Santa Fe is a fine steakhouse and certainly one of the Valley's top restaurants. Refined decor and inviting courtyard a draw, besides excellent wine selection and prime beef.

Tucked away in corner of a small plaza, SANTA FE is quite a HAPPENING PLACE! You'll enter thru a very ROMANTIC Patio where you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine while you wait for a table or relax enjoying your meal. Inside you'll either go to the cantina or to the left & you'll enter the restaurant where... More

We have been eating here for years. The menu is small but the cuisine is divine. Wine list for all pallets and a drink menu full of concoctions. The atmosphere is cozy especially during the cooler days. But inside or out this is a place for a date, party, anniversary or just a quick drink at the bar. It is... More

The steaks here are probably the best in Mcallen and the ambiance is really good. That being said the prices are such as other higher end steakhouses over the Us which offer better quality steaks and way better venues. If youre in the mood for a good steak this is it but be prepared to spend a pretty penny.

I used TA to find this local spot and it was exactly as described. We were able to have a brief drink in the bar before dinner and the beer and wine quality was excellent . They served all 15 of us timely and capably without too much fuss. Everyone loves their food. Although we did not have our own... More

I had the best fish I have ever had at the Santa Fe Steakhouse. Service was incredible, drinks were great, and they have an extensive selection of wine. We had the angels on horseback as an appetizer - they were very good too. This restaurant has a great atmosphere and is pricey, but worth it! Great for a special occasion... More

The food is great with many choices of entres. Steak is of course the specialty. There is also chicken and seafood. I normally get the shrimp, which is very good. The rest of my family get the steaks. It has great atmosphere and I would highly recommend the Santa Fe. Warning it is expensive but worth it.

Went to this restaurant with a colleague while in a business trip to McAllen. I had a filet mignon with asparagus and crab meat on top of the steak. Very good steak, with good flavor and very tender. Overall, very good meal.

I ways like to go to Santa feel to eat dinner. It is pricey so cannot do it often. I usually order the prime rib. It has good flavor. For desert they have good bread pudding.
