Best Restaurants in Southwest Albuquerque

Wendy’s and Sonic are available in Alamosa, but if you want some amazing tacos al pastor or menudo, you’ll have to visit El Bronco. It may appear to be a hole-in-the-wall, yet the feedback is all good, and it is a well-liked local attraction. One Google reviewer, Kevin O., shared,

“A friend of ours told us to give it a try, he said they had some of the best street tacos. My wife said they were yum yum delicious, my shredded beef burrito was definitely a great-tasting work of art. It could have been just a bit bigger, but when you taste that good you can get away with it!”
