We stopped in for a late lunch and shared a juicy burger topped with onion rings and Swiss cheese. We were happy to share the extraordinary burger. The fries were perfectly seasoned. It was a little difficult parking on a mid-day Saturday but the food and atmosphere are with it. Out other favorite stops in this little mall are Bookworks... More

Never been to any of these cafes - I was amazed at the selection they had. Breakfast all day or choose a burger...it's all your choice!

The salads at Flying Star are good, but expensive. The portions for the other items are quite small, especially at $11.00 and higher. The food is quite good, the locations are nice, clean, and modern. The staff is friendly, but although the tables are bussed frequently, they definitely aren't wiped down routinely. All in all, just fair...

Never disappointed each and every time. Beautiful location and outdoor patio with fireplace. Extensive menu with a large variety of good, healthy and tasty selections. Bakery items are to die for!

Had a decent lunch on a Saturday. it was not to crowded. There was a family group in the middle of the outdoor space that were enjoying each other's company, so it was a rowdier environment athan usual. Falafel salad was delicious but very large. Had to take some home, which is sometimes hard if you are not headed right... More

Good food, fresh and tasty. Menu is limited. Maybe the specials could rotate more often. More meat and potatoes, my husband requests. Service is generally good, though, meal delivery can be rushed. By the time you can answer the question, "do you need anything else", the server's back is to you and they're gone. We do enjoy FS and hope... More

We settled here after a day of sightseeing Albuquerque. They have a great menu for desserts. Our group had pie, milkshakes, tea, and coffee. Pastries are second-to-none. The staff was friendly. This could be a morning ritual.

We ordered take out from here during our visit to Albuquerque. It came highly recommended & we were not sorry for taking a chance. The food was delicious & the pie was wonderful. We highly recommend this restaurant & will be eating there again on our next visit!

This is a chain of restaurants in Albuquerque. Oddly, it seems to matter which location one goes to as to the quality that is served. We have found Rio Grande and Almeda are the best. Corrales is consistently underwhelming and extremely slow.

We were 9 again, and Sunday breakfast after church services. We were all seated together, and there was something for everyone, even those who needed gluten free, and vegetarian. We were crowded but able to converse along the table.
