Richard's is a favorite lunch and breakfast spot. They always have fresh and healthy Mexican food. I had the huevos rancheros with red chili. Very tasty. All the food is prepared fresh. They have the option for a whole wheat tortilla on the side instead of the regular tortilla or sopapilla. They are only open for breakfast and lunch. Highly... More

From the chips and salsa to the sopapilla, everything was delicious and fresh. Well worth going there. Inexpensive, local place off the beaten tourist map.

We visited Albuquerque for the Balloon Fiesta and hotel staff suggested this location. First disappointment were the tortilla chips, seemed to be bought at GFS and not in made in house. Second disappointment was cleanliness of the restaurant. Food was 3 stars at best and didn't have great flavor. Sad this was our first food in New Mexico.

Food is consistently yummy! Everything is freshly prepared. I order the combination plate & have the soft shelled shredded beef taco, cheese enchilada, & tamale with 2 servings of whole beans. The shredded beef is always very lean & tender. The whole beans are very tasty & much healthier than refried beans! Chips & salsa come with the meal. The... More

We were passing through Albquerque at lunch time, chose an exit and hoped to find a restaurant. We ended up at Richard's, which was intriguing to us since it was advertised as a healthy Mexican restaurant. The food was okay but nothing to write home about. I'm not sure what was healthy about it. The portions were huge, the atmosphere... More

This is a small, local restaurant that is run and staffed by people who want you to enjoy your dining experience with them. Nothing fake here, especially the attitude of the staff!

I felt like eating Mexican today and searched for Vegetarian Mexican restaurants and Richards came up in the search. It is SO hard to find good Mexican restaurants in New Mexico that don't use lard and are able offer healthy vegetarian ingredients. Richards vegetarian plate was so awesome with so many options to choose from. The vegetarian selections are clearly... More
