Enjoyed several small plates on the patio, near the chicken coop!! Buffalo cauliflower, spring rolls and the tacos. All yummy, super fresh, made-to-order and free refill in the ice-tea. Nice treat and the patio is a hoot, rather a cluck! Never knew chickens were cooped up on Central Ave. check it out, EDo cool.

Everyone told me I must eat here. The food was fine. I had steak frites and it was a 4 out of 10. The food also took a long time to come out. Service was excellent.

For those seeking a chill, local place to grab a coffee and some fresh food. We happened upon A&B's lunchbox when we were visiting downtown ABQ for an event at Kimo Theater. It was a Sunday afternoon and the weather was perfect. We ordered the specials: strawberry pecan waffles, a ham panini, and mushroom bacon soup. All were fresh and... More

It was super close to our hotel so we would often walk over there if we missed breakfast at the hotel. Lovely little back garden you can sit in and have your breakfast. Service was great. Coffee...

We were in the area for business and had limited time for lunch and walked to the Lunchbox for lunch. Almost went by it as it didn't look that inviting but a co-worker had stated they had been there before and that it was good. Went inside and wondered where we were all going to sit until I realized that... More

This is a funky little breakfast/lunch spot near downtown. We decided to check them out because we had a coupon. They refused to honor the coupon which kinda sets the mood don't you think? A little bait and switch. We had already fed the meter and everybody was hungry so we stayed. The place is tiny, not much seating at... More
