If you are looking for great New Mexican food with reasonable prices, Monroe's is hard to beat. This is one of our all time favorite Albuquerque restaurants. Their food is consistently delicious, the service is fantastic, the atmosphere is comfortable, and the red chile is to die for. Breakfast - Lunch or Dinner - Monroe's is the place to go.

Visited Monroe’s based on earlier reviews while traveling thru NM. Best Chili Rellano ever and others had enchilada platers which were also excellent.

Had the burrito carne adovado platter, it did not disappoint. It filled the plate and was flavorful but wish I had stuck to the red chile. Pleasant and efficient staff. Decently price

My boyfriend and I went with my family to Monroe’s for dinner. Restaurant space is bigger then it looks from outside. Food was amazing, staff was very helpful with questions about menu. Chile was very flavorful and a level of spicy. Wait staff was very attentive to us. Frito pie was amazing and their salsa is one of my favorites.
