Enjoyed the outdoor dining. Food was terrific and enjoyed their sangrias. Wait staff was great. Look forward to going back. Afterwards, enjoyed a drive down old Route 66 on our way westward on I-40.

Cocina Alzul on 12 St, was one of our go-to eateries before Covid 19. We haven't been there since March. We went tonight and OMGawd, unbelievably DELICIOUS❣️ We can't believe we went 6 months without the BEST Huevos Rancheros. We give them 10 stars out...of 5❣️More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I decided to treat my short film crew to food one night. Arellana's burger was 13.95, taco plate was 14.95 each, and we got 2 drinks. The total came out to $69.80 before the tip. I will gladly...return soon.More

Great tacos. We went with the family and had great food, the pulled pork was excellent, also the green chili sauce. Be back

This was a place I'd wanted to like, based on word of mouth and slick marketing -- but I found the carne adovada only slightly above average. I've certainly had worse, and I don't have any complaints, but it didn't stand out as a mouth-watering...melange of spices, the way Mary & Tito's does. The dish I did like here was brisket smothered in green chile, which is not something you see in a lot of New Mexican places.So, points for creativity there. I'd much rather restaurants stick with professional chefs at one location rather than opening multiple joints -- this was a mistake that I think Cocina Azul made. I can't speak to the ambience as I ordered via Doordash during the pandemic.More

Great place with delicious green chile sauce! I got the. I’m on plate with the taco, tamale and enchilada, and wow, what a great sampling of their food!

Arriving in Albuquerque just before lunch our friends took us to this authentic Mexican restaurant and it was amazing! Food was exceptional and so was the service! Besides the food they also had a great selection of local craft beer. We ate at the original...one on Mountain Road - highly recommended!More

I had a taco salad and it had more lettuce and a tiny layer of refried beans. Sopillas were ranked number 1 but, they were very small and it took a long time to make it to our table!

Ask the server what they like...they won’t steer you wrong. Do get chips & salsa, so flavorful. Brisket chili rellenos OMGoodness. They’ve got the flavors down. I couldn’t finish my meal as it was generous. Prices were very reasonable, especially for the quality and deliciousness
