Food & Drink

After the Ski Line: Local Favorites

County Line Bar-B-Q The views, atmosphere, and food are fantastic! The Summer Concert Series starts May 26, and runs every Thursday for 13 weeks. It's THE place to be!!!
SUBWAY I love the Black Forest ham sandwich with Salami
Dion's Pizza Green chile pizza is amazing
Il Vicino Wood Oven Pizza The root beer is delicious.
Flying Star Café Eat a Creme Brulee Beignet.
Great Harvest Bread They give samples of the breads of the day with butter and honey. Ask for it!
placitas cafe Great place to stop after a morning or afternoon hiking on Sandia mountain. Also before a grocery stop at the Mercantile right around the corner.
Chick-fil-A Consumer beware: Chick-Fil-A will spend a portion of profits from your visit to promote their anti-LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual) agenda!
Golden Pride BBQ, Chicken & Ribs it's impossible to go wrong with the #9.
Papa Nachos Best fish tacos...EVER! Great (& hard to find in Albq) machaca burrito, smothered red chile & cheese; shredded beef hard shell tacos (they fry their own shells!); love the fresh chips & salsa!!!
Dion's Pizza Take the kids. They will enjoy watching them make pizza at the viewing area.
Garcias Kitchen Everything is true! Great food, great service! 5 Stars!!
Firehouse Subs Meatball sandwich is awesome! And try the Gator Hammock hot sauce!
Dion's Pizza Best pizza ever! try sausage and green chile pizza... I wish there was dion's in dallas
Sushiya The flamingo roll is delicious! The only sushi place I go to in abq.
Jimmy John's Live true by their name subs so fast you'll freak... Great subs, great price, great service. The subs were on the table just as we sat down
Samurai Grill And Sushi Bar Sushi rolls were great. Kid's beef teriyaki dinner was almost as large as an adult teriyaki dinner, which had so many little extras like fried vegetables and 4 small sushi rolls. Best in town!
Fastinos Mmmm can't go wrong with a giant slice of cheese or pepperoni.
