We're heading to Albuquerque NM for a couple weeks for work. Due to family obligations, we're doing the drive down in one shot, and back will probably be a long weekend of driving, so I'll probably only be able to work in 1 or 2 stops for bbq on the way. We'll be heading to the Grand Canyon one weekend and exploring New Mexico another.

Anyone have a recommendation for good bbq either in the Albuquerque area or along the way?

We'll be coming down from Wisconsin. I'm willing to go out of my way for good bbq.

Thanks

Ernie AKA Erniesshop was doing weekend vending, just a bit west of Albuquerque as of last fall - maybe PM him, see if he still is ??!! I know he hasnt been here much lately, but we have talked on the phone and via email, and assume his email is still up and running! Gotta give some love [ and cash ] to ringer when we can!!

I'll definitely check and see if he's vending. I always like to meet up with other ringers.

We stopped in Altoona Iowa at Jethro s BBQ. Apparently it's a local chain and very much a sports bar. I Got ribs, pulled pork and brisket. the ribs were good, the pulled pork was dry and the brisket was OK. Overall not bad but I probably wouldn't go to my way for it. Baked beans were pretty good.

Well, you are going through KC and I've heard they have good que there! LOL, I'm sure you can find a place to go.

I've spent a ton of time in ABQ but I was there for the New Mexican food, so that's the direction I can point you.

That being said, I've had good luck at Rudy's in ABQ.

On to the New Mexican food...

When you go through Santa Rosa you should stop at Joseph's. They have awesome food and their sopapilla's are some of the best!

The Comet II is also in Santa Rosa and has great food.

Santa Rosa is also the scuba diving capital of the SW - look it up!



This is a little local bar/restaurant in ABQ. Good atmosphere and good food.

Cervantes Restaurant & Loungemore info‎
5801 Gibson Boulevard Southeast
Albuquerque, NM 87108
(505) 262-2253


Don't forget to check out Old Town Albuquerque, it's a couple of miles West of I-25, just south of I-40. I haven't eaten at any of the restaurants in Old Town but Little Anita's is not too far north from there and is a neat little restaurant.

Sorry I can't help with BBQ restaurants, it's not what I was looking for when I went there. Here's a quick search on Urbanspoon though:

You got a couple of way to get there.
Most routes will take you through KC.
If you spend the night the KC you got a lot of good BBQ & blues within your reach.
If you just drive through you may want to check out Oklahoma Joe's.
There just off the freeway, in a gas station. You can google 'em.

Now if ya want an adventure google Lonnie Ray's Cafe. Best BBQ I've had. It ain't on the main road but Lonnie's a great dude, from Texas. Check out his brisket.

If you are heading down I-40 heading through Amarillo, get off on Paramount and head south to Tyler's BBQ, excellent brisket. Made Texas Monthly top 50. Definitely worth the stop, get there early, they only cook enough for the day and can sell out (sign of a good Texas BBQ joint).

In ABQ, I like Powdrell's on Central.

For New Mexican food, try the green chile cheeseburger at Owl Cafe on Eubank just north of I-40. Little further up on Eubank, try La Salita. On Wednesday and Saturday, they have the best shredded beef burrito. Their chile rellenos and tamales are also top notch.

If you are down by Old Town, try the little diner inside Duran's Pharmacy, it's on Central just east of Rio Grande Blvd. Excellent huevos rancheros, chicken enchiladas and carne adovado. Their homemade tortillas slathered in butter should not be missed.

Enjoy!
