Albuquerque--dining with kids

drcmk Jan 4, 2009 10:04 AM

I'm interested in restaurants that are unique, yummy and interesting but also welcoming to children. The restaurant must have some kind of kids menu so that chicken fingers and mac and cheese are available as a last resort, but also have interesting food for adults. Any recommendations?

    Monroe's is a family place especially favored by us locals. The name is deceptive. It's basically a New Mexican restaurant with locations on Lomas near Old Town and at 6051 Osuna NE. The food is good, fast, and they have a children's menu. Everyone has a favorite place for green chile cheeseburgers, but I'll put my money on Monroe's. My husband favors their seafood enchiadas.

      In the Nob Hill/UNM area:
      Flying Star
      BumbleBee Baja Grill

      Range Cafe
      Route 66 Diner
      Dion's [local, really good pizza and salads and subs]

      Here is a list of my favorites and almost every one of them will be okay with kids. They may not have chicken fingers or mac & cheese on the menu, but most kids would find something ok to eat.


      From the list; I would skip the following with kids:
      The Rancher Club
      Artichoke Cafe
      Jennifer James 101
