Left at Albuquerque has a large and innovative menu. It includes appetizers ($3-$10), salads ($4-$10), Tequila Grill (meat and seafood) Specialties ($12-$19), fajitas ($11-$19), Southwestern Seafood ($12-$15), Albuquerque Favorites (meats, ribs, enchiladas) ($10-$18). They also have a small range of lunch specials ($7-$12). They have a full bar. Very full, with 150 different kinds of tequila.
Both of our visits were in late afternoon as a break from sightseeing and shopping. We tried their specialty margaritas, which are served in neat martini-style glasses, and are very good. In our 2 visits, we tried their guacamole and corn cakes appetizers, Gaucho Steak Burrito (yum!), and Taco Twosome Platter (choose from chicken, steak, veggie, or pork). Fresh ingredients and spices make everything very tasty.
