On our way through Albuquerque, we exited the freeway to eat at a fast food restaurant and spotted the tiny Eat First (EF) restaurant in the adjoining strip mall--decided to stop. What a great surprise! Delicious, hot and plentiful, we enjoyed the leftovers just as much. Highly recommended!

When we have a craving for Chinese food, the first place we think of is East First Chinese Restaurant. Not only is the food good, but there is plenty of it. We usually take enough home for another meal. The establishment has recently been remodeled and now represents a first class Chinese restaurant.
