We are Midwesterners and this was our first trip to New Mexico. We stopped at El Taco Tote and fell in love with the salsa bar. You can try one new dip or several. They were kind enough to help us pronounce what we were ordering and even told us was few of the terms meant to help us with... More

Selection is great. Food is great, condiment bar is outstanding. Its one step below a sitdown restaurant, but not fast food. The menu is hard to folllow

On a whim we decided to stop here for lunch during an 11-hour day of traveling. What a nice break to have some REAL food prepared quickly.

Located in the Nob Hill area, this real Mexican grill restaurant is a welcome change of pace from the chain taco restaurants. Using 'family secret' spices and quality meat, El Taco Tote offers great-tasting tacos, enchiladas, burritos, etc. The whole family will enjoy this "come-as-you-are" restaurant.

I've visited Albuquerque twice and I've visited this place twice. They have good simple food that is cooked for you fresh and just tastes good.

Their chips and jamaica aren't anything to write home about but... More

It was fun to add all the different salsas and condiments to the tacos and chips. True Mexico Mexican type tacos, barbacoa, abodabo, etc. etc. on housemade tortillas. Only wish you could get the fish tacos with grilled as well as fried fish.
