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!

Stopped in on the way to Balloon Fiesta and had Indian Tacos. Really good, regular order was more than I could eat. Nice decor, very good service

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. The place is very nice -appears to have been renovated or restored and eveything is first class . The food and service were very god... More

This is one of the few restaurants in town, but it's obviously a good one, as there were a lot of locals here for lunch. I had the Santa Fe chicken sandwich-a whole chicken breast, green chilies,lettuce, etc-very tasty. My husband had the Santa Fe BLT-also had green chilies-also very tasty. Good food, good service, good price.

My wife and I stopped here at the La Quinta and looked at reviews online and chose the Santa Fe Grill for dinner. The atmosphere was nice and the restaurant was clean. I ordered the Carne Adovada Burrito with a green chile sauce, and Barb ordered fried zuchini sticks because she wasn't too hungry. The waitress warned me that the... More

I was seated quickly. Food was super good and fresh. Place looked very clean and I even peeked in the kitchen. Food came out fast and hot. Waitress nice and very attentive. The only three cons, You can only have two drinks...period. At 7.50 you would think you could have as many as you like. Hostess borderline rude and gave... More

Stopped here on the way to Albuquerque. The restaurant is very clean, not a bit of dust to be found. Rest rooms are clean and modern. Food is obviously freshly made and with pride. Tried two of the Monday specials. Indian bread taco had fresh made bread and maybe the best green sauce I've ever had. The shredded chicken burrito... More
