Albuquerque restaurant and food deals include free Lotaburger, free Slurpee, free Denny’s, a Taco Bell buy one get one free deal, cheap avocados, and more…

Free Lotaburger on Saturday July 7, from 10 am to 4 pm at the Osuna location. Blakes Lotaburger celebrates its 60th birthday by giving out a LotaBurger free original LotaCombo on Saturday, only at the 9601 Osuna Rd NE location (corner of Osuna & Eubank). They’re trying to beat the record of over 3,000 burgers given out on a previous birthday, and I’m sure you can help them! Thanks to reader Mia for tipping us off to the freebie.

Dine at Vernon’s Hidden Valley Steakhouse today, Friday July 6, and you’ll get a $25 credit to use on a future visit to Vernon’s when you tell your server the secret code: “On My Way to Argentina“. That’s because you’ll also get an entry into their drawing to win two seats at their Argentinian wine dinner on July 25, worth $250.

El Pinto Free Ticket Tuesday Eat at El Pinto on Tuesday July 10, and you get a free Isotopes ticket with every entree ordered, valid for the following week.  The reserved level usually cost $13 on game day. Orbit will also be at El Pinto on July 10 from 4:30 – 6:30 pm with free gifts for kids.

Free 7-Eleven Slurpee on 7-Eleven Day, Wednesday July 11, between 11 am and 7 pm at participating locations. No purchase is required to get a free Slurpee, served in special 7.11 ounce cups, while supplies last.

The Dawg Gone Good doggie boutique and spa in Nob Hill is holding a sale through Sunday July 8 with discounts from $4 to $12 on merchandise, and if you spend $15 or more they’ll give your dog a free Yoghund frozen yogurt plus you get a 10% discount for human variety Olo frozen yogurt next door.

Reader Kenny knows I’m a big fan of avocados, so he dropped an email to let us ALL know that Sunflower Markets has Haas avocados at 3 for a dollar (or 77 cents each for organic) until Wednesday, so this could be a good time to get your guac on. Sunflower also has almonds for $3.99 a pound in several varieties, including (yum!) dark chocolate-covered almonds. Kenny says he bought some and they’re good – thanks Kenny, carry on munching (we’re all jealous).

Albuquerque / Santa Fe Entertainment Book is discounted to $8.99 plus free shipping. The regular price is $40 for the Albuquerque coupon book. The $8.99 offer is valid on any city’s book (search for cities here by zip code) for about 140+ locations nationally, including Las Vegas, Orlando, Dallas, and Hawaii (most other city books usually cost $35).

Flying Star Cafe’s Burger ’n’ Shake deal Buy a burger or rancher’s melt and get a milkshake for $3 (usually $4.99) – it’s a limited time summer deal, not sure when it ends, so slurp your shake soon!

The Bishop’s Lodge Ranch Resort & Spa nearly half-price deal on Groupon for a one night stay on the 450-acre resort in Santa Fe. It’s not strictly a food deal, but I’ve stayed at Bishop’s Lodge and it’s SO beautiful and relaxing, with a lovely shady pool to lounge around, and it’s normally rather expensive, so I’m passing on the word. The one night package starts from $165 for a deluxe room for two adults (and up to two kids free) including the resort fee, and other options include $229 for with breakfast and a $100 resort credit. The offer via Albuquerque Groupon is available till Saturday to purchase, then stay by September 30, 2012.
