly... More

We had dinner AND breakfast the next morning. My 14 year old son chose pancakes and what he got what enormous; 3 huge pancakes,... More

I went there to meet a friend for breakfast, for what is a standard diner style breakfast I considered the breakfast quite expensive as almost everything hovered around $12. I consider that to be pricey at a non ambience filled restaurant. The food was tasty but not excellent. I felt rushed to leave less than tell minutes after the food... More

First time at this location, funky decor but not ridiculous. I ordered the Range chicken which is a type of New Mexican grilled chicken breast with cheeses, roasted green chilis, and corn tortilla (served with avocado slices and black beans). It was mouth wateringly perfect, been talking about it days after. We sat in a cozy half circle booth for... More

There are several Range Cafe locations. Though this is not my favorite location (which is the original in Bernalillo NM), it is quite good. The menu is very diverse and the desserts are fabulous!

I am sure this restaurant has plenty of good meal items, but I could eat the Huevos Con Queso and Pecan Roll everyday. The restaurant gets quite busy on the weekends after 10, but it is definitely worth a stop. I split the Huevos and pecan roll with my husband and it is more than enough.

Everything on the menu looked good. We had a late dinner so I tried to keep it light with huevos rancheros. Their portions are very generous. Friendly staff. They had 1/2 price desserts after 8:30.

I had the combination plate with chile relleno, two beef enchiladas and a chicken taco that was to die for. The green rice was pretty darn good too. If you like desserts, this is the place for you with a number of fresh made treats.

This is a cafe and has the air of a cafe. Good choices of both New Mexican and American food. Nostalgic decor and friendly staff. A good choice for the price.
