Albuquerque Airport Area Request New Mex Mex

We've got a three hour layover in Albuquerque tomorrow evening and are wondering if there are any decent New Mex Mex restaurants either in the airport or nearby?

    1. There's a Garduno's in the airport that might be ok. I'm not sure if 3 hours is enough time to leave the airport and come back, but Perea's on Central might be the best and closest. Keep in mind that ABQ is a very long airport and there is lots of walking to get in and out.

      1. I really like El Patio and it should be a 7-10 minute cab ride from the aiport. It's at 142 Harvard Dr. SE. I especially like their carne adovada and many of my friends like their green chile chicken enchiladas. It's not a very large restaurant and indoor seating might be limited this time of year since it's a bit too cold to enjoy dinner on their patio.
