Lunch. two different combination plates, both done very well. I often judge a Mexican restaurant by its rellenos, and this was very good. Priced right; good value. 5 miles east of freeway on Lomas.

I was visiting Albuquerque this weekend. My uncle decided to take me to lunch and recommended Los Cuates. The restaurant is very nice and modern. This service was excellent and the environment was very comfortable and clean. I ordered the Fajitas and they give you a choice of steak or chicken or you can get both for the same price which I thought was an excellent deal.

There was plenty of meat and the meal was very tasty. My uncle had the sampler which was excellent as well. Refills are free on pop and the sopapilas for desert were excellent. I have eaten at many Mexican restaurants over the years but this one definitely stood out to me. I would happily recommend it and eat there again. I have attached some photos for your review.

If you wish to experience real New Mexican cuisine, Los Cuates is the perfect stop. They have their own salsa to go with your free chips, and every meal comes with sopapillas. You have to try the chili's, it's what New Mexican food is all about. First time to New Mexico? It works like this, when you place your order, say you want green, or red, or Christmas (both green and red) and you'll look like an expert. The green chili's tend to be less spicy but that depends on taste and the crop that year. If you are shy about spicy food, get it on the side! Get a margarita to go with your food and you are set! Make sure to go to the place on Lomas or try it at the airport, those are the two best locations with the best service.

It seems like everyone has a favorite New Mexican restaurant depending on the dish they are craving. So if you are craving green chile chicken enchiladas, Los Cuates is the place to go. Some additional pluses include their unique salsa and chips which come warmed and promptly to the table when you arrive. If you are in the mood for libations, their mixologist will make a margarita on the rocks that is both traditional and rememberable.

Best New Mexican, all the locals eat here! good prices excellent food great service. Nothing bad on the menu! Chile is mild and flavorful. Get your water before you start on the chips and their salsa cause it sneaks up on you! Their blue corn enchilladas are my favorite, And be sure and leave room for the Sopapillas and honey. Fantastic! Often crowded with locals and still moves fast. Three locations in town and one at the airport and in Santa fe. Cheap, filling and flavorful, plus all the locals. How can you loose
