We have been to El Bruno in Cuba a few times, and are always thrilled with their Carne Adovada. This location in Albuquerque also has the same excellent dish, our favorite, probably the best that we have had in town.

The food at El Bruno’s was average at best. They forgot our sopapias and often neglected our empty drinks. The dining table was so dark it was hard to see each other and our food. I would try another restaurant in Albuquerque.

El Brunos is located in the valley on forth Street. Great lunch,. Had stuffed sopapilla with red and green chili. Today th green was hotter but the flavor was better. Red hada nice toasted flavor.

Poor service, overpriced food, and not the quality expected from El Bruno. Inconsistent, possibly based on day of week, chef. Don't recommend a Sunday night visit.
