The food was just OK, way below what i expected from Mexican food in New Mexico. BUT - my bill was $9.69; I added $2 tip totaling $11.69. The amount on my credit card bill was $12.49. Not enough to be worth filing a protest, but if they do this to everyone, they can add quite a bit to their... More

Small town with few options but wow what a good meal. Clean restaurant with very good service and the Mexican style food was authentic and delicious. I've eaten Chile Rellenos a lot and this was the best. Just the right amount of spice. Rally liked it.

We got a variety of different types of food and all were ok, but the tacos were really delicious. There were several folks there that were from Santa Rosa and they were ALL eating the Mexican food.

This was a very clean restaurant, and the service was good. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing.. I ordered Pork Chops, but I got 2 pork cutlets that were tasteless and tough like rubber... the mashed potatoes were instant, as was the gravy... very poor quality but priced like it was grand... reminded me of the auto repair shops in...

We ate at the Santa Fe Grill based upon the recommendation of the desk clerk at our hotel, and we were very pleased with the experience. My taco salad was OK. My husband, however, ordered the chile rellenos, and he really loved them. I sampled his choice and had to agree. If we come through town again, the rellenos will... More

The desk clerk at La Quinta suggested this restaurant, so I thought I'd give it a try. The waiter was a nice young man who checked on me frequently. I ordered the enchilada plate with rice, beans and guacamole. I don't eat spicy foods so I asked the waiter to let the kitchen know that they should not put the... More

I had a great meal here a couple nights back. What I ordered was an "Indian Taco" which had beans and beef inside Indian Frybread, topped with cheese. It was great. The frybread was tasty, and so was the meat. I also really liked their potato chips and sopapillas. I think the grill is a good place to have dinner... More

Traveling and stopped over night in Santa Rosa NM. Looking for a seafood and steak place, according to hotel desk clerk, no such place there. She suggested this place. VERY overpriced, food less than ordinary. Imagine a Mexican restaurant that doesn't even bring a complimentary bowl of chips and salsa to the table. If you want them you pay several... More

Horrible! Horrible ! Horrible! Over priced. My kid loves cheese and threw it up tasting it. My husband tasted it to see if he was just being picky and he almost puked. I had the carnitas with rice on the side, my rice tasted like rice with watery tomato sauce and the beef had no flavor but pepper and the... More

When we first walked in we were overwhelmed by a feeling of sadness. A heavy melancholy feeling ached in all of our hearts. We dragged ourselves to our booth where we found contrasting seasonal decorations and a menu that was totally geared toward seniors. The food was pretty good, which made our happy meters increase, but then we saw......the hair.... More
