Mary & Tito's Cafe Restaurant Review

: A fixture in the North Valley since 1963, Mary & Tito’s Cafe isn’t merely still going strong --- it’s going incendiary. Antoinette Knight carries on the legacy of her parents, Mary Ann and Tito Gonzales. Long the secret of loyal locals, the restaurant has been “discovered” beyond state lines --- though the cooking remains as utterly pure and simple as ever. The exemplary red chile (with or without beef) smothers just about everything here from omelets to tamales to the fresh-tasting chile rellenos; equally famed are the carne adovada, chicharrones and savory stuffed sopapillas with sides of refrieds done right. For dessert, there’s Mexican wedding cake. The only downside --- besides the early closing time (between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. depending on the day) --- is that you can’t cool your heels (or your satisfyingly singed palate) with a beer: no alcohol is served here.

Mary and Tito's in Albuquerque, New Mexico
by mlberry on Wed Jul 02, 2014 11:36 am
 
I have lived in the Albuquerque area for over forty years. I have been by Mary and Tito's many times over the years, but had not stopped in. However, upon seeing this restaurant in the top ten I decided to try it.

Food was slow in coming, but fair. Red chili had a distinctive and pleasant taste, but the food was served luke-warm on a cold plate. The Green Chili Relleno was cold inside with the cheese still in a solid state not melted. The taco was assembled with wilted lettuce and cold meat. Not what I had expected from a top ten restaurant.

I have had much better quality and service in Mexican Restaurants on Fourth Street elsewhere in the city.
