We visited this place as we went through Santa Rosa in our Route 66 Roadtrip. Authentic place, nice and friendly staff and very good Mexican food. A little bit spicy for the Spanish taste, but you'll enjoy it for sure! ;) Muchas gracias!!!

We spent the night in Santa Rosa on the way back from our cross country trip to California and got there a couple of hours before dinner so while we viewed the local sites we also checked out some prospects to have our meal. One was the Comet II drive in restaurant and a very friendly lady greeted me and when I asked if she had a go menu she offered me a full embossed regular one to take with me and bring back when we returned to eat. She also offered some comp chips and salsa. So after that kind of treatment we decided to return for dinner. We ordered tacos dinners and even though it seemed to take a long time considering the small crowd we enjoyed our meal. It wasn`t anything spectacular but still good and the friendliness there made everything better.

When we are in unknown territory we trust Tripadvisor, and our visit here was no exception. We had a fantastic lunch that provided a "New Mexico challenge" for our spice tolerance, but the desert that came with our meal calmed the fire. This was a wonderfully friendly stop for great, fresh, homemade cooking. We will plan to return. Stop in if you are near! :)

A little place on Historic Route 66, The food is excellent and plentiful. Their homemade salsa is fantastically beyond words. As they proclaim in their menu, it's not Mexican food, it New Mexican Cuisine. The Chile Verde with potatoes and pork is terrific on the enchiladas. This is a must visit when in Santa Rosa!

Just what we were looking for! Not fancy, just great cooking! We had a delicious beef enchilada plate with red chili sauce and cheese. Oh my goodness! While it was almost too spicy for this Texas girl, I could not stop eating. We carried the accompanying sopapillas home with us, but ate the hot custard dessert, made fresh each day. You will not go wrong by stopping at this Route 66 gem!
