Comment Archives: Locations: Restaurants: Mexican/Tex-Mex/Southwestern: 3 Stars

Re: “Crystal Park Cantina

Lived in the Springs for 30 years, but moved to Albuquerque about 10 years ago- was back to visit friends/family and started missing my chile fix, so thought I would visit what was one of my favorite 'mexican' restaurants. Kinda surprised at the change-over to this new place but 'what the heck, might as try it as long as i was there'. Loved the ambience and the wait staff was great. The food - not so much. Thought it was overpriced and so-so. Maybe I have gotten spoiled eating some really great southwestern/new mexican food in 'el Burque'.

Re: “José Muldoon's - Tejon St.

Moneymoo that's to bad. I've been a patron for 20+ also and I must say I've waited for the day for Jose to serve me a bad meal (but they've been consistent over those 20). Not sure why people are blasting the food, you know it's not authentic before you come (but it is consistently good). Good, not necessarily authentic, southwestern food (not that tex-mex garbage).

Re: “Poblano's Family Mexican Restaurant

I thought Poblano's was OK when it first opened in Falcon, nothing exceptional but not terrible either but at least we had a Mexican restaurant. Now that La Mission is open, I won't go to Poblano's again. La Mission blows it away.

Re: “Amanda's Fonda

Adequate good food, but not sure why they keep winning awards. Didn't seem all that special to me. I thought the food was better a block away at La Unica....

Re: “La'au's Taco Shop

Tasty and fresh. Good quality, eclectic choices. Price and attitude a little high for what you get.

Re: “Amanda's Fonda

This is my favorite sit-down Mexican restaurant in town. The patio option is GREAT when the weather agrees, the service is always on, the margaritas are strong, the salsa is fresh and spicy and the food is straight up good. The portions are big enough that you have built in lunch leftovers for the next day. Try the fish tacos... try their soups... try their "chile" sampler plate. Yummy.
