I went in hungry to the point of shaking after helping a friend move, and nothing would have worked but a burger. It was the most amazing burger, on the best gluten-free bun I've tried. And then our server pointed out that they also had gluten-free cake. He convinced me to try it and I'm so glad I did! Coconut and lemon and ... wow! Sweet ambiance, relaxed vibe, friendly staff. Highly recommended.

My truck rides so smoothly after its time at this shop! I'm visiting family for the holidays and brought the truck here from out West with a terrible-sounding grind in the transmission. A shop back home had given me the go-ahead to do the drive, partly because they didn't see it as an urgent fix, but also because pulling out the transmission is a royal pain. I heard no such whining at this shop. These guys were professional and thorough. They also took care of a couple of other issues (an oil leak and a sticky parking brake) with no fuss and at low cost. Kept me informed the whole time and didn't make me feel like a tool. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Whoever's stocking the bikes at this shop is doing a phenomenal job! Great range and high quality. I stopped in today to test-ride some bikes, and I've fallen in love with a Salsa touring bike. I wanted to sleep on the purchase, which meant getting online to check the bike's specs and the shop's reviews. Glad to see my positive experience today is shared by others. Now I won't hesitate to commit!

Gluten intolerants beware: When I moved a couple of blocks from one of the Albuquerque locations last year, I was so excited. They had a couple of "gluten not" items on the menu, the dessert items in the case looked to die for, and the coffee was good. By now, the cracks have started to show. Despite the supposed attention to the gluten issue on the menu, the staff are completely in the dark about allergies. All the managers know to say is something along the lines of: "gluten not doesn't mean gluten free; there will be some contamination on the grill." It's almost like they got in front of the curve a few years ago, but then stayed put while the curve passed them by. As widespread and long-standing as the gluten issue is, they need to step it up (and train their staff). At least at the downtown Albuquerque location, the managers will take a minute to look through the ingredients list to make sure. The Santa Fe location is a disaster that way. Don't expect the staff to know which dishes contain flour (both the red and green chile, for example), and don't expect the cooks to be willing to wipe down the grill for gluten-allergic customers. Better luck at Tomasita's across the street.

This place treated my dog (and me, and my other dog) SO well when she blew her ACL and had to have TPLO. The whole hospital was efficiently run, thorough and quiet. That last part matters when your pet is recovering from surgery! I was impressed at every stage - from Dr. Lirtzman's capable evaluation, to my ability to hang out all day in an exam room and watch my dog's surgery on screen, to the kind and attentive after-care she got following the procedure. The techs were so good to her. She especially loved the icewater compression technique, borrowed from the cutting edge of human sports medicine! True to form, she blew the other ACL within a year, after we had moved out of state. I had her second surgery done in our new city and the experience was like night and day -- a regrettable assembly line process that required much longer recovery time and made me wish I'd made the trip back to Arizona. If I ever have to, I'll go back to ASG in a heartbeat!

These guys are so nice, knowledgeable and helpful. They seem to just love to talk bikes, whether or not there's a sale in it for them. Some of the older reviews are talking about snootiness, but I haven't seen it any of the times I've been in in the past year!

These guys come to the downtown Albuquerque Farmer's Market, and I rarely pass by their booth without indulging in a gluten-free sticky bun. That, and coffee, and I am in Heaven!
