Welcome to Los Cuates!

We are happy that you decided to visit!

We’re proudly locally owned since 1980. Many other restaurants and national chain eateries have come and gone in that time, and we’re still one of Albuquerque’s favorite places to eat. Come in and find out why!

Greetings From Los Cuates!

Here at Los Cuates, we strive to give our guests a truly memorable dining experience. We have been serving Albuquerque for over 40 years. While so many things can change in 40 years, the delicious food and extraordinary service never do. It is tremendously important to us to keep consistent with original recipes and an ambiance with a family feel. Each restaurant has hand-selected beautiful décor to make you feel right at home. Los Cuates has three restaurants in Albuquerque to conveniently fulfill your craving!

The Los Cuates traditional salsa is truly unlike any other. It is sweet and very spicy, which our guests find addictive. There is a second, equally tasty salsa also available to accommodate our guests not looking to break away from a traditional tomato-jalapeno-based salsa. Our Los Cuates salsa is available in bulk sizes so our guests can take a little piece of us with them when they are home.

Los Cuates uses fresh ingredients to prepare items such as fresh guacamole, pico de gallo and sopapillas daily. One of our most popular dishes is the Chile Relleno Plate. Our Chile Rellenos are prepared in-house by roasting the meaty Anaheim chiles, peeling away the skin, stuffing them full of Cheddar Cheese and wrapping them in a crispy batter, frying them until they are golden and DELICIOUS! Once you are hooked, it’s difficult to order anything else and try our new dishes.

We pride ourselves on our baked carne adovada, 10-hour roasted shredded beef and our Espinaca con Queso. This Espinaca con Queso is a creamy chile con queso prepared with pepper jack cheese, fresh spinach and tomatoes. It is fabulous! It is served alongside our traditional chile con queso and fresh guacamole as an appetizer, but also comes smothered atop our Seafood Enchiladas, another truly perfect dish! In the mood for STEAK, try our hand cut 10 oz Ribeye and Enchiladas, Carne Asada Combination Plate or Los Cuates Steak Combo. You will be 100% satisfied. We guarantee it!

Sweet tooth? Don’t worry, Los Cuates has you covered there too! We serve you sopapillas, just for dining in with us, but also offer Fried Ice Cream and Funnel Cake. Yes, FUNNEL CAKE. Now you don’t have to wait for the State Fair to come to town. We will even give you one on us when you dine with us on your birthday! Surprise, we might even just sing to you! Every Sunday, we serve complimentary natillas to all of our dine in guests.
