It's called "Happy Hour" for a reason. After a drink or two and some great food with coworkers, the rest of your night is sure to be fantastic. One of the best new places for Happy Hour near Olympus Solaire Apartments is Garduno's of Mexico. They have a lively atmosphere to cheer you up after a long workday, as well as awesome food and drink specials.

All About Garduno’s

Garduno's is a family-owned company with a few restaurants in New Mexico. Their newest location on the west side of Albuquerque just opened a few weeks ago, and it's quickly gaining a following. Garduno's takes pride in using the freshest ingredients — from chiles to rice and beans — and offering excellent hospitality. They even operate their own chile-packing plant in Winrock!

The Menu

The menu at Garduno's features a nice selection of small plates and appetizers for sharing, along with some larger entrees. The Bloody Mary ceviche is a favorite, along with the table side guacamole, which is prepared right in front of you. For a more filling appetizer, try sharing the carne asada fries.

If you have a big appetite, you can't go wrong with the fajitas. Choose between chicken, steak, and shrimp, or opt for a combination! The sizzling meat is served with guacamole, pico de gallo, refritos, peppers, onions, and rice. Other popular options include the chimichangas, street tacos, and enchiladas.

Happy Hour Options


Garduno's offers a daily happy hour. The specials are always changing, but common choices include $6 shrimp avocado cocktails, $6 quesadillas, and $5 mini tacos. Pair your food with a pink cactus, cucumber fresca, or blood orange margarita.

The new Garduno's is located at 10030 Coors Blvd. NW in Albuquerque. Stop by soon and contact us if you are looking for a new apartment community to call home. We would love to take you on a private tour of our wonderful community!
