“Consistantly good stuff.”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

This used to be a small hole in the wall place in a strip mall next door years ago. My wife and I have been enjoying their foor for around 30 years. We are headed there tonight actually. I always say that I am going to get something different, but I go for the Big Three on the menu with green chili. That includes most of what they have to offer. I do think that they make the best chili relenos. Crispy on the outside and light and flakey on the inside. The salsa is great, a little bite and not too hot with a lot of flavor. Now they have a small selection of beer and wine. AHHHHHHHH, a cold beer with great New Mexican food. Can't beat that. Enjoy.

“Good, yummy”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

I was recommended this place by a local. It is yummy! I am a vegetarian and they had some vegetarian options and said they could make anything vegetarian for me. I had the chile relleno stuffed with guac. It was delicious - a very real New Mexican flavor experience. If I remember, they are not open on weekends (check their website).

“Fantastic Food and Service”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

La Salita is a favorite of mine in Albuquerque. Whenever I'm in town I swing by for some awesome chili dishes. Great food and awesome customer service. This is a wonderful restaurant run by a very friendly family.

“I now like Mexican food”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

I have never been a fan of Mexican restaurants or their food. Give me tacos at home and I'm happy. But this place is awesome. Greatest salsa waiting on the table. Chili relenos are awesome.
