Looked for a late night Mexican place and this one was open until 10PM. The food was decent and the portions huge. The margaritas were a bit pricey but fresh pours, not a mix. I tried the beef enchilada and chicken chalupa both were fresh and well prepared.

Good selection of new Mexican food. The carne adovada (sic) is the best. The place is a roomy, upscale dinner, prices are fair. Service is more than good and friendly. A must visit place if you are in Albuquerque!

We went with a large family group. The portions were huge, food was wonderful. Great entertainment as well. The waitress also did separate checks, which was most appreciated. Highly recommended.

This was definitely a local place who had a long history of serving good Mexican food. Arriving shortly after 5:00pm we were just ahead of the rush although the restaurant was close to full when we were seated. Upfront the wait staff was excellent. Both girls took good care and also helped with recommendations. I ordered a pork tamale and chili relleno. They were served with wonderful pinto beans and my dish had a potato hash included. The tamale and chili relleno were very good. I asked for the green verde sauce and my plate was covered stem to stern with it. Next time I will ask for the sauce on the side for more control and also to appreciate where one item started and the other left off. The food was hot both in heat and spice and very good taste. The guacamole and salsa were very good as well....

Sadie's lunch sampler is a humongus portion of New Mexican cuisine that first appears to astound for value. Probably nowhere else on the planet where you can get this weight of food for about $8. As you eat however, the idea of value quickly evaporates. Beans mixed with potatoes tasting like morning hash. Gobs of cheap tasteless cheese. Packets of chicken in a taco having little taste. More and more the mounds of food on my plate started looking like leftovers which I didn't care to take home. After we had our water refilled, it became undrinkable...tasting as if the ice was a month old. Service was the one bright spot, but it couldn't pull this rating from a single star.
