Stopped here for lunch before taking the Sandia Tram while on vacation. It's located at the base of the Tram, with a window seat you can see the mountain and if timing is right see a tram go up or down. Service was v e r y s l o w here. It took awhile to place an order even though the place was pretty much empty. Then it took a long time for my meal to arrive, and my medium well burger was burnt to a crisp. The burger would have been fine if not burnt, but I didn't have time to wait for them to cook another. Not only that the waiter never came back to check on me until I was nearly done. The Kettle chips were blah. The Lemonade was good. But it even took a long time to get the waiter to come back to ask for my check. Then the waiter said he would check with his manager to see if he could give me a discount on the burger. Little did I know that this meant he had to CALL his manager because the manager is not onsite. After another long wait (because he couldn't get through to his manager apparently), the next tram had arrived and I planned on taking that one. I didn't really care that much about a discount, told him to forget it. Probably won't eat here again, maybe just have a drink if a window seat on the mountain side is open.Thank you for taking the time to leave us a detailed review. We never like to hear that our guests had a less than satisfactory visit. However, we take our guest feedback very seriously, as we appreciate every opportunity to grow and improve our service.

Enjoyed lunch there today! The chips were nice & warm & the salsa was just right! The chicken tacos were excellent & my husband's meal was great too. Yes, the restrooms were nice & clean but this particular day the service was slow, & slower. We might try it again, but only if we had plenty of time.

El Patron

Very new restaurant. Moved into one of the closed Garduno's after they filed bankruptcy.

I love NM Mexican food. Everything should be as it was at El Patron. The chips & salsa, the enchiladas, sopapillas, and Iced-tea (with lemon). Wonderful, fast and efficient service. I like the decor. It is very conducive for a 2 hour lunch with a dear friend.

Perea's New Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By gcleff11

I'm getting used to these Mom & Pop New Mex joints. Most of them open from--say--7-8AM to 2-3PM, serving hearty breakfasts, and well prepared lunches. This is a local concept that helps to define New Mex cuisine. Not surprisingly, they were packed when we visited, and we had to wait a bit for a table. I was with a couple of tenderfoots, so sauces (red/green) came on the side. Both sauces were amazing. I did their GCC, and while not the best I've had in New Mexico, it was still a solid sender for Hatch flavor. Their complimentary whole wheat Sopapillas on the other hand were stupid good. They greatly enhanced savory bites, and then squeezes of honey at the end of the meal for a sweet bite. Genuinely friendly folks kept the revolving door of patrons pleased and satisfied. Perea's was a total winner, plain and simple...

This is usually a gathering hole for friends and family for me. Last night it was my husbands birthday and he wanted to go there. Evening started off well, despite how busy we got seated fast. After that the service was horrible, our kind waitress was overloaded but didn’t show it.Our food took 4ever, and drinks were great as their margaritas are, when we got them. Food was great as remembered, the worst Sopas ever. Not brown, still white and one was flat didn’t puff at all. Shame on the cooks for letting the Sopas go out looking like that.Considering all the apologies, I expected some kind of compensation. Their chips taste store bought I don’t eat them anymore there. Going on a Saturday night around 630 is not a good idea. Not sure if I ever want to go back there, there are better options in town that the staff take care of you. Dear Lybraq,We appreciate that Papa Felipe's is a favorite watering hole and we're honored that you choose us for the birthday celebration. We're sorry that we let you down on your last visit. You are correct, there is no way the sopas should have come out of the kitchen they way you described them. Despite our best efforts, sometimes we fall short. Please know, if a matter is brought to our attention, we will solve it on the spot. If the server can't take care of the issue, just ask for a manger. We value your business (because, you are right, there are a lot of great food choices in Albuquerque). We also appreciate your review. It helps us know where we can improve. (We've already addressed the sopa issue with the cook on duty). Thanks for your patience. We do look forward to seeing you again.

50's atmosphere, obsessed with cars. A clean, brightly lit fun place. For breakfast, be hungry. Huevos rancheros is superb. Late evening, best green chile cheeseburgers I've ever had, and I've had a lot. Best is the small bowl of beans and green chile served with yor meal. Please make them larger. Jukeboxes on the table with oldies music, a fabulous experience. Staff is friendly and attentive. Thank you

Not 1-in-a-100 Mexican restaurants prepares homemade, fresh chips ... Cranes does, & they are simply outstanding. Freshly hand-made tortillas, fried, then seasoned - served-up hot ... not some kinda Dorito’s or Tostito’s from a bag right outta the Walmart or 7/11 kitchens. So, what else is different at Cranes than the 1000’s of other Mexican eateries???1.) truly wonderful chimichanga’s - order them smothered w/red-Chili sauce ... unless you are a fellow gringo like me, then order the sauce on the side unless you want to chance having your britches-lit-up, as Cranes chili sauces are NOT for the timid; 2.) fine, delicate sopapillas - w/honey naturally; 3.) dessert “flan” - really nicely done w/an unusual, but amazing fruit based sauce. Really tasty. Note: their chili-rellanos are NOT made with traditional mild pablano peppers - don’t know what they use, but they are volcanic. You done been warned. Net/net: really good food; large portions = great value; VERY reasonable prices; served-up by genuinely nice people ... so, what’s not to love about all this???

Just got home from having dinner at La Salita tonight. It was my wife, her Service Dog and I. I had the shredded beef burrito with refried beans, pappas and covered in green chile. My wife had 2 turkey enchiladas with refried beans, pappas and covered in green chile. We also got chips and salsa and sopas. The food was delicious, generous portions and the staff was wonderful. Now that we are home we are all sitting on the couch absolutely stuffed. Great Dinner!!!

It was getting on in lunch time and we saw this little place and pulled in. It is nothing fancy - our French dip and green chili patty melt cake with fries in a basket - but very good. Everything is organic down to the ketchup and GMO free.

Burger Boy

Reviewed By C0urtenayO

Friendly cashier took our order, repeating it back to us to be sure it was correct. It was! Our server was polite and efficient. A very nice young man. The "tots" liked their tot burgers, and the adults liked their burgers too - tasty! Two of us thought they were a little over cooked - the juices were pressed out of them. French fries were crispy, and chips were crunchy. We were there around 1PM and it was busy. It was getting busier when we left at 1:45PM. Locals know this is a better burger place. We'll be back, too!
