I went with a friend during the Super Bowl, so it was not a busy time. We sat outside, which was nice, however several homeless people approached to tell us their sob story. I spend all day at work hearing sob stories. Not sure that was worth sitting out in the sunshine. The one drink I wanted on the menu,... More

Live music! It was really nice to sit and enjoy the guy playing while warming up with some the green chile chicken soup they have. The service was good and the beer was cold. They have many options for beer if you are picky, they have a decent wine selection and they have a full bar; which I guess is... More

Kelly's is an Albuquerque staple. Definitely the place to meet and greet. It has recently changed ownership, and it's all good! We used to meet friends for drinks only because the food was diner yucky. The beer list used to be overwhelming. Service was very inconsistent. The place felt grubby. Well, that's all changed. The place is so much cleaner.... More

Stopped in for lunch while in town. They have a large outdoor patio and the weather was beautiful. Enjoyed several local brews while people watching on the patio. The chicken green chile soup was excellent. I will definitely return on future trips to Albuquerque.

Went there the other day with a group of people. I was really impressed with how the waitress, Evita, took care of us and how attentive she was. We each had a beer and shared nachos. (Both were delicious.) Evita even split our check 7 ways without complaint, which I know is not an easy thing to do. We sat... More

It was a nice day in the Nob hill area, so someone from the area recommended for us to have a work lunch there. It was wonderful eating outside, since I can't where I live. Albuquerque came alive, with the people walking by and the sites and sounds of the area. The food was amazing different. e all had something... More

Used to be good but is not so much anymore. The food has gone way downhill since the new management took over.

On the way to the airport we drove through Nob Hill. We spotted people eating outside, at Kelly's, and since it was such a nice day figured why not. The food was average and nothing to rave about, pretty basic. We were there for lunch at 1230 but it looks like they do a better bar business later in the... More

The atmosphere was unique, it was a old service station converted to a restaurant. They have several interior dining areas and a patio area. The food was very good and plentiful. Great place for a good meal and fun time.

Had late lunch at Kelly's when it wasn't too busy. The chicken wings were plentiful and cooked the way ordered them, well done. Service was not attentive and the place needs a thorough deep clean. I believe that's why the patio is a favored seating.
