This was our first visit to this great place. Found out they have been in business 43 years with 30 at the current location. The service was pleasant from the start. Food was excellent and the prices were reasonable. Plan on visiting again soon.

This past Christmas was kind of a lost cause for us, not making any dinner plans so we headed out in the car and places we hoped were open were either packed with long waiting lines or closed. We passed a cute little building on Menaul Blvd, with a sign Ho-Lo-MA and it said OPEN TODAY. We thought, why not,... More

I love this place. It is never crowded and the food is hot well served. I recommend it for a quit business lunch and for families. Often go with the wife and kids. We order 2 entrees and share all leave happy. I really like the pork buns, hot and sour soup and the Kung pow chicken.

I am new to ABQ, and I'm accustomed to decent Chinese food delivery. No delivery in ABQ...so I tried to find something near-by. My expectations for Ho Lo Ma were low, looking at the exterior, but it's close enough that I can walk there from my home, so I thought I'd give it a try. How bad could it be,... More

The food is fairly good but the service is hit or miss. Most times I dine here the is usually not more than a couple of tables in use. There is plenty of food served and it is tasty. The kitchen probably seems noisier than most simply because the dining area is extremely quiet.

Had lunch at Ho Lo Ma several times recently and was pleased with the food and service each time. This place is rather typically decorated with Chinese origin hangings,bamboo screens and such. The overall effect is somewhat dowdy but the food is very good and the service was fast and attentive. Prices were on the low side and the portions... More

I lived by this place for years before I actually went to dinner here. It seemed like just another hole in the wall chinese place. It was and always is when we go, surprising freshly prepared. I always get the Birdsnest dish. Give it a try - I bet you like it!
