Nachos Royale quite tasty. Well prepared with extremely hot jalapeños. Margaritas well prepared, except...tequila was minimal. Service pleasant and attentive.

I've eaten here multiple times on my visits to Santa Fe, and it continues to make the best Posole in town. Paired with their huge house margaritas, Del Charro is one of my favorite lunch spots in Santa Fe.

Enjoyed cocktails in front of the roaring fire in the cozy saloon. Conveniently located. Reasonable prices.

We ate dinner here on Christmas Eve and it was packed, yet the service was prompt and friendly! Margarita was one of the best I've ever had - lives up to it's reputation! The food was very good too, maybe one step above good bar food, but served quickly considering the crowd there. Fun place to eat and people watch.

I asked one of the locals where to get good margaritas, and he enthusiastically recommended Del Charro. I agree--the margaritas are excellent. They're very smooth, and aren't bitter or salty. They come with a shaker on the side. Our service was good, people were friendly, and we'll definitely return to Del Charro next time we're in Santa Fe.

This restaurant and saloon came highly recommended by our hotel staff. If I hadn't eaten at a couple of other restaurants in the Plaza area I would have rated this much higher. We can rate their margaritas as the best in Santa Fe. They make them at your table and leave the shaker. Great food and atmosphere...

We love this place and have been coming for years. The margaritas are my favorite! Food is very reasonably priced but high quality and yummy. The boneless wings are great! My son's birthday is next week and they comped his dessert, a huge sundae. We got the chocolate mousse cake which is fantastic, go for it you won't be disappointed.

Heard about this place from friends since we are new to the area. We were asked for our ID's at the door - we are both in our late 40's so I thought that was odd. Service was adequate. Good selection of beer and chatted with friendly locals at the bar. We each had two beers and shared a third... More

We have stayed at the Inn of the Governors numerous time and this is their bar/restaurant. Service is good, people are friendly, nice fireplace and flat screens TV's for watching sports. Sit back, relax and have a Margarita!

Cross-country traveling on Thanksgiving always makes for a crap-shoot in finding a good Thanksgiving dinner. This time, Del Charro Saloon in Santa Fe delivered the goods in a stunning way! We enjoyed a three-course meal: soup/salad, a turkey dinner with all the trimmings, and dessert (apple pie or pumpkin bread pudding). All of it was really wonderful! My only complaint... More
