Wow! Can't decide what to order? Get the combination plate! It is a delicious spread with a taste of everything, including a taco, tamale, enchilada, and chili relleno. I got both sauces, green and red, the best of both worlds. You also get two sides, and I chose to the pozole and rice. The pozole is stewed to perfection and the chili is so rich. The rice has a nice flavor and accompanied the rest of the dishes so well. This plate truly does not disappoint!
You have to try these enchiladas! If not dont worry cause everything else is so good too! By far one of the best restaurants for New Mexican and Mexican food in Albuquerque.
Amazing presentation and so authentic and delicious!
very good, tasty, you wont be disappointed
Absolutly delicous and thr chili was profection so good !!!
I love this queso it is so good. I've had fajitas which are delicious.We go every fri
This is the best green chili stew I have had at a restaurant anywhere in ABQ! I love it and I have turned several others on to it. Definitely come try this!
The Chicken Relleno plate was tremendous beyond expectation! I was a little skeptical at first considering I had never tried a "Chicken Relleno". The flavors blend extremely well, and anyone should give it a try!
I'm super picky about my huevos rancheros and this is my favorite! Lots of fond memories of eating and talking and eating and talking at this fun little nook of a restaurant. I have a lot of favorites from their menu and have never had a meal I didn't love. Staff is super friendly and we always enjoy our selves.
Wow! I love this place! Food & service is amazing. Definitely a "must try". I've never Been disappointed by anything I've ordered there. ❤️ This place. #supportlocal.
Loved the steak ranchero with eggs. Good any time of day
This is my absolute favorite meal of all time, from any restaurant, ever!!! The chicken fried steak is battered to perfection and tender enough to cut with a fork. They have several sauce choices to pour on top of it, but I love the creamy green chile gravy the best. The hashbrowns are buttery & crispy and the eggs are always consistently perfect. The toast or tortilla on the side is an added bonus that completes the amazing meal. You can find many pictures of mine shared on social media of this delicious dish because I order it so often. 😉
One of the best Taco Burgers ive had, perfect with the queso and green chile!! Everything is always so fresh at this location ! 5stars!
This incredible burger satisfied my craving for Tex Mex and New Mexican simultaneously. Served with crispy, golden breaded fries. Ordered from Downtown/Old Town location.
I really enjoyed it . It was really good and very creamy. I would definitely recommend it to others
This was amazing it was like eating at my mothers home.
The food here is always amazing. We have never had a bad experience. In fact during COVID we have really been enjoying the Family pack for pickup.
Best creamy chicken enchiladas! I'm also addicted the their salsa. The fajita plate is definitely a must!
Awesome to see SPAM on the menu!! Loved it!
great place nice staff food is amazing
Amazing and tastes delicious. Eggs are cooked perfectly every time. Friendly staff and excellent service. Very clean establishment.
very tender steak, cooked to perfection, i will be back for more
Very good, tasty with a little heat. This has to be on the top 3 in town!
Everything that I have tried is Delicious! We eat regularly at both locations. 12th street and Montgomery location. My husband and I love eating here!
We ordered the family meal twice. One with red beef enchiladas, the other one with green chile chicken enchiladas. Rice, beans, chips and salsa were included. This is by far the best salsa in town. The enchiladas were amazing. We loved everything and will go back to order more dishes. I also like the fact that the family meal is a great deal. The staff is so nice and welcoming. We highly recommend this locations and awesome food.
I love eating here! The food is always fantastic. The service is great. :) I am in love with it all. Yum!!!
Awesome breakfast! The familiar flavors remind me of the homecooked meals that I grew up with, when my family would gather to share a meal for parties and special occasions. The eggs, chile, and beans are all classic New Mexican comfort foods. Cocina Azul has great recipes, generous portions, and reasonable prices. I will definitely be coming back to order this again! I also like their soups, salads, and burritos, but the huevos rancheros stand out as especially hearty!
Fancy New Mexican food that is more than a pretty plate! The combination plate was fantastic. Beautiful presentation that tasted absolutely delicious. Generous portions and excellent chips and salsa. The variety of sides is a bonus. We will definitely be back!
We work next door at the salon so we order food all the time, we are there just about every Tuesday for the $2 Taco Tuesday special. The tacos come packed with meat and flavor!
The best carne adovada in town!

You just can't beat the quality of food Cocina Azul serves! The Taco Burger plate reminds me of my childhood..mom would make the taco burgers with American cheese just like they do. For a real treat add Franks queso-the best in town!
Best queso in town! I've made it my mission to taste queso at every restaurant I can find in ABQ and this one wins first place. It's the perfect mixture of chile and cheese. 💯
This was a pickup order, which also included the green chicken enchiladas, the wife's enchiladas were good. My tortilla burger was dry and the girl upfront promised the bacon was in it this time. Got home and of course it wasn't. That is twice that happened. They always mess up my burger. But the other items are good.
I am native New Mexican and I KNOW good NM food. I have patronized Cocina Azul for many years because of the authenticity of their chile and great menu. I ordered GrubHub today and my boyfriend and I ordered the combo plate. It was ridiculously, amazing. The tamale was full of meat and the masa was flavorful and not overpowering. The relleno was cooked to perfection and not mushy, the chile pepper was firm and had a great flavor (must be from Hatch). The enchilada and taco were spot on. We had green and red chile sides and I ended up stealing both from my BF for my plate. Keep up the good work and we are proud to support local businesses like this. -Mil gracias! Marisa y Jeremiah
I stopped by to place an order to go for their wonderful huevos rancheros on Wednesday, May 27, but no one was wearing a mask - not the lady working the cash register and not the server who came out from the kitchen carrying a plate of food to a man seated at the bar (who may have been a worker on a lunch break eating lunch?). I left.
I have been desperate for some Baja Mexican food after moving to Albuquerque from Las Vegas, Nevada, and this dish would be the bestseller on any California beach. Best shrimp tacos I have ever had! Try adding some of the super spicy salsa into the sauce that comes with the tacos and you'll be in heaven. I am so glad to have found this restaurant! If you are a West Coast transplant looking for the type of Mexican food you grew up on, look no further!
Best Carne Adovada I have had in a long time! That's my test for a good restaurant, and Cocina Azul is the best!
I had this dish on Cinco de mayo and even though they were REALLY busy, the quality did not suffer. These tacos were delicious! I absolutely loved them! Chicken, cheese, lettuce and tomatoes on small corn tortillas. They hit the spot!
