Alamosa Is Close to the ABQ BioParks and the River

Every neighborhood on Route 66 has a little piece of history. Not many people can claim that an iconic roadway runs through their town. But Alamosa is a residential area in a fantastic location, despite being a bite slower paced than the hurry and bustle of yesteryear. Alamosa is located near the ABQ BioParks, which are only a few miles away on the other side of the Rio Grande, and it’s also close to Petroglyph National Monument.

Favorite Restaurants in Alamosa, Albuquerque

Look no farther than El Bronco for genuine Mexican cuisine. El Bronco provides delectable street tacos, especially the Tacos del Pastor. One of the few “trompos” in town is said to be at El Bronco—it’s a tower of meat that gets shaved down with each serving. Menudo is a popular dish at El Bronco, and the service is always good. Wendy’s and Sonic are also located in Alamosa if you need a fast-food meal. On a hot day, who doesn’t like getting a huge limeade from Sonic?
