Average local restaurant. You will have a good meal but nothing spectacular. Great if you just want good basic local food at a reasonable cost. I do recommend the sopapilla burger!

This is one of the best New Mexican restaurants in Albuquerque. The staff is friendly and Monica is just a wonderful person. The food is the best. We eat there at least once a month or more. The price is reasonable.

I had delicious pork marinated , carne adovada, in red chile sauce. My partner had excellent chicken enchiladas. I had a yummy IPA brewed in Santa fe. The restaurant is homey, service super friendly, helpful and efficient. Highly recommend.

The food was delicious, nice ambiance in Old Town Albuquerque and the staff were very friendly. Having never been to New Mexico before, they were great at recommending things for us to try.
