The food here is always good. Seems quite authentic with very tasty chili and a great variety of fresh enchiladas, burritos, etc. The service is excellent. They serve a house wine that is very good and serve an excellent selection of margaritas. The dining room overlooks a water fall and beautifully landscaped area near the patio seating. I highly recommend... More

I've eaten here three times in the past week. The salsa is the best I've ever had. The carne adovada was completely devoid of fat and had the perfect red chile bite. The chile relleno was large, well filled, fresh and crunchy. The chicken chile relleno could have used more cheese but was still good. The service was first rate.... More

We visit New Mexico to see friends and each New Mexican cuisine. OK, so we also do other things, but these are high on the list! We have visited many times but this was our first time to Casa de Benavidez, and it was a lovely change to our itinerary. The food was very good - not my favorite green... More

Very nice restaurant with a coy pond and water fall. There is seating inside and out. The wait staff was very pleasant and helpful. We all had a traditional meal which was fresh and tasty. It was a great time to catch up with old friends.

My wife and I went here for an early dinner after work. We were seated on the patio which, aside from the passing, noisy car, was a pleasant experience. They had live music as well. The service was, unfortunately, slow. However, when we did have the attention of our waiter we were serviced just fine. The food, I thought, was... More

We went to this place from a recommendation of a friend. We pulled up and went in a door. Not looking above the door which says "coffee shop" It looked like a fast food place but we went ahead and ordered and sat down to eat when I saw some people coming out of this other door. I asked the... More

I had heard about this restaurant from the information desk at the Albuquerque International Airport. I had also asked about this restaurant when I checked into my hotel and both times I was told this was one of the best Mexican restaurants in Albuquerque. I decided to check it out for dinner on my first night there. The restaurant is... More

Came for lunch and loved the Sopapilla Burger and the Stuffed Sopapilla. Reasonably priced and the service was good too.

We came here on a Thursday and were disappointed to not be able to sit on the patio as there was a private party. We did get to sit by the window overlooking the patio, however. We were not attended to for what seemed to be a long wait (not even water or a greeting). Our waitress finally arrived and... More

Stopped for lunch, delicious! I had had huevos rancheros and sopapillas. Green chili was great and even the hash browns were yummy. The beans tasted like they were made fresh. Just the right amount of cheese too. Service was slow and several times Staff just looked at us and moved on- no water, no chips. I still gave it 5... More
