If you want to have authentic New Mexican food to include delicious red and green chili, this is the place to eat. It is family owned and is located in the heart of Los Lunas. The service is friendly and fast. This is one of my family's favorite restaurants.

Best place in Los Lunas for real NM food. Breakfast was outstanding. The Red Chile was perfect and Tortillas home made. Loved it. The service was just as good.

This is definitely a favorite. Whenever we have family or friends in from out of town we bring them here. The huevos rancheros with carne adovada is amazingly good!

We visit TJ's at least three times or more a month. Their juevos rancheros are the breakfast of choice. The posole is great (we buy it by the quart), and the carne adovada is unparalleled.

Tastiest, most reasonably priced huevos rancheros in Los Lunas. I like the red chile and my husband likes the green. Very fresh and authentic New Mexican. Comes with beans and choice of papitas or hashbrowns. We eat here on a regular basis and have for years!!! Always consistent and good with friendly service.

I finally went and tried TJs today and I was amazed. Great service. Was almost full and we still got our order within 10 minutes. I will be going there again.

This is super New Mexican and Mexican food … sadly they have an overtly Christian attitude and atmosphere, which is rather unpleasant, and certainly discouraged us from returning there, and we were customers for many years. I'm not going to deny that the food is super good, because it is, I just wasn't comfortable there.

The food and service are always very good. We come here regularly and appreciate the family friendly atmosphere. It's a greatly little restaurant and the food is very good. Keep in mind they're closed on Mondays.

My wife and her Mom ate here last month and raved about it. So, when my wife and I were coming back to Albuquerque from T or C, we decided it was time for me to try it. I was not disappointed! We even got there not long before closing, but were seated and taken care of as if they... More
