A friend introduced me to Model Pharmacy and I had come by again. The food is really good and the old time soda fountain is great. The couple of times that I've been there, the service is always friendly and quick. Definitely worth a stop...More

After driving by Model Pharmacy hundreds of times we finally stopped in for lunch. Plenty of onsite parking but beware this is located at one corner of a 5 corner intersection. Entrance is through the pharmacy's gift shop. You can seat yourself at either the...More

The soda fountain menu is pretty extensive and one can customize most of them. I opted out for a shake whose price was worth the flavor, size and the fact it was hand-made and topped with delicious whipped cream. I didn't taste any of the...More

More than just a good local Pharmacy, this place boasts an old time soda fountain. All the best flavors of Malts, Shakes, Rickeys and Phosphates. Very good ice cream by itself too!

I always get the same thing because it's hard to deviate from wonderful- side salad fresh and tasty, server attentive but not intrusive; great things to look at cards, soaps, truffles, things for your hair- always pleasant!

The lunch counter at the Model Pharmacy, whose address is 3636 Monte Vista Boulevard where it meets Carlisle and Lomas Boulevrads, is wonderful. The place has a real lunch counter but also some tables and has waiter service. It's like an old-fashioned soda fountain, what...More

I love visiting this place everytime I come back to Albuquerque. They have a small diner in the store that serves excellent food. They also have an old fashioned soda machine. The pharmacy itself has tons of fragrances for both men and women, soaps, shaving...More
