We always take out of town friends here for the Mexican food and the views! BAD EXPERIENCE! We called ahead to tell them we were going to be late for our reservation, they didn't have it on their books. We got a table INSIDE by the window, but wanted outside when we booked it. We waited a long time after... More

The views were breathtaking! The food was awful! Several of us ordered the different versions of the street tacos and while we were eating, no one wanted to come out and say how awful they were until we got home. I had the street tacos with yellow corn tortillas and chicken. I expected the tacos to have chicken and cilantro... More

Decided to eat before heading up on the tram since the place was not busy. Our server was awesome and the restaurant has been beautifully renovated, however the food was lacking. If the food tasted as good as they presented it, they'd have something going. The Duck Confit tacos looked promising, but the duck was bland and unseasoned. Bison burger... More

Let me start by saying that Sandiago's Mexican Grill closed last year and TripAdvisor has not updated their site. It has reopened as Sandiago's Grill at the Tram. The menu is not the same. We arrived early for our reservation and we're seated immediately. Our drink order was taken, plus we ordered a delicious appetizer at the same time. Turned... More

Ate here after our tram ride. Great restaurant with good views over ABQ especially as the sun went down. We had enchiladas and mix and match street tacos. Was tempted by the Bosque lager, but at 8% abv and 7000' above sea level - discretion was the better part of valour. Our server, Maggie, was a delight and greatly enhanced... More

We stopped to eat dinner before taking the tram at sunset. The restaurant was not busy on a weeknight and we were seated right away. The wait staff was very helpful but the food was mediocre at best. The first dish I ordered was so hot (spicy) that I could not taste anything, the waitstaff was nice and took it... More

While waiting to take the Scandia Crest Tram,we decided to have a "lunch with a terrific view". Overlooking the Rio Grande Valley,with an amazing vista,we dined on an exquisite shrimp salad and a tasty Bison burger. The lunch was quickly served by Jeff who was totally professional yet very personable. He offered some interesting insights into the local area that... More

After an amazing tram ride we enjoyed lunch at Sandiago's which is located at the base of the Sandia Peak Tramway. We had delicious street tacos and the service was quick and pleasant. I know you will enjoy it, too.

After coming down on the tramway on a cold, rainy day, our server suggested we try the soup of the day which was a chicken, vegetable soup. It was a great choice. She seated us by the window which had a great view of the valley below.
