We travel to New Mexico a few times a year and always stop here for a delightful lunch. The chips and salsa are tasty, and my favorite dish, the stuffed sopapilla, is absolutely the best (but it's a large dish). They make a really good...More

Our Route 66 trip took us through Gallup NM, where we stayed the night. We always like neighborhood restaurants where the locals eat. Panz Alegra was recommended, so we tried it. Very good choice. The taco dinner was great, the green chili outstanding, and the...More

Met friends here for a drink and appetizers. The wings were very good - moist and juicy. Drinks were reasonably priced. When the juke box was playing, it was hard to hear each other, but then it is a bar. I would recommend the place.

The carne adovada (chunks of pork marinated in red chile) burrito was just ok. Not spicy at all. Do not order red wine as it comes right out of the refrigerator, ice cold and cheap tasting. In all fairness they probably rarely get people who...More

We went here as it was walkable from the BW, the food looked good, and it was still open at 8pm. The only drawback was the chips tasting a bit dry/stale. Salsa was good, and the carne adovada was amazing. Red sauce so good and...More

Usually can rely on Panz for decent food and good service, but today turned that all around 1. No silverware on table had to ask repeatedly and finally got my own from another table. Never brought water glasses for the water pitcher on table 2....More
