Spicy, authentic, cheap SW cuisine in Old Town, ABQ

I don't have much time in ABQ. It's a conference and the hotel is in Old Town. I also don't know much about ABQ, but I know I love southwestern food, like green chile. i'm looking for something inexpensive and fun, homemade and delicious. help!

    Absolutely the best website for where to eat in Albuquerque (look under Duke City). Now is a good time to find the best green chile as the harvest is just ending. Good eating.

      Monica's El Portal (321 Rio Grande NW, 505-247-9625) and Duran's Pharmacy (1815 Central NW, 505-247-4141; yes, they serve food in there) are both decent NM restaurants in Old Town that should meet your quals.
