Foul Play Cafe is an interactive mystery dinner theater. Our shows are a great way to spend a night out with friends or celebrate a special occasion. We serve up an entertaining and fun filled comedic mystery and a four-course dinner while you play detective and decide whodunit for a chance to be our super sleuth at the end of the evening.

Our shows consist of four (and occasionally 5) 10-30 minute acts with courses served at intermissions. Full show and dinner takes about 2.5 hours. They are performed "environmentally" - that is the action is occurring throughout the room and not on a stage. Audience participation is encouraged but not required.

Shows are offered year round, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 PM. Shows and menu change every three months. Our shows are fairly intimate most nights, with us playing for groups of 15-60 guests.

So much good stuff to say, where to start. Great acting, the actors stay in character to whole time. I couldn't stop laughing. It's a very personal experience as the actors engage with you. Then there's the food, so good, I got the ribs. They were so tender. My friend got the chicken it was also good. Guessing the murder... More

It was good fun. The meal was hotel food, but not bad hotel food. The spirit of mirth was infectious. Mystery dinner theater at its corny, endearing best. I will go again.

The cast at Foul Play Café are professionals, the experience that I had at Foul Play Café was absolutely outstanding. I would endorse Foul Play Café for visitors traveling to Albuquerque, NM. Albuquerque is a wonderful city and Foul Play Café is worth the trip.

First off, the food was excellent! I figured we paid for the performance and the food would be a side benefit, but I personally thought that the food alone was worth the price! Now, the real reason for the survey, the performance... It was very well done. It had a twist or turn, so the outcome was not obvious, and... More

We had stayed at the Sheraton Hotel before and had seen the reviews. I planned our 2 year anniversary dinner and got the special package. My husband was part of the show it was great. Had fun and the best part was I solved the mystery. ..Oh and the food was delicious. ..
