I’m kind of a wimp when it comes to spicy, so Mexican restaurants (or should I say “New Mexican” restaurants) are tough. And nachos are spicy, usually with jalapeños and beef, 2 things I don’t do. But the Beef Nachos Grande, substituting chicken for the...More

We sat down with relatively low expectations before sending a friend off on a flight. The previous restaurant in this spot had been known for a poor imitation of New Mexican cuisine, and after all, it's an airport restaurant. However, the green chile won over...More

I’ve rated Tia Juanita’s as no better than “average” in the past, but this time the green chile chicken stew that a friend and I had for a quick lunch was surprisingly good. Chips and salsa are automatic and also good. The stew came with...More

My guests are experts at New Mexican food and they raved about all dishes. As requested, the waiter gave me green and red sauce to have with my sampler; both were good but the red was my favorite. Service was not perfect, but was pleasant,...More

This is for TJ’s inside security. Dos Tacos Used to be my favorite snack at ABQ. Recipe has changed dramatically. Rubbery shells, shredded beef that’s like mush. Salsa ugh! Skip this place and do Panda next door instead! Worst tacos I have ever eaten!

Just past the TSA security checkpoint, and their breakfast burritos are fabulous! With a choice of bacon, sausage or chorizo, and red or green chile. Hot, fresh, and well worth the 5 minute wait! Allow yourself enough time for a quick stop - you will...More

No extra taco sauce. Two dry tacos. And a enchilada that was basically a rolled up shell with a tablespoon of cheese on one side and red sauce on the other end. Then refried beans that were "fine" and rice that was "fine". My husbands...More

We stopped in on our way out of town so our granddaughter could have last taste of New Mexican food before she returned to Wisconsin. We all enjoyed our meals and especially the green sauce. Their special breakfast burrito was large and prepared with hash...More
