I'm trying to think of the last time I enjoyed a Mexican food restaurant less. No local nor national brews, runny mole, average food, poor parking situation. But, at least the waiter had a good sense of humor, who replied, "No alcohol, sir, but we have the best chimichangas in town."

I stopped in that restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews and I had excellent meal. Smoothies are "must try": I tried spinach, pineapple & lemon and it was great. Red Trout al Majo de Ajo was delicious as well.

At the recommendation of a friend, we stopped here for nachos & smoothies. The nachos were delicious. So the next night we came back for dinner -- just wonderful. The place isn't fancy or anything - we sat on the patio for the snack and because of rain, sat inside for dinner. Again - not fancy, but the food was... More

We stopped here for dinner based on the reviews and had a very good meal. I had the shrimp enchiladas and there were nice shrimp in a tasty chipotle cream sauce. My husbands combination plate was good, the highlight of which was the relleno. Next time I'll have the relenno dinner. We were there early and the service was good... More

We ate on the airy patio, used Wi-Fi and enjoyed great seafood based Mexican and a wonderful Mango Liquado at very reasonable price. Service was excellent.

This is a wonderful little restaurant not far from the plaza. My husband had one of the best mole dishes ever! The food is excellent and the service is great. Don't forget the delicious guacamole and chips.

Went because it had good reviews for food. We were sat right away but it took about 40 minutes before someone took our order. The food was also slow to come out. The food was good but they do not sell beer or wine.

I had the trout in a flavorful sauce with sautéed veggies and a bit of chipotle mayo on the side, which was great with the trout. I had a side of a chili relleno -- something I rarely get to try because of my Celiac disease. The waiter was very knowledgeable about gluten contamination; nearly everything on the menu was... More

My girlfriend and I found this place SO fantastic!!!!!! The guacamole is a MUST (comes with the freshest salsa too!) and then we ate the shrimp tacos until we could eat no more!!! Great food...would love to go back!

We were recommended to this place while shopping around, and checked it out, but did not end up eating there for dinner. We stopped on our way out of Santa Fe to eat lunch here which looked much better that dinner (and it was cheaper). The building is a little bit crowded and run down, but the out door seating... More
