“A gem in Old Town Albuquerque”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

Our first visit to Albuquerque, poking around Old Town we saw this small restaurant. The day's special was their New Mexico Gumbo. Sounded intriguing so we had it, $4.50 plus $2 to add chips, salsa and a drink. Wow! Chips were warm blue corn with an awesome salsa. The gumbo was very tasty, spicy with excellent flavors. Excellent value, friendly staff, what's not to like.

“Great place and wonderful food”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Old town Albuquerque was blocked off. I was on crutches, having lots of trouble getting around, and stumbled into this small place by accident. These people could not have been nicer, and the food.....wow, the food was out of this world! Gourmet tacos and burritos! I had two of their breakfast buritos, was very sorry I had no time to go back or to sit down and enjoy much more of it. They couldn't have been more helpful to me as far as service, either.

“A Real Find”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

We found this excellent little cafe after a tour of Albuquerque earlier today - and the food was that good I ordered a second helping! The staff are incredibly friendly, and our food was promptly delivered to our table. I highly recommend the pork street tacos, but the duck tacos were very tasty too! The food is also very affordable, with dishes starting from $5. Go ahead, treat yourself!

“Friendly, excellent service, good drinks”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

In the midst of Old Town is this little café. The drinks are excellent and the staff could not be nicer. They have free refills and the menu starts at $4.50. This is less "touristy" and more authentic.
