Best Restaurant

since 1999

Rio Rancho’s Neighborhood Brewpub

Since 1999, we have been serving up the best pizzas, calzones, and grinders from our wood-fired oven, and hand-crafted ales and lagers from our on-premise brewhouse. Come join us for a pint of one of the dozen or so beers we have on tap, in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Come and see for yourself why locals call us “The Pub”, or simply “Turtle.”

End of an Era, We’re Retiring our Mug Club 🙁 
To the Turtle Mountain Community: 
Due to the impossible task of being able to properly clean and sanitize individual mugs, and for the overall safety of all of you, our patrons, we have made the difficult decision to retire the Mug Club after 22 years.
I have so many fond memories of the original Mug Club shelf at the old Turtle, and I can still picture the mugs and name the founding members.  The camaraderie continued when we moved into this new building back in 2006. But alas, all good things must come to an end …

Hours for 2021
To the Turtle Mountain Community:
We finally have some good news to report!  
I know that being closed for lunch business Monday thru Thursday has been inconvenient for many of you, and it certainly has been revenue-negative for the employees who previously worked those shifts. In an effort to put 2020 behind us and focus on returning to a normal state in 2021, we have decided to return to our pre-closure hours beginning on Friday, January 1st, 2021. These hours will be:
Sun-Thurs: 11am to 7:30pm
Fri&Sat: 11am to 8:30pm
