The management is taking advantage of the fact that their customer base is not likely to return nor likely to expect much; just a beer to pass the time and a quick bite to fight off the hunger. No expectation by management to serve anything healthy or tasty. Pros: convenient Cons: greasy, mundane, tasteless.

Stopped for lunch on my way out of town. Had the salad with grilled chicken ($16.99) and a glass of wine ($9.99). Relative to all airport food it was above average. Quiet tables.

My wife and I visited for a meal prior to our flight. The service was prompt and food good. Our major complaint was the French fries and onion rings as a side were skimpy given the cost of the sandwiches. You must try the green chile beer which is delicious. Santa Fe, NM

I was in town for a few days and flew out of here on a Sunday morning.  While waiting for my flight I stopped in here for breakfast and tried the BLT sandwich with egg.  It was a good sandwich and I was happy with it.  The ingredients were stacked high and the egg was freshly cooked.  The orange juice...

Try a local brew before you leave ABQ. They have several to choose from IPA or stout even chili! The food is good too. Great choice if you have time stop and sample.

I had the grilled chicken sandwich with onion rings. WOW! I wasn't expecting this to be so delicious! Too bad we have to go through security... The service was terrific. Our sweet waitress (??Aprilynn??) made sure we got our food and was able to pay in plenty of time to catch our flight. I wish they had a location in... More

Stopped in for a beer, while waiting for a flight. The service at the bar was friendly and professional. They have an excellent selection of draft beers, which are both cold and tasty. I tried a pale ale, which I recommend highly. I would not hesitate to stop in again.

This might be the worst airport restaurant we have ever eaten at. We ordered safe food, we thought, - a Cesar salad which even if they use ranch dressing you think can't go wrong. Well it did. The lettuce was wilted, at least two days old, and the dressing so tangy it was almost inedible. My traveling companion order a... More

Restaurant is in the Airport in between the two terminals, fast service, good eats. Started with a tower of onion rings, looked great but were on pretty good. Had the Cuban sandwich, growing up in South Florida i am a pretty good judge of them. This was on a scale of 1-10 about an 8, very tasty but just not... More
