This is a chain of restaurants in Albuquerque. Oddly, it seems to matter which location one goes to as to the quality that is served. We have found Rio Grande and Almeda are the best. Corrales is consistently underwhelming and extremely slow.

We were 9 again, and Sunday breakfast after church services. We were all seated together, and there was something for everyone, even those who needed gluten free, and vegetarian. We were crowded but able to converse along the table.

Found this on Tripadvisor and the reviews made us want to look at the menu - so glad we did! We actually ate their twice. Dinner and breakfast (after our hot air ballon ride with Rainbow Ryders) and was SO GOOD! Their food is excellent and very fresh. My family each had something different and we each enjoyed our meals.... More

A locals favorite that was a pleasant find for this visitor. The line was long at lunchtime but it moved quickly. The food came to the table fast, which was appreciated by the pre-schooler with us.

Looking for Fast food but not your usual greasy burger? Come to this place. This chain has wonderful food served quickly but is so fresh and very high quality. Service was very friendly and helpful. Fresh salads, soups, or many sandwiches to choose from, this is a great alternative stop for someone on the go.

How sweet can this be --- family dinner on the patio at the flying star. The red stuff drink is to drive all day for! Loving the cool evening on the pet friendly patio. The great menu gives plenty of choices. This lace is a must stop in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Awesome food and ambience.

We ate at Flyer Star 3 of the 4 nights of our stay in Albuquerque because we wanted consistently tasty and affordable food nearby where we were staying. The food and the desserts were awesome, and the ambiance was great. I wish there was a Flying Star near us!

We ate our breakfast every morning at this café. Our server turned out to be the same sweet lady by the name of Krishna. She was very pleasant, even when the café was very busy. She was accurate and helpful with the menu. She smiled and treated us with respect, yet very cordial. We were content to see her every... More

The frittata was great very hearty breakfast with potatoes in the frittata. Salad was a nice addition to cut the richness of the frittata. Portions are large. I got two meals out of the frittata.

This is a great stop in Nob Hill. Prices are a little higher than some sandwich/coffee shops, but we enjoyed the quality and atmosphere.
