“Another slice of Southwest Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Easy access to the restaurant in the Hotel Albuquerque next to Old Town Albuquerque. Try the north side hotel entrance by the big parking lot; Garduno's is just inside the door on the right. Our meal visit was early afternoon just after the noon rush. Had the entire restaurant to ourselves; guest greeter and table service (Aaron V.) were extremely courteous, timely, and willing to make the meal memorable. Red & Green chile sauces had a kick to them, but that is what you visit New Mexico for when you come. Plentiful food and reasonably priced. There are several Garduno's in Albuquerque, but this location next to Old Town is perfect for that visitor. And the Margarita didn't disappoint either!

“Yum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

We wanted good Mexican food as soon as we arrived in New Mexico and Garduno's did not disappoint. It was somewhat hard to find as we didn't realize it was in a hotel. The food was excellent and the service terrific. Our server, Leo, was extremely helpful with suggestions on what to do while we were in town. Make sure to order the guacamole if you eat here. Outstanding!

The service was very slow, the food was just average. Perhaps they are not staffed enough during high season or when there seem to be large conventions booked in the hotel

“WOW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Great service.
Very well prepared Mexican food.
Everything was very fresh and seasoned with perfection. Even the chips had very little grease. The green and red salsas were spicy and delicious. The sweet corn cake was an excellent touch.
And the surprise hot empanadas with honey were yummy.
The restaurant is beautifully
We are looking forward to returning.
