Fodor's Expert Review Ranch House

$ South Side Barbecue

Given New Mexico's deep ties to its easterly neighbor, the Lone Star State, it's hardly surprising that the region has some top-notch barbecue joints, including this bright, spacious contemporary adobe building with two large patios that looks a bit fancy but turns out superb fall-off-the-bone barbecue brisket, baby-back ribs, pulled pork, and smoked half-chicken. Fish tacos, steaks, burgers, and traditional New Mexican dishes round out the extensive menu. Don't mind the location near several car dealers just off Cerrillos Road (about a 15-minute drive from the Plaza)—the Ranch House is quite inviting inside.
