The place doesn't look like much from the outside but it was the best meal we had while in Albuquerque. The Carne Adovada stuffed Sopapilla with the egg on top is delicious. A family owned restaurant that was packed with locals each time we visited. It is so good we drove back from Santa Fe just to enjoy another meal.

This is very good southwestern food. Their carne adovada is the specialty, and it doesn't disappoint. Tender meat, lots of spice and flavor. The food may be simple, but it's done very well. Worth a visit.

Family owner biz, award winning, but typically casual and unpretentious as most of Albuquerque is. Real New Mexican food, the red chile is what they are known for, but the green is good as well. If you like red try the carne adovada. IF they have any Mexican wedding cake left, get it! Very difficult to make, only place I've... More

Possibly the best carne adovada in Albuquerque. If you're not a fan of New Mexican cuisine's deluge of cheese, then Mary & Tito's is the place for you. Lots of plates are sans cheese, and even the plates that require cheese (enchiladas) don't overdo it.

TIP: be wild an order something outside your comfort zone, you will be glad you did! What a great place to eat away from the busy tourist areas, great food, service and reasonable prices. Must eat here while in Albuquerque.

Definitely New Mexico and Albuquerque local flavor. There are two dining rooms, the main area and one to the side of the old house. The wait staff was friendly and responsive to bringing a menu and iced tea. From the limited menu, I chose the red chile plate with beans, rice and a tortilla. The flavors were very good, just...

A co-worker and I decided to try this place out for our business lunch. I was really disappointed. The chili was was ok,but my beans had a grey look about them. I am not sure if they are fresh or canned refried beans. My coworker asked if they have sopapillas to have on the side and the tall guy serving... More

Our 5th trip and we've enjoyed every meal. Carne Adovada is very good, stuffed sopapillas also a favorite. We cleaned our plates before I thought to take a picture!

we made it for breakfast and each got different sauces over our huevos. I opted for red, and was very happy until I tried the green sauce that my wife got. Hers was even better! Either way, you can't go wrong. We need to get back to Mary and Titos for lunch.

I am a native of Albuquerque and had heard of Mary and Titos. My experience was terrible. My enchilada was cold and cheese not even a tiny bit melted. The red chili left a lot to be desired. I would advise anyone that is thinking of going to this café to forget and just eat a hamburger instead. Don't waste... More
