Weck's in Rio Rancho, New Mexico.

Passing through the Albuquerque area, we had the opportunity to visit with my son, Larry, and his charming wife, Vickie. My son insisted one morning that he was going to take us out to breakfast. He knew of a place that served big meals and he knew I like to eat a lot. With 5 stores in Albuquerque and one in Rio Rancho, Weck’s seems to be a growing concern. And as for the big meals, their menu proclaims, “A full belly tradition since ’91.” We were about to put that to the test.

Catering to the breakfast and lunch crowd, the restaurant is open daily from 6:30 AM to 2:00 PM. Although we did not sample any of the lunch fare, they offer a selection of hot and cold sandwiches ($8.19), soups, salads and hamburgers ($6.39 to $8.39). As would be expected from a New Mexico restaurant, they also offer southwestern specialties such as quesadillas ($8.19), burritos ($8.19) and enchiladas ($8.19). They also offer vegetarian options. Since breakfast was very good, on a future trip to the Albuquerque area we will have to have lunch at Weck’s to round out Click to enlarge – Pancake sandwich – pancakes, bacon or sausage, one egg any style.our dining experience.
My selection was a Sausage Big Breakfast Burrito ($6.39). It is three scrambled eggs in a rolled flour tortilla with your choice of filling (ham, bacon or sausage – carne adovada – carnitas – chicken – veggie) and a choice of sauce or cheese. Red and green chili sauces are available but I chose the Cheddar and Jack cheese combination. The burrito is served with a large helping of hash brown potatoes. It is served on a large oval platter and certainly lives up to its name, big. The hash browns were the shredded kind, brown and crispy on the outside, steaming hot on the inside. Delicious, they were also covered by the melted Click to enlarge – Full Belly Egg plate – two scrambled eggs, hash browns and 4 strips of crispy bacon.Cheddar-Jack cheese. It was a good tasting meal of ample proportions and certainly worthy of ordering again.
The wife ordered what Weck’s calls a pancake sandwich ($6.89). It is two large buttermilk pancakes, two bacon strips (she ordered sausage instead) and one egg any style. In keeping with the full belly tradition, it is served on two plates. The pancakes were nicely browned, tender and tasty. The egg was cook right to order. A satisfying meal with some for the doggie bag.
My son ordered the Full Belly Egg Plate ($6.89). It is two eggs any style, hash browns and choice of ham, bacon or sausage. He ordered scrambled egg. The eggs were light and fluffy, the bacon just crispy as ordered. Again, in the full belly tradition, it was served on a platter filled to the edge.
The facility was a new, clean and well maintained facility. The serving staff was quick and courteous. They kept the coffee cups full without hovering over the table. All of the food served that day was tasty and well presented. The experience has made me anxious to go back and try the offerings on the lunch menu.
