I am going to Albuquerque for the day on Saturday Oct 16. Are there any good restaurants that are moderately priced? WHat other activities are there to do in ABQ? Thanks!

My posts/replies are strictly my opinion and not that of any company, organization, or Southwest Airlines.

Can't help you on the restaurants, but if you're looking for something cool to do, take the Sandia Tramway up the side of the Sandia Mountains. It's on the northeast side of Albuquerque, and the view from the top is superb. There's also a decent restaurant at the top, and a ski resort down the back side.

If you like Mexican food, try Monroe's. It's in the Northeast Heights, so it will be in the vicinity of the balloon launching grounds and the Tram.

Yes, the Tram is quite an experience. And a footnote for aviations fiends: remnants of a TWA Martin 404 crash that occurred in the late forties is still visible from the Tram.

Also consider visiting the Nob Hill area of Central Avenue. Central Avenue was once part of Route 66. Part of Central is pretty trashy, but you will find the Nob Hill to be fun. It has a lot of old Art Deco architecture. Lots of funky shops and interesting restaraunts.

If you like to hike, there is a state petroglyph park on the west side of town.

I used to travel to Albuquerque on business a couple times per month. This was around 20 years ago..my favorite Mexican restaurant was Sadies, which last I heard was still there. Not sure if I can give directions, though.


What a long strange trip it's been

Wherever you go, there are no places to eat near the amtrak/greyhound station and those fast-eh.."food" joints inside the greyhound station are NOT an option!

I once ate a good meal at a Howard johnson's on Signal Ave in the North East section of town.

The Metro might be the Sub(optimal)way

Hi Quantas,

I will be in ABQ this weekend visiting family.

There is an American Indian festival this weekend and they
usually have it at the Pit at UNM. Or you can take the
short drive just north of downtown and go to Old Town.
There is a great restaurant there on the east side of the
square but I cannot remember the name of it off hand.

You just missed the balloon fest. Or if you feel like and
adventure, head to the Fair Grounds for the flea market
they have every weekend (except during state fair).
The horse track is also there but they are done racing so the
only thing besides events on the grounds is the casino.

There are numerous casinos close to ABQ. I always win at
the new RTE 66 on I-40 at the top of 9 mile hill.

Nob hill is an option if you are looking for the college, younger

Eclipse Aviation is based at the airport there. All the people I know are
in Vegas this week. If I would have had more notice I could have
maybe got you a tour of the facility and you could have seen the
new plane.

Make sure you take warm clothes, its forcasted for the lower 40's
this weekend.


I did not forget...I just misplaced the thought...

AAAAHHhhhhhhhhh.....green chili!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't understand everything I don't know about this.

As you head toward the Sandia Tram, stop for dinner at the County Line. Great barbeque. Then hit the Indian casinos.

If you go up Sandia, be sure and enjoy the 3" of snow they got today! Also, think about heading up to Santa Fe. Lots of history and GREAT restaurants. I'm more familiar with Santa Fe, anytime I've been in ABQ its for a concert, and usually after that, my memory is slightly fogged.

Good to know Sadies is still open! I first started going there when they were
located in a bowling alley..the enchiladas verde were to die for. I always
felt bad for the poor folks who sat next to me on the Frontier flights back
to DEN  Wink/being sarcastic

And their soppapillas (sp?)
