Decided to visit again since they have changed their name from Blue Corn Cafe to Chama River. The have changed the format also, went from southwest flare to an uncommonly good steakhouse. Still very casual and reasonable prices but the menu is impressive and the steaks are fantastic.

Same brewer but they have expanded the brewing capacity and the quality of the beers seems to have improved. Upped their taps to 10 on tap at a time.

Closed in the patio and made that area somewhat of a cigar bar now. Definitely spent some bucks upgrading the interior, real nice atmosphere now!

I will definitely spend more time there!

I have visited Blue Corn several times since moving here, and I have yet to be impressed with the food. basically the food is just marginal when compared to other southwestern cuisine present in the area. Fortunately I hear that they are converting the Albuquerque location to more of an upscale steak house.

As for their beers, their regular lineup beers (Atomic Blonde, End of Trail Brown, High Altitude pale, etc) are just moderately good and haven't warranted my returning often. However, their specials or seasonals seem to be of much higher caliper. There Pumpkin Ale and Jack Rabbit IPA were quite the step up from their regulars.
I will continue to frequent Blue Corn if only to try whatever seasonal they happen to have at the moment.
