This is the BEST in Albuquerque! I have been eating here for almost 30 years, and the food is consistently the BEST there is! Sorry about the reviewer from Texas, but then he is from "Texas", what should we expect...Texmex? Sorry, I HATE food that is corrupted with Tobasco sauce and Jalapenos! This is New Mexico GREEN CHILE land! I grew up eating REAL, Mexican food. (My grandparents owned land in Mexico and Left during the horrors of the last revolution. My great uncle was a Christero.) Anyway, the food at La Salita is totally unique and amazing! Cindy has been cooking there forever, although she doesn't look it! Her food is rather unique as she adds a gourmet touch to it; using turkey and other ingredients that add additional flavor to the food. The Friday special is by FAR the BEST carne adovada in Albuquerque!!! If you are in Albuquerque, this place is a MUST! (It is extremely busy, so be prepared for a short wait if you arrive during peak hours. (This alone should be a HUGE hint, as the locals absolutely LOVE this place and it is really busy, especially on Fridays for the special! The fact that the cheap geeks from Sandia National Labs absolutely thrive on this food should say it all! AWESOME FOOD AT GREAT PRICES! (Always try the special of the day!)
