Try the nachos. Calzones are great. Roasted garlic. Make any pizza into a calzone. Go lunch sized on salads, calzones and half size on nachos if you're not in a group. Sample the beers before you choose. The service is consistently great. The staff feels like a family. Good ownership.

We love the resturaunt. Been there many times. Everything is good. I prefer a salad and a pizza called Tuchas…Veggie. But there are others just as good. The salads are good and the burgers from what I understand (I don’t eat red meat) are also good. Don’t forget the selection of beers both house made and more. The only complaint... More

I appreciate the feedback Fred. I agree the noise level can be a bit high in the bar area. The booths, especially the ones by the hostess stand, are much quieter and are shielded from the noise to a certain extent. The Truchas and the Mimbres, which is a calzone version of the Truchas, are two of our best sellers.... More

Turtle Mountain is well established on the beer making front. They have a great selection of beer, mostly their own. The food is always good and we sit near the bar as the bartender blankets the area with service.

Thanks for your positive review. I'm happy to hear that the service at the bar is efficient. My bar staff always likes it when I get compliments on their efforts. Head Brewer Mick Hahn has been making great strides towards providing some of the best beers in the ABQ metro area. Thanks for coming in! More

Let's face it, Rio Rancho has slim pickings when it comes to restaurants. Turtle Mountain is one spot everyone should check out though. Fiancé and I both ordered calzones and they were huge and delicious!! It's a bit dark and loud but I expect and want that in this type of restaurant!! Didn't try any of their beers though as...

Thanks for your positive review. Being a restaurant and a brewery, we get some people who come in for the food, some who come in for the beers, and still others who come in for both. Whatever the reason you come in, we try and provide the best quality food and service that we can. And it's always nice to... More

Turtle Mountain is a must! The food and variety of beer available will meet your needs. It does get crowded, so plan your trip accordingly.

My overall impression from my very cordial greeting to the service and meeting one of the managers who invited me to try the green chile posole! I did it was awesome, hot but tasty. Their burgers and even the fish sandwich were very tasty! The beer choices were also a good variety and sampled with delight! I recommend this restaurant... More

I've been here a number of times. The beer is good, the food is great, and the ambiance is excellent for a night out. Only negative point is that if you don't get there early, regardless of the night of the week, you will have a wait! But that just speaks to how good it is, as all the locals... More
