No me gusta. I dont like new mexican food its all mushy and gross. All the textures are the same. They alwyas get los cuates catering for my old job bc the office staff likes it. Maybe you have to grow up with it i dont know. They alwyas get rice beans enchilada i think green chile chicken and something w red chile. Always makes my stomach hurt and gives me diarrhea. There are no healthy options.

A local recommended this restaurant and it didn’t disappoint. The salsa was delicious and not too spicy. I ordered the red and green enchiladas and it was the prefect way to try both red and green sauces. My favorite part was the massive sopapilla served at the end of the meal. It was served soft and warm and with an endless supply of honey. The staff were friendly and the service was great.

The cantina is my place to go enjoy lunch on my days off. I get my food quickly and hot! They remember what you eat if you order the same thing more than once. I highly recommend this restaurant!

As prices rise everywhere, Los Cuates (The Twins) is still a great place when you have to feed a whole family! Or even if you go by yourself, you can eat like a whole family.... either way, a very good value. As for the setting, service, and food Los Cuates is a down-home restaurant, in a working-class neighborhood, that serves up good portions of delicious NEW Mexican food. I asked the desk-staff at our hotel (Homewood Sunport) where they like to go with their families for authentic New Mexican food and they all agreed on Los Cuates. The flavors here are what locals are looking for, and what Albuquerque visitors are looking to discover. I lived, long ago, in ABQ so I wanted the true taste of New Mexico. You'll get that here, at Los Cuates. The service is friendly, even at this time when they, like many places, are short-handed. The staff was energetic enough to keep the food flowing. We asked our waitress for a little bit of the history of Los Cuates, and I recommend you do the same... it's a fascinating multi-generational story. As for the food.... we enjoyed the Tacos, typically New Mexico. But our favorite was the Carne Adovada. The flavors of New Mexico Red Chile, and the tenderness of the pork was sumptuous (a fancy word meaning juicy... for a not-so-fancy restaurant). The Carne comes with wonderfully light Sopapillas, but order some dessert Sopapillas, and drizzle them with honey... like ya' do! We even ordered a couple for a flight-home snack, and they stayed soft and yummy. So, if you want a truly authentic taste of New Mexican daily food-life, come to Los Cuates.

We were passing through on our way home to Phoenix. Found Los Cuates on Google. The food and service were both great. Barbara was our server. She was happy and friendly and very helpful. Thank you Barbara!

Desert flower !

A couple weeks back a friend of mine wanted us to meet him at this location for dinner and drinks. I was really skeptical because of my past experiences with Los Cuates especially my most recent one at the Coors location that was terrible. I decided that I didn't want to be rude and not come hang out because I'd had a bad experience before. I'm so glad I did. My margarita was so good I had 2 more! The enchiladas were full of delicious chicken and the chile was delightful ? the service was so great, friendly and attentive my margarita was full again in seconds! I had a wonderful experience here. I highly recommend coming to this location. They won back my business!

Only have gotten take out, haven't eaten inside yet, but take out has been good. Had an issue once awhile back, but they took care of it for the next time I went in. Definitely will continue giving them my business! Love the rice as well!
