It's hard to review this place based off of food, seeing as how it's supposed to be a grocery store. They have a self service food area and various eateries offering pizza, sandwiches, ice cream, bar-b-que, etc. I've never been disappointed by the food they offer. This is usually where I end up buying my beer in Austin, because my girlfriend likes to eat there, so I just go ahead and pick up some beers when we're done eating. They keep all of their beer in a large walk in cooler and have a very good selection. Their beer prices are competitive and you can break up any six pack. They recently added a bar to the back of the store and will fill growlers. The staff is very helpful and will retrieve a beer from the back if they don't have any out. If you're looking for a quick tasty lunch, this place is my recommendation. You can also pick up a beer from the bar, a growler, or grab some bottles from their cooler. The atmosphere is a little busy, since it is still a grocery store. But you can take your food outside to eat to their patio or upstairs to their terrace.

Really great Whole Foods. This is one of the nicest ones I have ever been inside of and the refrigerated beer cave is really cool. They had a big selection, but nothing special.

Very good health/natural store with an impressive selection of beers. Very nice collection of imports, as well as domestic craft.

A lot to like here.

A good tap selection that allows one to drink a good beer while shopping. The prices are pretty reasonable. Add to this that you can buy some food and head up to the roof and chill with a beer. Add to that that there's a play structure up top as well, so you can drink away and relax while your children have a blast on the play structure.

The package selection is pretty damn solid but you won't find any rarities here, at least I didn't. Still, if you just want a sixer of something good, it'll be here.

Great Whole Foods that I wish could be duplicated here in New Mexico.
