This is a completely unpretentious and nondescript place only serving beer and wine, but the food is simply amazing - authentic and cheap. Yeah, I rather missed my margarita, but the food more than made up for the lack of buzz. This is a family-run...More

I read reviews and found this place in Albuquerque. We came around 8 o'clock at night and it closes at 9. The food came out really fast and the waiter was nice and it was pretty good. It is really affordable.
