The Range Cafe in Albuquerque, NM
advertises that it serves “Ordinary Food Done Extraordinarily Well.” It does.
During the past two years, I’ve passed through Albuquerque, NM five times and stayed at the LaQuinta Inn Midtown where my daughter had once booked a room for me during her move to Las Vegas. On that first occasion, we arrived late and didn’t eat anywhere in Albuquerque. The second time I passed through Albuquerque, I stayed at the same place, and I was referred to the Range Café a half block up Menaul Street.
What a great place to dine! Tastefully funky, serves terrific food and drinks at diner prices and provides excellent customer service. Save room for dessert! The menu says it all: “we ONLY bake with REAL butter, FRESH cream, REAL vanilla, FRESH fruits and Belgian chocolates.”
Now, I’m certainly not the first to put in a plug for the Range. Just check out their website for others’ rave reviews, and for the menu, hours, and locations. And, though I’ve eaten at only the Range Café location on Menaul NE (four times, at this posting), I have no affiliation with the restaurant or its owners except as a satisfied customer. The restaurant is just one of the mileposts I always stop at when traveling through Albuquerque. I’m hoping readers of this blog will be able to check it out sometime and mark the joys of this milepost with me.
