Long recognized for serving some of the best barbecued brisket, ribs, chicken, and sausage in New Mexico, if not the entire southwest, this chain restaurant is the perfect stop for anyone in search of sloppy comfort food. Its heightened perch along the base of the Sandia Mountains further adds to its appeal by being one of the nation's only rib joints featuring panoramic views. The all-you-can-eat platter, for about USD15, is the hit of the menu. Kid's portions makes it family friendly.
This place has horrible service, and the management is included. They forgot our appetizer, charged us for a bottle of wine (that we DID NOT order) and the manager stated that "the machine sometimes mixes up tables." Beware you might be paying for someone elses meal!
We thought it would be the same great place as it's sister restaurant The State Line in El Paso, TX. Boy were we wrong!
The steaks are very very small, thin, cold and tough. I ordered mine medium and sent a bloody, cold piece of meat back and it wasn't much better the second time.
The salads are wilted, lettuce stuck to the plate upon arrival, the servings are very small and the prices are outrageous for the serving sizes and quality of food (nothing like the ad.) Nice views and nice staff. Please, don't bother going. There are other real Bar B Que and Steaks houses in ABQ worth trying out before you resort to this one.
There was a bit of a wait. When there is a wait people have a seat in the bar and can get some drinks. It is very loud and was pretty crowded but we got our drinks pretty quickly which was nice.
We went a bit later in the evening and they were unfortunately out of prime rib. We ended up getting steak, a sausage dish, mashed potatoes, baked potato BBQ beans, beer and salad.
The steak was wonderful as were potatoes. Nothing special about the salad (Texas Road House is better). We did not much care for the beans. They are in a watery type sauce and I prefer thick BBQ.
Overall it was fine, a bit pricy. I would probably prefer to go the the Texas Road House.
Great place to eat if you're hungry for something spicy. BBQ Ribs are fantastic. Finger licking good. Prices are very reasonable considering the portions you get. Everyone is friendly and it's a nice atmosphere to eat in. Views from the big windows are great too. In fact, since it's located where it is, on Tramway Blvd, the views are gorgeous, no matter where you look. It does attract alot of out of towners, due to it's proximity to the Tram, but for us locals who live close by, it's an at least 3 or 4 times a month place to go to.
Nothing special other that an out-of-the-way location near the Tram. The BBQ is on par with hotel fare and the tourists way outnumber the regulars. Nothing really distinctive for this Texas style bean barn.
This tramway lifts you from the Sandia foothills through five natural life zones to the top of the Sandia Mountains,
more than 10,000 feet above sea level. Time and terrain seem to move in harmony as passengers scout the ...
