They claim that the small sandwiches are on special, until I tell them i want the beef, and then IT is not on special (this is only the one on Yale, btw, the one on Montgomery does beef), just the other ones I did not pick, so I got the "special" consisting of meat slices you might find at the...

Quarters BBQ food really is, as KFC commercials used to brag, "finger lickin' good." It's messy to the hands and delicious on the tongue. And the portions are more than ample.

I have eaten lunch here several times. Despite a rather strange looking front (the place has no windows), the food, service and prices are acceptable and they have a nice selection of beer.

I was taken here for a business dinner and am still trying to figure out why. The outside of the building is not inviting and not clear where you should enter. Once you're in it doesn't get much better. It is dark and needs new furniture and carpet. Everything is run down. The food is okay, I've had way better... More

We recently had a birthday celebration here with about 12 guests and the service was absolutely terrible. The waitress spent most of her time talking and laughing with other employees and friends who were there just to visit. Our meals took way too long to arrive and most were cold when we got them. However, we chose not to wait... More

My husband is regularly in Albuquerque on business and on this trip, I decided to tag along. We stayed in a hotel close to Quarters just so he could take me there. It was wing night, and I absolutely love wings but I have to be VERY careful of MSG additives in the sauces that are used as I am... More

Quarters came up on our GPS as traveling thru ABQ. As huge BBQ fans we gave it a try! We almost missed it as it is an unassuming looking adobe building not screaming it's a restaurant. BBQ and other dinner/steak items served in a bar. There is also a restaurant area but the bar had better ambiance so we ate... More

Great BBQ in a local hangout. Customers and employees were an enthusiastic group. Also, nearby is Quarters liquor store- the closest one near where we stayed the night.
