An Amazing Brew-Pub! – This brew-pub is a gem in a quaint "just off-campus" neighborhood. There is a large outdoor seating area, and ample room inside for a large crowd. The site is an old car dealership, and nostalgic and fun articles abound, including antique gas pumps. They offer 12-15 hand-crafted brews, and the drink menu mentioned seasonal brews when appropriate. The main "pub room" has several large flat screen televisions to watch your favorite sports. We tried several of the brews and were impressed by the quality ingredients and innovative draft styles.
The "pub" food is reasonably priced, and the portions are HUGE! The young wait-staff is very prompt and checks with you often for refills and assistance. I saw a review complaining of flies - yep, but the place is cavernous, and I really don't know what they can do about that. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and look forward to returning to Kelly's the next time we're in Albuquerque.
You want FLIES with that? – At first, I thought it was just me. Half way through my lunch, I seriously considered getting it to go and eat in my car. However, when other patrons told the waitress "the flies are killing me - you should get some fly strips", that pretty much confirmed it! The waitress explained hanging fly strips in the restaurant would not be permitted. Wow - so this is not new! With so many flies in the dining room, I can only imagine how many are in the kitchen. I wouldn't waste my time and money coming back here.
Kelly's is a nice place to sit and eat whether you are outdoors or want to sit in it is a nice place to be! They have great sevice and are very friendly.
Kelly's? Location. Location. Location. – I like Kelly's mostly because of it's central location... and when I say central, I mean "Central". Located near the University and on one of Albuquerque's main streets, it's has an open atomosphere, whether you like being Indoors looking out through the large windows or being Outdoors with the stars as your ceiling. On hot summer nights, there's nothing like an ice cold brew in a patio social setting!
all the beer you can drink – I loved the sweet potato fries, never had them before, and would eat them everyday, since having them at Kelly's
