Stop by here on our way to Kansas City. Must say this place was great, awesome service, great atmosphere, the food was delicious and creative.  Simple, fun and exciting. I wanted to try them all! Sadly, could only try three. All of which were delicious. Definitely will recommend ! More...

The BEST! Such a unique place and SO good. We recently visited from out of town and now I'm obsessed. I harass their Instagram page weekly begging them to open a new location in denver! I recently called in to see if I could buy some gift cards  for some family members who live in Albuquerque and the owner was so kind to HAND DELIVER them to their house for me!! I couldn't believe it! The strawberry with chocolate and Oreo is to die for!! More...

I absolutely love this place. The customer service was just amazing and the process is simple. I know this may sound like a down side, but the fact that the paleta bar doesn't have a dozen of choices makes it easier to pick.  I like that it's delicious, simple, yet creative. My favorite snack addiction ( currently ). More...

I absolutely love this place. The Paleta is very fresh and they have lots of awesome toppings. Whether you're after traditional vanilla, horchata, or fun flavors like taro, you're guaranteed to have something to satisfy. The service is quick and the staff is beyond kind and helpful. This place hits on all levels and should be visited over and over and over. More...

I visit the paleta bar very often ever since i moved to Albuquerque. I haven't tried this type of ice cream in other states before. Wow, this is my new favorite ice cream! I tried many different flavors and by far my favorite is the strawberry cheesecake one. I recommend the paleta bar to everyone who visits Albuquerque! More...

One of my fave guilty pleasures. I usually stick to a mango paleta with tajin and chamoy, but sometimes the aroma of that delicious nacho cheese and the display of all the different types of hot cheeto-esque chips have me feeling some type of way, so I cave. I've enjoyed everything I've tried here so far, but knowing me, I'll always be ride or die for my original order. More...

If you like popsicles, you'll love this place! I went in and sampled a few different flavors. The workers were very friendly and told us everything about the dessert. I got cookies n cream covered in white chocolate with m&ms and oreo. It sounds like diabetes on a stick, but it tasted great! It's a unique texture, but definitely worth the try. More...

This place is quickly becoming one of my favorite spots for a treat in ABQ. It's located right across the street from where I work, so I'll just be sending my paychecks directly to them since I go all the time now, anyway. Every time I've gone I've gotten a different combo. Is there even such a thing as a bad combo here? My favorite so far is the Oreo on Oreo with more chocolate and maybe some more Oreo. I love that this place is so efficient and the process is so streamlined and seamless. The staff was so patient with me my first time trying to decide what to order! I will be back again soon, and then probably the day after that, too. More...

I rarely write reviews, but this place is is so amazing I had to say something. From the customer service to the atmosphere and the quality of products. The staff was eager and passionate to share their product.  They offered us several samples and suggested different combinations for the Paletas. I've never had this style of popsicle and can now say it's my absolute favorite ice cream place! My boyfriend even mentioned that it was the best customer service he's had in Albuquerque. More...

Paleta Bar is go to! The staff is very friendly and happy to explain menu items. Great selection to choose from as well as aguas frescas too. If you go in hungrier, the dori-nachos are a must try. You get a choice of your chips, topped with elote and/or their house-made beef jerky, slathered with nacho cheese, more cheese, and if you'd like, Valentin and pickled jalapeños. The fresh paletas and waters balance the nachos, right? Very solid place and seems they care about our community also. More...

The Paleta Bar is AMAZING! I actually don't live in Albuquerque anymore due to the military but every time I visit my family one of my first stops is the Paleta Bar. The owner is super nice and the people that work there are great at their job. I am obsessed with their jerky. So much I asked if they could send me some bags to Colorado. I ordered 25 bags and they were shipped off the following day. I will continue to order jerky from the Paleta Bar until they open up a location in Colorado. If your from Albuquerque or just visiting I promise you, you won't be disappointed. More...

There are sooooo many options and combinations that there is a high possibility that you will totally find something you like. Don't believe me, try all the flavors and see which one is your favorite!My favorite has to be taro. It's a unique flavor that is not usually found in traditional American restaurants. Then I topped it with white chocolate and strawberries. So good! In addition, the staff is amazing!

I visited this place after spending the weekend in Albuquerque. I was not in the mood for desserts (crazy) when I first found out about The Paleta Bar, but the reviews and pictures made me schedule my drive to stop here before leaving. I'd say it was a good itinerary change because every bite/sip was delicious, heaven. Every flavor mixed to create a flavor that made me "mmmh" every time I took a sip/bite. I felt like I was back home in Puerto Rico or at least on a sunny beach. If my path finds me in Albuquerque again I will go the bar again, but in the mean time I will be longing for my mango shake. I also enjoyed the jerky they sell here, it's thin but has a wonderful flavor and is easy to chew - I tired the flaming hot Cheetos flavor. Lastly, the staff was pretty cool and patient and helped me understand my choices and offered us samples, which was very helpful. More...

Went to the Paleta Bar for the Yelp Elite event and they had changed my favorite paleta! It used to be a strawberry paleta with condensed milk inside but now it seems to be a milk paleta filled with strawberry jam. Anyway, they're yummy even without all the dips and toppings. I was pleased to see a lavender paleta that they had partnered with a local tea store to make. Next time I'll prbably get a watermelon paleta with all the fresh fruit. Anyway, my complaint about this place is always the same-- it's laid out poorly and there isn't enough room to sit (there could be!). We had to eat our paletas in the car and I've seen many others in the car doing the same. At the very least, outdoor seating would be nice. If another paleta place comes around with better environment/seating, patrons will likely choose a place where they can stay and enjoy their treats. Others who went that night said they drove to uptown to sit in the area outside enjoying their paletas. It's about the whole experience-- and that includes where people enjoy your product. More...

The Paleta Bar on Riverside is one of my favorite places to visit on the weekends. They have a wide variety of frozen popsicles and you are able to taste test before you pick your flavor. After choosing your paleta, you have the option of dipping/half-dipping it in milk/dark chocolate or white chocolate, then, you choose a topping to stick to chocolate. My favorite is the piñon! The Paleta bar also provides specialty deserts other than paletas as well as agüas frescas! I recommend you give the cucumber lime drink a try. More...
