This is a fine example of a local favorite. It is certainly not overrun with tourists, but you will find many Bernalillo residents there. My wife and I had lunch here, and the food was wonderful. I had the Chile relleno plate which came with...More

We came here because a local recommended it. Really good food. Get the shredded beef, it's so good. The server was really surprised that my gringo looking (she is) girl could eat their green chili. Hot stuff. Dinner food is better than the sopapillas here.

For New Mexican food this place is pretty good. The green chile can sometimes be very hot but the servers are good about warning you. I get it on the side and then I can put on as much as I need. The only negative...More

Visited Abuelita's for dinner and were underwhelmed by the quality of the food. Service was polite and swift, but the cuisine left a lot to be desired.
