Playing catch- up....
Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and Man vs. Food are two of my favorite resources for locating great food finds while I'm on the road, especially dive bars. So of course I had to make the trek out to The Monte Carlo, liqueur store front with a steak house around back. This local dive was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. I decided to have the Small Top Sirloin with baked potato and salad. It was actually really good and especially the low cost.

And of course I love a good wine just as much as the next... but GREEN CHILE WINE!?!????? That might be taking it a bit too far...

After leaving Flying Star, we decided to drive down the street to the Frontier for dessert. They are known for their cinnamon roll. I didn't get a picture because I was too caught up eating. What I did get a picture of was the Green Chile Burger that I took with me to the airport for lunch. As you can see, very simple, but very good.

My friend and co-work RM tried to prepare me for the many culinary delights in ABQ. I went in with a very mediocre set of expectations. But what I left with was a very full belly and an ignited desire to find even more great places on my trip back next week.
