Sadie's Dining Room
This popular place in the North Valley once served their great food from a bowling alley location. A full service bar is available in this hacienda-style restaurant. The salsa is so good it is sold in restaurants around New Mexico and the margaritas are equally as superb. Salsa and chips are bottomless and served the minute you settle into your seat. The menu offers favorites like chile rellenos, enchiladas and stuffed sopapillas. American standards including steak and sandwiches are also available.
The time we ate here the papitas were ok and tha carne adovada was alright but not tha best and service is horid here!! The waiter brought out all tha wrong plates more than once and when we did get tha food it was cold, tha one thing i do love here is tha salsa. If it wernt for tha good salsa they would have only gotten one star. Sadies is plain awful with service n the food could be waaaay better. I don't reccomend it.
food was sloppy and the service was horrid! it was 103 degrees outside and my beverage never got refilled. i waited 20 minutes for my check after my server picked up my plate. i finally recieved my check by asking an other server, when it was given to me she said my server had taken a break. spend your money else where there are plenty of other resturants with authentic new mexican cuisine like Casa De Benevides just down the street . Sadie's better clean up thier act, they could easily end up like Gardunos.
the food is the best in ABQ but the people greeter/hostess always gives a dumb-founded look when we go in, it never fails, and its been like this over the past couple of years, even with different hostesess', I think they need to teach them some customer service.
GROSS! I had THEE worst experience there, no kidding! The Managers didn't help and it took them months to refund two of the credit cards we used. I went with over 12 people, and they agreed a refund was in order and they still have not refunded one of the credit cards. This was nearly a year ago!
I WILL NOT EVEN STATE WHAT HAPPENED TO US BECAUSE I GET TOO UPSET BUT BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!
I've gone to Sadie's a couple of times now since moving to NM. I flat out love the chips and salsa, and their ground beef, whether in a taco or a burrito, has an excellent texture and flavor. But, to me, those plusses are negated by the inattention to things as basic as making sure the taco shells are not soggy or torn. Or, making sure the beans aren't too greasy. Or, having a server come by your table maybe once between ordering and serving. That might be a good idea for a restaurant to do. It's almost like being ignored on purpose. It seems like one would have to go out of the way to NOT pass by a table in an assigned area. Maybe that's what they're going for: sort of a 'salsa-nazi-seinfeld' thing?
It really boggled my mind when I couldn't order rice. Have you ever heard of a mexican restaurant that will not serve rice? Instead, without warning, your meal comes with diced potatoes. You know, like Denny's breakfast potatoes. For dinner. Or lunch. Or whatever. It's a weird deal and I tried to like 'em, but can't. I want my freakin mexican rice at a mexican restaurant. Is that too much to ask for those prices? But, I digress.
I'll go back for the chips and salsa, but for actual mexi food I like Compadres and El Modelo way more.
Being from out of state (AZ) I was in the mood for some good New Mexico heat. We went with some friends who said the place came highly recommended. The food was inexpensive and very good. I ordered a la cart, and I'm still wondering what the full dinner included compared to the a la carte for about twice the price. We had plenty of food, so I'm glad I only ordered the a la carte. The salsa was excellent. A full notch hotter than any I've found in AZ and very flavorful. A bit salty, which was great for me, as I consider salt a food group unto itself. The atmosphere was a bit plain, but hadn't come for the atmosphere so I didn't mind. The atmosphere is the only reason I didn't give it five stars. If I had read the other reviews before coming, I might not have wanted to go, but I liked it enough make a point to write this review after the fact. Our service was excellent, no easy task keeping three adults and five very hungry kids happy.
I used to eat here all the time but after going there again it seems that the entire staff has changed, most of them are rude and rush to take your order so it doesnt come to your table properly. The atmosphere is not the same and seems dull. The food used to be awsome now however it is not anymore. Unless everything here changes I will not be returning
