10 years ago you could get a great pizza here. Our last 2 pizzas went in the trash. I have NEVER thrown out a pizza in my life. Soggy bottom and swimming in grease. So disappointed.More

Our family stopped around noon on a Saturday after some hiking nearby. The place is small, so if anybody else had been there, we would have had to ready outside or do takeout. The pizza was great abd cheaper than other places in Albuquerque of...More

We love coming here for pizza and beer. They have an excellent craft beer selection, which is especially awesome considering the goofy liquor rules in Edgewood, and lack of liquor licenses. (Weird-- religious thing?) The residents up here REALLY appreciate what Pizza Barn has! Thanks...More

Great pizza, but it is really carry out only. Pizza was hand tossed. Veggie pizza was very good. Call in your order.

This is a small, family business. Pizza is made to your order. I like veggie with pineapple while my family likes supreme meat! Get it 'take and bake' or 'ready to eat'--you decide. Hungry for pizza made to order, this is the best!

While it doesn't appear to be much, it's worth a stop to grab a slice or an entire pie from trail rider. Wasn't too sure about pizza made in a trailer but it's much like a food truck would be just with a bit more...More

We are a small, family owned and operated pizzeria located just east of Albuquerque in Tijeras on old Route 66. We are proud to be in our 10th year as owners and believe we are a staple in our community. Don't let our old building bother you, we are the 'Best Smelling Trailer in the World!' Each pizza is made fresh to order, hand tossed and generously topped. We offer single slices as well as whole gourmet pizzas. Choose one of our 10+ 'tried and true' combos or design your own. We also offer hot and cold subs, salads, hot wings, green chile cheesebread, gelato and sorbet, GLUTEN FREE crust, and soups and Panini sandwiches (seasonal).
