Aloha all, Another attempt to try something new here in ABQ while on another business trip to town. Again, I went to the TripAdvisor stats and solicited a few local recommendations. Paul's came up as a good place for a great steak. Truthfully, I'm somewhat...More

This is an old fashioned steak house, dark inside, but serious about quality food and service. Price is a little steep, but well worth it when it comes to the flavor and portions of the service.

Come for the retro swank, return again and again for the truly good food at a great price. I have to preface this review by saying that I really, really know steakhouses, having worked in restaurant development for years. Paul's is not a Morton's or...More

Its good to find a restaurant with character. What some other reviewers might see as dated décor is actually part of the charm. The staff were really helpful, being very flexible handling the individual requests of a large and noisy group. The food was excellent,...More

What's on the inside is more important than what's on the outside. We were looking for a place for steaks and we found one. It was obvious from the stream of locals streaming in that we were at the right place. I had the peppered...More
