Anyone been to Juanita's Comida Mexicana (Albuquerque, 4th St SW)?

I walk past Juanita's Comida Mexicana (910 4th St SW in ABQ - between Santa Fe and Atlantic in Barelas - (505) 843-9669) all the time on my lunchtime hikes (returning to my downtown office from a trek through the bosque), and it looks like the type of hole in the wall that should be good. Has the right kind of traffic in and out, etc. I've wondered and wondered, but I'm always exercising when I go past it - and I never think to head down to actually EAT there when I'm interested in having lunch.

Anyone been? Any reviews?

Or am I going to have to find out for myself? ;-)

  1. Don't know it, I'll go with you :o)

    Have you eaten at Pro Ranch? I love their ready to eat meals and the atmosphere is like being in Mexico.

      I have not - oh, but you and I should go to El Alex on 4th NW! I'm craving their birria.

      What's your schedule look like?

    2. I've been there a half-dozen times at least. Good (hot) fresh chile verde salsa. Try her gorditas!

      PS: I'll second El Alex -- tasty and reasonably priced.

      1. Sorry, chiming in late. Juanita's is the real freakin' deal. Lard in the refried beans, fresh corn tortillas, Mexican game shows on the TV. Loads of fun and cheap!
