Sadie’s of New Mexico
6230 4th St NW, Los Ranchos De Albuquerque, NM
15 Hotel Cir NE, Albuquerque, NM
5400 Academy Road Northeast, Albuquerque, NM

Remembered by old-timers for the days when the restaurant resided in the Lucky 66 bowling alley next door, Sadie’s is still a lively scene with consistently great food. Service is prompt but expect a wait for a table during busy hours. Sadie’s hand crafted margaritas come in a wide variety of 14 options with fun flavors like prickly pear and blood orange alongside the classics.


El Bruno’s Restaurante Y Cantina
8806 Fourth Street NW, Albuquerque, NM

Considered by many to be one of the top purveyors of New Mexican food in the Land of Enchantment, El Brunos captures what folks expect of an inviting New Mexican cantina. Along with an extensive menu featuring New Mexican classics, the restaurant also pays homage to Old Mexico with many dishes you don’t often see in New Mexican restaurants like shrimp ceviche. El Bruno’s margaritas were voted best in the city by ABQ The Magazine in 2019.
