The Old Town Plaza is right across the street, and the skyline is filled with brightly colored condos and high rises. There are many things to see and do in Downtown Albuquerque, and it’s a beloved part of the city.

One of the best restaurants in Downtown, Albuquerque is Monroe’s Restaurant. This eatery has been around since 1962, and they serve up delicious New Mexican food with a wide variety to choose from like fish tacos or seafood enchiladas! Their house specialties include green chile sauce (which you can get on any dish), red/ Bleu cheese salad dressing recipe…

One Google reviewer, Shannon F. shared,

Our first stop on our first visit to New Mexico. Delicious. Fresh ingredients. Excellent knowledgeable friendly service. I liked the way the wait staff all worked together.  We had a ground beef chimichanga and the hand rolled tacos. Both were the best we’ve ever had. The pork marinated in red sauce is awesome too. We’re only in town for 5 days and are already planning to come back back for breakfast.”

Mary Fox Park

Mary Fox Park is a great place to have an outdoorsy adventure with friends. The play structure and pergolas provide plenty of shade, so you can enjoy your picnic without worrying about getting sunburned or overheated! reviewers on Google commented how this neighborhood park gets its fair share of beautification efforts; they also noted that neighbors care enough in keeping it clean and good in shape.

Albuquerque Pawn Shop

Pawnshops are more than just a great way to get some quick cash. You can find some pretty sweet deals too! Albuquerque Pawn Shop has been a favorite in the Downtown area, and they have lots of classic Alburquerque pieces that you love like plenty of turquoise jewelry- You can even shop on their website and browse by specific types or styles of jewelry.
