Terrific ambiance and very good Mexican food in the old part of Albuquerque. Live guitar music at dinner and friendly service.

Decor, food, and staff were all very good. This restaurant was chosen for us by a friend, who lives in Albuquerque. She has brought out of town guests there before. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

For the second year we dined at Casa de Benavidez while attending AIBF. We enjoyed very much our last year dinner so we decided to make a return visit. Even though it is a large restaurant it is very busy and only takes reservations for large parties. Therefore, we waited for about fifteen minutes; a shorter people than what we... More

This restaurant has a nice atmosphere. Unfortunately, it was a bit too chilly to sit on the lovely patio.

The acoustics are very good and at times it was... More

After being stationed in Albuquerque many, many years ago, I learned that it can't be beaten foe great Mexican Food. I was not disappointed. We found it to be a nice... More

This restaurant is outstanding, the best salsa in the country. It's a traditional New Mexico themed place. The ambience is great and the food is superb.
