50s Diner. Green Chile cheeseburger is worth trying as is the red Chile and chocolate shake. Worth trying very reasonably priced.

Back in 1992 my new husband and I moved from LA to KY with four dogs and four cats in a U-Haul. Our first night stop was here in Albuquerque at the days inn across the street. Exhausted we settled the pets and walked across the street to this wonderful welcoming restaurant. The people were friendly and kind. They made... More

Service was very good. However the food was terrible. I had a "Cuban" sandwich. The pork and ham were so overcooked and dry I couldn't eat them. The pickles were the best part of the lunch. My husband ordered a cheeseburger. The beef patty was very overcooked and dry but the slice of cheese was thrown on last minute and... More

A friend of mine that lives outside Albuquerque suggested this place... we ended up going here once a day the entire time we were in town, whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

You can get the breakfast classics anywhere, your in mexico at the owl cafe get something with the homemade tortillas, exceptional refried beans and the chilies and peppers. That is the most generous quesadilla I have had yet. Great job and killer atmosphere.

Very friendly staff. Popular restaurant. Can buy t-shirts, hats, mugs, coffee, post cards all with the Owl Cafe logo. Burgers are huge, fries are tasty. Most all served with a southwest flavor. We especially liked the real milk shakes.

Cheap and good burgers. Cool atmosphere but not as good as the previous reviews stated. Still I would go if you get a chance!

On the way to and from Phoenix we stopped for lunch. Both times we were impressed with the quality of the food and service. You get a bit of SW flavor in many of their dishes, and good malts too. They can juice up a plain burger with just the right spice as to not overpower a mid-western boy.

Thank W J
