The history of Andele Restaurant starts in 1996, when Phil Schneider and his daughter Andrea opened a humble take-out window with limited menu options. The small eatery quickly earned a reputation of its signature dish, delicious tacos al carbon made with the highest-quality chicken, beef, and pork slow-cooked on a spit in front of a wood-burning oven.
As the restaurant grew in popularity, it moved to its current location in Oñate Plaza where it now offers multiple dining rooms, two banquet facilities, a mercado, and a tortilleria. Offering customers the highest-quality, preservative-free corn and flour tortillas has been a popular decision at Andele Restaurant and Andele’s Dog House.
Andele’s Dog House was opened in 2011 to add a patio dining concept and was one of the first dog-friendly restaurants in the area. A few years later, the Schneider family purchased the Ol’ Gringo Chile Company, where popular Andele salsas are jarred for retail sales. Along with the separate Ol’ Gringo line of sauces and chile, the company distributes the unique flavors of New Mexico chile nationwide.
Today, Andele Restaurant is a local favorite for traditional New Mexico style meals, whether for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You are invited to “get your fix” at Andele seven days a week!
