Stopped in Albuquerque on our xmas trip going east. Every time I go through Albuquerque, I try to stop at Loyola's. Great atmosphere and amazing food. I had the huevos for breakfast with green chile. Great flavors and amazing attitude.

We have been here numerous times in the past, but finally returned today and was not disappointed. It looks like they have new booths and carpet! The green chile was hot (we were warned) yet quite tasty! The coffee cup was never empty! Thank you for a pleasant experience.

The feel of this place is friendly, retro, classic diner. Our waitress was super and our food was brought to the table quickly. Lots of choices on the menu - standard American Diner stuff and New Mexican favorites. Food was good, but not outstanding... just basic preparation and presentation.

This place is a real, legit diner. Food is fast and fresh with friendly wait staff. There are pies and cakes fresh baked inside of glass dishes on the counter. The huevos rancheros is good along with sopapillas. Plenty of parking in the back and clean restrooms.

Very nice, friendly and clean family owned 'diner'. We were visiting friends and went for breakfast. This is their regular place and if I lived in the area, it would be mine too!!!

Sampling local diners and restaurants is very much a part of the traveling experience for my husband and me and I usually spend a good deal of time researching dining options prior to any trip. That said, Loyola's Family Restaurant held appeal for many reasons. Our attention was first drawn to Loyola's as it is a frequent setting for Breaking... More

We went because of the Better Call Saul tie in and were so happy that we did. The service was the best ever. The food was excellent diner type food.

This is a good little place that is really "out of the 50's in the look and feel. The food is good--very Mexican. The service is also good. Decorations are appropriate for the old style fell so the place.

Loyola's drew the attention of my wife and me sometime ago when Better Call Saul premiered. My wife had been there with a friend and said the food was good, but we had plenty of cause to visit afterward. As with most filming locations, the novelty has worn off. It is nice to see Loyola's as the setting on the... More

My wife and I went there for breakfast today, partly because of my obsession with Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. We were treated to some real good food and great service. This is the kind of place you look for. One waitress carried an elderly man's coffee out to his car for him, and the staff was just as... More
