Merritt Acres Has a Smith’s, Lots of Restaurants

Merritt Acres is a neighborhood pretty much right in the middle of Northwest Albuquerque. It’s got some residential areas, and some industrial areas, including a large section of land taken up by Acme Iron and Metal recycling center. But there are some great local highlights, including the legendary Sadie’s. We’ll hit you with some of the highlights.

Best Restaurants in Merritt Acres

We have to start by mentioning Sadie’s of New Mexico. There are a few locations in town, this one being the Los Ranchos de Albuquerque location. Sadie’s has been voted the Best New Mexican Food seven times, and also #1 Best Green Chile, #1 Best Margarita, and in the top 3 for Best Red Chile. Needless to say, locals love it, and it’s not a trip to Albuquerque if you don’t go to Sadie’s.

One Google reviewer, George V. shared,  

“Fantastic place! Great for families, children, and couples. The food they provide is wonderful and plentiful. The prices are honestly reasonable. The staff was welcoming and attentive to the customer’s order.”
