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. You get lots of the other fixings, but precious little "pollo". The price was a... More

Nice wait staff, but food expensive and marginal. Remodeling so we were served in a conference room of the hotel. They expect to have new restaurant done in a couple of weeks.

Servers Christine L and Jeff were super friendly, considerate and were very knowledgeable regarding the menu offerings. Hubby raved about the House Made pies but the Flan is a bit different with a touch of cocoa making it my favorite... More

This was by far the worst restaurant I have ever visited, I went because I had a coupon from restaurant.com. The food was terrible, rice like two days old, you can tell for the old hard grains, and a dessert very little and expensive. I did not even tip since they made us pay for the coupon They should improve... More

I ate there for dinner and breakfast both. Even though its inside a hotel, the prices were reasonable, and foods were decent. New Mexico has many craft beers, so I looked forward to that. But unfortunately they don't have a variety of beer.

This is one of the nicest bar and grill venues in Albuquerque, but it comes at a high price. The drinks, food and service is always good, so be prepared to pay for it. It's usually comfortably busy during late afternoons, but things can get a bit hectic on the weekends, so plan you visit accordingly. Also, it's a good... More

We were pleased that the Best Western Hotel provided a voucher for a free breakfast. You could chose from a variety of items on the menu and the items that we ordered were tasty. It was nice to sit down & order instead of a buffet offered by most other hotels.

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.
