The service, beer and food was excellent. We sat in the bar area, you can tell this is a favorite place for locals.

Although the staff were nice the service was terrible and the food atrocious. I got the combo platter. Everything was swimming in liquid from the saice. My chippie relleno which is supposed to be crispy inn the outside and gooey on the inside was total...More

We travel to New Mexico a few times a year and always stop here for a delightful lunch. The chips and salsa are tasty, and my favorite dish, the stuffed sopapilla, is absolutely the best (but it's a large dish). They make a really good...More

Our Route 66 trip took us through Gallup NM, where we stayed the night. We always like neighborhood restaurants where the locals eat. Panz Alegra was recommended, so we tried it. Very good choice. The taco dinner was great, the green chili outstanding, and the...More

Met friends here for a drink and appetizers. The wings were very good - moist and juicy. Drinks were reasonably priced. When the juke box was playing, it was hard to hear each other, but then it is a bar. I would recommend the place.

We had eaten, but our friends enjoyed their meals, and have been there before. The service was great, and it was close to closing time.

The carne adovada (chunks of pork marinated in red chile) burrito was just ok. Not spicy at all. Do not order red wine as it comes right out of the refrigerator, ice cold and cheap tasting. In all fairness they probably rarely get people who...More

We went here as it was walkable from the BW, the food looked good, and it was still open at 8pm. The only drawback was the chips tasting a bit dry/stale. Salsa was good, and the carne adovada was amazing. Red sauce so good and...More
