Had both brunch and lunch at Bruno's over a few days and both were excellent. They serve flat enchiladas with shredded beef, and a good red chili. Much better than rolled. Service was very good. Nice interior with wonderful art.

Went to El Bruno's for dinner. This was my first visit and there were 12 in my party. We did call ahead to let them know and they were setting up the table when we arrived 20 minutes later, no problem. We were seated shortly...More

The food was okay here. I had the fajitas. The meat was a bit greasy but the portion size was nice. Not a great drink selection but easy place to come with large groups though food did take forever.

During my visit to Albuquerque in December 2017, my friends took me here on the night of my arrival. Although the place was pretty crowded, we were seated quickly. Drinks, food, and service were good!

We have been to El Bruno in Cuba a few times, and are always thrilled with their Carne Adovada. This location in Albuquerque also has the same excellent dish, our favorite, probably the best that we have had in town.

The food at El Bruno’s was average at best. They forgot our sopapias and often neglected our empty drinks. The dining table was so dark it was hard to see each other and our food. I would try another restaurant in Albuquerque.

I love the house margarita on the rocks at El Bruno! It is so good and packs quite the punch! The fajitas are yummy along with the enchiladas. I usually go for a combination plate to enjoy multiple items and have yet to have a...More
