Went at a great time of day, decorations and ambience is good. Our waitress Dana was great, and hustled to take care of her customers. Food was brought to us fast, hot and very tasty. Prices were good. Will definitely go again.

Not on my usual list of Mexican restaurants in ABQ, but really enjoyed it! Had steak and enchiladas. Steak was cooked perfect! Ordered both red and green chili. Both good but nothing special. Tasty rice was served with it. Bartender was friendly and attentive to everyone!

The shrimp fajita is great. It is one of our favorites. They have a generous reward program too. The atmosphere is New Mexican and rustic looking. Service has always been quite good.

We went a week or so after that cooking channel guy had a segment when he extolled the virtues of the Carne Adovada...he did NOT... More

Instantly greeted by very nice hostess, sat down promptly, beautiful environment and surroundings with a little Mexican Holiday vibe going on. The waitress Dana made us feel like part of the family and provided... More

We regularly travel in and out of Albuquerque and we always look forward to eating at Papa Felipe's as soon as we arrive. We especially love Chilaquile Casserole and the Chile Rellano, as well as the margaritas. Dana is our favorite waitress.
