I have no idea what they're serving up in Shreveport, but I can tell you New Mexican food is very a different variation of the Mexican food you're probably use to having over there.

For example, I dig this place....

Dinner Menu | Sadie's of New Mexico
I usually order a Prickly Pear Margarita, and enchiladas with blue corn tortillas stuffed with shredded brisket and smothered in green chile sauce.

The NM state fair is approaching, looking forward to having Indian Tacos on fry bread with shredded buffalo meat, those are awesome.

For breakfast, huevos rancheros smothered in red chile sauce
Menu | Range Café

The bacon wrapped meatloaf at this joint is yummy!
Menu | Standard Diner

So there's a sampling, and ABQ is a big enough city to find just about anything else running the gamut between Italian, Thai/Vietnamese, Indian, BBQ, craft beer breweries, etc. Just scratch seafood, I'm sure your much better off having that in Louisiana. That's just something you shouldn't order here unless you want to settle for a chain and go to Papadeaux. But yeah, we have great food here

Why all these comparisons to Shreveport?

Shreveport isn't known for food, I'd take NM all day.

Shreveport food, like New Orleans and South Louisiana, would put Albuquerque to shame except for the Mexican food.

I live in Shreveport currently, and it is my frame of reference.

Shreveport has very very little in common with New Orleans and the rest of south Louisiana. The Mexican food in Albq would most likely trample over everything coming out of Shreveport.

I have some relatives from Denver, and I took them to Trejos, our best Mexican Restaurant, and they couldn't eat it because they thought it was so horrible. I personally like Trejos, so I'm wondering if our food is bad or just different?

Did your relatives mention what was so horrible about the food? I've never been to Shreveport, but I can't imagine it having better Mexican food than Albuquerque.

It's bad. Especially looking for ethnic food. I'm sure there's good southern food at places though.
