The Best Steakhouse Restaurants in Albuquerque

The OpenTable Team

Albuquerque, New Mexico captures the essence of the American frontier with its saloon-style restaurants. The city really shines when it comes to steak. Albuquerque steakhouses offer all types of cuts, from sirloin to brisket, lavished in classic peppercorn sauce or Mexican mole, plus a range of sides. Steak gets served with deep-fried jalapenos on the old Route 66, or perhaps you'd prefer red chili beef bites or flat iron with spicy mash. But where are the fussiest carnivores eating out? Welcome to the Tastemaker List. We’ve gone on a mission to find the best steakhouse in Albuquerque by creating this exclusive list of the finest steak and chop houses in the city. Browse our list of the best steakhouse in Albuquerque, and book a table tonight.
