This place was recommended by the desk clerk at the Best Western. Must of had a friend working here, because it was not that good. Serice was OK, but the food was lacking. The hamburger, the specialty, was just ok and the french fries were...More

Stopped in for dinner, great burgers and fries. The place is very loud and you can’t hear each other talking. They were very busy when we stopped in. It’s a good place for cheap eats

Wonderfully tasty and large burger. Didn't even need a side. Waiter very helpful with beer selections and was completely honest about not needing more than just the burger. A great place for a meal in ABQ!

I visited this bar/restaurant late one evening with a friend. We called for a beer. We were met with such a great welcome - two Brits travelling Route 66. The staff here are great - friendly, funny and informative. We must have made an impression...More

Holy Cow is absolutely nothing to look at from the outside -- bland, gray and uninviting. We've driven by it countless times and not given the place a second thought. But in search of a green chile cheeseburger one day we decided to give it...More

Great burger and fries. Fast service. Our server Dominic was great and gave us some good advice on other places in the area. Don't miss this place if you are in Albuquerque.
