We stopped for lunch here, and were pleasantly surprised. The owner, Michael, has made his menu an effort to have everything come out close to perfect. Mostly sandwiches, salads, and New Mexican. Prices are reasonable, portions aren't huge but also not dinky. Had the Phiily. One of the best I have had in Albuquerque, and other places we have visited... More

Most of the food is as good with the exception of the hamburger and fries. The hamburger is a lot smaller and very dry. It is like eating a hockey puck and does not taste very good. The fries are not nearly as good as previous ones were.

The food here is really great. They go out of their way to cook things the way you like it. The food is so good that I eat there almost everyday when I am in town. The best thing I like is that they treat us like family.

There are a few things wrong with this review. First, Milton's closed over a year ago. The location on Central is now the location for a new restaurant with new owners called Gravy. Second, the address shown above (3351 Candelaria) is not where the map shows this restaurant to be. The Milton's was on Central just west of I-25. I'm... More

Milton's on Central is an Albuquerque icon. Originally a Denny's restaurant in the 60s, some of the original decor remains. The restaurant has been used by movie and TV production companies as a location, which has lent a spruced-up look to the interior. The staff is always friendly. They offer free wi-fi. But the real draw here? Milton's is the... More

If you want a decently priced, well prepared, good breakfast (and I would think lunch) then this is the spot. It's like every other good diner you'll ever eat at and that's a good thing. The decor is non-existant - it's been like this for 40 years and will stay like this until it's torn down (horrors!!) It's not in... More

Not allot to say about this place. Its an old dive of a diner. We went for breakfast on Saturday morning. The only reason we went was because It was directly across from our hotel. I will say I was little nervouse when we went in but after sitting down was pleasantly surprised. The staff was very friendly and the... More
