Best Markets in Southern Albuquerque

El Mezquite Market is a grocery store with a few locations throughout New Mexico—most of which are in Albuquerque. One of the locations is in South San Pedro, and it’s a great alternative to grocery shopping at one of the national chains. The produce is fresh, and they have an amazing deli with hot foods you can take home for dinner. One Google reviewer, Rob R. shared, 

“Good prices on produce (limes, onions, peppers), meat, and cheese.  Excellent food prepared daily; especially for breakfast and lunch.  Highly recommend this grocery store for their prices on everything mentioned above, but not the best for items like milk, juice, chips, etc.”

Best Restaurants in South San Pedro

If you love pho, the Vietnamese soup, you’ve got to check out Pho #1 in South San Pedro. This location has an amazing selection of pho, and their spring rolls are also excellent. Google reviewers share that the service is great and the staff is friendly.

Another local favorite is Arturo’s Mexican Food. They offer the convenience of ordering online for delivery or pick-up, and they have dining in the restaurant. Their specialties include carnitas gorditas, chicken torta, and chorizo tacos. Their site shared that they “use the freshest ingredients in preparing our food to provide the best quality and taste.” And Google reviewers tend to agree, with a 4.2 average star review over nearly 700 reviews.

Can ABQ-IT set up a network for a small business?

I need support with a firewall. Can you help?

Yes, absolutely. We can build you a custom firewall just for your business or help you choose from all the top vendors like SonicWall, Palo Alto, or Cisco. We’ll work hard to understand the business drivers and requirements before rushing into a solution.
