Garcia’s Kitchen is a local Albuquerque chain of restaurants that offer quick and efficient service with a smile. We also offer off-site catering, from a simple delivery to an elegant sit-down dinner. Our goal is to serve fresh ingredients and meals at moderate prices. Some of our specialties are: handmade tortillas, biscochitos, carne adovada, menudo, salsa and red and green chile sauces.
Andrew Garcia began his culinary career as a traveling salesman. Later, he worked for the U.S. post office, where he became interested in entrepreneurism. He also had a love for food, so he began selling delicious, homemade food at state fairs.
With his family’s support, Garcia opened the first restaurant at 4th Street and Mountain Road in 1975. After seeing a need in the community, he opened Garcia’s Tents and Events (now AA Events & Tents) to offer table, chair, and dance floor rentals at affordable prices.
After 40 years, Garcia’s Kitchen has 7 locations throughout Albuquerque. Andrew’s dream has been realized, and his enterprise employs almost 250 people. His simple wish was for people to be happy and eat good food. He has left a lasting legacy to Albuquerque and his family. Today his children run the business and keep his dream alive. We are constantly trying to grow and improve while maintaining the quality that was set in place by our founder
