Nestled at the foot of the Sandia Mountains, Albuquerque is not only New Mexico's largest city, but home to the country's best Mexican food. I found myself stopped over on my way to a wedding 2.5 hours north in Taos. Hungry, and with a road trip ahead of us, we made a stop at a nearby local haunt. Taqueria Mexico is the perfect drop-in, quick fix spot, and a highlight of my trip. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu - offering tacos, burritos, tortas and other homemade specialties. Just 11 minutes from Albuquerque's Sunport, Taqueria Mexico is convenient for fueling your layover or beginning your visit to the Southwest.
