I think I may be nice in giving it two stars. Like someone else said, the chips came out in a stainless steel bowl that looks like my dogs bowl. Really weird. My husband got the shredded beef chimichanga. It was alright but nothing special. I got the ground beef tacos...with salt. A LOT of... read more

Also ordered a virgin bloody Mary and was charged the same price as one having alcohol. Manager said there was nothing he could do about it that's just the way they do. My friend purchased CALDO...

The wait staff at Santa Fe is outstanding! Everyone is friendly and helpful. The owner is always there, often waiting on tables himself. The food quite good and reasonably priced. Our family eats there about once every week. We have never had a single problem with the food. The atmosphere is excellent with a bright, colorful interior, good music on... More

We were happy to find this restaurant on Restaurant.com... we'd gone before and really enjoyed it so we looked forward to going. We happened to get there not long before closing. There were people at one other table and the emptiness seemed to emphasize the tired & worn interior. When the food came, the waiter warned us about the very... More

Went today. Staff was friendly. Found a worm in my tamale after I had eaten about a third of it. A complete worm. Around 1/4 inch long. Told the waitress, who then got the manager. Gave him the worm. He offered a new plate, or dessert. I declined. They did remove the cost of my plate from the bill. I... More

Picked up a deal on restaurant.com for dinner at this restaurant before I realized it was "in the mall". Once that was known I actually considered not using the certificate. The mall really isn't my cup of tea. Well long story short we went, we ordered, we ate and we left. This place is a remodeled ex-ruby tuesday's. The new... More

I moved to Mobile from Phoenix AZ, and let me tell you for the first several months here I was really depressed as I searched for a decent mexican restaurant. Unfortunately it seems one person/family owns the majority of the restaurants here and they all suck. It is unimaginable to me they they can serve you a hard shell taco... More

I'd been meaning to try Mobile's Santa Fe Mexican Grill, located in Bel Air Mall near Target, for some time. Didn't expect too much, but quite a few local Mexican eateries do a good job despite unpromising looking venues. The wife, daughter, and I paid Santa Fe a visit last night... Host and waitress were prompt and nice. My first... More

Here is my experience. My daughter and I joined one of her friends at this hole in the wall. After finishing our meal the waiter brought out two bills. One for today and one that he said was from a month ago. He started loudly accusing us of running out without paying before and told us he would call the... More
