This used to be our "staple restaurant". Whenever we did not know what we wanted to eat, The Quarters was our restaurant. We were there at least once a week. Since the new owners, prices went up, service went down. All the regulars are gone. Even the wait staff that we had come to know are mostly gone. It's sad.

Since the restaurant has been sold, prices have gone up, and quality has gone down. I used to love coming here for a quick, not fast food meal but now it has lost it's appeal.

hometown bar b que. Local crowd at the bar. Nice patio, but isn't used a lot only by the smokers. Would like to see the patio used more - music, dog friendly etc. Nice and shaded in the evening.

An old Albuquerque establishment. First went here in 1976. Never have had a bad meal here. Want to feast for 6-8 people? Try Platters of Crab legs, Ribs and a BBQ platter.

Sadly this New Mexico icon of excellent food, and a REAL pour from the bar is only a distant memory from the past. The only remnant of the past is in the few original Nellos servers that somehow managed to escape the down grad of the restaurant. In less than a year this New Mexico ICON has been reduced to just another restaurant...overpriced, under poured,and average food. It was " let's give it another try, I'm craving Quarter's ribs" that beckoned us back in for 1 last try. It could not have been just bad luck or the full moon,it was poor quality of food,and lack of professionalism of the kitchen staff, that allowed both rib sandwiches to be nothing more than jerky on a rib bone. No doubt the ribs had been sliced for the lunch crowd and held over for the 1st unsuspecting dinner orders. Obviously the owners do not stress " if you would not eat it do not serve it". The concern for level of quality of product served to the customers come from the top. Clearly this is no longer a Connie Nellos restaurant.
