Albuquerque--ideas for Thanksgiving?

My family will be in Albuquerque over the Thanksgiving holiday and need recs for where to have a nice Thanksgiving dinner. Doesn't have to be super formal, but not a dive, either. Any suggestions? Thanks.

  1. The Rancher's Club is an excellent place for a holiday. We did Christmas there several years back and it was great. I have eaten there several times since and it is consistently excellent.

    Many of the casino's/hotels have terrific restaurants - Sandia, Santa Ana are 2 that I have eaten at and have enjoyed.

      Thanks for the info. I'll check them out.

    2. Definitely depends on what cuisine you'd like. That being said, several local rags will have pre-Thanksgiving guides to steer you towards themed meals on that day.

      If she's doing dinner that day, I'd recommend whatever Jennifer James 101 is having, but it won't be cheap. :-)
