Mad Max's BBQ Albuquerque (Rio Rancho)

Lar | Jan 6, 2009 07:18 PM

After several borderline or unpleasant experiences with local BBQ joints (I won't name them by name) we literally stumbled into Mad Max's in Rio Rancho. It's right next door to Intel and is indeed a true delight. The building is small and the people friendly. On our initial visit we had simple pulled pork sandwiches with cole slaw and baked beans. The pork had just the right amount of smoke and was served on a really tasty french roll. To our surprise, it was not slathered in sauce, rather we were provided three bottles of sauce...regular (a very good tomato base), extra hot and a mustard sauce sauce in squeeze containers.. All were plenty tasty. The coleslaw and beans also were pleasers. All sweet but not too much so. It's rare to find a place that seems to do everything right but this appears to be one. Our only regret was not trying a combo plate and taking leftovers back to the hotel. Well... in Cincinnati at least we have the Montgomery Inn to fall back on... ha! Little ol' ABQ is becoming a big city food town rather quickly.
