Albuquerque, NM 505-247-8522
We go to the Church Street Cafe not so much for the Mexican food, which is OK, but because of the restaurant's location and building. Situated in the heart of Old Town, the restaurant is convenient. Ask to sit in the back room, some of whose adobe walls date to 1706. That makes the room, at least, one of the oldest structures in the city.

If your family likes BBQ then plan a meal here either before or after your ride on the Sandia Peak Tram, minutes from the County Line. Part of a chain of restaurants, this comfortable roadhouse cafe located at the foot of the Sandia Mountains serves beef, baby back ribs, chicken and sausage barbecue platters as well as burgers and grilled chicken. On Thursday nights, there's live music (check the schedule).
 
Albuquerque, NM 505-898-1771
Since 1962 this family-owned restaurant has been serving food based on the recipes of Connie Thomas' mother Josephina Chavez-Griggs. Jack and Connie's place began as a one-room cafe. Sons Jim and John Thomas now operate the 1,000-seat restaurant located in Albuquerque's north valley. The menu offers tacos, burritos, tamales, enchiladas and other traditional fare. The restaurant is known for its variety of chile sauces and salsa, which can be purchased at the restaurant or online.
 
Albuquerque, NM 505-262-2739
Restored to look something like the former Jones Motor Company showroom that it once was, Kelly's Brew Pub, attracts attention for its Route 66 streamline modern architecture and for the more than 20 in house brews. For kids, the restaurant brews its own root beer. This big, noisy restaurant also serves moderately priced wraps, sandwiches and other simple fare. We like their sweet potato fries.
 
Albuquerque, NM 505-255-5454
This popular, family-owned pizzeria in Albuquerque's University district can be loud, but that's because it's busy. While waiting for slices, kids (and adults) can admire the yellow Mercedes that serves as a bar and soda fountain, as well as the eclectic murals.
