Delicious Dining

Authentic Mexican Dishes at Our On-Site Restaurant

Where Home Town Meets Old Town
Just a few minutes stroll from the heart of Old Town , Albuquerque Bar and Grill is more than just a reasonably priced and convenient dining spot for guests of the BEST WESTERN PLUS Rio Grande Inn; it is rapidly being discovered by locals as a great change of pace from traditional New Mexican cuisine.

Now don’t worry, we still ask “Red or Green?” hundreds of times a day, but you owe it to yourself to sample the creations of Chef Scott Mitchell, who has fused his 30 years of national restaurant experience with ten years of exceeding the expectations of ‘natives’ to develop an incredible array of new entrees, salads, specialty sandwiches, and more. Browse our new menu… and we’ll see you very soon!
