Owner has been in Santa Fe 30 years and comes from Mexico. He was with his daughter the day I purchased one of his famously good chicken fajitas. Very friendly people. Quick service. Excellent pricing (especially for Santa Fe). Superb food with loads (no skimping...here) of tender, juicy chicken inside the fajita. In this post-covid restriction times, I entered two restaurants that said they were open, but no one came to greet me or seat me, so I eventually left. Really glad because it allowed me to find El Molero, its excellent food, no waiting, no frills. A must. Located at SW corner of main plaza. I lived in Mexico for 7 years and this food brought back many great memories. Try this very safe street food … you’ll love it. I understand now why it is a Santa Fe institution. Yum.More

We've eaten here many times over the years. Always delicious, and always inexpensive. If you want a quick an d delimcious meal on the plaza, this is the place to go.

Conveniently located on the Plaza in Santa Fe. Beef and chicken fajitas are what I have had with all the fixing. Perfect when you want something while wandering in Santa Fe.

This food stand is on the SW corner of the square and the Limeade and the fajitas are terrific!! Every time I. One to Santa Fe this is a GREAT spot to grab a bite and sit on a park bench and relax. They have...been here for years and it’s because they do a great job and are nice friendly people! You might not be accustomed to eating food from a street vendor but trust me, you will love it. Even if you aren’t hungry, get a limeade!More

The Plaza just doesn't seem the same if Molero isn't grilling the meats for these incredible grab and go fajitas. Tender and VERY juicy. If you have your favorite pooch along, better be prepared to share!

Time and time again the deliciously thin home-made tamales make me come back. Taste the real Mexican cuisine.

It was tasty and not to expensive. We ate in the park under the sun. It was a beautiful day. Nice memories.

After going out from the hotel to visit the town we had a quick lunch in this food stand in the Santa Fe Plaza. We took the fajitas and it was very tasty.

Cart with excellent fajitas. Food is very good, but no place to sit down. You can hope for a bench in the center of the Plaza, but during tourist season (year round?) you may have to stand while eating, or sit on the curb. Still...worth the experience.More
