When I came in, I thought, "Oh, one of these places..." Fortunately, Kym does a great job of making people feel at home. Though not the most exciting, fabulous, historic, and hip bar I've ever been to, it's very comfortable. I chatted with a number...More

I grew up near Buffalo, NY, and I am picky about my chicken wings! I ordered the wings which were NOT breaded and were seasoned with a delicious, spicy sauce. The wine selections were not great, but I did manage a glass of rose. This...More

I phoned up yesterday, Sunday, at 4 to make an inquiry. The phone rang and rang and no one ever picked up. I called the front desk and they said the restaurant didn't open until 5. Not what the website says. Very disappointing

Had dinner here. Chose the trout followed by the Apple Pie. Both dishes were well cooked and tasted fine. Fairly standard restaurant which ticks your boxes if you are looking for good quality basic food. Worth the visit.

Loacated at Best Western Rio Grande Inn hotel. We went just for breakfast, which was ok, burrito was ok, but beans straight from tin. Friendly service, clean restaurant.

Located in the hotel, this place serves what appears to be mainly southwestern/mexican type food. The cuisine is most decidedly aztec. The food was good tasting though we were a bit surprised at the sparse serving of chicken you get with a chicken fajita order....More

Favored by locals for its traditional savories and admired by our hotel guests for its trans-ethnic cuisine, the Albuquerque Bar & Grill is sure to satisfy any palate or diet. Open from 6am to 10pm. Our bar is a relaxing end to a stimulating day of shopping in Old Town. Unobtrusive service, original wall murals by local artist David Schuman, and an intricately-carved bar compliment the Zia's festive cantina atmosphere. Savor the food and traditional music; enjoy the authentic hand-crafted furnishings, and have the time of your life.
