I had a Spinach Enchilada that was very good. We all ordered the same thing and everyone agreed. Patio is dog friendly but no water was offered. Lighting makes it hard to read the menu. But would try again.

This is a very cozy restaurant with very friendly staff. I live in California but I am an Albuquerque native. Each time I visit Albuquerque, I seek out the best sopapillas because you can't get sopapillas in California. I was so excited to taste that New Mexico red chili sauce poured over the best sopapillas I've had in years. OM... More

Our dinner on the patio was accompanied by many chirping birds that we couldn't see in the trees above us. Our server was friendly and efficient, and quickly served up a margarita which was lovely after a hot afternoon sight-seeing. I had a chicken enchilada with green chili, pintos and potatoes. The green chili almost set this Virginia girl on... More

Great waitstaff, friendly and helpful. Patio had 2 trees and small tables with wall mural, and the acoustic guitar musician was talented, great and soothing after traveling. Got delicious Chile Rellenos with Sopapillas (sugarless but sweet) and they serve raw honey with them- yum. We also had crispy beef tacos that were seasoned well and their salsa is SPICY and...

This was our first stop on a recent trip to New Mexico and it was one of the best places we ate at! Right in down town Albuquerque, near the campus, it has nice outdoor seating. The service was a little slow but the food was really good and made up for it. You can't go wrong with any of... More

I'm not sure I am well-schooled enough to distinguish between New Mexican cuisine and Mexican cuisine, but this was delicious food with a southwest influence served on a shaded patio with courtesy and efficiency.

Wonderful flavor and spice in the adovado pork burrito. Good tap beer selection. The service is prompt and friendly. Just a terrific experience here in Albuquerque.

We had lunch at El Patio on a recent trip to Albuquerque based on Trip Advisor reviews. the food was good, not outstanding but the prices were high. Lunch for the two of us with tip was $35, way more than we spent for a better dinner at Padilla's Mexican Kitchen. El Patio does have a very nice outside patio... More
