Here is an updated list of my pics in Albuquerque.

These are all places I have eaten at and consider my favorites. I have tried not to include any chains, but a couple of better ones are listed. I hope you can use this info. I probably missed some; I'll come back and add more if I think of them.
$$ means expensive; type of food is indicated if title of restaurant isn't clear; general location given. All are in ABQ proper unless otherwise noted.

Please feel free to add on your favorites!
