We came for a late lunch starving after a long plane ride from the east coast. Great place for a delicious chile relleno or chicken tacos. Staff was ver accommodating in building something for everyone to eat.

We had our dinner here and we find it cozy and the food was good. There’s a band and people dancing on the other side of the restaurant but we prefer a quiet dinner.

This has been one of my go-to places for years--interesting menu, delicious food, beautiful place. Over the last 6 to 12 months we've noticed a serious lack of quality control...their once delicious house made turkey green chile sausage became inedible; formerly wonderful entrees (most notably...the chicken and waffles) are consistently overcooked--it seems like they've been cooked ahead of time and kept 'warm' all day...today I had the piñon blue corn pancakes...they were better than I've had them recently, but the pork sausage was terrible, and the syrup was some sort of fake maple flavor. Really too expensive for this kind of experience. It makes me sad to say this, but I won't be going back.More

We ate here after we toured the Pueblo Indian Cultural Center and museum. The restaurant is awesome and so was the service. They have several vegetarian type selections as well. I had the black bean burger which I thoroughly enjoyed. I highly recommend eating here...if you visit the museum or are just in the area.More

I just had the eggs Benedict and it was so good! The hollandaise sauce had red chile in it the it was served over green chile cheese biscuits instead of english muffins.

This place has a casual atmosphere and the decoration can cause it to be on the Noisey side. Food was freshly prepared, service was excellent.

It was a quiet restaurant; the staff was very friendly and helpful with selections. Service was not fast, but we were not in a hurry. We enjoyed our lunch.

I was looking for a unique dining experience to share with our exchange student from Portugal. The reviews for the restaurant were good, and we needed something to do on a unusually cold winter day in Albuquerque. We waited about 15 minutes to be seated...for lunch. I advised our waiter I am allergic to onions and asked that he check with the chef as to what I can eat. The waiter returned stating everything has onion. My family was hungry and we didn't want to go somewhere else. I looked at the waiter and it was clear he just wanted us to leave. I asked about the BLTA as bacon doesn't have onion. Well the BLTA has turkey along with the bacon and according to the waiter the turkey has onion powder. I asked him to bring a BLTA with the turkey on the side, and my husband would eat the turkey. I asked for a side salad and the waiter stated all their salad dressings have onion. I inquired as to the oil and vinegar?? Needless to say ordering was a chore. And, when the sandwich arrived there was no avocado, and no salad dressing. It took 10 minutes to get sliced avocado, which should have been part of the sandwich, and the oil and vinegar for my salad. And, there was no onion in the turkey, as it was processed turkey. My husband ordered a pueblo burger with fries and he stated the bun was very dry. My daughter and our exchange student ordered the bison burger with fries and it was a hit. We spent over $50 for a lunch that would have been less stressful at a local cheap eats place.More

Black bean burger with black kale and black garlic, served on a charcoal bun. I liked it. Particularly with the sweet potato fries.

When do you ever get to try indigenous food? My guess is never. I had the bison and the special onion rings. Delicious. Service was great and food was unique. Highly recommend it.

Definitely contact them. The inside seating isn't large enough for your party but their covered patio might be.
