The Tradition Lives At El Pinto Restaurant

El Pinto Restaurant was voted Best New Mexican Restaurant in Albuquerque New Mexico according to the "Best of City" annual survey conducted by Albuquerque the Magazine.  Come see why we're the local favorite for authentic New Mexican Cuisine!

The people of Albuquerque have spoken! El Pinto Restaurant offers the best New Mexican food in Albuquerque. El Pinto uses the recipes of the owners' grandmother Josephina Chavez-Griggs. Their family was the first to differentiate their cuisine as "New Mexican". We feature a wide selection of New Mexican food choices on our menus that include flavors that come from our beloved green chile sauces and salsas. Come taste our authentic New Mexican dishes, salsas and drinks.  If you are in the mood for a margarita, we feature the largest Tequila Bar in New Mexico, with over 160 different 100% Blue Agave tequilas and 35 different Mezcals, to make your perfect hand-made margarita to sip on the patio. We can't wait for you to join us!
