Good basic Mexican food

Stopped in on a road trip because it was convenient. Typical Mexican restaurant menu. Food was well prepared and tasty. Good but not out of the ordinary.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. The Mexican food that we ordered was fine, nothing fabulous, but definitely acceptable. The service was mediocre, at best. We had to ask for refills for our water. Good grief. The place was not crowded at all and we expected MUCH better service than we got. I'd try another place next time.

We enjoyed the staff here, comfortable seating. Food was very good with fast service and a beer. Sign on the table saying each of us would only be served two drinks, got a chuckle out of that. :)

I agree with the other reviews. Service is fine, rather pricy for what you get. We ordered Senior plates, enchiladas. The beans did taste like they were out of a can - kind of like canned chile. The rice was bland and tasted tomatoey. The enchilada was ok. I just live in the west where we have authentic mexican food,... More

Stopped here for breakfast and had good selections, including Mexican/SW dishes. I got the Carne Adovada and if you haven't had it before, it can be spicy (which is part of the dish) but also has good flavor!

We stopped in for lunch on a cold rainy day. This place has been a favorite on trips in the past. The Santa Fe Grille had been closed for several years but has since re-opened.
