Taco Cabana

Taco Cabana, Albuquerque

The first time I visited Albuquerque over a decade ago, I arrived on the last leg of a three-month cross-country drive (my best vacation ever). Taco Cabana was my first dining experience in Albuquerque.  I chose it largely because it looked like it served local fast food, and had a clean, cheerful look. I was impressed both with the quality of the food I ordered (I had steak tacos), and the friendliness of the staff. In fact, Taco Cabana shaped some of my earliest positive impressions of Albuquerque and became my go-to place for a quick dinner or light breakfast.

Taco Cabana serves tasty fajitas, quesadillas, tacos, and breakfast burritos and tacos. It has an excellent salsa bar with all sorts of ‘fixin’s’ and condiments. Everything is freshly made with quality ingredients. The seating and outdoor patio offer a more inviting dining experience than the typical fast food eatery.


This is a Mexican fast food (not New Mexican) chain with a number of Albuquerque locations. The prices are light on the budget, and the portions are fresh, generous and tasty. They also serve refreshing low-priced margaritas and cold beer during dinner hours.

Taco Cabana serves fast food that is a higher quality alternative to typical fast-food chains. If you want to feed a large group on the cheap, this is one of the best places to do so in Albuquerque. Be sure to search online for Taco Cabana coupons that typically offer awesome deals.
