Western View Diner Huevos Rancheros

Western View Diner & Steakhouse

On the West side of town, off of Route 66, just East of Coors Blvd, you’ll see a sign with an arrow for “Western View, Steak House, Coffee Shop”. If you’re hungry, go in! Here you will find great diner fare, including my beloved huevos rancheros- and therefore diner fare with chile. What’s not to … Continue reading

Chile Bowl

Chile Bowl

On a chilly winter Sunday I find myself wandering towards the Chile Bowl, a Taste of New Mexico, just North of Downtown Albuquerque on 4th Street. Score! This is the right place for today’s huevos rancheros outing, as the location is in-city, yet it feels like I made my way to the ranch… Looks delicious, … Continue reading

El Charritos

El Charritos

At El Charritos, on Central Avenue on the west side, there is a difference between breakfast and lunch huevos rancheros. However, I don’t think there is much difference having to do with the amount of food one can fit on a plate! This place comes recommended, and it does appear to be a local favorite, … Continue reading

Placitas Cafe

Placitas Cafe

A dusty road on a gorgeous fall day wound around and up the hill to The Placitas Cafe. I am so thankful for the ‘huevos problem’ the folks there claimed they could fix. They fixed it good! Sitting at an artsy rustic cowgirl table with chairs to match (for sale), I don’t think twice about … Continue reading

Papa Nacho

Papa Nachos

On a cute little patio off the beaten path in an unexpected part of town is a neat family owned Mexican restaurant called Papa Nachos. Papa comes in at 3:00 AM every morning to start the meats and chiles, and one can taste the proof. The recipes and tastes seem a bit milder than some … Continue reading

Nob Hill Bar and Grill huevos rancheros

Nob Hill Bar & Grill

Celebrating a friend’s birthday on a gorgeous spring day is a great way to happen upon another subtly unique version of huevos rancheros. Nob Hill Bar & Grill does it deliciously in their local “upscale joint” way. We may be the celebrity sightings of the day, enjoying our brunch on the covered patio. A colorful … Continue reading

El Norteno huevos rancheros

El Norteno

I knew I was going to stop by El Norteno for my next Albuquerque huevos rancheros visit… last week! I just happened upon it while running errands in the northeast heights. I’m so glad it stuck. El Norteno claims “Authentic Mexican”, and I am happy to agree with whatever they say because the huevos are … Continue reading



I’ve been meaning to try Caliente’s New Mexican Restaurant for a while, and today is finally the day. For great food, not to mention a Sunday Brunch Buffet, I’m surprised more locals aren’t packing the place. I’m here specifically to try the huevos rancheros, mentioned in Andrea Feucht’s Food Lovers Guide to Santa Fe, Albuquerque, … Continue reading

Mannies huevos rancheros


At Mannies Restaurant, they say “Its not your momma’s cooking, but it’s the next best thing!” Somewhere between diner fare and home cookin’, just like its situation at the corner between UNM and Nob Hill, it’s very easy to feel like I’m welcomed as part of the Mannies Family any time I walk into the … Continue reading
