Completely different than anything you will experience as you are brought back in time to gangster days in Chicago. The atmosphere is fun and the food is excellent. I had a ribeye that was tender and juicy. Make sure you get the secret pass word or you won't make it in.

It was the BEST BURRITO that I have had in Albuquerque. Fabulous Flavor. Big portion, excellent red chilli.

Found this on TripAdvisor while my girlfriend was bored out of her mind the night before we had to end our vacation and fly back home. I was looking for something to do that would be fun for dinner. If you don't mind blowing $200 -$250 on dinner, you'll love this place. Very clever setup to get in but I... More

From entering to leaving, Vernon's Speakeasy was completely and utterly outstanding. You know the premise: a reservation is required and they give you a password. We arrived as a foursome had just entered. Knock on the door and a fellow opens a peephole and told us "hold your horses". Less than a minute later he asked for the "passwoid" and... More

This place is amazing!. Great food, atmosphere and service. First class!. With the whole speakeasy vibe and the play on the mob, can't beat this for a change in atmosphere.

Mystery and hard to fine. This restaurant has a mysterious sense to it. It is hard to find as there are no signs saying Vernon's speak easy or restaurant.I passed it up two times trying to find it in the dark. The driveway is not lit up. There's a code keyboard on the door when you find it. You have... More

My husband and I went here for an early Valentine's night out and what an excellent choice!!! First, it was fun knocking on a old fashioned looking door under a red light, and giving a password to get in. We were greeted by a gentleman in 40's era gangster garb and were in turn led by another greeter to our... More

Vernon's Hidden Valley Steakhouse is the only speak easy in New Mexico! We feature exquisite steaks and seafood in a superb dining atmosphere. The culmination of live music, great food and top notch service, as well as the need for "the Password", create an atmosphere and dining experience that surely proves to be one of a kind.
