The Quarters BBQ

Come see what’s on the menu
here at Quarter's Barbeque

How long has it been
since you’ve had delicious grilled chicken

Do step up to bat
for an El Pancho Greenblatt

This place is packed at noon
for lunch in the dining room

An everyday happenin’
been here since beer cans were tin

It’s a barbeque world view
right here in the ABQ
When you take hold of the doorknob
thinking cold drink and shish kabob

Have a tasty rib eye steak
this kinna’ cookin’ you cannot fake

Try the Fillet Mignon
of which i am so fond

Or if you get a chance to grab
the Alaskan king crab

You’re gonna’ love one of these
with a side of macaroni and cheese

For you to get your fill
is the reason we fire up the grill
Pull up to the copper bar
there’s plenty of parking for your car

The reason that we came
before the Lobo basketball game

You make the call
on your happy hour cheeseburger special

Catfish is unbelievable
with a side of steamed vegetables

Forty five cent chicken wings
and a side of onion rings

This could be your destiny
some of the best food in Albuquerque
The moment is never dull
and your glass is always full

Here to tell the tale
at Cesar Chavez and Yale

Tom at the bar
who the owner adores

Will likely become
a friend of yours
