CLOSED - does not exist. We were so looking forward to trying out a Diner's Drive-Ins and Dives restaurant and were unable to do so - all boarded up - looks like they may have had a kitchen fire ..... so can't say much more...More

This place is consistently excellent, whether for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Everything freshly prepared and delicious. I thoroughly recommend their breakfast burritos, their fish tacos, and their duck enchiladas.

Don't let the outside appearance fool you. Once you step inside, the warmth from the staff and the delicious New Mexican cuisine is a special treat. Look for the signage that says, "Eli's Place" and you are in the right spot. Underneath, it will say...More

My family and I have eaten here twice while traveling through Albuquerque. It doesn't look like much on the outside and we almost drove right by it, but it's worth going inside. We absolutely loved the food here! I would definitely recommend eating here if...More

Eli's (formerly Sophia's) is an absolute favorite. This little hole in the wall offers unique, tasty New Mexican food with a culinary twist. The owners are such a joy, and on two occasions in the past brought us out new foods and desserts they're experimenting...More
