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.

Great spot,but very busy. Well worth the wait. The guacamole was second to none. We had two orders of it. I had pork chops smothered in green chilis. It was just right. Sweet and hot. They also bring soppa pias. With honey to balence the hot of the chilis. It's was great. There's a line and a wait. It's worth... More

It's a good as I remembered. And as busy. We were there on a week night, but the large parking lot was full and I parked a couple of blocks away. The place was packed, but by the time our tasty Silver Coin margaritas arrived at the bar, our table was ready. You just can't choose the wrong dish here.... More

The food service and prices are good. We would suggest going early to dinner. This is a very busy place. It was recommended by a local and she indicated that this is where the locals eat when they go out.

One of our favorite New Mexican restaurants. Blue corn tortilla, posole, and sopapillas are all very well done. Daily plates are delicious. The blue-corn chicken enchiladas are delicious. Right by the train depot. We love this place!

This was recommended to us as a place for simple, yet good New Mexican food. We had a combination plate and chalupas...red and green chili were hot- just as promised. The service was fast and the wait staff was efficient. There is a lot of history in this place too...a definite must when visiting Santa Fe!
