Stopped in for breakfast with my kids. We arrived towards the end of the Sunday morning rush. A server seated us right away. Which seemed to cause some confusion with the hostess. The service was quick and friendly. I ordered the breakfast burrito with carne adobada,egg, potato and red chile. The portion size was generous and loaded with carne.The red... More

The staples were solid (chips, salsa, sopaipillas, green chile, beans, rice). Totally hit the spot, will be getting a relleno again soon. Yum.

We have gone here for years. I always get the huevos rancheros with green chili on a flour tortilla and my husband orders the carne adovada and eggs. The food is great and it's a local family business. The staff has always been so nice to us over the years. They have limited seating, but worth the wait. Our families... More

This is cozy little local place, they are not open for dinner, they don't have a bar and they don't have a liquor license, but what they do have is amazing beef, amazing chili and fast service.

When I have an early flight in to visit my daughter eating brunch at Pereas appears to becoming a tradition. Huevas Rancheros is our meal of choice. It is always tasty and filling. Love the smoky refried beans and crispy hash browns. Although the carne adovada is one of the best I just couldn't eat that much food. I do... More

My husband is from Albequerque and we go to Pereas for huevos rancheros when in town. It's the best. Eggs any way you like. Choice of red or green chili and both are great and not too hot. Get hash brown and or beans and corn or flour tortillas. Any way you like it. Won't disappoint you. Great service too... More

We ordered carry out. We had the red chile enchiladas. It didn't even tasty like red chile. Food taste like something from a fast food drive thru. On top of that didn't even get honey for the sopapillas. $40 down the drain.

Things are not overspiced, portions in proportion to what you pay for. I saw other reviews that talked about the bland beans. Obviously out of towners--this is how we do things here. If you can't taste food for what it is, you're doing it wrong. Not everything needs garlic and onion. Chile has its own taste, as do beans. We... More

Perea ' s is a treasure, if you're like me and value home-made green chile, superb refried beans and about the nicest staff you can imagine. Breakfast huevos Ranchero will keep you going for hours.
