Although most people prefer going to dinner at around 6 or 7 p.m., certain circumstances might prevent this occurrence. One might be traveling long distances and happen to land in Albuquerque or one might be occupied with other things during the evening and can’t eat until late at night. This guide is for these individuals and groups.
Now since we all know the major fast food chains, we’ll start with them. There are several fast food chains such as McDonald’s, which are open 24/7. Other good fast food joints may not be so advantageous, however here are a few: McDonald’s, Del Taco, Frederico’s Caesar’s Mexican and Greek etc. These locations are always good for easy dining in late hours. If you may not be searching for fast food, or perhaps even just eating at 9-11pm then there are several more options I will list below.
The first location that is not fast food, yet still low priced is the Frontier restaurant. This location is a very popular college student hangout and used to be open 24/7 but now is open until midnight. The prices are great and food is fairly good. The menu is mostly New Mexican styled cuisine but consists of some foreign foods. This location is very recommended and is one of Albuquerque’s most popular restaurants due to the quality of the food. The atmosphere is not all that great but quality will be delivered here. They are located on 2400 Central Ave SE.
The final location is a favorite in Rio Rancho, a suburb of Albuquerque. O’Hare’s grille and pub. Although this location is not open until midnight they close fairly late (around 10pm) so this is still a good option for most individuals looking for food late at night. They serve some of the best deli sandwiches and burgers in town and have good classic pub food. They are moderately priced and offer good value. They are located on 4100 Southern Blvd SE . Although the grille/pub doesn’t look like much, there is much great service and food to be had inside. They offer great pasta and especially sandwiches and burgers as said before. This location is especially known to employ friendly and inviting staff, which is always a plus when you have been busy all day and need to unwind.
Overall, these locations will serve you well in your endeavors to find food late at night in the Albuquerque and Rio Rancho areas.
