Ordered the beef tacos with refried beans and red chile on the side! Tacos were delicious and the meat was very well seasoned. Chile sauce does have a little spice to it but nothing I couldn't handle (and I'm a wuss when it comes to spicy food). Would definitely recommend for anyone that likes New Mexican food!

I've been eating at Perea's once or twice a week for 3 decades. Seems like they get ticked off at their landlord every few years and decide to move. I've lost count of the moves (7, 8, 9?) but their clientele keeps following them. The reason is obvious - the food. The same family has been running the restaurant as... More

We have been going to Albuquerque for 20 years and just discovered this wonderful spot. It is in an unassuming building near strip malls and brake shops. Friendly and rapid service. For $50 for a family of 4 we had fresh and authentic food. The green chile sauce is very hot (you can order it on the side if you... More

I've eaten at Perea's countless times. I have to admit that even though I'm a local, "New Mexican cuisine" is not my favorite. However, when you want it, you want it done right. You can't get much better than Perea's. Perea's is a small-ish, relatively no-frills restaurant, but don't despair if there's a line. Service is fast and friendly, and... More

This is one of our favorite spots. I especially like the beef, refried beans and potato stuffed sopaipilla plate (be sure to ask for the extras (lettuce, tomatoes) if you like them. Great with sides of sour cream and guacamole. Also very good is the chicken enchilada plate with green chili.

We went to Pereas for brunch and each of us ordered a little something different, but with similar themes of carne adovada , green chile, and fresh tortillas. The pork was out of this world! Prices were reasonable, especially for the amount of food. I wouldn't go here every weekend because it was sooo much food, but if you have... More

I eat there as often as I can, they have the best service and the best food. It is a little small, but always accommodating. Service with a smile and glad to help you with special requests.

I have been dining at Perea's as far back as I can remember - I would like to say nearly 20 years. The food they produce is outstanding and I have always considered it my favorite place for New Mexican. I no longer live in Albuquerque but when I visit I almost make at least one trip.
