Top 10 restaurants in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, United States

April 14, 2018 Tynisha Seiler

Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, known locally simply as "Los Ranchos" or "The Village," is a village in Bernalillo County, New Mexico, United States. The population was 6,024 at the 2010 Census. Part of the Albuquerque Metropolitan Statistical Area, Los Ranchos is located on the east side of the Rio Grande, adjacent to the unincorporated North Valley area. Los Ranchos is surrounded on three sides by the larger city of Albuquerque, and its location astride busy transportation routes has been a source of friction with its larger neighbor, as Los Ranchos' efforts to maintain its rural character conflicts with Albuquerque's desire to enhance transportation. Like the North Valley and Corrales, Los Ranchos is an expensive, mostly rural area with widely spaced large houses and dense vegetation.

From the moment we walked in we felt at home in this colorful place. Maybe it was the free crunchy cinnamon cookies or the playful banter which accompanied them but we sure felt welcome. Pizza, salad, milkshake, chai latte - all delicious and too much food.

Vernon's Speakeasy

Vernon's Hidden Valley Steakhouse is the only speak easy in New Mexico! We feature exquisite steaks and seafood in a superb dining atmosphere. The culmination of live music, great food and top notch service, as well as the need for "the Password", create an atmosphere and dining experience that surely proves to be one of a kind.

Reviewed By Dorothy M - Albuquerque, New Mexico

My husband and I went here on a Wednesday night in February just to break out of some winter blues, and we were both pleased with how everything went. First, we enjoyed the "speakeasy" atmosphere as we gave the password and entered the building. The guy who gave us "the rules" stayed in character the whole time and it was fun and set the mood for the restaurant. We had drinks in the lounge first as we were early, and Jose the bartender made sure my husband and I were both happy with our drinks. We moved to the dining room and ordered dinner. I had the French onion soup and it was, hands down, the best French onion soup I've ever had. (And I order it regularly when we eat out.) I also had the prime rib, mashed potatoes, sauteed mushrooms, and the side of the night was broccoli. Absolutely everything was amazing, even the broccoli! We were impressed with the flavor of each item. The staff was attentive, but not intrusive. Our waitress was friendly and professional, and she made sure our orders were right and checked with us to make sure we were satisfied. The restaurant itself has very tasteful decor and atmosphere with dark tablecloths and candles. Both the lounge and the eating areas were dimly but adequately lit, keeping in character with the "speakeasy" nature of the place. It is unique in that you feel "hidden away" from the rest of Albuquerque in this secret location. It is pricey, but I think it's worth experiencing at least once.

Albuquerque, don't let this place go....I first tried their truffles at Cashmere Chocolate in Taos....I didn't realize the truffles were made by Grace! I stopped in on a whim...the corner shop on North Fourth across from Prime. What luck! What joy! The owner's are lovely people, Grace and another gal have me a sample of their curry coconut truffle filling....oohhh, so subtly delicious! Can't wait to go back...I aim to try each latte..home made syrups..coconut mango, here I come!!

Wecks

Reviewed By moondog1961 - New Braunfels, Texas

We stopped in a Weck's for a quick breakfast. It was a Sunday morning and very busy, mostly families. I recommend getting here before church lets out.

Most of their menu is built around hash browns. But they also have the usual other stuff. Their goal is to fill you up and so the portions are pretty huge. I saw the pancakes at the next table and it seemed like one person would have trouble eating that volume of food.

I had one of their breakfast bowls. Mostly hashbrowns, mixed with sausage ham and bacon, with chili and a fried egg on top. It was really good and very filling.

Staff was quick. Everybody was friendly. The food was delicious. Definitely worth a trip.

Casa Rondena Winery

Reviewed By Geoff N - Santa Fe, New Mexico

Over priced wine for New Mexico, service is marginal, server seemed more interested in stuffing his face than attending to customers. Property needs maintenance, you would think they would take more pride in the property, especially with what they charge for the wine. Unique property, give it a D+.

Fast food cooked to order. Great selection of toppings esp if you want chilies! The corn dogs are so perfect you might think you were at a state fair. Do not forget one of their hand made milk shakes. Plenty to love about Blakes either drive thru or eat in.

Service was outstanding, food was prepared perfectly, the restaurant was clean, and the food is predictably excellent. Prices are fair and modifications to any order are welcome.

Thai Vegan

Reviewed By 194BrianB - Phnom Penh, Cambodia

When Russian historian, Andre Zubov (4 months my senior), spoke those words when commenting upon Russia's confiscation of Ukraine and the Crimea a few years ago, he may never have thought his instruction to us all would someday be applied in a restaurant review. But, in this case, I consider its application both generalizable and well deserved. The food served up at Thai Vegan in Albuquerque presents the simultaneously simple & complex taste of Thai cuisine in all its glory. While you will not find Nirvana in this food, you will find truth in the taste produced from quality ingredients and acculturated skill in cooking. Similar to the final exams of the great culinary institutes of Europe requiring their students to produce an exquisite 'onion soup' to graduate, Thai Vegan's chef produces an exquisite green (hot), red (mild), and yellow (medium) curry accompanied by mixed vegetables and steamed rice on a daily basis. Those curries are the staple tastes of their business. And, they do not disappoint. I had the yellow curry with Tofu added to mix. During the hour in the restaurant, the aromas invaded my olfactory canals, and, the tastes bordered on the sublime. The 'Vegan' in the house's title translates here to the fact that options of vegan shrimp, vegan chicken, and vegan pork, all made from soy, are on offer as extras to nearly any dish on the menu. And, glancing around the room at what other patrons had ordered, the looks on the faces were those of very satisfied customers - most probably returnees. Thai Vegan gets an enthusiastic thumbs up from this patron. I'll be back!

Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen

Reviewed By Bike-Chaplain

Happy Hour time can be a blast with friends. But, what if your solo? I was on me own (waiting for someone to finish her girlfriend party nearby). I decided to frequent the bar at Pappadeaux. When I arrived at 5:30 pm the bar was pretty much empty. A warm welcome greeted me. Soon the bar filled up. I had lively conversations with the bartenders and new friendly strangers sitting next to me. But, the star was the “Happy Hour” boiled shrimp (8 large succulent shrimp in a nice slightly hot sauce), with a boiled skin on small potato and a half a cob of corn. The food was delicious and more than hit the spot. Washing it down with a pint of La Cumbre Beer. My initial loneliness, turned into a very fun time. I now have an excellent solo party spot..:). Thanks Pappadeaux. And thank you for reading. Avram

The Range Cafe

Reviewed By Susanna S

My husband and I came here for breakfast, second time in a couple years. (We aren’t from here). Once again we had a delicious breakfast with expanded options from the first time. He had fruit w/house made granola & yogurt, bacon in the side. He said it was absolutely perfect: granola was fresh & delicious, & the Bacon was some of the best he’s ever had.
I had the blue corn pancakes with blueberries and pine nuts—-original and filling, very good. They also had a great looking quinoa bowl simmered in almond milk with fruit for vegans. And if course, huevos rancheros & other classic SW dishes. Recommended. We will be back.
