I love this beautiful restaurant. The building is very large and there is also a large garden patio with a waterfall. The food and service are great. However, the carne adovada, while delicious, is so hot with chile that it will be impossible for many people to eat it. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this restaurant, while suggesting that you ask... More

I love sopapillas and it was my last day as I travelled to the airport. We were able to sit outside in a beautifully landscaped patio area. Service was excellent as was the food. Loved that they had specials every day, either a small portion or a large. All of the entrees came with a sopapilla which was quite large... More

Not cheap, but do they make great margaritas ! If you want a great night out this is my recommendation.... More

Nice garden atmosphere, wonderful guitarist, good food, local craft beers, and probably the best ribs I ever ate in my life.

My husband and I had a lovely, quiet, long lunch here. The food was delicious, good and spicy- the way a good mexican restaurant should be. Our service was excellent and the next time we are in Albuquerque, we hope to swing by again.

While in the land of enchantment you have to find the Chili style you like best. The debate will last long beyond a sunset. The best way to find your preference is to get your dish "christmas style" that is to say some green and some red. And this place has very nice red and green chili options to try.... More

When people come to New Mexico, they should try authentic New Mexican food made with our unique green and red chile. This restaurant makes some of the best food to be found in northern New Mexico, and the Margaritas are wonderful. The selection is huge, there is live music on the weekends, and a beautiful outside patio is available in... More

Stopped in for dinner. Good margaritas, really good green chili. Atmosphere is very nice. Looking forward to the patio opening this spring. Friendly service. One of our favorite places for great New Mexico cooking.
