Succulent meats also feature in some of their specialties, where the richness of steak is combined with tantalizing Latin flavors - expect Steak Taco Plate, the Rib-eye Steak Burrito and Beef Burrito Plate, among others. With warm service and authentic food, Cocina Azul hits the spot when it comes to a hankering for Mexican delights.

Los Cuates

To reason that this restaurant is only popular because of its budget-happy prices would be a slanderous insult to the kitchen. The menu specializes in authentic New Mexican fare featuring popular choices as chicken tacos, hefty enchiladas, and a Chile Relleno that comes so smothered in cheese that one wonders if perhaps the chef has direct ties with the Wisconsin cheese industry. If the tongue begs for something other than Mexican there is also a decent selection of burgers and sandwiches. Beer and wine is available.

Monroe's New Mexican Food

Monroe's New Mexican Food, which started out as a small drive-in restaurant a few blocks from Old Town, has developed a nationally-recognized line of New Mexican food products. The small location on Lomas does not accept reservations, and at lunch time it is not uncommon to find a line winding through the parking lot. Their Green Chile Cheeseburgers are world famous.

Mary & Tito's Cafe

Quite a bit of hype surrounds this this no-frills Mexican eatery, and regulars swear that the place is well worthy of it. Mary & Tito's have been around in the North Valley neighborhood since 1963, serving authentic New Mexican food to its residents. The food here is vibrant, varied and comes drizzled with a healthy dose of red or green chile, some of the most fabulous kind you will have this side of the world. The sopapillas, tamales, cheese tortillas and the carne adovada are inadvertent tongue-teasers and tummy-pleasers. To finish off, wolf down a slice of decadent Mexican Wedding Cake.

El Pinto Restaurant

Located along the Rio Grande Bosque, El Pinto's shaded patio draws diners from throughout New Mexico. Established in 1962, this dining gem has maintained its reputation for serving authentic New Mexican dishes. A number of tables are situated in private nooks for more private, romantic dining. Award-winning salsa precedes each meal. Generous portions of New Mexican dishes such as carne adovada, chile rellenos, enchiladas, and burritos are offered. As ultimate proof of its glowing reputation it has been visited by President Bush and Mick Jagger (separately, of course).
