What th...mmmmmmmMMMMMM

A gringa friend took me to this hard-to-find place. Parking es very limited, no public restrooms, outdoor dining only, standing room only to order and very disorganized but, when I sunk my teeth into their Stuffed Sopapilla I realized that This is New Mexico's BEST KEPT SECRET and I hesitate to share it with others



Compared to nothing but its own style fresh cooking El Modelo will take the pepsi challenge with anyone here in Albuquerque...this food is one of a kind next to no one here in this city unique taste very good and original style other mexican restraunts just dream on keep following one anothers same style...Tamales the best, stuffed sopa the best, tacos the best, hand held burros the best ect, ect....



HANDS DOWN THE BEST NEW MEXICAN FOOD AROUND have had almost every thing they make LOVE IT ALL!!!!!!!!!


A New Mexican Tradition

Food is amazing. Great place to walk up and get a quick bite to eat. The prices are amazing for the amount of food that you get. It's no wonder they have been an Albuquerque favorite for so very long!
