Great food and great friendly service.. We will be back..
Excellent, full of clams, very tasty
This is the BEST chicken fried steak not only in New Mexico but anywhere else I have been! We look forward to the day that we can again sit on the patio with our pooch and enjoy the great food and great service!!!
These are the best Nachos ever! A perfect combo and generous serving. Chips are never soggy and cheese is real (not a "cheese like substance"). I like to add black beans.
Two of our family members are vegetarian and always face limited menu options. The awesome folks at Greenside routinely accommodate us by either making the Mac & Cheese with steamed vegetables or the Appetizer Quesadilla with black beans - be sure to get the black beans since the pintos have meat. This gives us two extra tasty options that would not have been available otherwise.
Is was a surprise sandwich. I didn't get the Monte Cristo connection. It was flavorful and the chipotle Chile in sweet was a pleasant surprise.
We didn't use the interactive menu since we already have our favorite memorized. Yes our "usual" lol. But we did use the very easy touchless checkout option on our check. We appreciate all the work you have done to make this situation better for your staff and your customers. Thank you.
Best chicken sandwich to be had in the entire Albuquerque area. The spicy, sweet, and tart flavors all work perfect together, and the chicken was extremely moist.
Delicious! Perfect blend of sweet and spicy with the right amount of real, melty cheese. Great as an appetizer or a meal!
It's fantastic. Every time I finish a KFC, I'm looking forward to the next one. Perfect balance of spice and sweet from the aiolli, the chicken is always crisp, and the kimchi is brilliant. One of my all-time favorite meals and the best sandwich I've ever had.
The Kalua pork tacos with the pineapple relish was to die for. It was like fireworks in my mouth. I am not sure if I have ever had such a satisfying combination of flavors. Highly recommend this dish, five stars.
Excellent delicious burger!
I love this place! Everything is delicious! They have a great gluten free menu also
The Ribeye dinner special was absolutely delicious and made my COVID Birthday memorable. Thanks for always making the best meals this side of the mountain!
Just love this veggie dish. I choose black beans to go with it
Well they are not kidding...The best chicken fried steak in the Land of Enchantment! And while we're at it let's go a state further to the east, yup Texas. My father, a native Texan, dubbed this scrumptious meal from Greenside as the best chicken fried steak he's ever eaten as well! How about that....sorry Texas!! :)
Greenside Cafe is, by far, our favorite restaurant in not only the East Mountains but the entire Albuquerque and surrounding area. The food is absolutely delicious and for two broke college students the prices and portions fit our needs as well. The chicken fried steak is one of the largest portions I have ever seen and usually lasts me two meals! There is a wide variety of offerings on the menu and I love trying out any new items from their seasonal menu. The staff are always friendly and will take the time to suggest food and beer items as well as adjust menu items to fit your personal dietary needs (no green chile for me, even as a native New Mexican! I know, I know, it's a sin!) and there are also plenty of options for kids, those on a plant-based diet, and those with smaller appetites. Even if you don't live in the area, it is well worth the drive to stop by and try something from Greenside!
So many good things....and the people here are swell too :-) But the occasional Peanut Noodles are yummmmy! Sangre de Cristo sandwich is the best too!!
Makes me happy every time.
Have had this many times. Excellent texture and flavor.
This sandwich is absolutely amazing. The chicken is hammered thin and fried. It was perfectly balanced in the sandwich between crunchy and soft, sweet and sour/tangy and spicy. Each bite is a little different but oh so good. The portion was unexpectedly large. I chose the sweet potato fries. They were not soggy, but crisp tender. If you are looking for a palate-pleaser, order the Korean Fried Chicken Sandwich.
The chicken was wonderful. Crispy and so many wonderful flavors! We ordered the meal to go, and my chicken stayed crisp and the bun was bread heaven! The bean sauce/spred was a nice twist. Would recommend 100%. Please try it!
The Sangre de Cristo is a unique sandwhich that is consistently great, without being "trendy". Overall Greenside is a local landmark with hospitable service even in the midst of a pandemic. Great food, great location, great folks....and I am not even related to the owner!!
The meat was cooked well and the gravy was the creamiest I've ever had. It was a lovely meal with wonderful staff.
I have this dish frequently, and it is consistent and always tasty. The raspberry sauce dip is a wonderful supercharger for the taste buds! The Sangre de Cristo is a large sandwich, either half is a full meal. So I take half home for lunch the next day. I get it with either the regular fries or sweet potato fries. And both are delicious and the meal filling. I am not a pickle fan, so I delete that (shudder) from the dish. The service staff are really friendly, and they know our names and we know theirs. They are prompt and caring. That is especially nice during this dang COVID19 Pandemic.
I had the Beer Battered Fried Haddock. It was better than what I have had at the British Beer Company on Cape Cod, MA! As an east coast native, I know my fried fish! And you all at Greenside did it perfectly! Thank you Dylan!
Hands down our family's favorite dish on the menu!
This was delicious. The CFS was so large it almost covered the whole plate, and had to sit on top of the mashed potatoes. The cream gravy just added to the flavor. I had coffee with sugar and cream, and it was fresh and hot! Over the years, I have used the quality of a restaurant's CFS as a measure of how good the place was. Greenside ranks very highly! My wife and I like to put a little tip into the Chef's Box to the right of the door as we leave and ring the bell. We always get a loud "Thank You!" from the kitchen.
Tastes like Korea!
Good stuff Maynard
This review is about the Poke 🍲 Bowl (unlisted). Both my boyfriend and I thought this was killer. We would not have thought about serving it over quinoa, but loved every abundant morsel.
50/50 Burger. Special on May 14th / 15th. I'm a certified expert Greenside Cafe consumer. I have the credentials. The 50 / 50 burger is absolutely one of the top 5 burgers that I have consumed in my long life of as a cheeseburger lover. Amazing. And it was amazing after the 15 min drive home due to the COVID-19 pseudo-quarantine. I can't imagine how perfect the 50/50 burger would be if devoured onsite at Greenside. Great food. Great People. Can't wait for the pseudo-quarantine to end.
This is the best chicken fried steak I've ever had! Delicious for dinner and even as left over for the next day! Superb!
I highly recommend this! It just melts in your mouth!
When making a trip to Greenside Cafe you need to prepare your tastebuds for an explosion of fresh and perfectly balanced flavors unlike any other local restaurant. While it's difficult to choose one item, as everything on the menu is perfection, my favorite hands down is the Korean Fried Chicken (KFC) Sandwich. The combination of flavors from the crispy, flaky buttermilk fried coating on a hot, juicy chicken breast is enough to make any mouth water. But paired with the tangy kimchi slaw and special aioli sauce, trust me when I say, you'll never enjoy another chicken sandwich quite like this again. Personally, I like to round out my meal with sweet potato fries and pair it with a pint of one of the many local brews on tap. Give the KFC a try! You won't be disappointed!
I have gone through the entire menu and haven't had a meal I regretted ordering. Don't tell my husband, but their ribeye is the best I've had! The clam chowder on Fridays is not to be missed, and I grew up in New England.
One of my go-to favorites at Greenside! Everything Our family has order has been great, but the Turquoise Trail Trout is super yummy! Great and friendly service and in warmer months love having a beer on the patio!
Great food! Excellent service! Positive atmosphere! Favorites: brisket tacos, Korean fried chicken sandwich, and one of the finest mole sauces I've tasted. I <3 Greenside's chicken mole enchiladas!
