The Owl Café in Albuquerque is supposed to be a clone of the original Owl Café which is located in San Antonio, New Mexico, and is famous for its green chile cheeseburgers. This Owl's food is pretty good, but not spectacular. And the ambiance is...More

Whenever I travel to Albuquerque I always stop and eat at this retro cafe. It's my favorite place to eat in Albuquerque, very nostalgic. There always seems to be classic cars parked outside which is an added bonus if you're into that sort of thing....More

Directly off the freeway, easy access. Right away 3 different seating selections (bar, table, booth.) Daily specials, full menu, beer on tap. Hostess and waitress friendly and informative. Southwestern cooking!

We stopped for breakfast and dinner. This did not disappoint us! The food was great again and they even let us order breakfast since we only have 5 minutes before they stopped serving! We now go here every time we are in Albuquerque.

We stopped in for dinner and had the cheese enchiladas with red sauce, which were served flat and stacked. This was the way our family in New Mexico has always made them, not rolled as in many restaurants. We also had the tamales with green...More

What a great place to grab a burger and fries. We sat at the counter and had excellent service. We split the melt and they brought it out on two plates. The fries could have been hotter which was a surprise because they were so...More
