All the years I’ve lived here I haven’t rode on the Tram up to the Sandia’s. However I have eaten at “High Finance” at the top. Not sure where the name came from but I recall it was appropriate for the price of the food. I’ve also been to Sadies several times, however I think El Pinto is better. The Frontier Restaurant on Central (Route 66, across from the University) is a required place to visit. But the restaurant illustrates how it’s possible to have too many choices. The Flying Star Cafe is an equally excellent choice, especially since there provide free WiFi (same goes for their coffee shops, The Satellite).
There’s several other places mentioned in the article but I haven’t been to to them.
