A group of us were attending a conference at Buffalo Thunder and were referred to come here for dinner. It's a casual ambience, and they have their own parking lot. I had the stuffed sopaipilla, with ground beef and both the red and green chili sauce. The red sauce was hotter than I, and some of the others expected -... More

We went back here twice because it was so good. Excellent food that did not seem toned down or 'Gringofied'. They also serve a great traditional Margarita.

We have not had a bad meal in Santa Fe or Albuquerque. But this was clearly the best we've had so far. Just the right heat for us Midwesterners. Had sopapillas stuffed with cooked vegetables and flautas with chicken. Prepared perfectly, had the green and red on the side. Randy Travis did frequent here while living in Santa Fe. They... More

We love going here for many reasons, but the food is number one. The green chili is always just right and the variety is grand. If you don't wish to have regular New Mexican Fare, then there are other options. On this evening my husband had the Green Chili Enchiladas and I had the Greek Salad. Both were excellent and...

Fun location in the rail yard with real, active trains moving around. Clean, attractive and inviting restaurant. Comfortable and open. Very good service. Good place for lunch. But for the life of me all I can remember about the food is that the Salsa was SO HOT it was painful but it was also SO GOOD that I couldn't stop... More

We went here in a large group of a little over 30 middle schoolers and the staff were very accommodating. The food and atmosphere of the whole restaurant were generally very appealing and I will definitely come by if I am ever in the area again.

Friends who ate at this restaurant while traveling recommended it when they heard we would be in Santa Fe. They said the food was good and spicy and we have to agree. My husband had the chicken enchiladas with red sauce which had a good "kick". I had the chicken quesadilla. This was not spicy, but it was very tasty.... More

This restaurant comes highly recommended and is always very crowded. Portions are huge, and purport to be authentic cuisine, but we found the quality unrefined/not fresh. Chiles rellenos were soggy/oily, tamales bland and dry.

The food is some of the best in Santa Fe. My wife and i eat there regularly. The place gets pretty busy during lunch and dinner, so be ready to wait, but well worth it.

When in New Mexico you must try this place. The food is wonderful. You just savor each mouthful knowing that the next bite will be as good.
