Love the vibe, love the people, love the food! This place is a little piece of old school Albuquerque. they have been doing it since the 20's and do it right. No frills, no problem! They crank the food out of this place. The kitchen is HUGE! I read somewhere that they make 1000 tamales a day. My family loves to grab some food, a Mexican Coke and have a seat outside on beautiful sunny Albuquerque days. Warning, no indoor seating, so don't freak out when you get here. The prices can't be beat. Well worth getting off the beaten path to enjoy this quirky restaurant in a funky industrial part of downtown Albuquerque.
