Enchiladas are one of my favorite comfort foods. Being a Texan, I had long been content to assert the superiority of rolled enchiladas, filled and covered. Perea's has shattered this misconception and led me to the understanding that stacked enchiladas con huevos are the ultimate enchilada experience. Perea's does both red and green chile. Each order comes with a massive,... More

Yes this place is a hole in the wall with not much for ambiance, but the food is amazing and will please I think the most hard core of critics. I had the chicken burrito with red enchilada sauce. The chicken was tender with that melt in your mouth juiciness and incredibly well seasoned. The enchilada sauce was of course... More

Small, family run business. Excellent service, amazing food and reasonable prices. Had the best huevos rancheros I've ever had. Highly recommended.

So, I have to start this review by saying that I am not a connoisseur of New Mexico style green chile. I live in Pueblo, CO where the green chile is more gravy-like because it is roux-based. This is what I am accustomed to, but I am branching out and Perea's was recommended, so I thought I'd give it a... More

About 10-15. Mins from downtown but worth the drive and it's all freeway anyway so its quick. Perea's is as local as it gets. It's just a little cafe but spotless and family run. The granddaughter was at the cash register and grandma was serving food. The food is classic New Mexican and southwestern. Really good Hueavos Rancheros, and super... More

This was my first experience with an authentic New Mexican breakfast. What a treat it was. This place deserves all the rave reviews. Totally unpretentious with such attentive service, I loved every bite of my eggs, has browns and chile (as a first time visitor, I had to try both the green and red). Oh to have a place even...

The huevos rancheros are just perfect! The hash browns and whole beans are piled on corn tortillas, then topped with eggs and the whole deal smothered with really, really good green chili and cheese. I guarantee you'll like them if you,re not a misplaced Gringo.

I eat here at least once a week. Best Green Chile in town and I love the real hash browns. Red Chile is great too.

I've been eating at Perea's for over 20 years and don't plan to stop - ever. The green chile is hands down the best. It is hot, spicy and delicious. The eggs and hashbrowns are always cooked to perfection and the tortillas are soft and fluffy. I personally can only review the huevos because that's all I ever eat here.... More

Only made it to Perea's once during my recent visit and it was for breakfast. Huevos Rancheros with the bacon flavored beans is a favorite. My daughter doesn't like them but really do. Ordered a side of carne adovada and it remains the best in ABQ. Only regret that I just got there once. Now I'll be thinking about eating... More
