We go every Saturday morning after the gym. My fav is huevos rancheros, whole beans, hash browns, chorizo crumbled over the top, smothered in the best red chili in town. They have been around for close to 30 years? There's a reson why... Weekend mornings are busy but they move tables quickly and it's worth the wait.

Very busy, maybe a little understaffed. Tacos were all good, although we couldn't agree on which was best. Green chili is very hot, nearly to the point that it doesn't seem like it should be consumed on it's own.

While the hostess/cashier was a bit overwhelmed with a large party wanting split checks, she took my name and after a short wait was seated- server was at my table offering hot coffee within seconds! I love that! Ordered flat enchiladas with egg on top - & Red Sauce only... More

Stopped in for breakfast with my kids. We arrived towards the end of the Sunday morning rush. A server seated us right away. Which seemed to cause some confusion with the hostess. The service was quick and friendly. I ordered the breakfast burrito with carne adobada,egg, potato and red chile. The portion size was generous and loaded with carne.The red... More

The staples were solid (chips, salsa, sopaipillas, green chile, beans, rice). Totally hit the spot, will be getting a relleno again soon. Yum.

We have gone here for years. I always get the huevos rancheros with green chili on a flour tortilla and my husband orders the carne adovada and eggs. The food is great and it's a local family business. The staff has always been so nice to us over the years. They have limited seating, but worth the wait. Our families... More

This is cozy little local place, they are not open for dinner, they don't have a bar and they don't have a liquor license, but what they do have is amazing beef, amazing chili and fast service.

When I have an early flight in to visit my daughter eating brunch at Pereas appears to becoming a tradition. Huevas Rancheros is our meal of choice. It is always tasty and filling. Love the smoky refried beans and crispy hash browns. Although the carne adovada is one of the best I just couldn't eat that much food. I do... More

My husband is from Albequerque and we go to Pereas for huevos rancheros when in town. It's the best. Eggs any way you like. Choice of red or green chili and both are great and not too hot. Get hash brown and or beans and corn or flour tortillas. Any way you like it. Won't disappoint you. Great service too... More
