“Special place for breakfast or lunch.”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 via mobile

Consistently good food plus a hug. If Tim is there you will meet him. Tim is a nationally known local success and quite inspirational. He does inspirational speeches on the side.

“Lunch at the footnofnthe Sandia Mountains”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

We went to Tim's Place hoping to meet (and get a hug from) Tim. But he wasn't there. But don't just go for the hug, the lunch was terrific. Huge chicken salad sandwich, great serving of onion rings, and the berry tart was the best! Friendly staff, great menu, don't miss the opportunity for a meal here while in Albuquerque. And if you have the time and ambition, keep driving and walk through the nature trails of Sandia Mountain.

“Great food with a side of love”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

With a kickass breakfast & lunch menu, this restaurant is worthy of a visit when in Albuquerque.
Tim, a truly wonderful young man, greets you and doles out hugs which will brighten even the darkest of days. The wait staff is prompt and very friendly. The cinnamon buns are fantastic and look like they've been on steroids - they're huge! I wish every restaurant would be this great. Hey Tim, maybe you ought to franchise!

“Hugs & Lunch with Great Service”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

A stop at Tim's Place is well worth a trip to the Heights of Albuquerque. Tim greets most customers personally and welcomes them to his restaurant. Tim will even give you a hug in thanks for coming.
The menu selections are diverse so you'll find something you like. We had trouble choosing as each items sounded great. A Reuben and a Cheeseburger were the final choices and we had no regrets. Well presented, tasty, more than enough to fill my stomach. The choice of fries, soup or salad with the sandwich was a nice adder - took a salad.
Our waiter gave top shelf service and was both he and Tim checked on us to make sure everything was okay.
This will be a regular stop for us as we traverse Albuquerque.
