My wife and I travel a lot in our RV around the states and we always stop at DDD hangouts. This one is one of the top three we have been to, excellent food. Make an effort to stop by, you won't be disappointed.
This was my third Triple D stop, and the Caribbean Goat Stew was wonderful. I was meeting my sister and her husband for a camping trip outside of Albuquerque and they had left late. I decided to go to Jambo alone and I'm glad I did. there was quite a line but I was able to sit at the bar. All the staff were super friendly and the food came out quickly for as busy as they were. I tried to stop again on my way back through town on Sunday, but unfortunately, they were closed. Next time I head that direction I plan to try the Moroccan Lamb Stew. I live in WA so it may be a while before I get to try it.
Great place and the owner is super nice. Love this place
