Most New Mexicans, and even tourists, know of the wonders Sandia Peak in Albequerque holds. What many might not know, is that there's an unreal restaurant in those New Mexico mountains just waiting for you to book a reservation. Whether you're looking for an adventure as well as a meal, or want to treat your special someone to a unique night out, this is the place to go.
At the top of Sandia Peak sits Ten 3, a literal "elevated" dining experience. Due to it being 10,300 feet above sea level, getting there does not involve your average car ride.
After making your reservation, you'll need to arrive at the Sandia Peak Tramway an hour before you booked your table for at Ten 3.
This gives you time to get tickets for the tram, and soon get seated for an actual tram ride.
The tram ride will last for about 15 minutes and you'll be able to take in some of the most incredible views the whole way up to the restaurant.
There's a lunch, bar, dinner, and drinks menu to choose from once you've arrived for your meal. Whatever you're in the mood for, they've got it!
Their menus have a wide variety of options to choose from, such as salads, chips and dip, burgers, and more.
Their drinks menu has draft beer as well as specialty drinks, all of which are reasonably priced.
Who knows, one or two might take the edge off from being so high up in the New Mexico sky.
Fine dining hours are from 5 to 10 p.m. Wednesday through Monday, and the tram operates from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Monday.
The only day everything is closed is on Tuesday.
Don't worry, the tram will take you back down even if you finish dining past 8 p.m. When you're dining like royalty, you get treated like royalty.
Address: 30 Tramway Rd. NE, Albuquerque, NM
