Duran Central Pharmacy • Albuquerque


Duran Central Pharmacy is just down east of Old Town Albuquerque. Tucked away in back through the aisles of soaps, sundries, medications, post/greeting cards and personal hygiene is a nice, quiet, no frills drug store lunchcounter with some tables, a patio and a counter with stools. This was the first place we ate in ABQ. We were on a walk to Old Town from our bed and breakfast where we had been given the down low on it. Otherwise, we wouldn't have had a clue. Because of that and from the looks of who was there we would venture that it is a locals place and we gather it has been in operation for a very long time - 40s-50s? - that it is indeed frequented by a wide swath of the community who no doubt want to keep it that way - and that it is "real" Albuquerque. If I lived here I would bring my out of town guests here to give them a taste of my town's best real bare bones food. We sat at the counter to be close to the action. The people couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. We had a good time talking with everyone. It was real food, real hot, real good and real reasonable. I was told it was authentic Northern New Mexican comfort food. The tortillas were freshly made and buttered - they were the best we've ever had - they held up well for sopping duty on the green chile stew.
